Rupert featured in the pilot episode of Goths, directed by Jeremy Webb for Merlin producers Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy of Shine. The episode was written by Jack Thorne and Ben Schiffer.
Unfortunately nothing has (yet?) come of this, but it seems obvious to me that we need more Rupert on our television screens, so let’s hope there are other producers who agree!
When I had the chance once, I commented to Jeremy that I could see Rupert as a Goth.
‘No,’ he replied, ‘he was the chartered surveyor.’
LOL! I got that wrong! Sounds like Rupert was the straight man of the show!
If anyone has any more info about this, we’d love to hear it.
P.S. The attached date of 1 November is approximate, but it was definitely filmed in 2010.
