What Rupert is up to…

Rupert is:

  • appearing in an ITV show called Judge Rinder’s Crown Court to be screened in two parts, at 8pm on Friday 8 and Friday 15 December 2017. Rupert plays the man accused of murder, James Byron. This is a remake of the ITV show Crown Court, which ran from 1972 to 1984. update: I’ve created a page for it here.
  • attending Medway Comic and Screen Festival on 24 March 2018, along with Tom Hopper and Alex Vlahos (Percival and Mordred in Merlin). Rupert isn’t listed on the official website yet, but it has been announced by Dan John, who manages his event appearances.
  • attending EM-CON Worcester on 8 April 2018 as a media guest, with autographs and photographs available.
  • appearing in Will, a 10-episode series on Shakespeare with a rock n’ roll aesthetic. It looks like the sort of thing you’ll either love or hate – and I’m hoping I’ll love it! IMDB page, with no listing for Rupert. Confirmed with Rupert, who says he’s playing Sir Walter Raleigh! Release date of 10 July in the US and 20 September in Spain. update: He is now listed on IMDB as appearing in the episode 104 “Brave New World”.
  • appearing in a film called The Tutor, with a 2017 release date.  This is listed on IMDB, but it hasn’t happened yet, and he suspects it won’t happen now.
