July 8, 2009 at 6:54 PM–Many thanks to Warner Brothers’ publicist Cynthia for sending us the download links for footage from the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Apart from Rupert Grint, the clip features his co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, as well as the author J.K. Rowling. We don’t really have the time now to trim the clip to Rupert bits only, but we hope you won’t mind watching the entire thing!
Rolling Stone has posted a new (p)review of Half-Blood Prince, and here’s what they say:
As played with open-faced exuberance by Rupert Grint, the ginger-haired Ron is Harry’s best friend and true confidant. He’s not as expert in wizardry or Quidditch as Harry, which causes some resentment and makes Ron raucous comic relief. The love potion he takes in Half-Blood Prince brings Ron’s immature likability to the fore.
UPDATE: IESB has this new video interview with Rupert Grint where he talks about his role in Half-Blood Prince. The site also has plenty of behind the scenes footage and we can see a lot of Ron in the clips and clearly hear the dialogues! Watch them over here!
UPDATE 2: TLC had the chance to visit Half-Blood Prince set last year in February and they got to interview Rupert and co-stars. They now have the audio of it over here. The interview is basically the same as the one of Coming Soon that we posted earlier but it doesn’t bother to hear that lovely voice. Enjoy!
