  Rufians, the newish news starts here...   I hope to fill in the history gap (having a lot of the info, only lacking 48 hours in the day and no need to ever sleep) one of these days!

MASSIVE thanks to the Rufus Sewell Message Board, a.k.a. The Rooftop, purveyors of the latest news!

♦ Appearances (i.e. silence) to the contrary, I am not dead, nor, most certainly, is Rufus. In a couple of weeks I will finally be able to update this site, which is basically an archive rather than a news site. See the Rooftop for up-to-date news!

But there actually is NEWS: Rufus will return to the stage! You can read about it here and get dates and purchase tickets here.

Till catch-up time in a couple of weeks!
(3 October, thanks Nell, Rooftop)

♦ Greetings, after a longer than intended gap! Rufus has been been filming Victoria and has perhaps started on Season 2 of The Man in the High Castle. There hasn't been much news, but there have been a cartload of articles - and here they are:

♦ Happy New Year Rufians! The Man in the High Castle has come and gone (not really, you can watch it on Amazon Prime). The good news is that it has been renewed for a second season, and, given Rufus's role and developments in the last couple of episodes, it looks like we will get to admire his talents quite a bit more.

Rufus has - happily - not escaped the attention of the Critics Choice Awards folk and he has been nominated as Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Fingers crossed!

There have been a ton of articles, including a couple of nice interviews. Read them here: Amazon Prime TV Review: The Man in the High Castle (Episodes 1 and 2) - 'The Man In the High Castle' Is Chilling Alterna-history - 'The Man in the High Castle' Will Make You Sympathise With Nazis, Says Alexa Davalos - TV Review: ‘The Man in the High Castle’ - 'The Man in the High Castle’s' Chilling Alternate Reality - 'The Man In The High Castle': Rufus Sewell Tells HuffPostUK Why Philip Dick's Sci-Fi Novel Is As Relevant, And Painful, As Ever - The Man in the High Castle: Season 1 Review - ‘The Man in the High Castle’ Becomes Amazon’s Most-Streamed Original Series and Interview: Rufus Sewell Talks 'The Man in the High Castle'.

More will be coming!

♦  Despite the silence I am not dead (just overworked and under-brained). So, sign of life: Amazon had a preview weekend for The Man in the High Castle (for certain countries, not including Canada where the series was filmed, cough cough). Read about it here. Also, there have been a series of posters featuring Himself... see them here.

And new good news... Rufus will be in another television series, playing Lord Melbourne, early advisor to Queen Victoria. Read about it here, here and here. Woo hoo!

That's it for now... more soon, hopefully.
(28 October, thanks Rooftop, Gill, Nell, PGG, Rueful)

♦  A quickie: The Man in the High Castle was present at Comic-Con 2015 in San Diego, 9-11 July 2015. You can see photos here and read a couple of articles here and here.

That's it for now - stay tuned!
(20 July, thanks Rooftop, GE2, Adina, Nell, PGG)

♦  Ruf-fans! I'm not dead, just over-worked and running behind the train... thankfully Rufus is still filming The Man in the High Castle in Vancouver, so there is no real new news - but there are more pbotos from the set (taken around the time of the ones we have already seen).

The one piece of real news is that Amazon will screen the first two episodes of The Man in the High Castle at ComicCon in San Diego and Entertainment Weekly will live-stream the event on their website. You can read about this here.

I'll keep you posted!

♦  Hello Rufians! Closer has closed (and very wonderful it was, having had the good fortune to see it) and Rufus is now filming The Man in the High Castle in Vancouver.

You can see photos of some of the filming here. There are also a bunch of articles, a few from before the filming and one from the other day : one, two, three, four and five.

All this is gathered on a page, which I assume will grow with time.

More soon I hope!
(25 April, thanks Rooftop, Nell, GE2, Rai, LTMRS, Rueful)

♦  Just a few more articles: one, two and three.

The other news (article coming soon) is that Amazon has green-lighted The Man in the High Castle so we will have a television series with Rufus! Well, in countries that allow on-demand streaming television without needing endless committee studies in order not to upset the existing monopoly (you know who you are Canada - where, ironically, this series will be filmed).

Till soon, I hope!
(4 March, thanks Rooftop, GE2, Nell)

♦  Very quick again - the Closer reviews are coming in. Just three up here for now, more to come, Read them here : one, two and three.

For lovely photos of the opening night party visit the Rooftop here!

More soon!
(24 February, thanks Rooftop, GE2, Adina)

♦  Very quick - the first public performance of Closer was this evening! Just to get started, a short article and rehearsal photos. Loooooooking gooooood! And undoubtedly acting even better!

More soon, I hope!
(12 February, thanks Rooftop, Adina)

♦  Happy New Year Rufians! Something nice to start the year - you can watch the pilot of The Man in the High Castle for free on Amazon (you need an account but that is free to get, as I am sure everyone knows). This is the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RSI6NKS/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_xGxUub0FA2WGP. If it doesn't work you may need to experiment a bit.

You can also read a first review of the production.

And the last bit for today: National Geographic has released a behind-the-scenes video for Killing Jesus. You can read an article and see the video (with a glimpse of Rufus at minute 2.22 [thanks Nell]) here.

We have a lot of Rufus to look forward to this year!
