This is going to be so good for Rupert. Everyone who’s worked with him loves him, and their not afraid to say it! I’m so excited to see what he does next!

I agree Sam. I also like how we learned Pope referred Rupert and they all immediately got excited. Rupert’s got mad respect from the industry folks.

What a great interview. Everyone who works with Rupert only has good words about him. No wonder Martin Pope wanted Rupert for the role.

So, was it Anna or Laura who said Tony did not… in the end… ? hehehehe…

“the confidence with which he approaches his work” 😀

Oh yeah, I was absolutely excited to hear that a producer recommended him. Reminds me of how Jeremy Brock wanted him for Driving Lessons.

Folks beyond the casting couch wanting him!!!!!

I also love how folks that have worked with him, say the same thing about his acting (the same thing that draws us into his acting.)

He can just do so much with so little, and there’s this believability….
