Anthony Head goes royal on Merlin

Anthony Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) plays the ruthless King Uther in the hit BBC show Merlin. In real life, it's quite a different story!

I was lucky enough to moderate the Merlin panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and I got an exclusive chat with Head backstage. Just try and get through this video interview without cracking up!

Anthony Head is Merlin

He played Giles, the librarian-watcher in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and is now the dark king on BBC's Merlin.

In our interview, Anthony Head begins as "Anthea, Spirit of the Throne." He had me rolling on the floor laughing with his voices.

We also got some great info on his character, Uther's relationship with Morgana and the unfortunate way he broke co-star Bradley James' concentration during a scene.

Check out our video interview below.
