July 12th, 2011, 5:48am– Only a few hours ago, Rupert Grint graced the red carpet at the US Premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Rupert was once more the first cast member to arrive and the last to leave, spending a huge amount of time with the fans for autographs, pictures and hugs; and giving interviews.
By the time he had reached us, he was drenched in sweat due to the heat, but happy to answer questions and give us a sample of his Scouse accent, which we will get to enjoy in Comrade, surprising us by saying the F word to do so. Our own pictures and videos will be up soon enough.
In the meantime, you can check out this ‘American Talk 2′ clip:
You can also find the first images from the premiere in our Gallery.
UPDATE: A lot of new HQ pictures are finding their way into our gallery at the moment – take a look here!
Also, our Press Archive is filling up with great tales from around the world. Make sure to keep an eye on all the new articles
But that’s not all. These days quotes seem to be flying around mentioning Rupert left and right – and of course, we could not be happier about this. Berliner Morgenpost did an interview with Emma Watson, where she mentioned Rupert:
Journalist: … But in return, you three have the chance to stand on a bridge of Hogwarts after all the battles are over and to be caught by the camera in a way that one cannot help getting goose bumps.
Emma: You know what? Rupert and I were allowed to see the film at several screenings in advance. When we talked some days ago we realized that both of us cried at this very point.
Journalist: Rupert and crying?
Emma: Yes, he said, of course, that he got “wet eyes”. Utter nonsense, he cried. Just like me. That was the moment when we knew it’s over now.
Do I get an “aaaaww”?
Thank you to Melina for doing the translation from German to English.
UPDATE2: We also have three pics of Rupert at the afterparty. You’ll find them in our gallery here.
