‘Merlin’ Knights Ride into London Comic Con

mcm_london_comic_con_21With only a couple of weeks to go London Comic Con is still adding to it’s already huge guest list, with two brave knights from BBC’s Merlin.

Raise your swords and unfurl your banners: Tom Hopper and Alexander Vlahos, stars of hit BBC fantasy series Merlin, are the latest special guests to be announced for this month’s MCM London Comic Con. The noble duo of knights – who play Sir Percival and Mordred, respectively – are set to attend Europe’s biggest comic con on the Sunday of the show.

Tom Hopper plays gentle giant Sir Percival, whose bravery prompts Arthur to make him a knight of Camelot despite his lack of noble birth. As well as appearing in Doctor Who, Tom starred in British horror-comedy Tormented and will play Billy Bones in upcoming pirate drama Black Sails.

Alexander Vlahos (Doctors, Privates) took over the role of Mordred from the younger Asa Butterfield so he could be shown as a teenager. Originally a druid, Mordred becomes a knight of Camelot…but one who is fated to one day betray and kill King Arthur.
