KING ARTHUR

The Antagonists
The acclaimed Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård ("Insomnia”) was cast as the ruthless Cerdic, the commander of the invading Saxon forces. "Antoine is a very talented director, not only visually, but also in terms of character development and working with actors,” says Skarsgård. The actor was intrigued by Cerdic, a man for whom the end always justifies the means, even if that could mean killing his own son. "Cerdic is intelligent, but he is also very pragmatic and he is evil,” says Skarsgård. "But at that time in the Dark Ages, if you had any power and wanted to survive you had to be pretty ruthless. This is almost one thousand years before Machiavelli; it was pretty tough times.”

Stephen Dillane ("The Hours”) was cast as Merlin, the mysterious leader of the Woads who eventually joins forces with Arthur and his knights against a common enemy. Merlin is a master of guerrilla warfare, a leader who has trained his fighters to melt into their natural environment after each, short savage attack.
