“People often ask me what inspired me to become an actor, and the truth is I can’t answer that. For me, it was always more like a natural instinct. Every part, every performance I have ever taken has just been about feeding that desire to act.”
"When I feel that “need” to play a character then I fight for it, sometimes I lose that fight but I’ll always fight for what I believe in, it has to feel vital and I’ve been so fortunate so far to have been given the opportunities I’ve been given.”
It’s been a great adventure, and I’ve learned so much. When we started, everything was new. It was my first real role, so everything seemed like a new experience: new lessons, new friends, new adventures. It wasn’t just Merlin coming into his own; I was growing up in front of the camera, too.
