No, sadly I don't think Colins dating Katie, even though I ship them so hard together. Colin has been spotted with women. No.1 Has anyone seen the tweeted picture of Colin standing next to a women in a picture of Bradley's birthday in 2011 he's wearing a birthday hat and she has her face turned away People think she's Marie Devoutour the A.D but She's not. No.2 there's a crew member ( I won't say her name) has a picture of Colin and her from the wrap party oct 2011 on her twitter page as her main icon, one of the photobooth pictures she has red hair and bangs. I think he has been dating the first one I mentioned. She has blonde hair. If you go to youtube and watch Colin ColdCon video pt 2 at the end when Colin's going out the door a tall blonde women leaves with him. That's not to say she's his girlfriend but her height is the same, as the women in the picture and she has the same frame as her.
Of course he's dating Bradley, their shacked up in a little love nest as we speak, and Bradley's buying more American t-shirts for him, since they like to dress identical. They just can't hide their love, can they? Be more obvious you two.
Colin and Bradley really should try and be less obvious. Colin wearing a Heat hat that Bradley probably got him because he missed him, or Colin visiting Bradley's dads house, or Bradley flying back from the U.S for opening night of Colin's play or Bradley's beaming with pride comment or them leaving out the back door of the Tempest together. Be more obvious I dare you. Why don't they just admit their in a relationship?
Apparently Colin and Katie McGrath dated a couple years ago, although it was said to have ended. I can't remember where I heard this though.
You probably read it on youtube where the person said they got it from WDW (who's dated who) We all know WDW is total made up BS. I don't believe they ever dated, Colin is probably gay. That's his business though.
Colin est une personne qui prend tres au serieux son travaille toute son esprit est sur son travaille il n'a pas la tete a ça!tout ce qu'il sais c'est de travaille sans cesse pour y parvenir!mais il est plus que ça il aime sa famille ses amis!donc je ne pense pas qu'il aune petrite amie!c'est il est un gay çà c'est vrais je l'affirme mais vous savez personne n'est parfait!
Bradley has a girlfriend Georgia Kimg I know fans don't want to believe she is his girlfriend but he's spent the last few years flying to the USA to see her they need to except it. Also both Colin and Bradley feel very uncomfortable with the whole Brolin things it really dosent exsist and is in fan imagination
Fans are going to think what they want regardless of the truth. Whether that be Colin & Bradley in a sexual relationship, Bradley and Angel, Colin and Katie. Let them have their fantasies, that's all it is. If it bothered B/C that much they would've said something, they haven't.
There is no problem with people having their fantasy's, there is however an enormous problem when people reported their fantasy as fact, when people will be aggressive towards the friends and partners of their fantasy. Both Angel and Georgia King have been vilified in fandom for "being in the way" of the preferred ship in a very ugly and demeaning way. There is also a problem when some people cannot distinguish between fantasy and reality. Both Colin and Bradley HAVE addressed it, they have said they're mates, that any homoerotic tensions on screen are perceived, they haven't played it that way at all (yes, that's all very debatable, and yes, some of it is the intentions of the show-runners for sure) but still this is their reactions. They have worked together, gone to functions together (Bradley went to Colin's play), but that's been about it. If they speak up about it, Fans will surely rubbish them for doing so.
I agree. But don't you think it would've helped if they said more? It's getting to the point where stuff I've read is really crossing the line. Some fans actually believe their married and living together. One fan going so far the other day to say "Bradley can have the V and D anytime he wants" referring to those new Tempest pictures where Colin's skin was showing. I know they're mates but to be honest Bradley tweeting "I'm beaming with pride" and looking like he was going to cry, as well lurking around the Thames during Colin's opening night of The Tempest hasn't helped matters. Don't even get me started on Georgia King whose been in his life the last three years, but fans explain it away. One day the Merlin fans are gonna have to move on and stop lamenting on stuff from the show that was years ago. Bradley and Colin aren't besties, they're like anyone else from the show and they occasionally see each other. I think the reason Bradley hasn't really addressed it (sorry they haven't. If you remember their last interview when asked about M/A, Colin sat there quiet and Bradley went on talking about how everyone would want a relationship like Merlin and Arthur's. They both looked uncomfortable) is because it would inevitably lead into questions about Colin's sexuality, whom I believe is a (deeply closeted gay man, who currently has a gf) I think Bradley was protecting him by not addressing M/A because it would lead into questions.
Perception is an interesting and individual thing isn't it? I've never ever thought once that Bradley was covering for Colin because he's gay. I just think they both got sick of their relationship being misconstrued by fans, and pushed as something different by the shows producers (and yes they are not besties anymore have not been for some time really, but just because Colin is not part of Arthur and his "knights gang or anything of the sort does not mean, to me that he is a closeted gay man. Bradley has addressed it - not in the last interviews, but in a tweet - its somewhere on the web, and Colin has said repeatedly that its there if you are looking for it, even in Barney!) It would be great if they addressed it head-on. However, look at the likes of Hugh Jackman and his wife, he's been putting up with rumours and accusations for 17 YEARS! But I don't think they will, any agent or publicist worth their salt would be advising them not to engage. (its sort of like don't feed the trolls, you just don't go there) Even if they came out and denied it, then fans are just going to call them liars and go back to believing what they would like. But it does cross a line, I would love it if either of them could go out in public with a girlfriend or just female friend without fandom scrambling over themselves calling the girl everything from beard to hag (and analysing body language to support their case). Brolin well and truly does not exist
Ugh, he has a girlfriend, and yet you assume he is deeply closeted, anon? How do you know this? Did he tell you?
He looks irritated with all the questions regarding Merlin/Arthur, not upset, not uncomfortable, but actively irritated, because that question dominated perceptions of the whole show, driven by a group of vocal fans who fell for all the awful queer-baiting of the show runners. That perception regarding the show pretty much invalidated whatever nuance he was bringing to the performance, and also really ruined his character development. So yes, I would be really irritated too. You probably did not hear this, but Colin Morgan was constantly questioning the show-runners on the motives and through-line of his character towards the end, and with very good reason, I feel.
Above anon commenter again, I apologize for the tone of that earlier comment, but I think I was getting a little frustrated with how our stereotypes regarding the gender binary are so entreched that we/fans can only see individuals through that particular prism. I think it's unfair that it leads to assumptions about people's personal lives and sexualities. I think most fans are only too willing to make these assumptions, so that he can fit into their preferred fantasies. I mean the very fans who go on about "Brolin," the ones you were critiquing.
Colin is deeply concerned with how people perceive him. Maybe when he's really famous he won't feel the need to hide, but currently I think he thinks it will affect his career. There's such a thing as gaydar, and I can't overlook some of the things I've seen from him. This is just an opinion and I could be wrong and he's as straight as an arrow. It's doubtful though.
In the context of the show, the "J's" as everyone likes to call them gaybaited continuously for ratings, and they ignored every other character on the show, as well the overall plot, character developments. I don't know why the show called Merlin, it was never about him. You could see that B/C were sick of it. They might've said something BTS but not in the open cause it wouldn't look good talking bad about your boss. With that being the said, the show is over with and they both have a chance to set the record straight with fans regarding M/A "brolin" what really went on BTS but both have opted to stay silent. fair enough.
If you are right that he is deeply concerned about how people perceive him and his sexuality, then he's not doing a very good job of it.
I think we can agree to disagree on the first. I am just uncomfortable assuming that women who are with male celebrities are beards. It's disrespectful to the people involved. For all you/we know, he could be bi.
On the second, I honestly don't think they need to set the record straight on what a small group of fans fantasize about. They have moved on from Merlin and its associations.
If they don't it's going to continue and get worse. They've had limited contact since the show's finished but that hasn't stopped some fans from twisting every encounter they have to suit their fantasies. We'll agree to disagree on them addressing it, in my opinion they haven't said enough. Perhaps if they had a laugh about it like Jared, Jensen and Mischa do from Supernatural it wouldn't be a problem and fans would brush it off, but the fact they've both acted uncomfortable, weird and mostly silent proves they have other reasons for not addressing it more vocally. Just an opinion.
I also think Colin might be bi. At least that would explain a few things. To get back on topic, I also said he has a gf based on him being seen with the same blonde several times over the last few years most recently at Mojo, they could be friends though.
I honestly don't know what things it would explain about Colin Morgan, but my default for everyone is bi. Nothing about CM specifically screams queer to me, but then I suspect we have very different perceptions about gender and sexual orientation.
I too have read about the girlfriend, and I am inclined to believe that that might be the case. But then again, I am only speculating. CM reminds me a lot of Cillian Murphy, who is also notoriously private, even more so when he was younger.
How do you know that "Colin is deeply concerned about the way he is perceived" and is "hiding something" . You can't know those things unless he tells you so (and if you are a friend, why are you commenting on a public and anon. site) All I see is that he is trying to keep is private life just that - Private. I really don't think he cares, nor is going to address the small group of fans who continue to make up stories and insist that he and Bradley are having a secret affair. He's getting on with his life and career and leaving Merlin far behind him.
I too have heard that Colin (and the rest of the cast) were deeply dissatisfied with the way the series panned out, and the emphasis of the Arthur/Merlin relationship. (the phrase I heard was near-mutiny at the final script read through) He was silent at that group of interviews they had to conduct as he really didn't want to be there, and I agree with the other anon - he was deeply irritated at the line of questioning (not because he was hiding his sexuality, because he was not able to really say how he felt) The actors never had a lot of clout in terms of character development or story-telling, and in all interviews etc that they did, they had to follow the line the producers wanted them to follow - there was a lot going on bts, which we will probably never find out.
"How do you know that "Colin is deeply concerned about the way he is perceived" and is "hiding something"
I don't. His body language speaks volumes. He's most definitely hiding something. Whether that be he's gay, married, has a bunch of bastard kids, Who knows. Let's not forget that it was Colin himself who boasted "My secrets are good" Yes he's entitled to his private life, but until he comes out and declares that he has a girlfriend or that he's hetero or pap's photograph him the gay rumours will persist. Fair or not.
Oh, he was joking with a child for crying out loud. Stop reading everything in regards to his sexuality, yes he may be hiding something, he may be hiding the fact that he hated the show and couldn't wait to get out. Not all roads led to sex, and not everybody who is hiding something are hiding that they are gay. Body language! I know gay people who have said they don't believe he's gay, so much for your gaydar and reading of body language - everybody has a different opinion, and body language is not a science set in stone. You can read anything you want into it if you wish, anybody will tell you that
I agree that the gay rumours will persist, but they will whether or not he shows his girlfriend, or denies he's gay in an interview, or opens up about his private life, because people like you will not believe it regardless.
I'm not going to argue further, because to do so is pointless. I
I don't think that talking about a person's private and intimate life in public is appropriate. The actors are total strangers to the fans and what they're doing in their private life is none of our business. We know nothing of them, except what they are willing to let people know. Even if there are rumours and even if somebody has found out something about who- or whatever, it doesn't belong in the public.
I think that people should respect the celebrities' wishes and refrain from discussing their sexuality, private life and what they might have had for breakfast.
"I agree that the gay rumours will persist, but they will whether or not he shows his girlfriend, or denies he's gay in an interview, or opens up about his private life, because people like you will not believe it regardless."
No. If Colin comes out and says he's not gay, that's good enough for me. So far he's chosen to say nothing at all. If he does have a girlfriend imagine how she feels with fans constantly saying your man is gay.
Fimber: I get you don't want people talking about Colin's private life, but honestly there's not much to talk about and were just speculating. I also don't understand you feeling the need to stop by every blue moon to say the same drivel. This is a thread for talking about Colin's gf or whom he may be dating, if you don't like it, don't come in here. People will discuss it regardless. I think everyone is being fairly respectful. It's all just opinions and speculations.
This discussion will only go on as long as we admins allow it to continue. It's my obligation to take care of the threads and discussions, so telling me to simply not reading it doesn't make sense. We have let you discuss this subject so far, but whether or not we allow this discussion to continue, everyone should have the courtesy to not speculate about other people's private life. While I understand the curiosity of the fans, it's actually rude to spread rumours and to discuss in public the sexuality of someone.
If we decide to stop this discussion at some point you're free to discuss it somewhere else. There are multiple forums and fan sites in the internet. Here, on this wikia, everyone has to follow the rules. We agreed some time ago that discussing much too private things about either users and/or celebrities, as well as insulting and offending others goes against the rules.
So far I have suggested to stop getting too personal. In case that somebody has news about who is dating who, as long as it is legit news and not a secret, everything is fine.
Until then I suggest that fans respect other people's private life.
