Young leads knights on Aus­tralian quest

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

Young (pic­tured) is one of a trio of King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Ta­ble who are Queens­land bound for the Su­panova Pop Cul­ture Expo. Young, the twin brother of the first UK Idol win­ner Will Young, plays Sir Leon in the Mer­lin se­ries which airs in Aus­tralia on Chan­nel 10. His companions are Eoin Macken, who plays Sir Gwaine, and Tom Hop­per, who plays Sir Per­ci­val. Young says the trio are still to nut out ex­actly what they will get up to dur­ing the visit, though ‘‘I sus­pect it would be rude of us to be in Aus­tralia and not to cud­dle a koala, so we’ll be there for that’’. ‘‘You know, usu­ally when the three of us are to­gether it’s be­cause we’re film­ing. That means we’re in some wood in Wales and it’s pour­ing rain. That we’ll all be to­gether some­place sunny, where peo­ple might ac­tu­ally smile on oc­ca­sion . . . well I still can’t quite be­lieve it’s go­ing to hap­pen.’’ Young says the cur­rent sea­son is big­ger and bolder than any that have gone be­fore. ‘‘There’s a huge war that just goes on and on. In the past, there have been bat­tles but some­thing hap­pened at the end of each episode to re­solve them.’’

Sun­days, 6.30pm, Ten, Ten SC; Su­panova Bris­bane plays RNA Show­grounds from Novem­ber 9-11.
