Netflix Star Devon Terrell Opens Up About Playing King Arthur in 'Cursed'

Devon Terrell is giving new life to King Arthur in Netflix‘s new fantasy series, Cursed.

The 27-year-old actor, who you might recognize from Barry where he played a young Barack Obama, is opening up about taking on another legendary leader on the small screen.

“They’re both super intimidating,” Devon shared with E! in a new interview about those two big roles.

Devon added that the role as a young Obama was a lot of pressure because “he’d come out of finishing his time in the office. Everyone knew that character, everyone had an idea, a lot of people had played it, so it was a lot of pressure.”

While speaking about Arthur, who he did a lot of research on before filming, Devon says that it’s “exciting to have the opportunity as a person of color to play this role.”

“As a young Black man, it was one of those things where I never expected this opportunity to come, so to get the opportunity to do that, I wanted to make an authentic, vulnerable character who people gravitated towards and who people could understand could become this myth and this legend,” he added.
