Weaving tales of wild times from the 1960s to the present, including the ten-year quest to film Oscar Wilde’s last days, Rupert Everett joins us for a soulful reflection on his life to date.
From Shakespeare in Love to My Best Friend’s Wedding, Rupert Everett has left an indelible mark on British culture as one of best-loved actors.
In this livestreamed conversation with Matthew Stadlen, he will share extraordinary stories from his life and career, remembering freak encounters and lost friends. He will take us from his expulsion from drama school in ‘70s London to the glamour of 90’s Paris, his earliest childhood memories of Oscar Wilde’s The Happy Prince to his completion, many decades later, of his triumphant film of the same name.
On the eve of the launch of his third autobiography, To The End of the World, don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear an honest, thought-provoking reflection on the ‘snakes and ladders’ of filmmaking from one of our most widely-renowned and formidable cinematic talents.
Rupert Everett first appeared on stage in 1981 as Guy Bennett in the West End production of Julian Mitchell’s play Another Country, a role which he repeated in the 1984 film version which saw him nominated for a BAFTA as Best Newcomer. Subsequent nominations include a BAFTA and Golden Globe for My Best Friend’s Wedding.
