Welcome!

This fansite is dedicated to the amazing actor Rupert Young who played Sir Leon in the BBC show Merlin, among many other wonders.

If you want to keep an eye on what’s happening with Rupert you can click here for the current news. For now at least, I will also keep a running list of site updates on the news page.

In the meantime, you might like to browse around the site to find the answers to those age-old questions:

  • When is Rupert’s birthday?
  • Where was he born?
  • What does the F stand for?
  • What is his favourite colour?
  • And what else has Rupert worked on with Merlin director Jeremy Webb?

The Ruperlicious Crew

My name is Julie, and you’ll probably see a fair bit of me around. That’s because I am the Brash Aussie member of the team! There’s a stalwart crew of Rupert fans working on various aspect of this site with me, however, so if there is credit to be had I will only claim a very small portion.

Feel free to contact us via the Comment forms on any of the pages, or email me on julie@rupertfyoung.com

In particular, we always try to give credit where it’s due for work, including links to the originals where possible. As fans, we share the work of others with our fellow fans for enjoyment only. If you own any of this work, and have concerns, then please get in touch.

But in the meantime…

Have fun!

  4. Hello Julie,
    I browsed your site dedicated to the elegant and attractive Rupert Young and which impressive work.
    Oh I am French, I apologize for my imperfect English and for the faults.
    I am a big admirer of Rupert, I find that he has an incredible talent and a very beautiful voice when he sings, although I know only his interpretation of “Marry me a little”. I followed his work in the cinema and in the TV since 2004, it had certainly small roles but which incredible presence. I would like to see him more often on our screens of course whether it is on the TV or on the movies no matter. For example, I find that he would have been perfect to play in the series Downton Abbey. In France, we qualify its physical appearance in the cinema as: “un jeune premier” or “le gendre idéal” because he is very handsome.
    I would like very much seeing him to the theater unfortunately London is a little bit far and the BBC does not broadcast plays.
    Julie you who are from now on his official biographer :-) and yes he well has to know you now, I ask myself some questions his subject. When you will have the opportunity to meet him you can think of me ?
    1 – On a Russian site, I saw that he was noted as being married to a Czech starlet (link below), nevertheless he doesn’t wear alliance but I have difficulty in believing that one if handsome man is a single man.

    2 – I noticed that he wore a signet ring in the little finger of the left hand (his brother wears the same in the right hand). What represents this signet ring for him and who is the motive?
    3 – Except in Writers Retreat we are soon going to revise him in a movie or a new series?
    Thank you a lot Julie and see you soon.

    1. Bonjour, Sandra! I am sorry for not replying sooner. Work is taking up a lot of my time lately! Though I have to admit that going to see High Society has taken up a bit of time, too. :-)

      Of course I agree with all you say about Rupert – so delicious and so talented! I hope you will get the chance to see him on stage at some point. I am sure you would find the effort and expense well worth it. He has such a presence…

      In answer to your questions:
      1. I am pretty sure Rupert isn’t married, but I don’t really know. It is hard to imagine he’s single unless he wants to be, that’s for sure! :-) Well, as long as he’s happy, that’s the most important thing.
      2. I am curious about the signet ring, too, though I haven’t been brave enough to ask yet. I assume it has a very personal meaning to him. One day I’ll ask, I promise.
      3. The only things I’m aware of are listed on the current news page, which you’ve seen. There is this mysterious film he worked on in the US, but I have no idea what that was or whether it will come to anything. We will have to live in hope!

      Thank you again for your comment, and for all your kind words, not to mention your excellent taste in admiring Rupert. ♥
