August 14th, 2010, 10:05pm –In the latest issue of “Young Performer” magazine Rupert Grint not only graces the cover but gives an exclusive interview in which he answers questions about his career and his latest film Wild Target! Although the interview took place just before Harry Potter wrapped you will still find some new tidbits about Harry Potter, Eddie the Eagle and Wild Target. The preview of the cover and interview are not too big so we took time to type up the interview portion for you. We’ll hopefully get a bigger scan soon but if you reach it before us then send on over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Tell us about your character Tony.
He has a sheltered city life. He’s a mystery and doesn’t know about the countryside, but I relate to him because we’re both laid-back. You don’t know where he’s coming from and he’s in a world of his own.
Q: Did you have firearms training?
A: Yeah. I mean, I was only firing blanks on screen, but I went to a shooting range where I fired real live ammunition, which was scary and intimidating because it’s so loud and powerful. But it was fun.
Q: Did you get injured doing those pratfalls?
A: No, but the cat in Wild Target ripped me apart! It was spiteful and we didn’t get on at all. It mellowed throughout the shoot, but I don’t want to meet it again.
Q: Tell us about your sabre fight scene.
A: I had a stunt guy teach me genuine Samurai moves, but I had to practise with a giant wrapping-paper roll. I wasn’t allowed a proper sword of sabre.
Thank you Laura!
