January 4th, 2014, 9:17pm–In a brand new interview with the Guardian Rupert Grint opened up about what it’s like to make his stage debut in Mojo. Meeting fans outside the stage door. Playing opposite a Shia LeBeouf while on LSD. Plus working on what the Lego House video has done for him. You can read the entire article here. A few quotes plus a new picture can be seen below!
Emerging from the “safe bubble” of Potter, Grint, 25, felt slightly lost. He credits director Ian Rickson for bringing him Mojo. “That cockney language is almost Shakespearean. And it’s a proper ensemble cast. Danny [Mays] gives me so much energy to bounce off and Ben Whinshaw is amazing.”
While shooting The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, a forthcoming film in which he plays an aspiring porn star, he was astonished to see Shia LaBeouf take LSD for real. “He smashed the place up, got naked and kept seeing this owl. If anything will make you not do drugs, it’s watching that.”
