On Sunday, January 4th, Rupert ended his run as Sir Frank Finger in It's Only a Play on Broadway. His final performance was in front of a standing room only crowd. At the end of the performance, he was presented with white roses from Matthew Broderick and was given big hugs by both him and Stockard Channing. Congratulations to Rupert for a successful run on Broadway, and we hope that we see more of him on the great white way in the future!
After the final performance, Rupert and his cast-mates headed to the Royalton hotel for a farewell party for Rupert, Megan Mullally and Nathan Lane, all of whom departed the play the same day. Rupert mingled and shared laughs with Nathan Lane, who had nothing but kind things to say about Rupert while promoting the play.
Rupert also participated in a BBC2 documentary celebrating Julie Walters, his Harry Potter and Driving Lessons co-star. Rupert had this to say while reminiscing about his time on set with Julie: "...having her there made it so much easier for me, because she put us all at ease. She was really kind of nurturing and a real mother figure to have on set."
