Wii Music (2008)

Rupert featured as the drummer in a few ads for the Nintendo Wii Music game. Thank you to Sandra for the heads-up!

I am dating this to October 2008, as that’s when Wii Music was launched – and it seems right, judging by his hair at least. (The following videos were uploaded to YouTube in 2013, but he had long hair throughout that year.)

… I always did have a thing for drummers.

Afterlife (2008)

Rupert played the character Kurt (and was part of the ensemble) for this production of a new play by Michael Frayn.

  • National Theatre (3 June – 30 August 2008)
  • Director: Michael Blakemore

The production is still featured here on the National Theatre website.

Primeval (2008)

Rupert played the character Mike in the following episode:

  • Episode #2.2 (19 January 2008)
  • Director: Andrew Gunn

He was The Handsome Man who got the girl… and had to make an impression in five seconds flat. Perfectly cast, really!
