Cameras will begin rolling on the Irish set of the historical drama ‘Camelot’ on Monday, June 28th and will see Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love) in the role of Merlin opposite Bond girl Eva Green’s Morgana. Other cast members for the 10 part drama series include Jamie Campbell Bower (New Moon) and Tamsin Bower (4.3.2.1).

’Camelot’, a new 10 part drama series, is set to commence shooting in Ardmore Studios. The drama is based on the 15th century epic King Arthur biographical novel by Thomas Malory.

As previously mentioned Joseph Fiennes will play the part of Merlin, mentor and friend of Jamie Campbell-Bower’s King Arthur. Eva Green will take on the part of Morgana, sorceress and half sister of Arthur, whilst Tamsin Egerton will play the role of Arthur’s infamously unfaithful Queen Guinevere. Foster brother of King Athur, Sir Kay will be played by Canadian actor Peter Mooney (Summer’s Blood) and, finally ‘Meet Joe Black’ actress Clair Forlani will play Arthur’s mother, Igraine.

Both Fiennes and Green have filmed in Ireland in recent times – the former shooting feature film ‘The Escapist’ opposite Dominic Cooper and Liam Cunningham and the latter starring in ‘Cracks’, a feature film shot in Dublin and Wicklow.

’The Tudors’ maestro Michael Hirst is the creator of the new drama which is penned by Chris Chibnall (Life on Mars) and based on Thomas Malory’s 15th century work ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’ (Arthur’s Death). The producers on board the project are Douglas Rae (Becoming Jane) and Michael Park from Ecosse Films and Morgan O’Sullivan (P.S. I Love You) from Irish based World 2000 Entertainment.

The drama will be shot for broadcast on US cable station, Network Starz. The executive producers involved are Oscar winner Graham King (The Departed); Craig Cegielski, president of GK-TV; Octagon’s James Flynn (P.S. I Love You); John Weber (The Tudors) and Anne Thomopoulos (executive producer, Rome). Extended casting is currently underway for the drama and is being carried out by Frank and Nuala Moiselle who previously oversaw the casting for ‘The Tudors’.
