Will ‘Once Upon a Time’ Head to Camelot in Season 5?
Now that Emma is Once Upon a Time‘s new Dark One, it seems that the rest of the Storybrooke gang will have to travel across new realms to help figure out a way to get their Savior back…and Camelot could be one of them.
We’ve met Lancelot previously, so it’s not super shocking to think that the next season of Once will take our favorite fairytale characters to Camelot, but what’s really interesting us are the casting descriptions. One thing I love about Once is its diversity among the cast and it looks like next season will continue in the same fashion.
Check out the casting call information below to see what we mean (via TVLine):
For MERLIN, Once is seeking a black Brit in his early 30s to early 40s and boasting a natural British accent to play “a man with great wisdom and intelligence beyond his years,” someone who has always put duty in front of his own desires, even at great personal cost.
ARTHUR is described as a “good and just ruler” who, beneath the surface, “is a master manipulator who can carry a grudge to the grave, and maybe beyond.” He harbors an “eternal burning love” for Guinevere that can lean toward being a bit… controlling. For this role, Once aims to cast a gent in his mid-30s to early 40s, and again a British accent is mandatory.
The casting call for GUINEVERE, meanwhile, seeks a Latina in her mid-20s to mid-30s Once Upon a Time Lancelotto play a “headstrong queen” who fell in love with her husband’s most trusted knight, the dashing Lancelot — previously played on Once by Teen Wolf‘s Sinqua Walls (at right), but (supposedly) dead in the current timeline. She now must balance her own happiness with the well-being of Camelot.
