Merlin: Series 5 Casting Revealed
Three guest stars for Series 5 of Merlin have been officially confirmed, and two of them are returning characters.
“We can confirm that… Liam Cunningham is going to appear in series five, along with returning guest stars Lindsay Duncan (Queen Annis) and Janet Montgomery (Princess Mithian),” the BBC revealed to Digital Spy.
Liam Cunningham can currently be seen in another medieval fantasy show, Game of Thrones. He will appear in the first two episodes.
Queen Annis appeared in the fifth episode of Series 4, His Father’s Son. Her character last made peace with Arthur, much to Morgana’s annoyance.
Princess Mithian, meanwhile, was in 11th episode of Series 4, The Hunter’s Heart. The last time we saw the character, Arthur had broken off his engagement to her, realising he still loved Guinevere.
It’ll will be interesting to see what part they both play in the story this time.
