Rupert appeared in Uncle Bobby’s Croft as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008. I don’t have any other information about this production, or what character Rupert played in it. However, a kind commenter told me that this was written by Rupert’s brother Justin Young.
If anyone has any further details, I’d love to hear more!
Rupert played the character Brian Curtis in this play by Terrence Rattigan, for the English Touring Theatre (ETT) company.

The cast works away with a light touch to show the changing dynamics between the characters. … Jenna Harrison is perfect as the luscious yet vulnerable Diana, as is Rupert Young as the practical Brian. Hannah Yelland as the love-lorn ‘Jack’ and Adam James as the commander grow warmer before our eyes. Under Paul Miller’s crisp direction, the production has a very organic feel to it. Graham Gurrin, The Stage, 19 February 2007
Rupert played the character Prince Peter in this Christmas pantomime.
Salisbury Playhouse (6 December 2006 – 6 January 2007)
Director: Jeremy Bond
Kevin Catchpole in The British Theatre Guide (2006): ‘… the role of Prince Peter goes this year to newcomer Rupert Young, a young man with a friendly personality and a pleasing singing voice who is a good match for the pretty Aurora of Diana Eskell.’
Isn’t that just our Rupert to a T? ♥
Lesley Bates in The Stage (12 December 2006) mentioned that: ‘Rupert Young’s tree-hugging prince is matched by Diana Eskell’s sparky princess …’
(I’m sure Merlin fans will have a chuckle over the ‘tree-hugging prince’…)
Rupert had a small uncredited role in this tv series.
Episode 1.2 (27 April 2006)
This show is about a group of mature-age medical students, and it’s really rather good! (Steven Waddington is great value, as usual, as the protagonist’s husband, as is Claudie Blakley as her best friend.) One of the students lives in residences, and is plagued by the party habits of the younger students. Rupert is one of those younger students. He only appears in two very brief scenes, and has an even briefer line in each.
