I seriously doubt Bradley is relocating to LA though anything is possible and it is his life...his choice.  IF I'm right this is a limited series and  even if it were not the only reason he would need to move was if he wanted to.  

HEG it's something you will likely watch eagerly.  Something you are probably anticipating already.  I of course could be wrong or it could be a recurring or even a guest gig.  Word around this project is still very hush hush.  

KS try as I might I can't get into Highlander.   Keep me informed on any new gems you find.

He did not hope for work in UK. He wanted to work by HW even though it was not a movie. If he acquired the drama series, he has the possibility of moving to LA. If he is happy, he does not think that he returns to UK.

If he's filming for just a few months, the network will likely pay for some kind of temporary housing...or he can couch surf as it seems he's done before. He doesn't have to MOVE unless he's signed a multi-year contract under the assumption that it's a series that could be picked up...

I hear you BBS.  And I've been here long enough, to know that he will NOT give anything away of the personal matter.  Whatever has got you excited gives me hope, that he may indeed have landed something. Just understand I go in w/one eye open. 

One more thing all these acronyms are getting a tad confusing....who/what is CCP...help a girl out...LOL!

Oh and just looking at the timing and CCP current screaming for attention itseems to be a bet that he's filming for a particular show. I won't mention it because I'm not positive but I am hopeful for him.

Well it hasn't been 4 years just 1+ and this year has been nothing like last but yes...the games have begun and I think he's done everything he can to both reveal and conceal. Everything he does he does on two tracks and you can read what you want into his actions. The only thing Bradley is committed to is remaining uncommitted. I don't think he has any intention of allowing his personal life into public preview. So yep. SSDD

Bradley frolicks on beach- check Bradley does the bare minimum is the 'arrangement' by attending an event with robot like emotions on his face -check  Bradley goes back to the uk - check  Bradley takes part in a charity footie/cricket match - check  Bradley does a pub quiz - check  Bradley plays Mario cart with his mates- check  Bradley attends a wedding - check

time to go back to L.A... Lather, Rince, Repeat. for the past 4 YEARS! 

 

Not going to lie, had a "chuckle" at the above. If we learned anything, it's that he's become predictable.

Ya'll this may be really really cool for Bradley.  I think he has a gig.  His time here last Apr-May and his return now points at it.  It would explain why he's been so happy all summer.  If it's what i think it is, it will shoot in LA.  It's a network gig but a limited series.  So he won't be tied down the entire year even if successful.  I think he's a lead character or at least he would fit well for the male lead if there is one.   HEG IF I'm right it would make you happy for him.  Still a bit of secrecy around the project so I will cross my fingers for him.  

If the above proves true, then yes I will be happy for him.  It seems we've been here before....so....until we get an official word....I take it w/a grain of salt.

That would be great for Bradley and the timing would be right.  If he's doing an actual screening, esp. IF for a cable series or summer replacement.  It would start shooting early next year.  BUT lots of cable shows and even summer replacements are auditioning now...fall is a kind of mini pilot season.  Likely the reason for his Nov trips. 

Thankgiving to New Year the city pretty much gears down for the run up of pilot season.    So he could just be coming earlier this year with the intent to stay through Nov.  and loads of Brits come in the fall.  So it will be party central as well.  
Anonymous (Sophomore) wrote on 2014-09-16T07:34:21
Dunno...my guess is that he flew in to do something particular...like maybe audition for something...and that he'll be on a plane back to the UK before too long. No biggie if someone is paying the bill for him to audition; he can always come back in Nov as per usual.
Anonymous (Veteran) wrote on 2014-09-16T07:19:33
Looks like he's adjusting the dial a bit this year KS.  I'm thinking he arrived last week which means he's spending his B'Day in LA.  He's always here in Nov so maybe a couple months for the fall pilot season.  Who knows.  Personally I've been surprised he hasn't moved here already.

Why can't Bradley go to LA? Hopefully he's auditioning.

The fact that he's cautious abt everything, what he puts out in SM, leaving out certain important people out of his life, being choosy in roles for a relatively new comer, makes me think he missed out on a lot of opportunities. If you play it safe life will be predictable.

I haven't read any character spoilers per say, only read a few bits & pieces to do with Claire, Geillis and the timeline. I can only go by what I've seen in the show (since I haven't read the books) but I don't think he's as selfish as he's come across. Anyway, I'm drawn to his deep Scottish lilt.

Returning shows: mediocre to good.

OUAT  Reign & TVD
The Originals
Salem


Highly recommend (fall/2015 premieres)

TWD *
Peaky Blinders * (friend told me about this show last week, and I marathoned all 6 episodes, SO good)
Sam Mendes' Penny Dreadful (showtime) - Eva Green, Timothy Dalton. Victorian era Gothic/Horror. Eva Green is phenomenal in the seance scene.
Vikings *
Orange is the new black * - (Susan 'crazy eyes' is literally the best character on tv)
Game of thrones *
the fall
Outlander (current)

New shows I might give a look at:

Constantine (NBC)
How to get away with Murder (abc)

A few ppl have emailed me.  Nothing is going on and no one should be confused.  I posted something and then thought better of it because I realize it's simply feeding the beast.

 Look, I can only tell you from personal experience...and I do mean PERSONAL experience that Ca is 100% certifiably recklessly crazy.  She is a stalker in every sense of the word.  If you knew what I know as fact you would know  without a doubt that there is nothing beyond her. 

Anyone in her position willing to go to the lengths she has gone to just to try to prove something most ppl already believe is not all there.  I don't for one minute believe Bradley is dating her.  I believe he may be a bit afraid of her but dating her...NO.  Believe what you choose but can we please STOP talking about them.  Talk about him all you want.  Talk about his work or lack of but Don't respond to the ESL person or anyone else who comes her talking crazy shit about Angel etc.  Just ignore it.  I'm setting the example from this point on.

We also do not need to talk about Angel as she is not Bradley's gf and this site has nothing to do with her, I'm sure she is happy doing what she is doing workwise and with whomever she is with. Wow this is good. As for Bradley's work all the best to him hope he finds something that makes him happy. I'm sure that he will live a life with his gf with integrity.

If Bradley chose CA for access, I thought that it was a fool. But I read an opinion of the BBS below and felt that it seemed to really happen. Someone said that he and his family and friend chose CA. It may not be lie.  Thinking so is an action of Bradley.       
He showed on the birthday of Angel that it liked pictures of CA. Why did he do it on the birthday of Angel? Was not it done on other days why? It is doubtful.          
It might be a decision of having chosen not Angel but CA.         
She show his picture to Tweet, and now, is requesting the response from him.  
I do not know. But, he may sell his soul for work if he moved to LA. (This is my doubt. )

IF you are neither then I suppose you should not have responded but since you close to you could have at the very least tried to feign comprehension. I don't think I said or implied that EVERY actor from the UK was from the aristocracy or money (old or new). Just that the industry is dominated by those who are and certainly MOST of those on the A-B list are.
I don't think I made an excuse because no one needs an excuse for living their life anyway they choose. Angel networks and she has friends whose parents are/were well known in the industry. If she had a friend who invited her to industry events with HW royalty she would most certainly attend. Bradley's family isn't poor by any stretch of the imagination and he attended DCL. That said he would be foolish not to network and use the connections available to him. Now run along and take you soap box with you. BTW...being wealthy and connected does preclude hard work and determination.

If we are not going to let this place die a graceful death at least just focus on Bradley and his work. I don't think there is much to speculate about otherwise anywho. Bradley was in the states for a month this year. So far a month. Hopefully he will be back because as we've been discussing it would mean he's auditioning and I think we can all agree we want to see him work.

We don't truly know what is going on with Bradley and his relationships even though some people on here think they do. We can speculate and put forward our theories but unless one of them decides to let us in on the truth we're not going to know anything.

Tammy/ Epaws whoever you are...NO.  He couldn't have worked anywhere as an actor easily but in the UK esp. not. The same problem  exists for actors IN the UK as exists for those who get to cross the pond and make mega money...the industry is rife with the aristocracy and very well connected.  There have been many MANY articles about it.  Look at the back ground of the ppl you are talking about.  Of course they work in the UK before coming here.  That's the point...it's a rigged game there.  The funny thing is Cumberbatch and others actually feel they are being picked on because there are now ppl speaking out against the industry being dominated by the Elite.  Many a black male actor leaves the UK for just that reason as do many actors who are not as well heeled.  

Some actors want to work in roles they believe in and not those left to the peasants after being picked over by the elite.  It's not your life so you don't get to choose how he pursues his career of choice.  An excerpt about Charlie Hunnam:

After Queer As Folk, his next big break was supposed to be the title role in 2002's Nicholas Nickleby. It starred such talents as Jim Broadbent and Juliet Stevenson, and was directed by Douglas McGrath, whose credits include Gwyneth Paltrow's Emma and Bullets over Broadway. However, critically, it was not a success, but more than that, it convinced Charlie that he would have to take only the jobs that he was passionate about. 'Nicholas Nickleby pushed me ever the edge in terms of a policy of zero compromise,' he says. 'I didn't particularly want to do it, I didn't feel I had much to offer it and I wasn't titillated by the character. And I don't share Douglas's view of what film-making should be. I found his version to he derivative, slightly sac­charine and sugar-coated. I was micro-managed.'

His next role was small but pedigree, as a gun-toting albino vigilante in Anthony Minghella's Cold Mountain. 'But between Cold Mountain and Green Street I didn't do anything for 18 months and it's been another 18 months since I made this film, which obviously entails a lot of downtime. But recently Ridley Scott has called. He's been sending bottles of wine and asking me to do a screen test for him. So my plan is starting to pay off because the people who I want to take me seriously are starting to.' It's a risky business. Daniel Day-Lewis springs to mind as a British actor who's managed to combine Hollywood with a career of integrity but I can't immediately think of any others.

Charlie has just turned down $8 million to do a trilogy of films. `I can't really afford to pay my mortgage right now,' he says. `I need to have my head checked. I just have a ridiculous amount of pride. The money will come. As long as the work is good, the money will come. I know already that the right people want to work with me, so it's just a question of persuading the marketing people and the ones who sign the cheques that I'm the right one to back.'

http://www.lilithofsherwood.com/Charlie/EveningStandard/index.htm

That last highlighted portion is what you and those like you need to take note of.  Bradley could be reading well and have directors in his corner...but until he gets someone with money willing to take a risk on him he's not going to land that break out role.  So he networks.  He'd be a FOOL not to get behind closed doors with Murphy del Toro  Harvey Weinstein etc. etc.  If the price he has to pay is others speculating about who he's dating so be it.

If he's decided to use that speculation to his advantage by escorting a 'friend' to events with those names and helping her sell her work in exchange I'd call that smart. It's his life.  He will live with the choices he makes...NOT YOU.  So express an opinion all you want.  At least try to make it an educated one and don't act as if anything he does personally affects you.  It doesn't.  Same goes for NutNut.  I dislike what she represents and the way she used and continues to use young gullible fans.  I find her actions repulsive but if he wants to be allied with her so be.  It has nothing to do with me personally I'm just making observations.

Thses people you name below all worked in British projects. That's where they all started and no part was too small for them. That is why they are where they are at this moment. Who can forget Cumberbatch in Sherlock.I watch alot of British television and all the names below have been seen in a television series including Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. I still say this is the route Bradley shoud have taken.

Bradley is recognied and I'm sure loved in the UK.He could have easily worked there even though he is trying to break into the US market. His presumed refusal to accept anything( because I am sure he could have easily worked in UK if he wanted to) is proof of his massive ego, him ready to sell his soul and his use of GK, that is why he is losing the respect of most on this forum. I am a black woman and people gain my respect by their hard work and acheiving success on your own merit is an accomplishment I admire. Yes there is nothing wrong with help from friends but his actions with this person in public is disgusting.

I think that nobody here thinks that ca is his gf. I understand that the friend helps each other. However, the purposes of ca seem to be different. The problem is an obsession to her Bradley. He is made unhappy.

Judgemental and it wouldn't be so bad if they were not also ignorant of the process.  Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Hunnam are both transplants who had longer CV's than Bradley's and both have spoken about being ready to quit when they finally got their break after trying to jump to the US market and the process of working here started with guest spots.  There are so many other examples esp for those actors from the UK who don't hail from the aristocracy.  

It's  an open secret that just about every actor who has made the jump across the pond are connected and very well heeled.  Most are also very good actors but some...not so much.  

Cumberbatch (Harrow) spoke out because of criticism that British acting is dominated by public school products: Dominic West (Eton); Damian Lewis (Eton); Eddie Redmayne (Eton); and Emma Watson (The Dragon School); Sienna Miller (Heathfield St Mary’s School).  

Those are just to name a few and the list goes on and on.  Our girl attended a rather posh public school (our version of private) as did Henry Cavill, Naomi Harris and to repeat just about every Brit we see on American Film and TV.  She can and did boast about Sir Ian going to see HER in a play.  She is very well connected or she'd have never made it on TNN.  

Bradley did what he had to do in an industry that is brutal and dominated by the uber rich and their children and friends.  He found a way to get his foot in the door and there is zero shame or dishonor in it.  Everyone in every walk of life use whatever connections they have to make it.  

I don't think Bradley is any different from Angel or Colin.  I don't think his goal is to be a superSTAR.  I think his goal is to be an excellent actor in roles he believes in.  I'm actually surprised he hasn't made the move to the US even if temporary.  Then he did do an entire pilot season (smart) and networked.  It's payed excellent benefits and now he has his foot in the door and will need to hustle to open the door wider.  All he can do is to continue to audition and network.  

Don't really get all the bitterness directed at him.  It's his life.  You all fail to recall that Bradley has never called anyone his GF or spoken of his love life...EVER.  We are the ones invading his privacy and attempting to label his relationships based on very limited information and who he's seen with.  Ca has worked really hard to color perception and the other person he's been seen in the public with has not.  The acting community is very insular and friends use other friends contacts and help each other w/projects ALL THE TIME.  It's quid pro quo and what you fail to realize is a RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS.  She did her part he's doing his...and I guess we are determined to do oursThumbs up.  With a little help from our friends.

As you say, his fan is from Merlin and is only the fan who only likes the handsome appearance. Himself continues a mistake pairing with a girl having low level such as nuts- nuts forever. Is such a person given high-quality work? The answer…NO!

Obviously we can never truly know what went on/is going on, but personally I think it's a case of B getting a big head. All those Merlin fans telling you day in and day out that you're the best thing since sliced bread. Just look at his RT's and Likes everytime he farts. For doing what exactly? and Merlin fans continue to lap it up like a kitten to a bowl of milk. There's an idiot born everyday in this fandom, and B banks on them. Bread & Butter baby.
Maybe he had an attitude and turned up his nose at certain offers? word travels fast if that's the case. I know some think it's admirable that he doesn't want to be typecast, but at the end of the day 0 jobs out of how many offers is still a big fat 0 and paper thin CV (minus Homeland of course, and if he was actually offered anything else)
He can't live off Merlin support forever, the fanbase will eventually die out..hopefully. How many new non-merlin fans do you think he's got since the show ended? Is he going to get fans from fast-girls, disconnected, lewis? probability is likely 0%.
Which is WHY the farce continues. "Feed the birds, tuppence a bag"

Popularity with social media doesn't translate to jobs in HW. You have to be in there networking with insiders whether its movie exec. producers casting agents or people working in production. Making connections and friends with insiders for referrals to producers or directors to believe and take that chance on him. If he's auditioned for 100s of roles casting agents probably know him by now and aren't moved by what he has to offer.
But then he could always fall back to being a social media star with the amount of fan followers he gains daily.

I certainly didn't mean to take anything away from Angel, she had the longest CV when Merlin started, and has done great things since Merlin finished. Its just that the show never gave her a chance to show what she can really do. I would put Angel and Colin in the same basket ambition-wise - and that is to be a jobbing actor whether it be theatre, screen (tv/film) voice, there is no need to look outside UK for work - I don't think either have ambitions to be an A-list celeb, but look at honing their craft and being in quality productions.

Only a wish is high in him. He does not have a carrier. At first it is important that the name is known. As for the method to sell "romance", I do not have a meaning to some extent if I do not pair with an actress with the popularity and the popularity. In the case of him..."She" acts on nothing for him. ''HOMELAND'' to his next work let's pray for being a chance.By the way, why does he not find work in the U.K.?

I wouldn't even call it a guest shot... Bradley can do what he wants, but it would be nice if he had taken 1 or 2 of those roles he may have been offered... As for Angel, I agree with @rook. She has made comments about how much she loves London. JMO there is no reason for her to go outside of that. She is already a top-notch actress and will continue to do well while getting roles that show her incredible talent. When I think of her on Merlin, I just loved those few parts where is got to shine. She and Anthony Head were superb.

Reply-to:It would be nice if Angel was more persistent in following her goals of making it in HW. Looking at Zoe Saldana or Nicole Behare, things are changing for WOC. Shes talented but is she driven & determined to make it happen. Or will she allow that current perception of WOC to deter her?

I think that Angel loves her craft, loves to  work...but I don't think she cares to run after "stardom"--I think she likes her privacy, realizes what being A-list would mean. I don't think she'd turn down a role that would put her on the A-list, I just think she doesn't have a driving ambition to BE A-list. She seems happy when she is working in quality productions, period.

Angel has the longest CV from the Merlin cast. She already had lots of shows to her credit before Merlin and now has added another four more shows to to her long list since Merlin.Being a WOC has not hindered her. Only the Merlin fandom had a stick up their ass re her color and that's because she played Bradley's love interest on the show. That fandom was/is so racist.

Response to Rook, even though Angel was overlooked on Merlin, she has done well since the show. Dancing on the Edge, The Tunnel, Good People and is presently in production for Thunderbirds. So I think Angel has done very well since Merlin ended. The only one that remained unemployed for two years was Bradley except for his ten second guest spot on Homeland coming. All the others did something even not huge like Rupert but they worked.

Maybe Eoin will learn something from playing a feminist... Colin is a bit type-cast, too, in somewhat quirky roles. Although I think BJ is quite a good actor, he's a generic blond, and there are tons of them going for the same roles. My gut feeling is that he turned down some good but type-casting roles, and that may have led to a perception that he's too picky...who knows, maybe the guest spot on Homeland will do something for him...

credit where credit is due - they've ALL walked away from Merlin without being typecast (possibly excepting Tom, but that's for his build rather than acting) Look at Eoin being billed as the new Dr McDreamy AND a feminist LOL, Alex also has a 10 part series being filmed. Angel is always going to have it tougher, firstly being a WOC will always make it harder for her, secondly she was never given a chance in Merlin, her character was reduced to a 3rd wheel and the producers never gave her enough media exposure (possibly because of the shitty Merlin fans - I don't understand people who say Merlin fandom is so wonderful and friendly etc, honestly the fandom is vile)
Whatever BJ has been doing is not working well for him, and makes me wonder what happened, was he not prepared for Merlin finishing? or did he piss important people off, certainly some of his media behaviour (that NTA red carpet comes to mind) has not been stellar

Colin escapes surely from the image of merlin. He is not making "Imitation" romance a selling point like Bradley. I like the actor who works honestly like colin more. Bradley's time to play is too long. I think that the actor is work not to sell the romance but to show acting. By when do you keep playing game for the access?
He should mind the future as the actor. Your fan is only Arthur's fan.

It is too miserable. I think that he realizes the limitations in this game.
He should finish contracting. As for this game, anything does not work for him. I think that no one takes notice even if she of D list makes noise.
Perhaps, the fan of Bradley protects him. Frankly speaking, his agent is incapable.
