What Rupert is up to…

Rupert is:

  • 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.
  • appearing in a film called The Tutor, with a 2017 release date.  I don’t know anything more about this, but it’s listed on IMDB.

Celebrity Charity Cricket Fun Day, Althorp (2017)

Rupert was one of the celebrities participating in this cricket match supporting Runs4Funds, the Northamptonshire County Cricket Club official Players’ Charity. The day was hosted at the Althorp estate. Marvellous stuff!

Alas and alack, I couldn’t attend – but my ‘twin’ Jenny did, and kindly provided the photographic evidence to prove it!

Sir Leon art by RedScharlach

At last! A line of Sir Leon merchandise!!!

The whimsically talented artist RedScharlach has now included Sir Leon among her lovely Merlin crew. All the related goodies can be found on RedBubble.

Follow the link, and you’ll see the greeting card option. Scroll down, click Available Products if it’s not already selected, and you’ll see all the goodies available featuring Sir Leon.

This includes:

  • t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies in a range of styles and colours
  • cases for iPhone, iPad and Samsung Galaxy
  • cushion covers and acrylic blocks
  • mugs and travel mugs
  • tote bags and drawstring bags
  • greeting cards, postcards and stickers
  • spiral notebooks and hardcover journals

The sticker doesn’t appear on the page linked above, but you can find it here.

It’s worth noting that Sir Leon is also included in the Team Merlin group, along with darling Gaius and the other regular characters. And what serendipity that Sir Leon (on his own) is featured against a purple background – my favourite colour! … My credit card just took a right hammering!

Wales Comic Con, Wrexham (2017)

Rupert attended this fan convention on 8-9 April 2017, along with his Merlin colleagues and fellow knights, Tom Hopper and Alex Vlahos.

A terrific time was had by all! I wrote about it at length in this post on the Merlin Locations site. But here’s a little bit of Ruperlicious goodness to tide you over!

These three are just totes adorbs!

breaking down the showreel

As you’ll have seen from previous posts, Rupert now has a showreel available on his page at Curtis Brown. You can also view it on Vimeo.

It’s nicely made, and includes a few surprises, so I thought I would break it down into clips. The links are to the pages on this site which feature the content.

[1] Businessman in an ad for Virgin Atlantic.

Then we segue into music: the song ‘Civilisation’ by Justice. I like the lyrics as a context for all these different roles!

[2] Sir Leon in TV series Merlin.

[3] Boyfriend (running backwards!) in a music video for the song ‘House of Glass’ by Worship.

[4] Unknown! A bit of urgent action, in regular shirt and trousers. (Sorry, I snagged the Vimeo icons there as well.)

[5] Mark Arlington in an episode of TV series Shameless.

showreel

Rupert’s new agents Curtis Brown have at last updated his page on their website, and included a wonderful new showreel!!! I’m really delighted with this – it’s nicely made, shows off a good range of what Rupert can do, and it includes glimpses of things I haven’t seen before. (I’ll go through it in detail, and screen-cap the new stuff soon, but not today.)

Meanwhile, here is the showreel, shared from Vimeo.
