'CURSED' ARTHURIAN SERIES
GATHERS ITS KNIGHTS & LADIES
Last Autumn your trusted spy informed you that Katherine Langford will lead new Arthurian epic series CURSED at Netflix and now they've found
the rest of the cast and it seems they think mediaeval England was very diverse. Devon Terrell, Gustaf Skarsgård, Peter Mullan, Lily Newmark, Shalom Brune Franklin, Daniel Sharman (who did not exactly shine in Medici series with his lack of charisma, acting chops and any on screen depth), Sebastian Armesto, Emily Coates, Catherine Walker and Billy Jenkins will also star in the ten episode series that starts shooting this month.

CURSED, based on the Lady of the Lake legend, it follows Nimue (Katherine Langford), a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther.
It is a coming of age story whose themes are familiar to our own
time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless
war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.
