September 25, 2012, 11:29am– Although news have been a bit slow, we have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you exciting new Rupert Grint goodies. Yesterday, we had the amazing opportunity to talk with Rupert on the phone, and we are now ready to share our interview with everybody.
We asked him several questions about his upcoming projects: The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, CBGB and Postman Pat – as well as a few clarifying questions about The Drummer and Enemy of Man.
We even asked what he was wearing to get all you listeners a visual image of Rupert on the other end of the line, and we asked him to tell us something that no one would expect about him. The answer was… unexpected but this picture might give you a clue.
You can listen to the interview below and read the transcript here.
Thank you so much Rupert for taking the time to talk with us
September 17th, 2012, 2:23PM– Into the White, starring Rupert Grint as British pilot Robert Smith, has been screened this weekend at the 19th Oldenburg Filmfestival 2012 with actors David Kross and Florian Lukas as well as director Petter Næss present for the German premiere on Saturday.
TV Channel RTL aired their report about the film’s premiere this afternoon along with interview snippets with David Kross and Florian Lukas, which you can view below (the part about Into the White starts at 2:33 into the clip).
David Kross: “It is of course a difficult topic, but it also shows the absurdity of the moments in which the characters end up. And that was definitely a lot of fun.” ” We really wore these suits, these really thick flying suits, and it was just those five people; and we really were in this situation and it was damn cold and windy and bad weather conditions, but that helped to really get into character.” Florian Lukas: “We had to film everything in chronological order because, over the course of the film, we take apart the hut. It was a bit like small theatre pieces we were playing for those people. And that was a very special way to make a film, which I have never done before.”
At the premiere, the German co-producer stated that a German release is currently scheduled “around the 27th October”. Not even the actors themselves had heard of this, so we will keep you updated on any release information.
August 1st, 2012, 6:06am– There are only 24 days until Rupert Grint turns 24-years-old and this means that it is time for our annual Birthday Project. Every year, fans from around the world come together to make August 24 extra special for Rupert, and this year we have decided to do a project close to Rupert‘s heart and our own. Instead of sending Rupert a gift or a birthday card, we want you to use that money on a donation for Rupert‘s favourite charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust!
We have decided to make the entire month of August our “Teenage Cancer Trust Awareness Month” and we plan on promoting this cause on the site as well as on our Facebook, our Twitter and our Tumblr. But we cannot do this without your help – so please help us spread the word to anyone and everyone that you know. Every little bit helps, and we want this project to become a huge success!
As you all know, we had the chance to ask Rupert a few questions at the Olympic Torch Relay last Wednesday, and we took the opportunity to ask which charity was closest to his heart. You can see his response below:
We have made it easy for everyone to donate by creating a Just Giving page where all the donations go directly to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Our page can be found HERE! When you have donated you will be able to leave a Happy Birthday message for Rupert which we will pass along to him on the big day.
UPDATE: We have received a statement from Teenage Cancer Trust about this Birthday Project and what the money donated will help achieve:
We are honoured that Rupert Grint and his fans have chosen to celebrate his 24th birthday by raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust. Every penny will make a massive difference to the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.
As the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the, we build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them. We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live. With your support we know we can achieve this.
July 28, 2012, 8:22pm– As previously reported, Rupert Grint carried the Olympic Fire closer towards its destination on Wednesday at Middlesex University. Our staff was present, and we are happy to share our goodies from this awesome once-in-a-lifetime experience with you.
We have uploaded our pictures from the Olympic Flame’s arrival at Middlesex University in the hands of 100-year old Diana Gould, as well as images of a proud Rupert Grintwith his torch being lit in the presence of London’s mayor Boris Johnson.
After Rupert had finished his run, he returned to Middlesex University for a few interviews with the Press. You can view our pictures from these minutes here. Afterwards, Rupert gave another interview just outside the builiding before giving autographs and fulfilling picture-wishes for a few lucky fans. Those pictures can be found here.
We also had the opportunity to ask Rupert a few questions right after he had returned from his run, and we finally learn something about his part in American Dad:
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.
