The Merlin stars are simultaneously saying goodbye to the series and introducing American audiences to season 5. See a video interview with Angel Coulby and read what she can tease about the episodes ahead.
BBC’s Merlin publicity team has released the following video clip with Coulby, where she tells a secret about Bradley James:
“Bradley is really good at art,” Coulby says, and we get to see one of his sketches.
In an interview with Diva Universal, Coulby previews the fifth season for American audiences (who’ll be starting in January!). On Guinevere and Arthur’s relationship, she says, “Arthur has changed and become much more responsible. He now takes much more notice of his heart – he’s not ashamed of his emotions anymore.” After a few years of marriage, “Guinevere has deep respect for him. They work together very well and make a really good team. He confides in her and respects her opinion.”
Gwen is still close with Merlin too, of course. Coulby explains, “They’re still very good friends. He knows that she is Queen and he must respect that, but they’re still good mates.” She also admits that Gwen, “would never want to get in the way of Merlin’s relationship with Arthur. She appreciates that they have a ‘bromance’ and she enjoys their bantering. She doesn’t want to put a stop to that.”
This season, Guinevere “has to make decisions which are quite harsh, but they are all done in the name of defending the ones she loves.”
Merlin‘s fifth and final season ends in the UK on December 24, and begins in America on January 4, where it’ll air on the SyFy channel.
