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. update: Rehearsal photos by the ever-reliable Johan Persson are now available on the Young Vic Facebook page and What’s On page! There is only one of Rupert, but it is so utterly lovely… ♥ (I’ve copied it below.)
    • appearing as Marcus in the film The Secret Garden, with Colin Firth as Lord Archibald Craven and Julie Walters as Mrs Medlock. Discovered via Rupert’s page at his agency! IMDB page for the film. No news on release dates yet.
    • a guest at the convention MCM Comic Con Scotland in Glasgow on 22-23 September 2018, along with Merlin’s Alex Vlahos (Mordred). For more info, check out the website.
    • a guest at the convention Myth & Magic in Blackpool, England on 13-15 September 2019, along with fellow Merlin alumni Emilia Fox (Morgause), Fintan McKeown (King Odin), Michelle Ryan (Nimueh) and Alex Vlahos (Mordred). For more info see the event’s website and Twitter feed: phoenixconventions.co.uk; twitter.com/PhoenixConsUK
    • 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!!!

    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! :-)
