Rhys Ifans: I Think Rupert Grint Owed About 80 Pounds!

March 8th, 2011, 8:39pm–In a new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 behind-the-scenes video released from the Harry Potter Quest site Emma Watson and Rhys Ifans talks about corpsing on set and that how, this time, it was Emma who was having the issues! The actors received red cards for each time they messed up a scene by laughing and would owe five pounds. Rhys says that it was Rupert Grint who ended up owing about 80 pounds. We wonder, what did it get up to by the end of the entire shoot? Deathly Hallows took over a year to film and the Xeno scenes were only done for a few weeks! I’m sure Rupert owed more by then! You can view the video below and don’t forget to check out our own YouTube channel as we have many interviews from this years BAFTAs along with some Half-Blood Prince scenes we’ve just added!

We also have some more gallery updates. This time a few pictures from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Thunderpants. The Sorcerer’s Stone picture is a studio shot that you can view here and the Thunderpants pictures are stills from the movie which you can view here.

Thanks to SnitchSeeker for the tip!

Well I hope for him they started to the the red card later than sooner. At this rate Rupert paid the movies.

LOL I know. Good think 80 pounds isn’t much to him at this point. :P Let’s just hope his other film directors don’t implement this rule! ;)

I wonder if he meant in the same time they were talking about Emma, in the three days when they filmed with Rhys. So 80 would be huge. lol Who wanted to reach out and stroke his hair when they did the behind shot of him?

So funny, I want so bad to see a video about Rupert gigling. He would be good if they done a video with all the bloopers during all the years for the dvd of harry potter pt 2.

The video was very cute. I seem to recalled that apperently Rupert owened like 200 or something and that it was given to a charity. I really do think I read something like that but where it was I don’t know. And if I made it up, Sorry :)

@talley: I also wanted to stroke his hair, so awesome and red :)

And you couldn’t do anything against the laughing attacks?
Rupert: The crew tried. Whenever I started to laugh, I got a yellow card and had to pay two Euros, and when I got a red one, five. In the end 230 Euro accumulated, and spent on a good cause.

Giggly-Grint indeed. LoL I think the 80 pounds must have been just for the three days, right? For the whole movie it has to be more. Rupert is (in-)famous for his corpsing. :D
