Sir Leon art by RedScharlach

At last! A line of Sir Leon merchandise!!!

The whimsically talented artist RedScharlach has now included Sir Leon among her lovely Merlin crew. All the related goodies can be found on RedBubble.

Follow the link, and you’ll see the greeting card option. Scroll down, click Available Products if it’s not already selected, and you’ll see all the goodies available featuring Sir Leon.

This includes:

  • t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies in a range of styles and colours
  • cases for iPhone, iPad and Samsung Galaxy
  • cushion covers and acrylic blocks
  • mugs and travel mugs
  • tote bags and drawstring bags
  • greeting cards, postcards and stickers
  • spiral notebooks and hardcover journals

The sticker doesn’t appear on the page linked above, but you can find it here.

It’s worth noting that Sir Leon is also included in the Team Merlin group, along with darling Gaius and the other regular characters. And what serendipity that Sir Leon (on his own) is featured against a purple background – my favourite colour! … My credit card just took a right hammering!

Quick & Dirty with Rupert Young (2014)

In the lead-up to Rupert’s attendance at the Supanova conventions in Australia, he was interviewed by Angela Allan.

There is nothing better than being part of a loyal band of brothers which us knights became and my favorite moments were – aside from sword fighting – when we were in our cloaks and on horses galloping into the castle in France. There would usually be school parties watching filming or looking around and when they saw us ride in they would look at us in awe. You couldn’t help but feel pretty cool.

The full interview can be found at Soot Magazine.

‘Merlin’ spinoff about Sir Leon? Rupert Young is waiting (2013)

Another interview with Rupert prompted by the Merlin fifth season finale in the US – again by Curt Wagner for RedEye Chicago.

I’m waiting for my big moment, you know? I am waiting for the spinoff. I think it will be more ‘Games of Thrones,’ a little bit darker. So kind of a nine o’clock show. Maybe Starz can pick it up, make it a little bit more adult—more nudity.

‘Merlin’ finale: Rupert Young talks Camelot, knighthood and more (2013)

Rupert did a Merlin fifth season finale interview with Noelene Clark for the Los Angeles Times ‘Hero Complex’ site. It’s worth a read!

Leon was always a stickler for rules, who would probably be really annoyed if he didn’t win Knight of the Year award every year.

The Hypable site ran a pared down version of this interview here on 31 May, titled ‘The knight who wouldn’t die’.

Rupert Young on ‘Merlin’: ‘We saw the show out in style’ (2013)

Rupert was interviewed by Curt Wagner for the RedEye Chicago website as part of Merlin‘s fifth season finale promotion. This interview in particular is nice and in-depth! (I love how the first direct question is about his hair…)

You heard I played a donkey? That’s very good knowledge. Yeah, that’s when I realized I was destined to the stage, I think. My mother made me an amazing donkey ears. I was always taken to the theater with my mum to see things. Theater seemed really exciting to me. … I’ve been so lucky.
