Following the shocking finale to Merlin Series 5, star Bradley James has revealed that if anyone takes on the role of King Arthur in the proposed movie or possible spin-off, then it won’t be him.
“It was something discussed, but I think it’s time for me to hang up the chain mail, to be honest with you, and pass the mantle on to the next person who shall take on the throne of Arthur Pendragon,”Â James told theÂ Los Angeles Times.
“The post-MerlinÂ era is an exciting time to look forward to,” said James. “Variety is the spice of life.
“That’s the fantastic thing about acting â€“ all the different challenges it can provide you with. To limit yourself just to one would be foolish, therefore I’m looking forward to different things that come my way.”
MerlinÂ Series 5: Volume 1 is out now on DVDÂ for ÂŁ13.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
