Katherine Langford played Hannah Baker in Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why between 2017-2018. Now, she returns to Netflix with the her new series, Cursed. Find out more about that show here.
Australian actress Katherine Langford entered public prominence back in 2017, with her role as Hannah Baker on 13 Reasons Why. The series’ first season aired in March of that year. Meanwhile, Langford’s portrayal of Hannah, a troubled teen who ultimately commits suicide, made her a household name.
However, it was announced in 2018 that Langford would be leaving 13 Reasons Why after the second season. Before and after her time on the series, she has also starred in films. An example is Love, Simon (reuniting with Alex Standall actor, Miles Heizer). Langford also appeared in Knives Out, featuring an ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis and Daniel Craig. Additionally, the actress appeared in a deleted scene of Avengers: Endgame.
Now, Katherine Langford is making her triumphant return to Netflix with Cursed. As per Deadline, the series is “re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther.”.
Langford stars in the lead role of Nimue, with the cast also featuring Devon Terrell (Barry) as King Arthur and Gustaf Skarsgard (Vikings) as Merlin, respectively. Meanwhile, The Originals’ Daniel Sharman plays the Weeping Monk and Westworld actor Peter Mullan has been cast in an undisclosed role.
Production on the series began in January 2019 and was expected to be completed by September of that year.
Cursed will stream on Netflix at an unknown time in 2020.
