Merlin - Bradley James and Katie McGrath Interview

HC: Bradley, Arthur begins the series as arrogant, unlikable. Can you describe the process of taking the character from that initial place to where we find him in Season 5?

BJ: One of the really appealing things about Arthur was the fact that he was far from perfect, and I was aware that I was about to go on the journey of making him so. He becomes the Arthur that everyone is familiar with in myth and legend eventually, and where we begin with him, that seems like such an impossible task. It was a huge honor to play King Arthur because he means so much to the heritage in this country, albeit, legend but to be linked with that name and that legend has been a huge honor.

HC: Can you share a little about your last day on set?

KM: My last day on set was very emotional, I had Colin come in and do my last clapboard. It was like a carnivorous beast running in and grabbing the board out of everyone’s hands. It was a good laugh.

BJ: I share the same sign of the zodiac as Arthur. We’re both Libras, and so I was able to look at the last day with a very balanced view, because at the same time as being a quite emotional time, there was quite a lot of work to do on the last day, and so you had to not let that get in the way…. But underlying all of that, if I watch the scenes back, I’ll see that kind of emotional side to me that was very present that day.

HC: Now that “Merlin” has reached its conclusion, what’s next for you as actors?

KM: Sky’s the limit, really. Who knows where we’re going to go. I think “Merlin” has opened up a lot of doors for us that I don’t think we necessarily would have had.

HC: Bradley, there have been rumors about an Arthur spinoff. Is that something you’d be interested in?

BJ: It was something discussed, but I think it’s time for me to hang up the chain mail, to be honest with you, and pass the mantle on to the next person who shall take on the throne of Arthur Pendragon. The post-”Merlin” era is an exciting time to look forward to…. Variety is the spice of life. That’s the fantastic thing about acting is all the different challenges it can provide you with. To limit yourself just to one would be foolish, therefore I’m looking forward to different things that come my way.
