There’s been a casting shake-up on BBC’s Merlin: Asa Butterfield will not be reprising his role as Mordred next year.
Vlahos has previously worked on the British series The Indian Doctor, Doctors and Pen Talar. It is not known why they’ve switched actors, although perhaps scheduling conflicts due to Butterfield’s commitment to Ender’s Game played a part.
What do you think about Merlin going with an older actor for Mordred? Will his rapid aging be addressed? Are they perhaps setting up a romance with Morgana? Share your theories in the comments!
