I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the cast that plays together, stays together. Such is the case with author Sylvain Reynard and the cast of the Passionflix adaptation of Gabriel’s Rapture. When SR posted pictures from the upcoming movie and pondered whether an author can spoil their own movie, Giulio Berruti was quick to defend his “Spoilerman” title while James Andrew Fraser proclaimed a possible win for Team Paul.
SR posted two pictures of Berruti as Professor Gabriel Emerson on Instagram, posing a very important question: “Is it a spoiler if I’m the one that’s sharing? Discuss.”
Fans jumped in immediately, assuring the beloved author that one cannot spoil one’s own work. It was Berruti who chimed in to stake his claim. “There is only ONE spoiler man on this planet and that is ME!” he wrote in his comment. Berruti is referring to his tendency to “spoil” scenes from the movie by posting behind the scenes pictures, keeping Passionflix Director of Marketing & PR Ali Straub Whitaker on her toes.
Whitaker also jumped into the conversation, adding the hashtag #SpoilerPerson to describe SR’s mischievous social media escapades.
Not surprisingly, it was James Andrew Fraser, the actor who plays Paul Norris in the films, who had the most diplomatic response. “Creators can share as much or as little of their art as they want,” he wrote in his comment. “On another note, this looks good for #TeamPaul.”
As fans know, Fraser is referring to the story in Gabriel’s Rapture that finds Julia (Melanie Zanetti) seeking comfort from Paul while she’s estranged from Gabriel. (Fans know how this plays out, of course, but we have to give props to Fraser as he channels Paul’s unwavering optimism!)
With the gauntlet thrown, it looks like a spoiler battle is brewing:
Over on Instagram, GB has thrown down the gauntlet as the real #Spoilerman. We'll see …. 😉

Of course, there’s no bad blood in this battle and it’s all in fun. It’s also a very clear indicator that the team of people behind Gabriel’s Inferno and Gabriel’s Rapture are incredibly close both on and off screen.
The Gabriel’s Inferno trilogy released during 2020 and quickly became a balm for a global community of fans who were struggling in a time that was fraught with uncertainty. All three movies arrived during the pandemic and the cast wasn’t able to see each other in person to celebrate the arrival of the films. Whenever they saw each other during Zoom interviews it was a chance for them to catch up, and it was also a chance for fans to see just how close the cast was in real life.
Passionflix is known for inspiring close working and personal relationships between its cast members. The cast of This Man is currently filming in the UK and they’re already having loads of fun on social media. Given that bringing romance books to life on screen is no small feat, it makes sense that the actors enjoy close relationships on and off screen.
The third installment of Gabriel’s Rapture is set to arrive on Passionflix on August 12, 2022. All three movies of the Gabriel’s Inferno trilogy and the first two movies of the Gabriel’s Rapture trilogy are available to watch on Passionflix now.
