Five (5) years After!! Meet the cast, Actors and Actresses in the movie Merlin, See how they Look Now

Check out the current pictures of the actors who acted Merlin
The Cast In The BBC Series MERLIN
Can you believe it's been seven years since Colin Morgan's boy wizard first strode onto our screens?
The series premiere of Merlin on September 20, 2008 set us off on a magical five-year journey - one with mythical monsters, wicked warlocks and excessive amounts of bromantic banter.
Millions tuned in each Saturday night for the show's blend of fun, fantasy and friendship - because Merlin and Arthur (Bradley James) were definitely just friends, OK? - but what's happened to Camelot's finest since that epic final episode?
Colin Morgan
Merlin - Where are they now: Colin Morgan, See their current look and appearance now..
The aged Emrys might still be waiting for King Arthur to revive, but Merlin lead Colin Morgan hasn't lain dormant these past few years. He appeared opposite fellow Irish legend Gabriel Byrne in BBC One's moody detective drama Quirke in 2014, was seduced by Gillian Anderson as mercurial copper Tom Anderson in The Fall and played cyborg Leo in Channel 4's smash hit Humans.
You can now catch Morgan in cinemas opposite Tom Hardy in Krays biopic Legend and next up he'll sport some fetching facial hair in BBC One's spooky period thriller The Living and the Dead.
Bradley James
Merlin - Where are they now: Bradley James
James was perfectly cast as the good-hearted but arrogant Prince - later King - of Camelot and he's put that screen charisma (and those razor-sharp cheekbones) to good use since Merlin ended.
After a small but standout role on Homeland - James was JG Edgars, the soldier who memorably chewed out Carrie (Claire Danes) in the season four premiere - he landed the recurring role of undead musician Lowell Tracey on cult hit iZombie.
He'll stay in the fantasy realm in early 2016, taking on the title role in Damien - the new TV series that picks up with the son of Satan some years after the events of The Omen.
Richard Wilson
Merlin - Where are they now: Richard Wilson
Wilson shattered memories of grumpy Victor Meldrew with his winning turn as Merlin's kindly mentor Gaius. He's since played an elderly astronaut in an episode of Sky Arts anthology series Playhouse Presents and this year appeared in BBC One's Lenny Henry biopic Danny and the Human Zoo.
In January, Wilson told DS that he doesn't miss Merlin - but only because he struggled with the show's "hectic" schedule. He now works chiefly in theatre - and will reprise Victor Meldrew on stage for a one-off performance next month.

Angel Coulby
Merlin - Where are they now: Angel Coulby

Guinevere - nicknamed 'Gwen' - captured Arthur's heart (sorry, Merthur fans!), rising from lowly servant girl to Queen of Camelot across five series.
The year after Merlin wrapped, Coulby appeared in a pair of quality drama series - BBC Two's stylish jazz drama Dancing on the Edge and Sky Atlantic's gripping original thriller The Tunnel - and these days voices kick-ass heroine Kayo on CITV's Thunderbirds Are Go, a new take on the classic puppet show.

Katie McGrath
Merlin - Where are they now: Katie McGrath
Perhaps the most startling arc on Merlin belonged to Morgana - from meek Royal to dark sorceress and would-be conqueror of Camelot. Katie McGrath vamped it up (sorry) in NBC's Dracula from 2013-14, played Zara in blockbuster Jurassic World this summer and is all set to lead new horror TV series Slasher.
Best of all though, McGrath will be diving back into the Arthurian legends - she's been cast as Elsa in Guy Ritchie's big-screen Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur - out July 2016.

Anthony Head
Merlin - Where are they now: Anthony Head
After seven years on Buffy, Head was already a cult hero when he took on the role of tyrannical monarch Uther, who ruled Camelot with an iron fist until he met his early end in the fourth season.
Post-Merlin, Head reunited with his former co-star Angel Coulby in Dancing on the Edge. He's since made Syfy his second home, playing the dangerous Paracelsus on the channel's Warehouse 13 (2013-14) and ruthless senator David Whele on Dominion(2014-present).
A spinoff from Buffy featuring his character Giles could still be in the offing too. No, really.

John Hurt
John Hurt
Hurt lent his unmistakable, husky tones to the Great Dragon - Merlin's other guide and confidant. Already a BAFTA winner and Oscar nominee when he 'appeared' on Merlin, the veteran actor came full circle in 2013 when he played the War Doctor on Doctor Who - the success of which had inspired Merlin in the first place.
This autumn, he'll co-lead Sky Atlantic's jewel heist thriller The Last Panthers with Samantha Morton and, in 2016, will appear in the latest big-screen version of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård.
Nathaniel Parker
Merlin - Where are they now: Nathaniel Parker
Parker's Agravaine aggravated Merlin as a regular villain in series four - a spy for Morgana, he finally met a sticky end at our hero's hand.
A year after leaving Merlin, Parker appeared in BBC One's short-lived rom-com Me and Mrs Jones and the following year, he appeared on stage in Peter Morgan's The Audience, playing Gordon Brown to Helen Mirren's Queen Elizabeth II.
He returned to BBC One primetime earlier this year, popping up in an adaptation of best-selling book The Outcast by Sadie Jones.

Emilia Fox
Merlin - Where are they now: Emilia Fox

As the witch Morgause, Emilia Fox was the queen of casting sinister looks and hissing "Sister!" at her sibling Morgana. After the character was bumped off, Fox played a terrifying temptress in BBC Two's superb comedy thriller The Wrong Mans and appeared in this year's TV adaptation of JK Rowling's The Casual Vacancy.
Perhaps her most notable role to date though has been as Dr Nikki Alexander on the perpetually popular Silent Witness, a part she's played for an incredible 12 years - both pre- and post-Merlin.

Alexander Vlahos
Merlin - Where are they now: Alexander Vlahos
The gifted Mordred was a conflicted young fellow, but it was he who ultimately did it for Arthur when he embraced his dark side in the Merlin finale.
Since striking that killer blow, Alexander Vlahos played military man Tom Keenan in BBC One's daytime drama series Privates and recently landed a plum role in big-budget costume drama Versailles, coming soon to BBC Two. He also stars as Dorian Gray in a series of audio plays from Big Finish.
Bonus: Asa Butterfield, who played the younger Mordred in three episodes of Merlin, has gone on to become a shining star in Hollywood. He collaborated with Martin Scorsese on 2011's Hugo, appeared opposite Harrison Ford in 2013's Ender's Gameand was hotly tipped to land the role of Peter Parker / Spider-Man in Marvel's latest reboot, though he ultimately lost out to Tom Holland.

The Knights of the Round Table
Merlin - Where are they now: Rupert Young, Eoin Macken, Tom Hopper, Adetomiwa Edun & Santiago Cabrera
What's become of Arthur's most trusted allies (besides Merlin) - noble Sir Leon, charming Sir Gwaine, strongman Sir Percival, intrepid Sir Elyan and dashing Sir Lancelot?
Rupert Young (Leon) played Sir William Herbert in BBC One's historical epic The White Queen in 2013 and will appear later this year in film chiller Writers Retreat, while Eoin Macken (Gwaine) can be seen rocking a Yank accent in NBC's medical drama The Night Shift as Dr TC Callahan.
Tom Hopper - Percival - now plays Billy Bones in popular pirate series Black Sails, Adetomiwa Edun - Elyan - recurred as wannabe sheriff Marcus Young on the third season of US horror hit Bates Motel and Santiago Cabrera continues to be impossibly handsome and suave in another BBC One series, playing Aramis in The Musketeers.
