Rupert attended the Medway Comic and Screen Festival along with Alex Vlahos (Mordred in Merlin) on the Saturday.
It was a nice, friendly, small convention, so I had the chance to have a bit of a chat with Rupert, which was lovely. I don’t have any real news to pass on, though! We haven’t seen him for a little while, but he says he’s been doing lots of workshops.
Given that I’m moving back to Australia later this year, I took the opportunity to give away the last of my Merlin Locations tat. Most of it went to my fannish friends, but I gave Rupert a beanie and Alex a baseball hat. They were both kind enough to thank me for the hats via their autographs.
The organisers of the Merlin 10 Year Anniversary Convention were then kind enough to use the beanie to hold the tickets when they asked Rupert to draw a raffle winner. How cool is that! You can see the video here on Twitter. Thank you, all, and congratulations to Tess!
All in all, it was a really lovely day, with lots of Rupert and lots of Merlin Family fun. I’m gonna miss you guys!
