February 26th, 2012, 9:37AM– Back in december ICM sat down with Steffi Bruhn, costume designer of Rupert Grint’s upcoming movie “Into The White“. We talked for almost two hours at a nice café in Berlin at the exact same table where she met Petter Næss for the first time and decided that she just “had to get” this job.
We got a great look behind the scenes and she gave us an idea about her work before and while shooting a movie. You will find out more about the “Teletubby style”, how she managed to give every character his personal feature while wearing the uniforms and that we almost got to see Rupert wearing a sailor suit. We also proudly present to you some exclusive pictures showing the original Horst Shopis and the development of the costumes.
Talking about Rupert, she only had the nicest things to say about our favourite guy and we got an idea about his fittings and his work on and off set. To give you a first glimpse:
Rupert is TERRIFIC! I’ve never met an actor like him before. Unbelievable! He is a professional man in the most positive way. He has discipline, such a natural discipline. He dressed up in his costume every morning and in the evening undressed exactly the same. Nevertheless if outside or inside, hot or cold, he paid perfectly attention to his precious original Costume-Details.

Again a big thank you to Steffi for taking your time! It was a pleasure.
And a massive thank you to Melina for helping with the translation and editing the interview.
