Rifling through a thesaurus is no help. Perhaps enchanting? Yes, and if not then what other word possibly comes closer to describing Katie McGrath’s presence? Her jet-black hair, flawless complexion and those green eyes, all incredibly intense and capable of making even Snow White a jealous bitch. Yes, enchanting, that’s the word. And aptly so, given it’s majestic connotations and the royal background of Morgana, the role for which Katie is arguably best known. But that’s all over now, Merlin, that is. Now, Katie is on to pastures new and No Cigar has seized the opportunity to find out what’s next…
“I have finally started to feel like I know what I’m doing and possibly that what I’m doing isn’t shit,” gushes Katie as she comments on her career progression thus far. “It wasn’t until I got Merlin that I went: ‘shit, this is now my life and now I know how lucky I was, how far I’ve come and that I won the fucking lottery.” If you aren’t familiar with her story, Katie became an actress quite by accident after working as crew on the set of The Tudors. Originally intending to become a fashion journalist (“I wasn’t good at the 9-to-5 structure!”) it wasn’t until Katie was encouraged to try working on the other side of the camera that acting became a realistic possibility. “I think the way I got into acting was the right way for me, I had no concept of what it was or how difficult it was going to be.” So, no young-dreams of acting and becoming a star? Nope. In fact Katie was a rather unlikely acting candidate: “When I started Merlin I very much felt like: ‘shit I don’t know what I’m doing.’ Everybody else had been to drama school and I was sitting there going: ‘I don’t know what the f**k I am.’”
