In a scene that has him with Merlin, my eyes keep drifting to his face. My loyalty to Merlin has been compromised. Nobody has ever managed to steal my attention away from Merlin when he's on-screen before, not even Arthur.
Bradley James has said that even if there would be a Merlin movie, most likely he won't be in it, for whatever reason. I think the crazy fans put a pause in his enthusiasm for being further involved in the show (he deleted his twitter account).
British actors are different than American ones, folks. Don't expect them to deal with the same shiz you throw at actors living in your backyards with the same aplomb and hunger for more attention. They're quite reserved about their private lives and usually treat acting as a job. One that they're passionate about, but it's still just a JOB. You know...as in: "Being an actor is my job, it's not who I am" sort of thing? So stop with the buggering of their private lives stuff. I know this advice would fall on deaf ears but I thought I should give it a try anyway. Meh.
Anyway, here's the official version from them on why Merlin should not be continued for the 6th season or for any movie: Merlin series 5 confirmed to be its last
I'm sad that Merlin is over, but am also quite excited to see what their (Bradley James & Colin Morgan) future projects are. However, if they do more theatre works, I'm afraid I'll be out of the loop as there is no way I can go to where they are to watch the plays. And I'm usually the type of fan who will be done with a show once the show is done.
Am still making my sad face at arse o'clock in the morning. I should just go to sleep and stop mourning. Life goes on after all for everyone, even for little old me.
