I think Rupert could be a really wonderful, straight actor. You can always think of him as a comedian and I sometimes watch Rupert when he’s off camera and he’s just off to the side between takes, because he’s the quietest member of the cast and crew. There’s a real poetry about Rupert as a human being, as an actor. I think he could be really, really good. But it’s interesting, the audience is so programmed to just find him funny all the time. He’s a funny guy, isn’t he, so it’s great for him to do some serious stuff.”  David Yates [x]
