Katherine Langford Transforms Into A Hawt Medieval Warrior In Sneak Peek At Her New Netflix Series 'Cursed'
We all got our first glimpse of the lovely (and Aussie!) Katherine Langford via Netflix hit ‘13 Reasons Why’ when she starred as Hannah Baker. Now, she’s a household name in Hollywood, starring in ‘Knives Out’ and ‘Love, Simon’ and now a new Netflix show ‘Cursed’.
But unlike the halls of Liberty High School, Langford has ditched the jeans and tees and is donning a sword and corset and getting wet in a lake. Y’know, as you do when you’re part of a remake based on the King Arthur legend.
New pics have emerged of a sword-wielding, medieval-looking Langford emerging from a lake very wet and very angry. RANGE. She stars as Nimue in the new series, the famed Lady of the Lake, who ‘Monty Python’ once famously referred to as “strange women lying in ponds distributing swords.” Judging by these pictures, er, it looks about right to us.
Based on the novel by Thomas Wheeler, the 10-episode series asks the question: "But what if the Sword has chosen a Queen?" Of which, hopefully, the show answers.
According the official synopsis, this is the go:
“Cursed is a reimagining of the 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.”
New Netflix binge? We think so. While it doesn’t yet have a release date, it’s expected to arrive sometime in the summer (our winter) of 2020.
As for Langford, we can’t wait to see her level up her fighting skills and cut loose at the Lady of the Lake.
