the writer's were quoted in the RT when it started saying they've got a 5-year plan so i wouldn't be surprised if both Lancelot and Mordred didn't reappear.
i hope they dont have problems with the US actor for Lancelot.

He seems to have done most of his acting work in the UK, so it wouldn't appear to be a problem for him working in the UK.

Re: Merlin on BBC1 (SPOILERS)

yeah, he's actually from America, but moved here did a load of work, briefly went back to America as Isaac in Heroes and returned to the UK where he's doing the narration for Heroes Unmasked for S3.

Re: Merlin on BBC1 (SPOILERS)

Didn't see it this week, but I did discover our own Sid (as in Dr Bashir) is in an upcoming episode...

ETA - he's in episode 10 (November 22nd) playing a bandit called Kanan...

Re: Merlin on BBC1 (SPOILERS)

Best episode so far. The show rose above its fluffy origins here. I figured the kid was Mordred, but still a heck of a reveal at the end, and the fact that Merlin was quite prepared to let the boy die was quite shocking, and just on the word of a dragon!

Plus we're starting to see little moments that will surely bult towards Morgana going bad, and I really like how they've continued the evolution of Arthur. Anyone else thinking that eventually it will come down to Arthur having to take the crown from Uther?

Yeah, I was thinking that, Uther seems to be blinded by his hatred of magic, to the point where he'd end up causing the destruction of the kingdom in order to fight it.

He's a fanatic alright, and he doesn't seem to comprehend that magic is a natural thing, that people will continue to be born magical as Morgana and Merlin have been, he can never eradicate it.

Well you might be out of luck there, the first volume is out soon, but it doesn't look like it's gonna be all that cheap, £24.99 RRP, or around £15.99 online.

"Do you believe in political parties?" "Yeah, I believe in them, they exist." That was a fantastic answer.

Re: Merlin on BBC1 (SPOILERS)

Apparently Giles is sexy...
Michelle Ryan has admitted that she was in awe of her "sexy" Merlin co-star Anthony Head.

"I never, ever get nervous working with actors," the former EastEnders and Bionic Woman actress told Radio Times. "But with Anthony, I don't know why, I'm so starstruck!"

Ryan, who plays scorned sorceress Nimueh in the family drama, explained that Head "definitely has that sex appeal... and he's so cool. He has that presence".
