Merlin Cast @ NTA2012 - all scenes/snippets/interviews from show

Bradley James and Colin Morgan attended the NTAs2012 on January 25th, 2012. 'Merlin' was nominated for 'Best Drama' (sadly they didn't win). At the aftershow party Bradley and Colin were interviewed.

Merlin News - LA Times spoke with MERLIN's co-creators about the final season.

"Created by Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy, "Merlin" provides a fresh take on the Arthurian legend. Irish actor Colin Morgan plays Merlin, a servant to King Arthur and a wizard-in-secret in a realm where magic has been outlawed."

"We've been blessed with four young actors that have risen to a huge task, and I think everyone forgets that when we began this series, Bradley and Colin were virtually unknown actors, virtually out of drama school, and we were asking them to lead a prime-time international series, and they stepped up to the mark. We were lucky. We were so lucky to have them, because it wouldn't always have worked. And to watch them grow as actors - and they grew very fast, actually - is a very enjoyable experience. I guess we had [Anthony Stewart] Head, and we had Richard Wilson, and they were good, wise mentors to the young cast. They really were, and they set out to be just that, and they gave them lots of great advice and lots of help and lots of support. We were lucky to have two guys who were very generous like that. But the credit must go to the young cast because to ask them to carry a big international show with so little experience was a big ask, and they delivered. They more than delivered."

"I think visually we took inspiration from "Excalibur," definitely. There are things that John Boorman did in that I think were very, very good. It certainly sat in our minds. Mary Stewart's books on Merlin I think were inspiration to us. They tell a very different story, a very different Merlin, but the way they reinvented the legend was an inspiration, definitely."

A Story of Friendship

"Merlin and Arthur. To me, ... It's a story of friendship, it's both very funny but very touching and very real. And to go from two characters who in many ways in the first series began hating each other to two characters who profoundly respect and care about each other is a great journey. Those simple journeys are always the best, and the heart of the program is not dragons and swords and myths and legends, it's that story, that friendship." ~Julia Murphy ‘Merlin’ co-creator

      @Nancy Hardin: Thanks, Nancy! I am so sad that this is the last season. I think they are talking about a movie, but don't think that is settled!
