Contains a slight spoiler for season 3 of Merlin
It’s a crisp, frosty morning in the Welsh capital of Cardiff and Colin Morgan still can’t believe his good fortune on landing the title role of Merlin in the hit TV series. It’s been, well, magic.
On the first day of filming series three, the tall, dark and, yes, handsome actor takes time out to ponder the meteoric rise of Merlin – and his own Irish luck.
It’s been a dream start to Morgan’s career. Having finished training just three years ago, he landed one-off parts in The Catherine Tate comedy series (“She’s considered a bit of a genius here”) and a Doctor Who episode penned by TV guru Russell T. Davies. Together with critically acclaimed performances on stage, this earned him an Outstanding Newcomer Variety Showbiz award as well as a nomination for the Monte Carlo TV Festival awards 2009.

I am SO excited at the return of Merlin S3. There are lovely spoilers coming out that make me hopeful there will be stronger stories next season, so here’s crossing my fingers for the return of season 1 goodness. I know the BBC prefers 13-episode seasons, but this has taken off so well, that I had been hoping that season 3 might, well, forgive me here, magically got a longer season…yes, I pun badly.
