Dale McCready’s Merlin Archive (2020)

The lovely Dale McCready, Director of Photography for a massive 42 of the 65 episodes of Merlin,  has been sharing her awesome behind-the-scenes photographs from across all five seasons of the show. You can find Dale’s Merlin Archive here on her website. She has kindly made all the images available for our use, with a request for credit where possible.

While this is a real gift for us fans, unfortunately it’s due to a difficult situation. The COVID-19 quarantine means that Dale and most other people working in the entertainment industry are (at least temporarily) out of work. Hence Dale had the time to devote to this task! If you can afford to help Dale get through this period by sending support via Paypal.Me, that would be wonderful – and every little bit helps!

I’ve taken the liberty of copying across most of the photos of our Rupert for this site. However, it is of course worth visiting and browsing Dale’s Merlin Archive yourself. There are 13 pages of photos, and some videos on the last page. You’ll find many other beauties and items of interest, including some fascinating notes on filming generally and cinematography specifically.

Please note: The photos below and in the banner are all © Dale McCready 2012, and available under a public use licence.

Thank you again, Dale! ♥

London Comic Con Spring (2020)

Rupert was a guest at London Comic Con Spring on Sunday 1 March, along with Tom Hopper (Percival in Merlin) who was there on both days.

My awesome friend Karen shared these photos from Rupert and Tom’s panel. You can see more via her Flickr account.
