Charlie shot a guest starring role as Charles De Batz-Castelmore, Comte D'Artagnan in the former PAX TV series "Young Blades" which premiere don Sunday, 23 January.

Based on the Alexandre Dumas novel "Young Blades" the series follows the adventures of a new generation of sword wielding warriors, the children of the infamous Three Musketeers. A light-hearted, bigger-than-life, swash-buckling primetime hour, "Young Blades" puts the spotlight on a new generation of Musketeers, no feathers and no floppy hats. These young sword fighters-in-training take on the establishment, coming of age and a mystical evil society. Often on the sly, their missions are to defend the homeland, remain loyal to France's young King Louis, and protect the honour of the musketeers against the evil Cardinal Mazarin. The series is a visual indulgence with its era-based wardrobe fit for kings, paupers and, of course, musketeers (Costume Designer Heather Lee Douglas) and its elaborate European inspired set, built in Maple Ridge, BC, where the majority of filming will take place (Production Designer Andrew Deskin).

Cast in the romantic lead role of D'Artagnan Jr. (the son of the legendary Musketeer D'Artagnan - (played by Charlie) is Vancouver's Tobias Mehler (Taken, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Stargate SG-1). The beautiful Jacqueline, played by Toronto's Karen Cliche (I Do-But I Don't, Mutant X), is a natural with the sword, but can only join the Musketeer garrison in disguise as "Jacques". Zak Santiago (The L Word, Dead Like Me, Dead Zone) and Mark Hildreth (Earthsea, X-Men: Evolution, Andromeda) both of Vancouver, also begin their Musketeer training at the garrison as Ramon and Siroc, and become fast friends and fellow adventure seekers with D'Artagnan and 'Jacques'.

Also starring as the evil Cardinal Mazarin, Michael Ironside and as Captain Duval, the head of the Musketeers, Bruce Boxleitner Sheena Easton as Queen Anne and as the young King Louis, Robert Michael Sheehan.
