“Rupert Young reveals the joys of ‘Bridgerton’ series two” by Far Out Magazine

An interview by Calum Russell in response to Bridgerton’s second season.

Read the full interview on faroutmagazine.co.uk.

Do you think there’s a reason behind Bridgerton’s success?

It’s something that everyone can watch and it’s easy to follow, you’re interested in all the characters. People are represented on the screen, it just seems like a glamorous, joyous time and a celebration of people. I think it took everyone by surprise how popular it was, but it just shows that people deep down love a great love story and love that kind of period.

“In Conversation with Bridgerton’s Rupert Young” by Fucking Young! (2022)

An interview by Mira Postolache for the rather provocatively named Fucking Young! magazine…

A letter to your FUTURE self. What would you write?

Dear Me,

Do not overthink. Try new things constantly. Do not be afraid of failing. Don’t procrastinate. Don’t worry about what others think of you. Don’t put off anything. Let go of things you have no control over.

Love Me.

“The ‘Bridgerton’ Cast Questionnaire” by shondaland (2022)

Another wonderful piece by Valentina Valentini on our Rupert!

Find the questionnaire on shondaland.com. Rupert shares lots of lovely thoughts on his own family, and then finishes on a delightful high note:

Is there a character in the series, who is not your own, whom you are drawn to or can relate to, and why?

Eloise. I love the way she doesn’t want to conform to what society expects of her and tries to live her life on her own terms.

“‘Bridgerton’ Has a New Lord Featherington” by shondaland (2022)

Wonderful interview by Valentina Valentini with Rupert about joining Bridgerton’s second season… but beware spoilers!

Find the interview on shondaland.com.

Rupert Young talks about joining the mega hit, and those spicy scenes between Lord and Lady F.

Bonus: There is also a Telegraph interview with Polly Walker (who plays Lady Featherington). It’s behind a membership wall, but this Twitter thread provides a good summary. Among other things, Polly says:

There’s not a lot of room for the exploration of mature love in the marriage mart world of Bridgerton. … it’s so good that they’ve shown that people over 25 have feelings, desires and needs.

Pre-Premiere Photo Shoot (2022)

Our dear Lord Rupert has tended to keep his private life private, which I know we all respected. However, his preparations for the Bridgerton s2 premiere led to him sharing the following story on Instagram.

Rupert: Here is the incredible outfit from @azfactory Verity was going to wear to the Bridgerton 2 Premiere.

Rupert’s long-time love Verity is looking gorgeous in her AZ Factory outfit for the premiere – a green skirt with black top and shoes, and coordinated black mask.

Then this happened….


Oh noes! Darn pandemic! (Spoiler: All seems well now.)

So we had to get our resident 4 year old photographer to take a photo in our kitchen instead of the red carpet.

Awww… Rupert and Verity have a child! (And one that can operate a smartphone! Is that par for the course these days?) I’m sure they make for a delightful family; the toys on the floor say “happy home” to me.

Also: Rupert in a dark green velvet suit! {swoons} An elegant tribute to the Featherington family’s penchant for colourful clothes. And I love how coordinated our lord and his lady are, black masks and all.

As is proper, Rupert tags the sources of their finery. Verity’s outfit is from AZ Factory. Rupert’s outfit is from Turnbull & Asser, his shoes are from Grenson Shoes, and he was styled by Ellie Witt.

So had to stand on my own

Aw, poor Rupert on his own on the premiere’s red carpet…

With a lovely smile – and one last shout-out to FACEGYM!

Thank you @facegym for getting my face premiere ready

(Eagle-eyed fans will notice there was one more photo or video in Rupert’s story – which I didn’t save. From memory, it was the Bridgerton 2 trailer…?)

Thank you, Rupert, for sharing these glimpses into your life with us, and for telling such an engaging story. You look so happy! Which makes me happy. Love to all of you from all of us. ♥

“Why Jack From Bridgerton Season 2 Looks So Familiar” by Looper (2021)

The ton is absolutely buzzing about the latest additions to the cast of Bridgerton season 2, including the mysterious Jack played by Rupert Young.
