What Rupert is up to…

Rupert is:

    • playing Orsino in a musical adaptation of Twelfth Night at the Young Vic from 2 October to 17 November 2018. What’s On Stage story here and tickets available here.
    • a guest at the convention Magic Con to be held in Bonn, Germany on 26-28 April 2019, along with Alex Vlahos (Mordred in Merlin).
    • appearing as James in new 6-part comedy-drama The Bisexual for Channel 4. The lead roles are played by Desiree Akhavan (also writing and directing), Maxine Peake and Brian Gleeson – and given the title, I sure hope Rupert gets to date at least one if not all of them! Notification via his agent’s site. No mention on the official website or press releases (yet).
    • singing (and dancing???!!!) as Mr Knightley in a new adaptation of Jane Austen’s masterpiece, titled EMMA, A New Musical. He will be in the London production, while another production is running on Broadway. I am just blown and overblown with bliss at the very idea! We don’t have any details of dates yet, but here’s the announcement in broadwayworld.com. And I would just like to add OMFG!!!
    • featured in the new trailer for the film Writers Retreat (2015), which will be available (finally!) in the US on 17 April, via Amazon for DVD (Region 1) and Prime Video. Huzzah!
    • voicing the role of Cicero’s friend Atticus in a new Big Finish series of audio plays called Cicero, which is being released in May 2018. It is currently available for pre-order. I found Cicero following a heads-up from Angie about Rupert also being part of the Big Finish adaptation of Dracula. Thank you, Angie!
    • the first guest announced as attending Celtic Reminders, a Merlin convention to be held in Paris on 13-14 October 2018. Hurrah! Up to another three guests will be announced. update: Unfortunately this event has now been cancelled.
    • 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”.

    1. Thank you, Bess! I’ve finally managed to include these details on the page. Apologies for being so tardy, but I’ve been travelling, and had other things on my over-burdened little mind. I hope you enjoy the play! :-)
