appearing as Jack in season 2 of Bridgerton!!! I always wanted to see him in a Regency romance… This is apparently “a major new role … created for the series; he is not in the books”. | Deadline
returning as Atticus (Hurrah!) in the audio play Cicero: The Crossroads, a follow-up to Big Finish’s first series of Cicero (2018). The digital download is available to pre-order here at Big Finish, with more information here. It is due for release in July 2021. New photo shared below!
unfortunately on an unexpected holiday! Dear Evan Hansen, along with other West End shows, has closed down for now, due to the current pandemic. I’m so sorry for everyone affected by this closure, including the theatre staff as well as the cast and the audiences. ETA: DEH West End is back from 26 October 2021, with tickets on sale from 18 May. Indications are that Rupert will return!
Sabienna Bowman explains “Why Jack from Bridgerton Season 2 looks so familiar”.
The ton is absolutely buzzing about the latest additions to the cast of Bridgerton season 2, including the mysterious Jack played by Rupert Young. Even though he’s not a household name just yet, fans of British TV have likely seen Young before. The 42-year-old actor has been working steadily since 2004, and has managed to make small appearances in everything from Doc Martin to Doctor Who.
The song “You Will Be Found” is performed in this video by the Dear Evan Hansen Broadway, North American Tour and West End companies – including some lovely glimpses of our Rupert. It is available on YouTube.
This holiday season, we may not be together, but YOU ARE NOT ALONE
An open letter has been sent to the UK Prime Minister, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Secretary of State for Culture, that begins: “We are concerned that British theatre is on the brink of ruin.”
There are reports that 70% of theatre venues will run out of money by the end of 2020 due to the restrictions necessary in response to the current pandemic. The letter calls for the UK government to help support the theatres and their workforce, and ensure the future of the theatre industry.
Rupert has signed the letter, along with his fellow nominees for the Olivier Awards. This includes a number of Rupert’s Dear Evan Hansen colleagues, Cassidy Janson (in Company with Rupert) and Colin Morgan (in Merlin with Rupert).
At this stage, the Dear Evan Hansen production is closed until 1 August 2020, and has been since mid March.
The inimitable Noodle Snake recorded an amusing podcast which all began with her purchase of a Showmasters poster featuring our own dear Rupert.
Listen in to all the confusions of her Quest to work out why the poster credits Rupert with work in both Merlin and Doctor Who! This very website receives several honourable mentions!! I feel like we’ve punched through to the next level of fame!!! (Or was that infamy?)
Thank you kindly, Noodle mate! I was in need of cheering up today, for sure. ♥
