Camelot: The Untold Story Premieres on AXN Beyond Tonight

AXN Beyond premieres an epic drama series about a story familiar to all of us - Camelot. However, it takes the story on a different angle by stepping back to an earlier tragedy.

Camelot premieres across Asia and shows tonight in the Philippines, in the same week as its US debut.


The story of King Arthur has been told in many movies and TV series. But this April 4, a dark and gripping take on the medieval legend of Camelot that was never told will be revealed.

Camelot traces the rise of young King Arthur as he struggles to unite a kingdom torn by war, deception and betrayal. It started on the risky edge of turmoil involving King Uther Pendragon and the Sorcerer Merlin. Moreover, Arthur’s beautiful but ruthlessly ambitious half sister Morgan allies with dark supernatural forces and the kingdom’s enemies. She was also bitterly responsible for Uther’s death. In between all the turmooil, Arthur finds Guinevere, a beacon in the darkness and inspiration for him to grow into the king he has to become.

Shot in County Wicklow, Ireland, Camelot is being brought to life by a stellar cast. Rising star Jamie Campbell Bower plays the young Arthur, while actress Eva Green portrays key antagonist Morgan. Morgan’s foil, the resourceful, macho man-of-action Merlin is played by theatre veteran Joseph Fiennes. Budding British actress-model Tamsin Egerton is Guinevere. Other cast include Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black) and Peter Mooney (Falcon Beach).

Camelot is shot with a budget of almost US$50 million, and 400 cast and crew members. The 10-part Irish/Canadian series is a co-production by GK-tv and Tim Headington’s GK Films. Other location include Luggala Castle and the Powerscourt Estate.

Viewers of Camelot will not miss out on signature events such as the ‘sword in the stone’, the ‘Lady of the Lake’, and the beginnings of the Round Table. With a world-class production, Camelot promises an experience beyond your imagination as the epic, untold story is revealed this April on AXN Beyond.

Camelot premieres tonight - April 4, and is the first drama series on AXN Beyond to have a simulcast across Asia in the same week as its U.S. broadcast. It airs every Monday at 9pm (SG, MY, PH, HK) / 8pm (JKT).
