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).

Sir Leon is my favorite knight. I like his composure in difficult moments, and his steadfast loyalty. I think that every person beside him feel protected and safe

Rupert is my favourite of the knights. Not only is he gorgeous he seems so grounded in real life and that soft voice makes me week at the knees. Did you see his interview about making a Merlin he was so up for it well they all were but Rupert spoke of the cruelness of the deaths and the timing. Go to Merlin Amanda Videos here in the Forum, and see for yourself. Oh my sweet Knight You will ride again.
