He was discovered by theatrical director Rufus Norris during his final year of undergraduate study and decided to leave his course of study halfway through to make his professional London West End stage debut as Vernon God Little’s title character.

In the beloved Doctor Who episode “Midnight,” he played the troubled adolescent Jethro Cane against David Tennant in 2008.
In the BBC TV series Merlin from 2008 to 2012, Colin played the title role, which made him the most well-known.
The story of Merlin follows the exploits of a young warlock who is the ward of Gaius and the servant of King Arthur. Merlin must discreetly hone his magical abilities in front of both Uther and Arthur, who abhor the practice.

It was difficult to cast Merlin, according to co-creator and executive producer Johnny Capps. In an interview with Capps from 2011, Capps stated, “We had to locate an actor who has a broad acting range, someone with the lightness of touch who will be able to cope with action and magic.”
“We had a gut feeling about Colin. He’s great for the position, we decided after watching his last auditions after seeing him repeatedly after our initial skepticism.”
He accidentally acquired the Prince Arthur screenplay before going on the audition. He just had five minutes to read the correct part before his audition.

The art of telling stories has lost something along the way. I am frequently disappointed when ‘business’ takes precedence over creativity. I want to be a part of the fantastic community of filmmakers that are preserving the art form.
