crying merlin crying

I love the fact that Merlin was allowed to cry. He didn’t just get the typical single little man tear rolling slowly off a melancholy face. This character was SO good because he cried and wept and sobbed. He was ugly when he cried. His face was all scrunched up in sorrow when he cried. This character was REAL when he cried. We need more boys that cry. 


“He just bullies me on set and off set, it’s just… it’s like a constant thing. I mean, since we’ve come to France, it’s got really bad.”
“Oh, has it?”
“Yeah, It has.”
“Oh, it’s really bad, is it?”
“Oh, I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry that you’re being bullied, ‘MERlin’.”
