Starz has announced that “Camelot” will debut on Friday, April 1 2011. Michael Hirst (“The Tudors”), Morgan O’Sullivan (“King Arthur”) and Graham King (“The Departed”) are among the producers behind the series, which will retell the story of Arthur’s younger years after claiming the sword in the stone and before the formation of the Knights of the Round Table.
Film veteran Joseph Fiennes (“Shakespeare In Love”) will portray a “Machiavellian” version of Merlin while “Twilight: New Moon” and “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows” actor Jamie Campbell Bower will step into the lead role as Arthur. English actress Tamsin Egerton (“18.104.22.168.”) will play Arthur’s lover, Guinevere and Eva Green (who memorably played James Bond’s first love, Vesper in “Casino Royale”) will be Morgana, Arthur’s half-sister and Merlin’s nemesis.
