** The episode "Always" shows Arthur, Léodagan, Lancelot, and Calogrenant receiving a message stating that Perceval is dead, with the aftermath of that news. In the end it appears that he [[NotQuiteDead wasn't quite dead]]. That episode was written after an April 1st, when a journalist wrote an article announcing the death of Franck Pitiot (the actor who plays Perceval). Turns out, the journalist took for granted an Internet April's Fool.

No nepotism here, though: they are all skilled actors, mostly from theater. He has also cast his children and wife in minor roles.

* YouLookFamiliar: The direct-to-video pilot episodes show a few casting swaps before the series proper:
** Simon Astier was initially a mere servant and cook's helper before taking the role of Yvain.
** Audrey Fleurot started off as Angharad before becoming the Lady of the Lake.

Turns out, the journalist took for granted an april fool made by an internaut.
** The episode "Au bonheur des Dames" shows for the first time Bohort's wife, Berlewen. Alexandre Astier created the character after reading in some newspapers that Bohort was "Kaamelott's crypto-gay", because he didn't want anyone to "write the show for him".
** Also, there is a very rare example of subversion of this trope (which could also qualify as a RealLife SmarterThanYouLook): Kadoc, a character so stupid that he would be considered mentally deficient today, is played by Brice Fournier, a man who, before becoming actor, achieved a "classe préparatoire HEC" (a two-years preparatory class for entrance to HEC, a "Grande Ecole" specialized in business), a diploma in the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce of Lyon, a BA Management&Marketing in the University of Canterbury, a MBA in the Fordham Business School of New York, and a diplome in the Gemological Institute of America. Oh, and he opened his own restaurant in an upscale and trendy neighbourhood of Paris, too.
