BIOGRAPHY OF RUPERT EVERETT
Rupert James Hector Everett, known simply as Rupert Everett is born the May 29, 1959 in the county of Norfolk, England, from a family descended by maternal line from the Scottish major Hector Lachlan Stewart MacLean and the barons Vyvyan of Trelowarren and von Schmiedern. From an early age, Everett was educated at the Catholic Farleigh School in Hampshire and later by Benedictine monks at Ampleforth College in Yorkshire, but at sixteen he left school to move to London and pursue an acting career at Central School of Speech and Drama. Here his rebellious character leads him to often clash with teachers, until he is expelled; moreover, in recent years, although she came from an economically well-off family, she prostituted herself for both money and drugs. After the London interlude, he arrives in Scotland, where he works at Citizens Theater in Glasgow and finally he can start his career.
Success came in 1984, when, after making his debut in the short film awarded to the Oscars A Shocking Accident (1982), he becomes the protagonist together with Colin Firth of Another Country – The choice, where he plays a gay student in 1980s Russia. The following year is in Dancing with a stranger (1985), bio-pic of Ruth Ellis, the last woman sentenced to the death penalty in Britain before her abolition, in which the actor plays the victim, Ellis’ husband. In his brilliantly started career, in which some Italian productions such as Chronicle of a death foretold (1987) by Francesco Rosi, it breaks down the shadow of the flop with Hearts of Fire (1987), dramatic musical with Bob Dylan, but Everett does not collapse and at the same time also begins to walk the path of music, composing pop songs.
Films as a protagonist follow, in which he plays alongside Ugo Tognazzi, Helen Mirren, Christopher Walken and with the arrival of the nineties, the actor also reinvents himself as a writer, publishing his first novel, “Hello, Darling, Are You Working“, with which he declares his homosexuality. Although a revelation of this magnitude at the time could crush an interpreter of his stature, fortunately Rupert Everett’s career does not suffer any blows, indeed the English actor takes part in this decade in great works, such as Ready-to-wear (1994) of Robert Altman, My best friend’s Wedding (1997), with which he was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, and Shakespeare in Love (1998) of John Madden.
1999 sees him engaged in cinema on three fronts: he is the charming dandy Lord Arthur Goring in An ideal husband, King Oberon in Shakespearean A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the evil tycoon Sanford Scolex aka Doctor Claw in Inspector Gadget. The 2000s opened with the flop Do you know what’s new? (2000), comedy-drama with Madonna, but Everett does not give up even this time and the following year is in the cinema, directed by Carlo Vanzina, as the indebted nobleman Lord Nick Brett in the play South Kensington (2001). In 2002 he found Colin Firth on the set of The importance of being Ernest, while it happens to be Charles I in Kill the king (2003) of Mike Barker and the direct successor Charles II in Stage of Beauty of Richard Eyre, only a year later. Play the eccentric role of Miss Camilla Fritton, director of the extravagant college St. Trinian’s (2007) – also in the sequel St. Trinian’s 2 – The legend of the secret treasure (2009) – joined again on the set by his friend Firth in both films. Another singular character played by the actor in recent years is Lord Edmund St. John-Smythe, a sui generis inventor to whom in Hysteria (2011) together with physician Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy) the ideation of an electrical stimulator is given.
After several TV appearances, including an episode of the first season of Black Mirror (2011), joins the cast of the third season of The Musketeers (2014) as the Marquis de Feron. In 2016 he plays the royal role of another ruler, those of George VI in the 1945 London of A Night with the Queen (2016), while in 2018 he directs his first direction, The Happy Prince – Oscar Wilde’s last portrait, of which he is also the protagonist.
