October 11th, 2013, 11:30pm–While Rupert Grint couldn’t attend the premiere for CBGB in LA or New York he’s still found a way to promote the film by doing plenty of interviews! Today The Daily Beast has released an interview they did where Rupert talks about the real Cheetah Chrome, wanting to become a rock star, and working again with Alan Rickman. This has certainly been an excellent week for Rupert goodies, hasn’t it?
What’s it like working with Alan Rickman (who played Professor Snape in the Harry Potter franchise) in this totally different capacity?
It was weird! I really love Alan. He’s always been one of my favorites. It was just kind of strange to see him in this whole new character and in such a completely different environment. I haven’t seen him much outside of the Potter set after we wrapped, so just seeing him in another environment is odd. It’s kind of like Snape is suddenly a different person. It was weird. But he’s great, and it was nice to have someone who knew your face on set. He made the whole thing a great experience.
So now that you’ve done this movie and played a rock star, any plans to try out doing the real thing?
I’d love to. But I don’t know…I think that ship’s sailed. It’s a dream, but I don’t think I’d really be good at it. I’m not a natural musician. But it was really fun to pretend. I’d like to pretend again.
