↳ London Expo ‘09
Q: Some of us here are going to see Bradley tomorrow in the football match (…) I wondered whether any of the fellow cast members were going to see you too?
Johnny Capps: I thought Colin you would be there with a bucket of water and a sponge? *laughter*
Johnny Capps: Aren’t you going to be there with a bucket of water and a sponge?
*Colin laughs and rocks back and forth*
Bradley: I was playing football once and it was just after we’d finished season one. And this guy, this defender, crunched me just…you know, tackled me quite ferociously. And it took me a while to get off the ground and as I did he went “where’s Merlin now”. And I thought, this is where it begins. This is where my life-
Colin: Then I just poked out from behind a corner “forbearnar!”
ah,u kBradley: He then was y’know obliterated into an ashy pool.
Colin: He died.
Bradley: Cheers, mate.
↳ 2x8 Commentary. One. Take.
Bradley: This scene, we did in the space of like, ten minutes at the end of the day.
Colin: Yeah, in one take! *laughs*
Bradley: Yeah, in one take - and both cameras kind of-

Colin: Well, it’s a good moment for the characters, isn’t it? Because it’s one of the first times that you connect on a level that we both have a missing parent, which we’ve never really clocked before, so this is our first time kind of going, huh!
Bradley: This series has kind of been - with Arthur and Merlin, they’ve kind of had a few more of those conversations that you have with, like, your best mate every now and then where, you know, it’s banter 95%…99% of the time, and every now and then there’s something actually worth talking about.
This guy is considered to be one of the champions of the powers that be.
The story we have been a part of will live long in the minds of men.
the world turns, nothing is ever new (except the adventures and the sound of that heartbeat).
