" First of all I’d just like to thank everyone who voted for me because that’s why I have this award right now and I just want to thank you all for voting for me and for your support. I’d like to thank Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy, Shine, BBC for a fantastic time on Merlin, it was brilliant. To all the cast, to our amazing crew, to my agent Ruth Young who is my rock…and to all the people who have given me opportunities throughout my life especially Rufus Morris and I just want to say it is an amazing honour to be in the same category as Benedict, Daniel and Matt and I feel very lucky for that so thank you all very much. ” (x)
