Morgan Wants “Damaged” Merlin
Colin Morgan has said he wants viewers to see a more damaged side to Merlin in Series 4.
He explained to BANG Showbiz: “We often see Merlin go through so many situations in that he has to put up a front and appear pretty jolly and suppress a lot of his true emotions. I’d like to see a lot more of the raw things come out from under the surface and get to see him in a more mature and damaged way.
“I think that is dangerous territory for what it is supposed to be a comedy show but our audience are growing up, as are the characters and I think it’s important that those elements are incorporated into it as long as we don’t lose touch with the characters and change too much. But people do change and I think anything that moves towards a maturity and an unearthing of true emotions I think would be great.”
Series 4 is airing this Autumn on BBC1.
