The three lead actors of  “Camelot” Joseph Fiennes,  Eva Green and Jamie Campbell Bower will take a trip to the MipTV Film Festival in Cannes this summer to promote the series,  which will also have its first international premiere then. The cast will attend a 2-hour screening of the first two episodes,  following an exclusive Q&A Session.

Read about it  here:

LONDON — English thesp Jamie Campbell Bower, who starred in Tim Burton’s “Sweeney Todd,” will be reigning over the Croisette at next month’s Mip TV sales mart.

Campbell Bower, who plays the young King Arthur, is to join fellow cast members Joseph Fiennes and Eva Green in Cannes to help hype the new Starz skein “Camelot,” which makes its U.S. bow in April.

“Camelot” is distributed by GK-tv, which is responsible for bringing over the talent.

Reed Midem’s director of television Laurine Garaude predicts that Mip will witness a lot of activity around TV drama, inspired by shows like the keenly anticipated “Camelot.”

“We are seeing increasing amounts of fiction created specifically for the international market and a lot of co-production in this area,” she said.

Rodolphe Belmer, chief operating officer Canal Plus, and David Frank, CEO, Zodiak Media Group, will present keynotes on April 4, kicking off the market’s 2011 producers’ forum, which is focusing on co-production.

Sorry for taking so long with the trailer but I had to look everywhere for a accessable version for you guys and fans outside of the U.S! The second trailer is a huge improvement to the first one due to the music that was used! Take a look:

BTW,  does anyone know the name of the music played at around 34 seconds?  If anyone knows,  please post in the comments! Thanks!

UPDATE: Here is another promo!

Starz! seems to be quite busy in promoting their upcoming original series “Camelot”! This is the latest teaser. It is very short but I think that it is nicely done! What do you guys think? You are very welcome to comment about it!

Eva Green recently attended the TCA Winter Press Tour which was held in Pasadena, CA to promote the upcoming new Starz! series “Camelot”.  In an interview,  posted on Collider.com,  Eva talked about her character Morgan,  the relationship betwen Morgan and Merlin,  the amazing costumes on the show and  magic.

Here is the interview:

Question: What’s it like to step into the role of Morgan?

EVA GREEN: It’s a great character. It’s full of colors, and it’s a gift. At drama school, I always wanted to play dark characters, like Lady Macbeth and Cleopatra, so it was a dream. It’s not a clichéd role. She’s not evil. I see her more as damaged. She believes herself to be the rightful heir to the throne, but because she’s a woman, she’s denied the throne and she will do absolutely anything to get it back.

With all the film work that you do, was it a difficult decision to sign on for a TV series and play a character for a longer period of time?

GREEN: Yeah. The good thing about it is that it’s five months and I will have time to do movies in between. This is such an iconic story and you have 10 episodes to explore a character. It’s not a girlfriend role that you could have in a movie. It’s a real ballsy character. She has some guts. That’s nice to play.

What was the most fun part of this shoot?

GREEN: I love Ireland. I feel very at peace there. It’s just magical and beautiful.

The rivalry between Merlin and Morgan is legendary. What is that chemistry like?

GREEN: This Camelot is very different. There are so many versions on the myth. In that one, Merlin is Morgan’s sworn enemy. Morgan also hates Merlin because he has put Arthur on the throne, but she respects him. She adores toying with him, like a cat with a mouse. So, it’s fun. We have a lot of taunting and teasing scenes. Their relationship to magic is quite different also. Merlin is world-weary when it comes to magic. He has seen and experienced too much. And for Morgan, magic is new to her and she’s drawn to it. It’s very exciting. It’s like a drug.

How much magic will there be on the show? Are there going to be great battles between Merlin and Morgan?

GREEN: You see people changing shapes, but it’s mainly ancient, pagan magic. It’s magic using nature and the forces of nature, like air, water, earth and fire. It’s not Harry Potter or Walt Disney. We don’t wave a wand.

What is it like to work with both Joseph Fiennes and Jamie Campbell Bower? What is the difference in dynamic between the two actors and how did they enrich your performance?

GREEN: I’ve always wanted to work with Joe. He’s a very charismatic, powerful actor. He has a very strong presence. Even if he doesn’t talk, he’s extremely powerful. He’s done so much stage work, and I love the fact that he’s a very different Merlin. He’s also quite damaged. He’s not the Merlin with the pointy hat and the white beard. He’s a sexy Merlin. It’s interesting. And, I see Jamie more like my little brother. He’s so much fun. He’s very naughty. He’s wonderful. He’s nice to be around, and he’s very rock ‘n’ roll. He doesn’t take himself seriously and he’s very humble. I think he will go very far.

In playing a character like this, do the costumes and hairstyles really help give you a sense of the character?

GREEN: Totally, yeah. I really worked together with Joan Bergin, who did The Tudors. I brought a lot of paintings and we worked together on it. It was a real team. We had the time. We start with medieval clothes that are kind of conventional and, as the character goes, it’s more Oriental and exotic looking. It’s quite interesting. She’s more centered towards the later episodes.

What is the balance between effects and practical sets?

GREEN: Camelot looks amazing. I’ve never seen it like this. Otherwise, there’s not much special effects. I’m transforming and shape-shifting sometimes, which was really physical. I met a shaman for that. It was fascinating and quite mad. You have to be into it.

I am personally very thrilled and excited about everything that Eva had to say about her character and the show overall. What do you guys think? Let me hear your thoughts! Also, don´t forget to check out a special “sneak preview” of the show on February 25 at 11.00 p.m!
