July 9, 2009, 3:58 PM–As promised, here comes the second batch of our exclusive clips from the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which took place at Leicester Square, London two days ago. I had the opportunity to interview Rupert Grint‘s lovely co-stars Jessie Cave, Matthew Lewis, James Phelps and Oliver Phelps. Of course, I asked them Rupert and Ron related questions (while my colleague from Mugglenet.com asked them other stuff). For your convenience, I’ve decided to upload them to our Youtube channel first, and I will have the downloadable versions ready soon. Matt Lewis calls the poisoning scene in HBP his absolute favourite, and says that Rupert is in top form, at his comedy best! As for Jessie… well, you’ll see!
Also, Rupert, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have been interviewed by UK’s T4 host Miquita Oliver. The interviews will air on Sunday, July 12 at 8:55am GMT. View the previews on Harry Potter’s Page here, and you’ll be surprised to hear to whom Rupert would give the love potion!
And keep checking ICM Twitter page for all the latest updates from New York HBP red carpet!
UPDATE: Youtube is such a treasury of goodies. Watch this London premiere report by Screenrush: at around 4:50 Rupert says kissing Jessie was better than kissing Emma! And thanks to Amy with MSN for informing us about the exclusive new HBP clip — watch it on Oclumencia’s youtube channel here (you’ll catch a glimpse of Ron at the very beginning).
UPDATE 2: If you want to hear Emma Watson saying that Rupert Grint is gorgeous, go here! And thanks to Andie with Moviefone for letting us know about this poll, and they also have a fun character guide. Let’s show some love for Ron!
UPDATE 3: We keep adding great HQ pics to our gallery so keep checking — some of the latest pics are to die for! (Keyword: eyelashes!)
UPDATE 4: David Yates has just revealed to The Leaky Cauldron that filming the “Ron Hermione Kiss was tricky day”!
