Cursed’s Katherine Langford explains why Game of Thrones and The Witcher fans will love Netflix’s new fantasy thriller

'essence of magic'

CURSED star Katherine Langford has given her take on why Game of Thrones and The Witcher fans will adore Netflix's new fantasy thriller.

Bloody battles and magical cults have already been teased in the latest offering from the popular streaming service.

Cursed, based on the New York Times bestselling book by Frank Miller (Sin City, 300) and Thomas Wheeler, is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend.

13 Reason's Why star Katherine plays Nimue, a young woman with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful - and tragic - Lady of the Lake.

On the show's medieval fantasy vibes and obvious comparisons to previous hits Game of Thrones and The Witcher, she admitted to Digital Spy and other media outlets: "I get asked quite a lot by fans and people who love this genre, 'What it's like?' – I'm still trying to figure out."

"For me, Cursed is really interesting because it's not quite one or the other. It's a mixture of its own elements and it stands by itself in that sense.

"I definitely think it's a fantastical and historical piece, which is full of action and is a full-on thriller. But it also has quite a grounded quality to it."

The 24-year-old added: "It's got heavy ties to the Earth and nature, but then on the other side of the spectrum, it has this real essence of magic."

But Katherine also hinted that viewers could expect a little extra something from the forthcoming series.

She added: "I think it's probably going to create its own little genre.

"If you like Frank Miller's work or if you like fantasy, or epic shows, it definitely falls within that category."

Cursed premieres on Netflix on Friday, July 17.
