Hockity pockity! I had the fortune to grab a few minutes with Elliot Knight, Once Upon a Time's enigmatic Merlin, and was able to ask him about his experience playing the famed sorcerer, as well as his craft and how he does that voodoo that he do so well.

I’m interested to know what it’s like for you to be portraying a character as legendary as Merlin on a show known for its twists and turns like Once Upon a Time?
I feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to play such an iconic character of popular myth and legend. It’s great to get to create a brand new interpretation of Merlin and to see how he is received by the fans and also how the story unfolds as he is introduced to the rollercoaster that is the world of Once.
