We've seen the images and posters, now it's time to see Rupert in action in this video clip from Into the White! The clip focuses mostly on Rupert's character, Gunner Robert Smith, and a bonding moment with German officer Wolfgang Strunk (played by Stig Henrik Hoff). Skiing included! Visit THIS PAGE to watch the video or see below.
Accompanying the video is also an interview with Mr. Hoff where he talks about working with Rupert. It can be viewed below:
How was your fellow actor and star from the Harry Potter films on skis?
Well, he claimed he had an uncle that had put on skis once. And he had tried on modern skis the day before. But then it was just to go on and do it. He had no idea what he was doing. He fell and rolled down and stood up like a chicken. We laughed so hard that we cried. But Rupert gave his all and kept his humor, impressively enough. Of course, he was freezing in the end.
How was he to work with?
Completely super! So precise, so well prepared, a dream to work with. He probably benefited from the world's best film school growing up, "Harry Potter school." On top of having a natural star quality, he had unusually good colleagues, both to work with and hang out with during free time in filming periods.
But can you assume that skiing scared him?
No, not really. He told me that he could see himself coming back and trying skiing again under more civilized circumstances than war.
