CAST REVEALED FOR ATLANTIS EPIC SHOW
One of our most anticipated of the upcoming new epic shows ATLANTIS is getting new cast members! As you already know the new BBC show will replace MERLIN this Fall and will be set in the city of Atlantis, a mysterious, ancient place, a world of bull leaping, of snake haired goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants. It's into this strange, compelling realm that the young Jason arrives and an amazing adventure begins, bringing to life the vast store of Greek myths and legends re-imagined for a new generation. Earlier this winter I informed you that Robert Emms (MIRROR MIRROR) will play Pythagoras, and now he will be joined by Mark Addy (Game of Thrones), Juliet Stevenson (The Village), Sarah Parish (World Without End, Merlin), Jack Donnelly (Dancing On The Edge) and Djinn's Aiysha Hart, and Jemima Rooper (Lost in Austen)! The show will start shooting next month on the sets designed in Morocco and Wales! The lead role is yet to be revealed!
