Taking a role in a well-known fantasy film is always a gamble. When Helen Mirren appeared as Morgana in Excalibur, she put all her fate in director John Boorman’s hand. In 2017 she told the Huffington Post ” It was quite difficult to follow and I think it was very much to John Boorman’s credit that he crafted this very magical world out of what could have been a real mess. Some of those scenes when we read them during rehearsal sounded absolutely embarrassing! We were all like ‘My God, how can we say these lines?’ But with all the other elements, it all started falling into place, especially the lighting and the beauty of the film. ”
