The patchwork of fields around Wicklow, Ireland, are echoing to the clash of heavy broadswords as King Arthur’s knights ride into battle. The young Arthur himself is leading his men in defence of throne and realm.
From the castle on the hill behind him he is watched by his half-sister, the sorceress Morgan Le Fay, who is plotting his downfall so she can inherit his crown.
Yes, just another working day in Camelot, the fabled capital of Arthur’s medieval kingdom and also the title of a mega-budget TV series that begins next month – shifted from its mythical location of Cornwall to the Irish Republic to take advantage of the stunning scenery and the local tax breaks.
‘Arthur has got his hands full with me,’ says sultry French actress Eva Green, who plays Morgan. A former Bond girl, her double agent Vesper Lynd broke Daniel Craig’s heart in his 007 debut Casino Royale and won her a Rising Star Bafta. ‘Morgan is a mass of contradictions – a saint, a healer and a witch – which confuses Arthur. She starts as somebody damaged and bitterly ruthless, yet little by little she shows her vulnerabilities.’
