I always thought the show should end with a long conversation between Merlin and Arthur. A face to face where they’d talk about everything on their hearts and all secrets would finally be revealed. The last episode is like that. Colin and I were able to play all the nuances of the relationship between these two men that are the best friends in the world despite their differences. These scenes have been very emotional for me and it was a way for me to say goodbye to Colin.
I love this guy, even though I made fun of him and even hit him on set all the time!
I think I was kind of a non-entity in school, I was very quiet and shy and most people probably just passed me. By the time I left school I was definite that I wanted to make myself something different and I think that’s why I became an actress: so I wouldn’t get passed by again.
Working crew made me realise that the actors are a very small part of a very big machine, with each part being vital to make the show work. It so important to remember that it’s not about you, it’s about the show, and working crew hammered that point home to me. ›› Katie McGrath.
