Nikhil Taneja recently interviewed Rupert for The Sunday Guardian. He talked about playing ruthless CIA assassin Peter Quinn in the TV series “Homeland” and more. You can read the unedited version of the interview, posted on Taneja’s website, below:

Homeland is one of the most addictive shows on television and even with its ups and downs, it never fails to make for a compelling watch. While I’ve always been a fan of the fantastic work that Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin do, my biggest reason to watch the show over the last season has been Rupert Friend, who plays Peter Quinn in such a raw, gritty, unflinching yet impossibly humane manner that when Homeland sometimes gets campy, it gives the show a very solid grounding in reality.

I’ve also seen Rupert Friend in a bunch of movies over the years, and he’s pretty much been the very best thing about them. From The Young Victoria to The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas to the recent Starred Up, Rupert’s played all sorts of roles from tragic to terrible to tender, and he’s really kicked ass in all of them. I’ve also seen his brilliant short film, Steve, which stars Colin Firth, Keira Knightley and Tom Mison, and it just speaks volumes about how he thinks and what sort of a fascinating mind he has. (Watch Steve on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9z8Ckulc0Qk)

So I was quite excited about getting to speak with him. Also, given that he’s going to star in Agent 47 next, and is perhaps one of the most talked about young actors in Hollywood, I was really looking forward to the interview… until I began my research by reading up on his old interviews. And then I got pretty intimidated. Because Rupert’s earlier interviews portray him to be an actor who’s not at all fond of interviews, is distinctly uncomfortable and agitated at questions he doesn’t like, and may even pull up the journalist if they don’t have a background on him. Luckily, I had already seen some of his stuff, and I’m pretty diligent when it comes to research… but I became even more cautious before the interview, and to be honest, just a wee bit nervous.

Because Rupert doesn't seem to be comfortable whenever the paparazzi are following him, I have decided not to post any of the photos they take on this website. This means you will not find any photos of him out and about in our gallery, nor any photos that I feel might be too personal to be shared. I respect Rupert's privacy, and I hope you do too.
On set and behind the scenes photos of Rupert can be found in our photo gallery because they are related to his work.
