It does not matter if you are the biggest movie star or biggest television star on the planet, everybody had to start out somewhere and everyone needed that big breakthrough role to get their careers moving. While some have seen their careers on the rise since their breakthrough role, there are others who have become defined by it.
It will be interesting to see just which way British actor Bradley James goes with his career, following his big breakthrough acting role.Bradley was cast in the role of Arthur in the hit British television series Merlin, appearing in 65 episodes between 2008 and 2012 but what else has he done with his career since landing the role?
Well, the truth is, not a great deal, as most of his time was dedicated to Merlin and his role as Arthur, although he has appeared in a couple of small movies along the way. Bradley James appeared in the short Portabello 196 back in 2009, before then appearing in the movie Fast Girls, with Lily James and Rupert Graves, in 2012. Other than that, Bradley has not done very much else.
Merlin aired for fives seasons, before coming to an end in 2012 and, since then,Bradley James has seen his acting work dry up a little. Unless Bradley begins to land some more acting roles in the coming years, it looks like his whole career could become defined by his role as Arthur in Merlin. Watch this space!
