If you’re familiar with the legend of Arthur, then you definitely know who Nimue is. You might also be incredibly intrigued by her. Well, Netflix is finally bringing us a series called ‘Cursed’ with Nimue in the forefront. This is for all of us fans of the Arthurian legend. Fans of ’13 Reasons Why’ star Katherine Langford should be excited, as well, since she is the one taking on the role of Nimue in the show.
Take a look at Katherine as Nimue in ‘Cursed’ here:
Based on the New York Times bestselling book, ‘Cursed’ is a re-imagination 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.
The series is set to launch this summer 2020 with 10 hour-long episodes. Will you be watching?
