Merlin favourite Bradley James reveals unlikely ''bromance'' with on-screen rival

Mar 28, -Angel and Katie tease Bradley and Colin about Merlin and Arthur's relationship. -Like Merlin, Colin's a bit of a lightweight. -Katie's body double. I love how the relationship between Colin and Bradley is almost identical to that Merlin Commentary Merlin Serie, Merlin Cast, Merlin And Arthur, King Arthur. Merlin is a British fantasy-adventure drama television programme created by Julian Jones, Jake Michie, Julian Murphy, and Johnny Capps, starring Bradley James as King Arthur and Colin Morgan as Merlin. Her relationship with Arthur at first causes conflict within the kingdom, as Uther considers her unworthy and forbids.

He's just weird in general. In terms of whether or not we're proper mates now, well, I would say yes, definitely. We get along very well. We do a lot of talking nonsense. I heard that term for the first time recently in America. So long as it's not taken too literally. Wearing sackcloth, the yearold Ulsterman's taking time out in the on-set canteen, a giant marquee in the outskirts of the chateau's vast grounds. He picks up on people's quirks and habits and is very good at impressions.

He can do just about anyone on the cast.

But we've grown used to each other when we've been filing together. We're used to the quirks now. When we're here in France, we sometimes go into Paris at the weekends. But for Colin the biggest thrill was getting senior cast member and chief mentor Richard Wilson, aka,Giaus, on the Space Mountain at Disneyland. We were a bit worried about him but he's so resilient. You forget he's a year-old. But he was well up for it - although he did go home after that one. He's a living legend, a national treasure.

He's very much a father figure and takes you under his wing. There's more of that this series. I'm aware that I maybe can't let loose in the way I might have before. But it's not massively different. And I'm like,'ho, ho, ho'.

I think there needs to be a little bit of caution over that. I agree with that, as well. The Arthurian legends have been developed and re-told, over the years.

How is the return of Morgana going to change the vibe in Season 3? How do you think that will add to the show?

Well, I always say that the best thing about doing the show is the guests that come on. You find yourself learning from them quite a bit and enjoying hanging out with them. And, the guests we get seem to be very fun people to have around. But, in terms of commercially speaking for the show, Harry Potter is very popular. I just think the producers have gone out and found people who would enhance the show. Bradley, how does Arthur see his relationship with his father?

Arthur has grown up with purely his father, and his only parental figure has been his father, so his father is such a huge influence on him. But, as time has gone on, and as the show has gone on, you see Arthur starting to figure things out for himself, where he has disagreed with his father. So, as time goes on, I think it just becomes a lot more questioning from Arthur, in how Uther does things.

Merlin is the only one that knows what her true power is and how she can use that.

A lot of the great comedic moments of this series come out of the relationship between Arthur and Merlin. How did that develop between you? Is it all acting, or does any of it carry over, off-camera?

We do tend to have quite a good time and crack quite a few jokes. And, it helps that fluidity and that ease, when it comes to doing scenes with comedy involved. We work together a lot. Once we get on set and get through the course of filming the series, we have a very good time. I feel very fortunate about that because it could have been a hell of a lot worse.

We also can tone it down and focus on it, as well. Because we get on so well, it never feels like work, which is great. Do you end up with a lot of bloopers then? They tend to be all of me, messing up my lines.

Is there anything that you wish you could change about your characters? Oh, Arthur gets knocked unconscious quite a lot. And, Merlin tries to bring him back from unconsciousness quite a lot. Yeah, learn the spell already for how to do that. Colin, if you could become a wizard would you want to?

If you could do something fun with it, what would you do? Whatever that one thing is that makes people happy, if there was some spell that could give people that one thing each, I guess that would be a good thing to do.

Was there anything about Season 3 that you particularly enjoyed doing? Because it was one of my favorites from the Arthurian legend, one of the things that I really enjoyed doing was the legend of the crystal cave. In my head, it was fun to imagine what it was going to look like because there was a lot of CGI involved, in seeing visions of the future reflected within crystals.

For me, it was doing a scene where a certain group of guys sit around a certain piece of furniture and get together.

That was easily the best moment for me. What skills will you take away from your experience of working on Merlin?

You learn so many different skills on the show. Bradley, after three seasons, how good are you at broadsword? I would imagine that I was better than when I started. Colin, how did you originally come to work on the show?

It was the same process it has been for any other acting job. It was a case of a script that came through, I auditioned for it, and I got called back.

I think there was a series of maybe four or five call-backs, and that happened over a period of maybe three or four weeks.

Obviously, the more you go back, the more you want to be a part of it. We could see that it would be a fantastic adventure to embark on. And, to arrive at the point where you get offered the role was amazing.
