Are we all small …

… or is Rupert tall?

The latter is true! And tbh I think he only gets taller.

Check out this delightful Instagram post from Lucy Anderson, who plays Rupert’s stage-daughter in Dear Evan Hansen. The cast and the show received numerous nominations in the Olivier Awards 2020. Lucy was congratulating the Olivier Awards 2022 nominees, while sharing an earlier photo of the DEH cast.

Are we all small or is @rupertfyoung tall?
Sending my congratulations to all those nominated at this year’s @olivierawards.
Whether you’re a nominee, an actor, someone who works in technical theatre, an understudy or swing, a drama school student, a waitress who’s working in the day and learning audition sides at night, freelancer, someone working 3 jobs to be able to pay for classes and casting workshops.. everyone in this industry from top to bottom, left to right matters. Its been a very tough time. Covid has affected this industry and those involved in so many ways, more ways than even I’d imagined. But slowly and surely.. we’re coming back.
If you’re reading this lovely post about theatre.. may I also draw your attention to the crisis in Ukraine.
Donate. Spread resources. Even if all you’re able to do is keep them in your thoughts, it’s enough. 🇺🇦

P.S. See this post for an instance of Rupert looking (slightly) smaller by comparison!

“I know you!”

Rupert caught up with fellow LAMDA graduate, Habib Nasib Nader, who is currently starring in Life of Pi at Wyndam’s Theatre in London’s West End. Habib celebrated with this Instagram post.

“I know you!”
It’s been a long time @rupertfyoung ! Since graduating @lamdadrama in 2003, life has taken us in many different directions but it feels so good to now have you as a @dmtwestend neighbour in @dehwestend The noisy next door neighbours have arrived! 🐅 🛶 🦓 🦧 🐢 Great to catch up.

Rupert Young is my Favourite Doctor Who (2020)

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. ♥
