Sir Leon (Rupert Young)
Sir Leon has been with us since the episode The Once and Future Queen in season 2. Originally intended to be an extra in that episode, Leon proved so popular the producers brought him back and he has never left us since, even surviving in the last episode, The Diamond of the Day.
Leon also escaped death as he was almost killed by Cenred, but the Druids saved his life, using the Cup of Life.
In Arthurian mythology, there is indeed a Sir Leon among the knights of the Round Table.
In Merlin, Sir Leon is portrayed by the London-born actor Rupert Young. In 2004 he played “a British soldier” in Island at War, and has appeared in several series (Foyle’s War, Primeval, Doc Martin, Shameless and Hotel Babylon, to name but a few).
For the love of Camelot!
