August 26th, 2010, 8:26 pm–It has been an amazing week for Rupert Grint fans as they had the opportunity to meet him in London for a special Q&A session to promote the DVD release of his indie film Cherrybomb! If you missed the news or haven’t checked out the updates head on over to our exclusive coverage page to catch up! Meanwhile staffers Anna and Karo are still on their adventure, so until they make it back with their full report we wanted to share with you some special reports straight from the fans!
First up is the lovely Malene and her sister Majbritt who met up with ICM for both events. She not only took hundreds of great photos but has also sent in her personal thoughts on the entire experience! Malene shares her initial feelings on meeting Rupert, her interactions with him and much more!
When it was my turn, I came towards Rupert, held out my hand to shake his and said hello. The first thing I did was give him his birthday present from me – I wanted to give him something very Danish, and I tried to explain to him that the only thing we Danes do good is alcohol. I had bought him three small bottles of an alcoholic drink called “Gammel Dansk” (ie. Old Danish). His response was: “I love that!” He then signed my Blag magazine (“To Malene, Love Rupert”… aaww). Tom Deacon took the picture of us, and then I decided to be brave – I asked if I could get a hug, and as always Rupert was a complete sweetheart and made my entire day, week, month, year and decade by giving me a hug.
Read Malene’s entire experience on ICM here! And a big thanks to Malene for sending us over hundreds of beautiful photos of Mr. Grint which we have just uploaded in our galleries here. The yummy cup-cakes we gave Rupert for his birthday can be seen directly here!
More reports on the way soon!
