April 15th, 2010, 7:46pm–The Independent has a new interview with Rupert Grint who is currently promoting Cherrybomb. Here he once again talks about life after Potter – he’s definitely ready for it to end! We also get some new tidbits including his family life in which he talks about how close they are, how they travel all around the world with him, and how his father still deals in F1 merchandise!
Rupert also discusses his various movie roles including Cherrybomb and how doing a kissing scene with Harry Potter co-star Jessie Cave was quite different from his scenes with Cherrybomb co-star Kimberley Nixon. He also talks a little about Wild Target and how he tends to be a lot more like Tony then he does Malachy. He also discusses more on Eddie the Eagle including how his father used to chat to him about Eddie and how famous he was for Britain in 1988! Seems like Rupert’s desire to play this role comes from his father’s stories!
We even get to hear, thankfully, that Rupert didn’t get too much teasing about his red hair while in school!
