The CAMELOT tv series brought to us by AXN beyond is is not your ordinary King Arthur story.
The Arthur has been told by many in so many ways, but i don't think it was ever told in a way in film as well as CAMELOT.
The story started with the Kingdom of Camelot being in a state of turmoil as the King Uther Pendragon is murdered through supernatural means.
Sorcerer Merlin played by Joseph Fiennes (FlashForward, Shakespeare in Love) came too late to save the dying came which forced him to reveal Uther's secret son hidden since birth as the heir to the throne.
Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, The Twilight Saga: New Moon) as the young King Arthur.
Morgan who is Arthur's beautiful but ruthless half sister who is responsible for King Uther's death played by Eva Green (The Golden Compass, Casino Royale).
Tamsin Egerton as Guinevere, Claire Forlani as Igraine and Peter Mooney as Kay.
I am not easily captivated be any TV series and it takes a lot of time for me to get a feel and to see if the series is worth to watch but for this one, they may have caught my attention. They have this phenomenal actors and talents in this production and it will be interesting to see where they take these stories and classical actors.
You may be deceived by Bower as the young Arthur as if it's is going to be difficult for him to lift the Excalibur, but Bower will grow on you. This is the when Arthur learns how to become Arthur, as the boy learning to understand his destiny.
