July 8, 2009 at 4:59 PM–We are working like house elves here, bringing you all the latest Rupert Grint goodies! The Times Online has just released a great new interview with Rupert. He talks about Wild Target, Harry Potter, meeting Michelle Obama and many other things. Get ready for some awesomely revealing new quotes, and a severe bout of self-criticism!
“Being in Harry Potter is like living in a bubble, and it slightly hinders your independence. […] You have got a lot of people doing stuff for you. So I guess that doesn’t help.”
“I’ve noticed that in the early days I was just reading my lines. I wasn’t really acting. But over the years, and especially with the different directors we’ve had, you try to give more.”
(We disagree — Rupert, you were a brilliant kid actor!)
On the challenges of public socialising: “It’s always at the back of your mind: ‘You’ve got to behave! You can’t lose control! They’re just waiting for you to come out p***ed!’”
Read the rest here. Thanks Himera for the tip!
Also, we have just uploaded 18 amazing HQ candids of Rupert leaving his London hotel this morning! They’re awaiting you here. *off to add more*
Oh and I can’t remember if we’ve seen these clips already, so anyway… clicky.
UPDATE: I have just uploaded five great HQ pics from yesterday’s premiere, courtesy of Rex. (In the second pic you’ll see Rupert’s bro James as well.) Enjoy them here.
UPDATE 3: If you were wondering what Leicester Square looked like before the storm got us all drenched, take a look at some of our pre-premiere pics here.
