I was using my own accent for all the auditions and at the last stage they were like, ‘Well, we want to try you with an English accent’. And I think it was a good decision in the end, because I think it’s quite a bold decision already to do a show about a young Merlin, and a young Arthur, so making Merlin from Northern Ireland as well was probably pushing the boat out a bit far.

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.
