Yey! :) Rupert won the London Newcomer of the year award and it kind of made my evening! :) Congratulations!
I know he'll probably be in lots of plays in the next few years but I used my window of opportunity to see him in this first one live and to me, that makes it really memorable. I most likely won't ever see him live again, living in fucking Mordor where I do, but I really wanted him to win this one where I witness what an excellent actor he was - and he did! :D
I know being in Harry Potter probably made this award happen for him - but that doesn't make him any less worthy of receiving it, mind you! Yeah, I'm kind of the mother hen here, all protective of "my babies". ;)
So yey again! Happy and proud of him! And of myself, to getting all my resources together (financial and otherwise) and see him when I could!
Plus, Potter, erm Daniel was there as well, and I believe he also walked out with quite an award himself. The reunion photos look quite lovely!
I'm just... kind of made happy by this after an exhausting day, so yeah - shoot me. I know it's adolescent and stupid, but I can't care rat's arse if it is. I was really rooting for it (of course I voted and I probably wouldn't have unless I saw him live) - and I guess I was not the only one!

Hih, a friend sent me this today:

It was fun to read and try to see who you resemble. I'm definitely a Weasley, possibly Ron, but not quite on the money. I've got a lot of thinking processes going underneath and I'm loyal to a fault.

Besides the news that J.K. Rowling will be involved in the film series "Fantastic beasts and where to find them" as a script writer, this made my day at the boring International Trade Fair, counselling various lunatics, much more bearable. Yuppee! I love spin-offs (maybe that doesn't really fit the definition, but it's definitely set in the same realm), I hope they can make it good.
And Evanna Lynch's response on Twitter was just heart-warming - that girl's a Potterhead just like the rest of us. I don't follow all the HP actors on Twitter nor do I intend to, but her enthousiasm had me click that "follow" button (and BTW, I hate the word "follow" - it implies submission and stalking, all in one word, but I can't seem to find a substitute in my head for it either :)).
Here's to no goodbyes! :)
