Rupert Grint wins BBC Teen Awards as Best British Actor!

October 9th, 2011, 10:03AM– As recently mentioned, Rupert Grint is currently attending this years BBC Teen Awards at Wembley. Rupert himself was nominated as best actor for his performance as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and he just won. Rupert couldn’t believe it:

“I’m just the ginger one in the background, this shouldnโ€™t be happening!”

Well Rupert, you are definitely not just the one in the background for us and we couldn’t be more happy for you. :)

We have the first picture up in our gallery showing Rupert along with Matthew Lewis, Tom Felton and Tom Daley, who posted it via Twitter.
You’ll find it here.
We are sure many more are on their way.

Ed Sheeran is also attending the awards and just won an award, so we are hoping for more news from the new ginger dream team!

UPDATE: We have HQ photos of Rupert at the awards! You can see them here.

UPDATE 2: You can now download the audio versions of both the announcement/winning speech, as well as an interview with the “Best British Actor” which took place a little while later. To download: Click right, and “save as…”:

I can’t explain in Words what I’m feeling now. He won against Emma and Dan after 10 Years and he never complained and now he can go Home with a Award just for his amazing Performance

October 9th, 2011 at 11:24 AM

I can’t even begin to talk about how proud I am right now. Firstly to all the British fans for getting it right! Voting Rupert best actor is the way to go. :) And secondly for the fact that Rupert did win and he finally gets the award and everyone can see how loved he is and how much he deserves an award for his phenomenal acting!

October 9th, 2011 at 11:29 AM

October 9th, 2011 at 11:31 AM

October 9th, 2011 at 11:44 AM

October 9th, 2011 at 12:38 PM


October 9th, 2011 at 12:44 PM

Hey Said something about how unexpected it was, they talked about Ed and the video and Rupert talked about Comrade… But nothing new… just that He filmed it in Norway and that it will propably go to cinema next spring…

October 9th, 2011 at 12:56 PM

Long over due. As much as I love Dan and Emma, Rupert is a better actor than those two – its what attracted me to follow him as a fan. He has deserved this for years. Great great great stuff.

October 9th, 2011 at 1:00 PM

OMG! He won – that is so awesome and overdue :)
Best news I got today!

October 9th, 2011 at 1:03 PM

@fleur don’t care about Interviews now, Rupert won, we should take Time for this to be happy for him and looking at the amazing Pictures. Interviews will come later and so will Videos

October 9th, 2011 at 1:24 PM

I’m really proud of him…nobody deserves that prize as much as he does. After all these years his acting, finally, won a prize, that he deserves so much! ๐Ÿ˜€
I’m so happy, you can’t imagine how (or maybe you do, hehe)

October 9th, 2011 at 1:27 PM

well of course, but i just wanna see so bad…

October 9th, 2011 at 1:29 PM

lol Rosa, yeah we can imagine! we’re in the same situation lol

October 9th, 2011 at 2:25 PM

About damn time he finally gets recognize. I’m so happy that he won, he has been deserving since day one. Glad that people came to their senses. In the category that he won Emma and Daniel were nominated as well? Guys and girls on the same one? Just out of couriosity. Way to go Rupert. And he should have never been the Ginger in the background, kind of sad he has felt that way.

October 9th, 2011 at 2:29 PM

Coooongratuuulatiiions!! ๐Ÿ˜€

October 9th, 2011 at 2:34 PM

@fleur then it’s okay. It’s a special Day for Rupert and his Fans :)

@Rosa I know how you feel Rosa, I’m so damn happy. I wrote it so often on Twitter today and I don’t regret it, because Rupert won and I want to let everyone know how happy I am about this haha

October 9th, 2011 at 3:03 PM

no comment of this yet at snitchseeker – why am I not surprised

October 9th, 2011 at 3:06 PM

^Hey I like snitchseeker. They’ll post the news. I think they’re much better than leaky or mugglenet.

I HATE that he feels that way. I can understand why, but he should never feel second to dan, emma, or anyone for that matter. I’m very pleased and happy for him.

October 9th, 2011 at 3:09 PM

Congratulations!!! Deserved it!!! Rupert is a great actor ! About time …he has been always the best through HP series. I’m really happy!! And he is so sweet indeed.

October 9th, 2011 at 4:14 PM

Finally, after all this time.

October 9th, 2011 at 4:14 PM

Damn…can’t download the audio for some reason!!

October 9th, 2011 at 4:39 PM

Congratulations to Rupert !!! He so deserved it, iยดm so happy for him!!

October 9th, 2011 at 5:37 PM

the links doesnt work for me :( :(

October 9th, 2011 at 5:44 PM

please can anyone tell me which questions are being asked? :( :(

October 9th, 2011 at 5:50 PM

Totally agree with Trude. Those HP site always ignore Rupert Grint except when it is convenient for them., that means when they have nothing about Dan or Emma.

October 9th, 2011 at 5:50 PM

actually it starts downloading then it stops…. :( :(

October 9th, 2011 at 6:00 PM

Fleur, have you tried downloading from the Media Site instead of directly from the post?

October 9th, 2011 at 6:02 PM

yeah ive tried everything, and everytime its stops. :(

October 9th, 2011 at 6:08 PM

Well what do you know, they finally got an award right! Congratuations to him, very well dedserved!

October 9th, 2011 at 6:10 PM

@Fleur: Send me an email to

October 9th, 2011 at 6:43 PM

Ohh…..did it hurt when Rupert fell from heaven?!

October 9th, 2011 at 7:32 PM

I’m loving all the Rupert love going on right now! Twitter is insane! He so deserved this win :)

October 9th, 2011 at 9:05 PM

It Is ABOUT DAMN TIME he got some recognition! I’ve been watching the staff emails all day just getting more and more excited. I’m so proud. He’s not just the ginger in the background, he’s a GINGER EFFING HERO!

October 9th, 2011 at 10:16 PM

@ Jessie..can you chill with that and just be happy that he was given the recognition he deserves? sheesh.

October 9th, 2011 at 10:16 PM

This is such good news, congratulations to Rupert. He is so deserving to win.
I’m getting the perception that maybe Rupert is more popular than Em and Dan in UK. I hate to say this but most US based sites just focus on Emma

October 9th, 2011 at 11:43 PM

So happy for Rupert, no matter what award is, he WON. And it looks like he finally found his other shoe

October 10th, 2011 at 7:50 AM

Bree….lol! I thought that too, about his shoe :)

October 10th, 2011 at 10:03 AM

Yea! Rupert. He most definetly needs to wear more purple. As always he’s so modest. I don’t think he was making a slight or jab at all regarding his time as Ron. He was just being his humble self. But because WE know how he was pushed more to the background we hear that.

October 11th, 2011 at 6:01 AM

wow.. that’s what I’m talking about … finally!! ^_^

October 11th, 2011 at 6:01 AM

UK voters are the best woooo!!
