Rupert Grint wins BBC Teen Awards as Best British Actor!

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

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!

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

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

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 🙂

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.

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

UK voters are the best woooo!!
