Rupert Grint: “Mojo” Press Night Coverage!

MojoIcon3November 13th, 2013, 6:25pm– Rupert Grint and his fellow Mojo costars have just made their curtain call bows for the official Mojo press night. And it sounds like it was a roaring success where they could even enjoy a standing ovation from the audience.

We are slowly starting to get pictures from the afterparty and we will keep updating our gallery here while pictures trickle in.
Rupert has decided to team up with Daniel Mays (our new favourite bromance!) – they are wearing matching t-shirts which are decorated with a funny quote from the play: “Fish are jumping and the cotton is hight”.

We are also continously updating our Rave Reviews section where we gather all the amazing things being written about Rupert‘s portrayal of Sweets, so keep checking this page as the reviews come in.

Finally, remember to check out the recent production photos from Mojo – there are some great shots of Rupert in the play. Check them out here.

UPDATE: The Charlie Countryman facebook page has just released a small video of Rupert urging everyone to go see the film – clicky here!

UPDATE: We now have HQ images of Rupert and the Mojo cast taking their bows after the play. They received a standing ovation! View them here.

UPDATE: BBC News has a new article about the opening night of Mojo and even have comments from almost all the actors about the play. You can read the entire article here, but you can read Rupert‘s comments about his stage debut below:

“It’s great that for my stage debut I’m such a long way from anything I’ve done until now,” Rupert Grint says.

“I’ve been offered stage things before and I always hesitated: I thought I wasn’t ready. I didn’t know Jez’s play at all so it was a big leap of faith – but that also goes for Ian Rickson (the director). But we’ve had the luxury of 19 previews to get it right and it’s been an amazing experience.

But is he finding it hard to work straight through for two-and-a-half hours, after spending his teens in the endless stop-start process of making movies?

“Well that’s what the rehearsals do for you. It’s more intense and deeper than in the cinema. In film you dip in and out, with big distractions in between: you don’t go into much detail. Theatre is exhausting in a way film-making usually isn’t. But it’s also really rewarding.”

I bet the matching T shirts idea was from Rupert :D

Skimmed through the reviews ,so far so good, mostly very positive, even the (expected isolated ) ones which were not so fond of the play can’t deny that Rupert did a great job on his stage debut, so proud of him!

I feel so proud of Rupert for doing this stage play, and of course he’s good at it.

Still awaiting Rupert’s first t-shirt collection …

Hmm. It’s working on my iPad. I used both google chrome and safari. I’ll keep looking into it. Though something you might want to try is clearing your cookies. Sometimes things like that help. :)
