On October 9th, FMRF will be celebrating our first birthday. (Along with someone else’s 37th birthday — I wonder who?) Please make sure to join us for a day-long celebration including a few special gifts (and gifs) for the birthday boy and our “BEST OF FMRF” posts from throughout the past year. We’ll laugh and cry together as we rehash our time spent honoring and adoring Rupert and all of the characters he has so vividly brought to life over the course of his career. 

As always, feel free to send in an Ask if there’s a certain post that you would like included in our BEST OF FMRF reblogs.

Where did the year go?? 

What a year ❤️!

Announcement From FMRF

In the past couple of days, we have received many Asks regarding the recent exchange between Rupert and our dear friend of the blog @aimeemullinsfanblog on Twitter.

Initially, we were all very concerned about our friend. We know Angela to be a very sweet and dedicated fan of both Rupert and Aimee. We wanted to show our support for her as the lovely human being that she is and recognize her countless hours of dedication to posting Rupert and Aimee content. 

Were we disappointed at first by Rupert’s response to Angela’s tweet? Yes, because initially, it felt unnecessarily harsh, especially since Rupert rarely reacts to posts from fans. 

But we learned something – Rupert, being a puny human like the rest of us, is going to disappoint us at times. Whether it’s because he doesn’t interact as much with his fandom as we would like, (although he certainly doesn’t owe it to any of us) or because he interacted with a fan in a way we thought was ungracious. 

And maybe we’ll disappoint him. Maybe we already have. We should all realize how difficult it must be to live in the public eye. To have your life — the best and worst of it — out there for everyone to see; for everyone to judge. 

And here’s something else – a lot of nuance and context can be lost in emojis and tweets. Social media is fraught with miscommunications and incorrect assumptions. We think Angela got it right. She understood and accepted what Rupert was trying to convey to her. And this blog, as her friend, and as his devoted fans, should accept and respect that as well. 

So do we still love Rupert and his work? Fuck, yeah, and we won’t exacerbate things by posting and answering any Asks regarding this situation. This post serves as our response to this entire Twitter debacle that spiraled completely out of control and got unnecessarily nasty. 

Thank you for following the blog, and thank you for understanding.

‘Strange Angel’ Review | Hollywood Reporter

‘Strange Angel’ Review | Hollywood Reporter:

findmyrupertfriend:

”… Parsons’ new neighbor Ernest (Rupert Friend), who moves in with a bleating goat, a creepy lack of personal boundaries and an assortment of slogans like “Do what thou wilt,” which prove enticing for Jack, no fan of establishment constraints.”

And here is some great praise for what Rupert adds to the show as Ernest Donovan:

There’s a slight drag that sets in when Jack and Susan are pondering money woes and delayed dreams — supporting performances by Hope Davis as Jack’s eccentric, formerly wealth mother and Michael Gaston as Susan’s stern stepfather help — but dissipates when Ernest shows up. Friend, who spent so long being questionably served as the eternally endangered Quinn on Homeland (OMG YES FINALLY SOMEONE CALLS IT LIKE IT IS), gives a performance of amusing weirdness and a creepy-crawly intensity that may be menace or just zealotry. Both Reynor and Heathcote, whose Susan has the feel of a guesswork-fabricated character, are more interesting with Friend than they are together. Friend gives Heathcote some taboo erotic sizzle and Reynor some crazed inspiration, keeping his co-stars’ performances from becoming too cold or too bland.”

🙌🏼🙌🏼 Loving that Rupert has an opportunity to continue playing diverse and intriguing characters. Rupert described Ernest quite well at ATX TV Festival: Ernest is a weirdo that sucks you in!

HOT DAMN! This review gives a great glimpse into what Rupert is bringing to Strange Angel! Love how descriptive it is 👍🏼👍🏼

“Friend gives Heathcote some taboo erotic sizzle…”

This sounds very promising!!!

I’m just wondering if everyone here at HYH is as excited for Strange Angel as we are over at FMRF.

But forrealz, would you believe me if I said we were? I mean, have any of you MET Sydney? (Of course you haven’t, if you had, you’d know what an absurd question this is.) 

findmyrupertfriend: THE KID (x) “My name is …

THE KID (x)

“My name is Kevin. I was born in South London. It was March 93, a Wednesday, and I decided to kill myself.”

The Kid begins with a voice-over of Kevin Lewis (Rupert Friend), as he is dumped out of the back of a van. Kevin is badly beaten about the face, and makes his way into (what was his childhood room) in an old, abandoned house. He drinks from a bottle of alcohol and proceeds to empty numerous pill bottles into his mouth.

The movie flashbacks to 1980 when Kevin is a small boy in his room, drawing on the wall. He sits on his lumpy mattress that is on the bare floor. He lives in a filthy house with his equally filthy parents (Gloria and Dennis), as well as multiple siblings. (Kevin’s mother is brilliantly portrayed by Natascha McElhone, an absolute beauty transformed into an ugly, bitter, and hateful woman.)

The picture painted of Kevin’s childhood is far from pretty. He is kept locked in his room, drawing on his wall, when he is not being beaten by his parents, dragged to the bar by his alcoholic father, or bullied at school. One particular beating Kevin suffers at the hands of his mother elicits the attention of a school nurse, who alerts social services.

Kevin is removed and put into foster care, where his difficulties as an abused child make a proper home placement a real challenge. Kevin’s social worker contacts David (Bernard Hill), a man who runs a children’s home of sorts. David reviews Kevin’s file and offers some insight.

David: “I don’t think Kevin is behaving badly because he’s out of control. I just don’t think anyone’s bothered to tell him how to behave in any other way…This young man has known nothing but hate and violence.”

Kevin flourishes under the care of the staff and learns to control and better express his anger in a healthy manner.  The staff throw Kevin a surprise birthday party, and he is genuinely happy. However, the happiness is short-lived. Kevin receives a new social worker who concludes that Kevin should return home. Kevin is crushed and runs away, but David quickly finds him. The scene of the children waving goodbye as Kevin is driven away from the only people who have shown him true love made me want to cry. Of course, nothing changes once Kevin returns home. The abuse continues.

This is such a wonderful movie! Rupert steals my heart again with his amazing performance.

A Case for the White Shirt of Hotness: I know what you guys are thinking. First, “Sara, this is what you want to remember about Peter Quinn?!” To that I’ll say, there are so many things to love about Quinn, and it was hard to choose. On a day meant to celebrate his character, and after a year that was so dark in many respects, I wanted to talk about something that made me happy–that made me smile. This is when he first started to become Carrie’s partner. And that’s how I’ll always remember him. 

Second, “the navy shirt is where it’s at.” Let me tell you why the white shirt should take over. First, look at that pose! He is bringing sassy, “one hand on the hip” realness. Second, it shows all the wrinkles better. Quinn wouldn’t be Quinn without those endearing shirt wrinkles. Third, he left the top few buttons undone. Just enough skin. Y’all get what I’m saying? –Sara (@carriemathison)

I absolutely love this post! So great, Sara! 🙌🏻 But I will always be a navy shirt of hotness girl myself! 🤣🔥👨🏻

When I first knew Quinn fell for Carrie: This scene in S3E5 “The Yoga Play” is basically Quinn telling Carrie he loves her. His love and adoration are written all over his face. It’s fully present in his voice. This is when I knew Quinn loved Carrie and would eventually die for her.

Beautiful and meaningful choice. And the shirt as bonus.

↳ The later seasons’ drama sometimes makes me forget how sassy, sarcastic and even funny Quinn could be. So this is what I’d like to remember today as well. –Frangi (@frangipaniflower001)

Lucky me, I was allowed to post two sets, one for each blog.
