Happy wrap to everyone on cursed!!! #RepostPlus @katherinelangford – – – – – – 10 months ago we started the journey of @cursed, and very quickly it became apparent that this story was much greater than anyone of us had imagined. It’s been the most empowering feeling getting to go to work every day and tell the story of a true heroine; capable and strong, but especially to tell it with so many other women at the helm – from executive producers, directors, heads of hair and make up, head of Costume, Head of Art Department, Head Armourer, script supervisor, stunts, grips, camera, video; daily team Nim….it reinforced how important having your story told truthfully is, especially as a woman. I hope when this comes out that it gives you the power to thrive to the fullest, like it’s given all of us this past year. ⚔️
Skarsgard will play Merlin the Magician in this upcoming series. Skarsgard is most known for his role as Floki in the History channel’s ‘Vikings’. He’s also been in HBO’s Westworld and the 2010 film ‘The Way Back’, as well as many projects in Sweden. Of course, you know his famous family that includes Stellan, Alexander, and Bill Skarsgard.
Here is an official description of the series:
“A re-imagining of Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, 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.”
‘Cursed’ will hit Netflix sometime in 2020.
