What Rupert is up to…
- 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.
- attending Medway Comic and Screen Festival on 24 March 2018, along with Alex Vlahos (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”.
