Time Travel … A Glimpse of the Future

It is 2005.  Colin Morgan is a 19 year old student at the RSAMD.  Viewing this we begin to understand that it holds promise of a bright future … a path, gently rippling forward, stretching out before this young thespian, one more step in achieving his dream.

    Lots of different emotions here. Really does give a glimpse into the future. While I love Colin’s younger roles, I know he will just get better and better as his career moves forward. I can relate to the “making up sins.” Pretty sure I may have been guilty a time or two. Just small ones, but you hated for Father to think you were a total wimp.


  2. Your sense of humor is delightful! You weren’t a wimp, then?

    We are continuing, in this place, to watch Colin’s growth. His early work … 2005 until 2007. We would go back further if we could. It is a journey worth taking. A large portion of our admiration for him is his perseverance and dedication to working on his talent. He never assumes being good is good enough. He never stops growing, studying, becoming better and better. We can never discount the early roles, the foundation he has created … It is rock, not sand.

    Oh, I was a wimp! Glad we are looking into Colin’s earlier work. Have been trying to find out more about the plays he’s done. I have managed to get ahold of published scripts for a couple. These are not “pretty” roles. And any reviews I have read are all glowing–“brilliant Colin Morgan.”


  4. Our next step here is to look at his stage work. A commenter, early on in Colin’s career, said he expected Colin to lean to the dark side in his roles. This created some anger among Merlin fans who could only see him as this delightful wizard. I, myself, wondered at the time. But once I became aware of his stage performances, I did understand this viewpoint.

    It is clear and been underlined by Alison Reid’s comments, as well as his choice of particular roles to pursue. We always really liked this observation by Ms. Reid:

    “Morgan certainly likes to live dangerously, and play the kind of people society often shuns or finds too uncomfortable to care about.”

    Cathal, Calum, Skinny Luke, the early plays (Vernon God Little, A Prayer for my Daughter, etc.), and I’m thinking perhaps Leo, as well as The Rising (not so much dark, as tragic in this case).

      I hope he starts doing some theater again! more Shakespeare or contemporaries plays.


      • There is no doubt that he will do more theater! He will keep himself moving among the three disciplines: stage, film, tv. His feet are not touching the ground.
        However, we will not often be able to see these wonderful performances as it is unusual for them to be filmed. Of his previous stage performances, only one has been captured for dvd release: The Tempest at The Globe.

    Oh, good! It would be hard not to love Merlin, but this is a brilliant actor who is going to do some wonderful work. We have a lot to look forward to.
