In a short new video, Merlin star Angel Coulby talks about the first time her character Gwen had to kiss Bradley James’ Arthur.

It’s time for another installment of the Merlin Advent Calendar! Previously BBC has brought us clips of Bradley James and Colin Morgan joking about James’ attitude on set and whether the show should be called Arthur, as well as Katie McGrath defending Morgana and wondering if she just wants a cuddle, and Angel Coulby talking about James’ drawings.

Now, another clip answers the question: what went through Coulby’s mind when she first had to kiss Bradley James on screen?

“You just do it,” Coulby shrugs, “it’s like another part of the job. And Bradley and I, we’re mates, so we just kind of got on with it and did it, really.” Well… what a job eh? She does add that, “I think Bradley really enjoyed it though. So that’s good.”

In other news, Merlin is almost over, what!? We here on Hypable have gone slightly overboard with the worrying and theorising about how it’s all gonna end, we’re not gonna lie, and the evidence can be heard on the latest installment of our Merlin podcast Talks of Camelot. There’s also A Month of Merlin, a series of articles celebrating all things about the show, so be sure to check that out if you haven’t yet!
