We’re all aware of the extremely beautiful and equally mysterious Lady of the Lake from the Arthurian Legend. Now, she’s getting her due credit in a Netflix original series titled Cursed.
The 10-episode series is an adaptation of Tom Wheeler’s novel of the same name. 13 Reasons Why star, Katherine Langford stars as Nimue aka The Lady of the Lake. Westworld‘s Gustaf Skarsgård stars as the legendary wizard, Merlin while actor Devon Terrell stars as Arthur.
Shalom Brune-Franklin will be playing the role of the devastatingly beautiful and shrewd Morgan le Fay while Broadchurch‘s Sebastian Armesto will essay the role of King Uther Pendragon.
This is the official premise of the show:
“Based on the New York Times bestselling book, Cursed is a reimagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a young woman 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 humble 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. Cursed 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.”
