Actress Katherine Langford made a big splash in a very short time in her career. Born in Perth, Australia, the young star started officially working as an actress at age 19 when she appeared in three short films between 2015 and 2016. Langford would officially catch her big break in 2017 and earn a Golden Globe nomination for her role as the young high schooler Hannah who took her own life in Netflix’s controversial hit series 13 Reasons Why. With her character seeming to have reached the end of her arch in the series, Langford is free to move on to the next project, though she won’t have to move very far regarding networks.
The Wrap is reporting that Langford has accepted the lead role in Netflix’s upcoming series Cursed, based on the novel by comic book legend Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler. Langford will be playing Nimue, the Lady of the Lake featured in the stories of King Arthur. The book, which is due to be published by Simon & Schuster in Fall 2019, will touch on topics like obliteration of the natural world, war, and religious terror. The series should be set to release shortly after the book hits stores.
Miller and Wheeler will serve as executive producers with Wheeler also serving as writer and showrunner. Zetna Fuentes (Ray Donovan, Jessica Jones, The Deuce, Shameless) will serve as executive producer and director on the first two episodes. Moreover, while the story of Langford’s Hannah character has reached its conclusion, 13 Reasons Why will still continue on with its third season due out in 2019.
