Rupert Grint: Olympic Torch Relay – RGus Coverage from London!

July 25, 2012, 7:24am– In a couple of hours Rupert Grint will take part in the incredible honour of carrying the Olympic Torch at the Olympics 2012 which, as we all know, is being held in London! Around the Rings have released a statement about the Olympic Torchbearers and why they were chosen for this special event – as it turns out, Rupert was nominated for all the great charity work he has done:

He was nominated through the Lloyds TSB campaign for inspiring others through his extensive work with children’s charities across the UK. Rupert is actively involved with charities Starlight and the Make-A-Wish Foundation which grant once-in-a-lifetime and magical wishes to seriously and terminally ill children. He also spends much of his free time working with the Teenage Cancer Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Remember that you can watch the entire Torch Relay live HERE! Rupert is set to leave Middlesex University at 1:47pm UK time. So stay tuned. We will of course update you all here on the site and on our twitter where we might even post an exclusive goodie or two ;)

Our staff is present at the relay and will try to update us throughout the event. We have already uploaded some pictures from Middlesex University where you can see how they are preparing for the torch (and Rupert) to arrive in the beautiful summer weather. You can see the pics here and stay tuned for many more updates!


A beautiful screenshot from the live stream of Rupert with the Olympic Torch! Stay tuned for our own AMAZING pictures from the event! Until then you can enjoy some more screenshots and general pictures here.
Here is a teaser for what is to come:

UPDATE: Rupert was interviewed by the BBC right after he finished his part of the relay. Check it out here!
Another interview has surfaced, this time by The Telegraph:

@Trude – It’s unavailable because they’re having a lunch break. It should be back for Rupert-action ;-)

He looks so hot with that outfit!! :P He looks very good in all white :) I’m surprised he kept his CBGB hairdo, he doesn’t usually ‘style’ his hair and leaves it untouched, but I love how that hair looks on him ^^ It’s wonderful to see more of his face, especially his gorgeous eyes :D

‘From being chased I probably run.’ Lol, Rupert!! XD

One thing I noticed when watching the video again was that Rupert walks with a natural swagger. Love it!

@ BonnieRadcliffe: I agree, loving Rupert’s new haircut, he looks so much better and I read comments on another website that people actually didn’t recognise him and that he is ‘so grown up’.

Yeah, Tania, that’s his famous ‘sexy walk’, the one Daniel was talking about when he was asked about how he impersonated 6 other people in the 7 Potters scene :D Daniel couldn’t have put it better. ‘Sexy walk’ is what it is :P
