BBC America stars Colin Morgan (Merlin) and Katie McGrath (Morgana) sat down with BBC Radio 1 host Nick Grimshaw to discuss the premiere of Merlin season five. The fifth season is currently being aired in the UK and will arrive in the U.S. in 2013. The conversation covered lots of fun bits including getting up early to film, what happens during the off-season and fans dressing up as their characters at Comic-Com.
Speaking of fans, the duo take face-to-face fan questions via Skype which gets down to the nitty gritty with questions like, “If you can have any item from another BBC show what would it be?” They all agreed this was a tough question. What do you think they came up with?
The fan question prompts host Grimshaw to bring up the hugely popular Doctor Who, which Morgan appeared on prior to his Merlin days. He jokes that the two series should battle each other in a “medieval/futuristic face-off”.
They had so much fun there’s two parts. Check it out below.
