April 23rd, 2010, 1:43 pm–In a new interview with OK! Magazine Rupert Grint discusses his latest film Cherrybomb, the ending of Harry Potter and his desire to continue on as an actor. He also mentions his film Wild Target and the latest project he is attached to “Eddie The Eagle Edwards” a true story based on a Michael Edwards who was the first competitor to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping and was the British ski jumping record holder.
What’s happening next in your life?
A few things, I’ve got a film called Wild Target [Rupert plays an assassin’s apprentice] coming out next month. It was good fun playing with the guns and stuff.
And you’re going to play Eddie the Eagle [British ski-jumping record holder]…can you even ski?
I’ve never skied in my life so it’s going to be interesting. That will be quite fun I think, it’ll be cool.
Did you find it difficult breaking out of your role as Ron Weasley?
I didn’t think about it, Cherrybomb came up quickly, in the space of a week actually, I met the directors and read the script and then was on a flight to Belfast. But yeah, it’s kind of what attracted me to it. It’s a real different kind of character, he’s a bit more complicated and I suppose it was a more ‘adult’ role. I don’t think I was ever nervous about that because as I get older I’ll be doing more grown-up things.
Would you ever quit acting and go to university like Emma Watson?
It’s always going to be an option but I’ll avoid it if I can. I want to keep on acting.
We hear you have an ice cream van, if you were going to impress a girl with an ice cream from your van, what would the topping be?
Hmm, I don’t really have anything in the van at the moment, but probably flake, the classic flake.
Which topping would you say represents you best?
Hundreds and thousands, rainbow.
