bbcdiscovery began, and continues, primarily as an homage to Colin Morgan‘s work. It’s goal is to build a career biography of this extraordinary, talented man, never intruding on his private life. This site is intended to follow Colin’s career and give anyone interested a look at his work and accomplishments. I hope it is easy to navigate and that you will find much information to inform you of his work, his ethic, and the reasons he has enchanted so many.
The Topics Sidebar is a good way to search the site. The Time Travel series is particularly oriented toward Colin’s early beginnings, at least the ones we were privileged to see or learn about through reviews and interviews.
There will be diversions from time to time, but always returning to Colin’s next project.
His activities in stage, film and tv, past and present, are the main focus here. He was a new discovery for me when Merlin came to our screens. I have been enchanted by the exceptional quality of his talent since the first episode of that wonderful series. His reactions to his introduction to Gaius stay with me still, the embarrassed stammer, the lowered eyes, the innocent confusion.
My feelings and thoughts about the entire Merlin tv series will be found in Remembering Merlin.
The pages listed under that title will talk about each season and its episodes. This is a work in progress … at present unfinished. I hope you will visit both the Merlin Home Page and the individual Season pages as time goes on.
He has also introduced me to an appreciation of the books and films that he admires, which I have encountered through reading his interviews. New worlds for me.
Having lived in the Western US all of my life, I was late coming to British and Irish films. Now I am a huge fan of the system which brings such thoughtful and interesting stories to the screen.
Far outside the range of fangirl, I left ages 20, 30, 40, and 50 long ago, and never ever before having had a fascination with any actor … Here I am completely enchanted with a very young Northern Irish lad. Explain it? Though I have tried over the past 7-8 years, there seems to be no words that capture it. Leave it to the leprechauns still hiding in the Northern Irish woods. They have invaded my life, and planted an interest in all things Colin Morgan.
So, much of my writing here will be following his adventures as he stretches the art he loves into every avenue of human understanding. I can only wish him well and watch him grow ever more skillful.
