MCM Comic Con, Birmingham (2019)

BBC Merlin was well represented at the MCM Comic Con, held in Birmingham on 23-24 March 2019. Guests included Asa Butterfield (young Mordred), Tom Hopper (Percival), Alex Vlahos (older Mordred) and our own Rupert Young.

Unfortunately I couldn’t attend the con (having been exiled to the Antipodes) but my mate Shell did, along with her lovely family. They asked Rupert ♥ for an autograph for me, which was awesome! Thanks to my friends, I was definitely there in spirit.

Shell blogged about the day on her site The Copper River. This includes photos, and a link to the official live stream so that we can all enjoy the panel held on Saturday.

Thank you again, Shell!

Some things never change…

“So today….this happened. Some things never change. My love for these boys is one of those things.” Tom Hopper

Tom Hopper posted this image of the BBC Merlin peeps to Instagram on 18 January 2019. From left to right: our Rupert (Leon); Bradley James (Arthur); Eoin Macken (Gwaine); Tomiwa Edun (Elyan); and Tom (Percival).

Eoin Macken also posted it to Instagram, in black and white:

“It isn’t often that it happens and we all manage to get together but when we do it’s great, seeing all these beautiful men in the same room, and it’s the exact same as always, never changes. (I couldn’t put a vignette filter on this photo cos @tom.hopperhops & @rupertfyoung are still too tall) #merlin” Eoin Macken

Bradley also posted the image to Instagram, with the message “You can tell this was taken having just eaten as @tom.hopperhops is smiling. Always a joy getting the squad back together”.

It also appeared on Tomiwa’s Instagram account, with the message, “Gettin’ the band back together. Feel the #magic!”
