Question 1: What is the ONE thing that you admire the most about Rupert, above all the other traits that he has. Explain.
Sam: He’s humble. How can you not love someone who’s grown up in the spotlight, made millions of dollars, and is the little fluttering fantasy of many girls (and let’s face it, women too) who still blushes at compliment’s, doesn’t take himself too seriously, wears his favorite clothes because he likes them, and is so close with his family?

Question 2: What is your favorite “new” fact that you learned about him this year and why.
Sam: Well, I like seeing him out and about more with “lady friends”.

Question 3: Favorite interview of this year(so far)?

Sam: It’s not from this year, but The Daily Mail interview. It showed a vulnerable side to him we’ve yet to see. Sure, he’s humble, but he’s always been kind of emtionally distant. Having access to him in this way was touching and a little bit heartbreaking. Still, it was good to know a little of what’s going on inside of his head.

Question 4: If you could remake your favorite movie of all time, what would the movie be and what character would Rupert play?

Sam: First, let me say my favorite movie is The War Room, but since that’s a documentary, let’s leave it alone. Although, seeing Rupert as James Carville would be AWESOME. Other than that, it’s hard to say what my favorite movie is. I’d love to see him as Andrew Largemann in Garden State just because Rupert’s never really been melancholy and deadpan. He’d probably make me WEEP in Mysterious Skin. I might die if for some reason they remade that and he was in it. Some fans might not be able to handle him in that film though. I don’t’ want to go into detail, but suffice it to say it would be very heavy. But replacing Elijah Wood’s character in Everything is Illuminated would be so cool! I guess I’d just love to see Rupert play something kind of flat. Rupert’s got that expressive face, so he can say so much with the curve of his mouth, and that is a necessity in roles like this one.

Question 5: Finish the sentence-In the next five years, I want to see Rupert—

Sam: With some respectable, good, and critically acclaimed roles under his belt…well on his way to a prestigious award.

Question 1: What is the ONE thing that you admire the most about Rupert, above all the other traits that he has. Explain.

Karo: He has never openly talked badly about anyone or anything. How many celebrities can claim the same?

Question 2: What is your favorite “new” fact that you learned about him this year and why.

Karo: He’s excited about playing Eddie the Eagle as his first post-Potter project! 😀

Question 3: Favorite interview of this year(so far)?

Karo: NO Magazine. Raw and honest, and we hadn’t seen that before.

Question 4: If you could remake your favorite movie of all time, what would the movie be and what character would Rupert play? Explain.

Karo: lol, my favorite movie of all times is actually Dumbo (the Disney film with the flying elephant). So, if Rupert were to “play” anyone in it, I’d say he’d play the little mouse. 😀

Question 5: Finish the sentence-In the next five years, I want to see Rupert—

Karo: Filming, filming, filming.

Question 1: What is the ONE thing that you admire the most about Rupert, above all the other traits that he has. Explain.

Michelle: Rupert has so many traits that I admire, but what I love the most about him is that’s he’s remained completely himself throughout the years. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to be in the business that he’s in, where image is everything. It’s pretty brutal, but Rupert isn’t interested in impressing the press, or anybody else for that matter, by being someone that he’s not. He’s not going to make an interviewers job easier by being instantaneously quippy, talkative, and “sound-bite” ready. He’s not going to make himself uncomfortable at premiers by dressing in something he wouldn’t normally wear. He’s Rupert-what you see is what you get. I love that about him, he’s true to himself.

Question 2: What is your favorite “new” fact that you learned about him this year and why.

Michelle: So many great things that we’ve learned about this year, and it’s only April! But I think that my favorite was in the NO magazine article, see the reason why below in the next question. 🙂

Question 3: Favorite interview of this year(so far)?

Michelle: Actually there are three, because I can’t choose! lol One of them is the NO magazine interview. I was ecstatic when he confessed that playing Ron in Harry Potter was kind of holding him back, and he never got to push himself. Most of his fans have always felt this way, so it was comforting to get that  confirmation from the man himself. Another one of my favorites is the interview he and Robert Sheehan did with Empire, for the Cherrybomb press junkets. When they start discussing the fan campaign, just..the look on Rupert’s face is sad, overwhelming, happy, and a bit embarrased all at once. It’s a tiny glimpse of emotional!Rupert. Trust me, look close at about 2:49. 😉  My third one is the radio interview he did with Dermot O’Leary. The whole interview is just fun and brilliant, and I think that Dermot really brought out the best in Rupert, which is what a good interviewer does! Plus, Rupert’s voice on radio is  gorgeous.

Question 4: If you could remake your favorite movie of all time, what would the movie be and what character would Rupert play? Explain.

Michelle: I have a lot of favorites, but I would be the happiest girl in the world if Rupert played Robert DeNiro’s character,Travis Bickle, in the remake of Taxi Driver. The whole story line is really interesting and a little depressing; you watch the Bickle character, who’s a little obsessive and intense to begin with,  slowly start to go crazy. It’s a very character-driven movie, and I think Rupert would be perfect for this type of role. And there’s this  sort of appeal for me, with hearing the characters thoughts in a movie, I find it very interesting and engaging.

Question 5: Finish the sentence-In the next five years, I want to see Rupert—

Michelle: getting a lot of roles that will really challenge him and his talent. He’s got so much to offer, someone just needs to send him an awesome script that will allow him to unleash it.
