Oddly enough, he has also played “Merlin” in “Merlin & the Book of Beasts” which incidentally I DO NOT recommend, Merlin fans. 
Oddly enough again, he has also played a man named Dr. Gaius Baltar in “Battle Star Galactica” which I am a fan of and DO recommend esp. if you love Sci-fi.

The mysterious Julius Borden arrives in Camelot with news of a magical secret that threatens to change the landscape of the kingdom for ever, as the fantasy drama continues. He has located the final part of the key to the tomb of Ashkanar – an ancient mausoleum which holds a very special treasure: the last remaining dragon's egg.
Merlin is understandably drawn in by Borden's news and promises to help him. But just who is this enigmatic stranger and, more importantly, what does he really want with the egg?
Merlin is played by Colin Morgan and Julius Borden by James Callis.
