Rupert Grint In Blag Magazine: New Press Release!

March 3, 2009, 12:30 PM–Rupert Grint, as we all know, will feature on the cover of the latest issue of BLAG Magazine, which hits the racks in a week! We have just received a new press release from Sally A Edwards, one of the founders/editors of BLAG Magazine. Although there are no new photos of Rupert’s photoshoot available yet, there is a great quote by Mr Grint — here’s what he had to say about the experience:

“I really enjoyed working with Sarah and Sally. They made it easy and I am excited to be featured in BLAG, as I think it’s a very cool magazine.”

And, according to Sally and Sarah, “The new volume still contains all exclusive down-to-earth, humorous, inspirational interviews and shoots.”

I will be uploading the press release to our gallery immediately, and in the meantime don’t forget to read about the upcoming issue here. UPDATE: You can now view the press release in our gallery here.

UPDATE: Thanks to Himera for scanning for us the March edition of Ellegirl (Russian edition), where Rupert is featured in their monthly priceless list. Translation heading on the rubric is “I want I want I want”, and under Rupert’s picture it says “Rupert Grint is Priceless.” We couldn’t agree more! You can view it in our gallery here.

Sally and Sarah are so sweet. Btw they’re identical twins, just like me and my sis. :)

I’m glad he had fun! I always wondered if this type of thing made him sort of uncomfortable.

March 3rd, 2009 at 1:16 PM

PS…

have you met Sally and Sarah or something Ivana?

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 1:19 PM

Sam, they’re just really great. They’ve been e-mailing us, and just being really forthcoming and such. :)

I’m also glad Rupert had fun! When he’s comfortable, everything is better! *squee*

Jo
March 3rd, 2009 at 1:19 PM

OH really, I didnt know that. How cool. Seriously what are we gonna do with ourselves when we get these pictures.

I don’t think Rupert is uncomfortable doing shoots just because he isn’t big on interviews. He’s always seemed to enjoy himself with these sort of things. :)

Ivana
March 3rd, 2009 at 1:23 PM

Oh Sam I haven’t met them, but I’ve read a lot about them, and I’ve known their work.

Himera
March 3rd, 2009 at 1:24 PM

don’t know where to post it, so I do it here. I don’t know about american Elle girl magazine, but in russian edition there is a page where they publish picture of some famous guy under the inscription PRICELESS. Guess who the Priceless in this month’s issue? ;) Yes, you’re right! it’s our Rupert!)))

Jo
March 3rd, 2009 at 1:25 PM

Himera really? Is there a picture?

Ivana
March 3rd, 2009 at 1:28 PM

Oh and Himera PM me, I’ll be in charge of sending you the BLAG magazine. :)

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 1:28 PM

Can anyone scan that Russian version for us? :)

Himera
March 3rd, 2009 at 1:31 PM

Jo, unfortunately I don’t have scan yet. There is a small picture from London OOTp premiere.
Oh, and thank you, Ivana, but I one very kind girl agreed help me with her credit card! She’ll order magazine for me tomorrow!))

Neglo
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:04 PM

Oh I so wish we had a video of the shooting, how awesome wouldn’t that be?
Well, I can’t complain.

GO RUPERT!
GO BLAG!

Neglo
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:09 PM

LOL Ivana I didn’t even know they were twins until I saw a pic of them on their site.

It took a while for my dumb brain to kind of understand.
I was like……………… *slaps self* ……………….. oh..

DKG
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:14 PM

Sarah and Sally Edwards?
Well, i got it after when i read their names!

Oh, i can’t wait for this!

Ivana
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:21 PM

I’ve been telling my twin sis that we should start an enterprise together, for like ages now, but she expects me to organise everything and then just let her join in. On a second thought, it wouldn’t be such a good idea to work with her, because she’s such a lazy arse, I’d end up doing her job too.
We always joke that she was born younger because she was late for her own birth. :D

Neglo
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:24 PM

DKG, do you think I could pay attention to their surname when THE cover was on my face? He he ha ho.

I cant’ wait for the magazine to arrive! I will love it, feed it, put it under my pillow, write it a song………..

manda1
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:26 PM

guys we have 6 more days until the magazine is shipped out i’m so excited!!

DKG
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:31 PM

Awww i’m out of money!
So i will prob sell my dull stuff to get some money to get my BLAG!

I WILL HAVE IT.

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:32 PM

LOL Blag is like an addiction! We’ll sell our souls for it! :p

Neglo
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:42 PM

It IS our soul.

Lmao this whole BLAG thing reminds me of the spirit stick from the Bring It On films (no I don’t like them).

DKG
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:46 PM

HAHAHA The first movie ruled.
Then it went downhill and the sequels weren’t as funny.

Jayhost
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:48 PM

I’m so happy that I ordered one…. :)

evie
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:49 PM

How cute is that quote? I mean ‘cool’ hehehe, it can only be cool if Rupert is doing it! And really it does sound like a very cool mag, even if Rupert wasn’t on it – to bad it would be to expensive for me to get a perscription.

I liked the first Bring it On 0.o … is that wrong?

mollywobbles
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:50 PM

lol Spirit stick. I can’t wait until my copy comes! (Thanks you-know-who-you-are.) I wish I had a gif of “spirit fingers.”

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:50 PM

I don’t know why the term ‘spirit stick’ reminds me of ‘magic bone’ on Buffy. When they kept giggling over it. hehe Really, I don’t know… it just made think of it.

mollywobbles
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:50 PM

double post, sorry.

Evie, I like the first one too. It’s not wrong, it’s just right. lol

talley
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:52 PM

LOL at the Buffy reference. I so miss that show. Rupert would’ve been a great Xander like character.

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 2:55 PM

Oh, Evie, I liked the first one too. :)

Talley, definitely! They’ve already made Ron seem like the Xander character of Harry Potter… so it works. And I’ve always thought of Ron as the heart of the trio just like Xander was to his. :D

mollywobbles
March 3rd, 2009 at 3:17 PM

Aww, Xander. I love him. My favorite Xander moment and it sums him up perfectly:

“Seven years, Dawn. Working with the Slayer. Seeing my friends get more and more powerful… a witch. A demon. Hell, I could fit Oz in my shaving kit, but come a full moon, he had a wolfy mojo not to be messed with. Powerful, all of them. And I’m the guy who fixes the windows”

“They’ll never know how tough it is, Dawnie, to be the one who isn’t Chosen, to live so near the spotlight and never step in it. But I know. I see more than anybody realizes because nobody’s watching me. I saw you last night. I see you working here today. You’re not special. You’re extraordinary.”

^ I can’t believe I can’t find that on YT. :(

March 3rd, 2009 at 3:50 PM

As Rupert would say – this is COOL! :D 9th cant come any sooner….

manda1
March 3rd, 2009 at 4:33 PM

no it cant come any sooner im ready for march 10th to come so my magazines can be shipped off! yay!

talley
March 3rd, 2009 at 4:34 PM

Oh my I wish that was on Youtube or somewhere. And I’m glad you saw my comparison as a postive because I did love Xander and saw him as the heart of that group as well. I did miss Oz though.

Back to Rupert, I wonder if having a postive experience on the photoshoot will encourage him to do more as they come? I hope so.

manda1
March 3rd, 2009 at 4:54 PM

I hope so to that he will do more photoshoots, I will pass out once I see the 20 pics I’m dying to see them

Verônica
March 3rd, 2009 at 5:30 PM

One question: The magazine has two covers or there are two different magazines,being one for films and one for music? Cause if Franz ferdinand and Rupert are on the same magazine,i gotta have it!!!!!!!

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 5:33 PM

I love Oz! He was the best. I still think the funniest moment from him was when he was on Angel and he’s all. “He’s pale. He’s paler than most people.” And he just kept at it. LOL

But yes, back to Rupert… I hope you’re right Talley. Although I do agree with Jo that he’s never had issues with photoshoots (I think it’s because in a way he’s acting, and he seems the most comfortable there.), but a great positive, fun experience can get him into wanting to do more. I really hope Rupert’s people realize that these type of things are important and get him out to do a few more. He’s got three movies to promote this year. :)

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 5:34 PM

Veronica, from what I’ve gathered, there are two, but each one will have both covers. What I mean is, if you order the Rupert cover, the back of it will have Franz Ferdinand (yay!!) and if you order the Franz cover, Rupert will be on the back. So if you’re a fan of both, you get the best of both worlds. :D I’m glad I’m a fan of Franz… I adore the bassist. He’s so adorable. :D

March 3rd, 2009 at 5:37 PM

It is great to see that Rupert will be on a cover of a magazine – all by himself. It’s about time he got top billing and top quality photos somewhere! This is so overdue and I hope the start of a great trend.

FYI, Ron Weasley fans may want to watch Smallville’s episode this week called “Legion.” It is a repeat. In it, there is a character that was created in the late 1950s called Lightning Lad who is very similar to Ron.

Unfortunately, it appears that Lightning Lad must have come down with a bad case of KLOVES in this episode as he comes across as the least together of the threesome superhero team that visits Clark Kent. In this threesome, besides LL, there is the leader (dark-haired guy who calls the shots) and a girl who is brilliant and mental (she has esp powers). In the comics, LL ends up married to her, but you would never know it from this episode that there was anything between them.

The actor who plays LL looks quite a bit like Rupert but he is not as good looking.

When the episode first was aired, it was funny to read the forums at the Smallville sites because they were all talking about how Ron Weasley was a Superman fanboy because he asks Clark for an autograph, in a manner worthy of Ron and his initial Viktor Krum adulation.

And yes, LL does have a powerful red-haired sister and he has issues with self-esteem. So watch and enjoy.

I don’t know they could be the same magazine like one side is movies and you flip it over and the other side is music like some magazines are

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 6:11 PM

I hate when writers ruin things like that! Take perfectly good characters and instead of making them better, they just make them worse.

Manda, yes. It’s going to be exactly like that… I think that’s awesome. Of course, mine will probably never face the other end for my than a few seconds when I first get it… it’s just neat. :)

manda1
March 3rd, 2009 at 6:26 PM

It is awesome! Imagine when we get the magazines our faces and Tao the end of this month you’ll get to see CB lucky you! :)

March 3rd, 2009 at 7:18 PM

You won’t believe!
I went to the book store I use to buy magazines, and you know everybody knows me there because I leave my pants there everytime I enter and find some of my fav Art magazines.

So I talked to a guy, “can you order a magazine for me in your imported distributor?”

“No, sorry, we can’t. We just sell what they use to have for us, but which one are you looking for?”
Then I told him and he and two other girls that worked there came and said “Oh we always have Blag! It’s a beauty and thick one! But I think it’s not a monthly one! If it came to us this month we’ll phone you! ”

Now, I’m praying that they’ll have it! :0
Dove, this doesn’t mean I don’t want the one you’ll buy to me. Let me see if they get me one first!
Well, at least, I have even more hopes to have it soon in my hands! :)

mollywobbles
March 3rd, 2009 at 7:25 PM

That’s awesome, Lilly!

TaoTao
March 3rd, 2009 at 8:19 PM

Oh, that’s great Lilly! I ordered my copy online because I was too afraid of not getting it. lol I know borders and b&n are suppose to, but… Well, when we finally know all the dates, I’ll be stalking both places!

evie
March 3rd, 2009 at 8:29 PM

Good for you Lilly! I forgot to stop by BnN today, aarrggg. I’ll try again tomorrow. In a way I’m so calm about this, like there is no way I wont get it. I guess NY spoils you that way, but really I’ve been let down on somethings, so I have no idea where this confidence is coming from. Just be ready for my ranting/jealous/screaming if I don’t get it! :)

manda1
March 3rd, 2009 at 9:10 PM

I ordered 3 copies I became determined to get alot of copies but I’m still going to look at the borders where I live just in case

Sorry. I teach U.S. History and in the past taught Texas History and Geography, so I’m not up on world history. Have you googled it? Today I had to find information on those who believe the Holocaust was a hoax. Yep. So called history revisionists declare that the genocide of the Jews was exaggerated and the “truth” is being kept hidden to perpetuate the plight of Jews. Sorry I couldn’t help Neglo.

Aww, that’s sweet. I always adored that pic of Rupert. Priceless indeed!
