Peter Quinn. In memoriam

It’s been over a week now. I’m still not in the mood to do this, but on the other hand, life goes on, and the blog too … So, as I did with the previous four seasons, I’m going to make a brief summary of this last season, Quinn’s last breath. Homeland tends to surprise us,…

Rupert Friend as Kevin Lewis: The Kid

Friend is tall, slim as a sheet of paper and so ethereally beautiful that he looks unlikely to survive a strong wind. So he might seem an odd choice, but he brings an interesting spin to the role, investing it with quiet dignity, and a “first day on earth” sense of bewilderment that underscores the…

Quinn’s memories: Homeland Season 5

When I watched this And this… I never, repeat, never, imagined that the season 5 of Homeland would end this way. Memories of this season: difficult to say they were good. His speech talking about Syria, his interpretation after the shooting, and also with the whole issue of the sarin gas… Rupert was simply extraordinary in all…

Quinn’s memories: Homeland Season 4

Time to take a look at Rupert’s work during the season 4 of Homeland, to me, the best season so far. The season in which we have enjoyed more Quinn, where we saw more facets of his character. A season in which Quinn suffered for different reasons (althought that wasn’t new, but it looked different),…

Quinn’s memories: Homeland Season 3

Quinn’s internal struggle. I think starting in season 3 and until now, Rupert’s character has faced episode after episode to his own internal struggle. Season 3 was just the beginning, when he murders a child, and begins to rethink his life and his profession. He was alone in his fight. Carrie had her own problems. And that just seemed to make…

Quinn’s memories: Homeland Season 2

Now that the transcripts of the old interviews are finished, I want to look back to remember the work of Rupert in Homeland. Starting with the season 2 of course. “New car smell” (2.04) was the first episode where we saw Rupert, playing Peter Quinn, a CIA analyst who comes to the show for a brief role, and that,…

Rupert Friend as Chéri: Chéri

I do not have a concern to make the character [Cheri] likable. I have a concern to play him truthfully. I believe that if you can discover something of the truth of a person, then you will start to understand, and to understand is to move towards, if not like, then at least an empathy…

Rupert Friend as Mr. Wickham: Pride & Prejudice

Blesses with such happy manners he (Mr. Wickham) is sure of making friends. Wether he is capable if retaining them is less certain. Mr. Darcy Pride & Prejudice is a 2005 British romantic drama directed by Joe Wright and based on Jane Austen’s novel of the same name, published in 1813. The film depicts five…
