Rupert and Tom sizing Eoin up… what are you planning, boys? ;)
Have you not seen the slash fiction online?
Rupert: Oh I’ve heard of that yeah.
Tom: The what? The slash fiction? What’s that?
It’s when fans take two characters from a show and write fiction about them that’s a bit more sexual…
Rupert: I’ve seen some of those. I’ve learnt some great moves from some [laughs]. It’s weird there was one about me and my wife on our wedding night and the stuff I did. I was like: ‘that’s pretty good’.
Tom: You must have to search for that though, right? You Google Rupert Young and like, I don’t know, smut?
Rupert: I think so. I have to say I don’t know what it was. Someone was forwarding it to me, genuinely.
Eoin: You’ve probably written some of it, haven’t you?
Rupert: No, no, I don’t know how to type. There was a video as well, there were a lot of fanmade videos. When I was in it a couple of years ago, I remember someone putting a video together of Sir Leon and Morgana because we didn’t have a scene saying ‘oh, this will be great for them to be together’.
Tom: Isn’t there a Leon-Gwaine one?
Rupert: Yeah, Leon-Gwaine, Gwen and…
Eoin: You’re five minutes behind in the uptake here Harper, get with the programme.

Q: Percival, Leon or Gwaine?
Rupert Young: Depends what kind of fight it was, whether it was a sword fight—
Tom Hopper: Yeah.
Rupert Young: —an arm wrestle—
Tom Hopper: An arm wrestle! [laughs]
Interviewer to Eoin: And you rode your horse into a tree?
