The 28-year-old, who won a National TV award last year for his portrayal of Merlin, will play DS John Anderson in the crime drama's second series

Fans of BBC fantasy series Merlin will remember Colin Morgan as the boy wizard who headed up the young Camelot mob, looking ever so slightly Hobbitish as he went about his business. Over a year since the series finale and, a National TV Award later, the Northern Irish actor has landed his next big TV gig: a lead role in the second series of BBC thriller The Fall, co-starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan.

Confirmed to join the series from episode three, Morgan will play DS Tom Anderson, an officer who is drafted in to help hunt down Phil Spector (Dornan), the serial killer who managed to bypass the police investigation headed up by DS Stella Gibson (Anderson) at the end of series one. »
