Happy Birthday Rupert Friend!

Today (October 9th) is the 40th birthday of Emmy Award Nominee Rupert Friend (aka P&P 05's own Mr. Wickham). Rupert was born Rupert William Anthony Friend on October 9th (or was it Oct 1st??? But then, Rupert posts on the 9th...), 1981 in Oxfordshire, England, UK.
Rupert, officially joined Twitter (in 2013): @rupertfriend and blogs on WhoSay.  He's on Facebook and Instagram too (though he’s been inactive for two years now). If you're a fan, you can follow him in social media and be sure to wish him a Happy Birthday today.

Side Note: Celebrating Rupert’s birthday today (October 9th! Though I’ve been celebrating it here on every first of Oct for many years now, and when RF first joined Twitter (and here on this blog, IG and FB) in 2013, he didn’t correct me when I said HBD to him {he only said “thank you!” }...and since his bio on IMDB {it’s still listed there on the 1st for a long time now!} and Wiki {they changed it to Oct. 9th last year or so and back again on the1st...}, and his fansites has it listed on Oct 1st...I kept posting his bday on the first, so I’m gonna do it different  today (as I noticed he’s been posting his TY bday wishes on the 9th, since 2015).

Happy Birthday Rupert Friend!!!

Worth re-posting here are these interesting RF info I previously posted...

multi-talented actor/writer/director (he can sing too! Watch him sing in Mrs. Palfrey and listen to him sing in Lullaby movies!), Rupert has two short films (he co-wrote and co-produced) titled The Suicide Brothers (2010 with Keira Knightley and Tom Mison co-starred with him) and Steve (2011) starring Colin FirthKeira Knightley, and Tom Mison), which he also wrote, co-produced, and directed. Two years ago, Rupert Friend was honored a Crystal Image Award for his work on 'Steve'Videos: Watch director Rupert Friend promotes his short film 'Steve' starring Colin Firth and Keira Knightley

As for his acting and movies, for those of you looking for a movie starring RF in a bigger, leading male role where he plays the good guy (handsome and charming too), check out and see Rupert in The Young Victoria (as Prince Albert) with Emily Blunt and Mrs Palfrey at The Claremont (as Ludovic Meyer...see a video clip of him singing of my favorite scenes with him in the movie). I highly recommend you check out and see RF in these two great films. You'll love him, he was amazing in both films! But if you prefer the bad boy type of roles he played (and quite convincingly as well...he's such a very good, underrated, and versatile character actor!)... then, watch him in his small (and still memorable) supporting roles in films like Pride & Prejudice (2005) as unlikable Mr. Wickham and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas as the bad boy jerk Liutenant Kotler.

Also, check out and listen to Rupert singing "Declaration" and a duet called "Suddenly" with Lullaby co-star Clémence Poésy from the folk/jazz genre Lullaby soundtrack (which featured , the catchy tune from the Lullaby trailer)
