The I d y l l s (or, that arthurian epic i’m owed that doesn’t suck, goddammit)
EVA GREEN as Morgan le Fay: half sister of Arthur Pendragon, high priestess of the Isle of Avalon, last serving faithful of the Triple Goddess, long-time confidante of Guinevere the Fair, the fated enchantress of the emerald isle.
TOM HIDDLESTON as King Arthur: the son of Uther Pendragon, educated in Rome, the center of the civilized world, who returned to the scattered lordships of Britain and sought to craft an empire. After defeating the invaders from the sea, he built shining Camelot, hoping to unite all of England under one flag and one faith, only to find his sister turned against him.
SOPHIE TURNER as Queen Guinevere: the daughter of Leodegrance, descended from a Roman patrician family and promised to Arthur since her birth, educated by Morgan on the Isle of Avalon and fated as the Helen of her age.
ELYES GABEL as Lancelot du Lac: long-time confidante of Arthur and the most prominent knight of the Round Table, pledged faithful and lover of his Queen Guinevere. His declaration of war tears Camelot apart.
Arthur forges his kingdom out of shining white and gold and Pendragon red, a city of innocence and chivalry and knights who would pray before they slit your throat - what good is it, when it comes down to it? What good can a city of pure white really do, when the Fates have had their say and the goddess have turned her eyes of death upon you? He was building a city that was fated to be burned away, a city forged on the principles that his beloved Romans had used so well and thrown away, Pax Arcturus - peace under Arthur, peace under tyranny. She could spit at it, could gouge her fingers into the eyes of the boy that she had once knew so well. A city of white can only ever be stained. A man like that was born to be killed. Her Gwen will tear him apart from inside, and Morgan will burn his faith to the ground.
