Rupert Grint: Ice Cream Man Exclusive – HP Studio Tour Review + more pictures!

April 2nd, 2012, 3:50PM — It’s been an eventful weekend in London with the grand opening of the Harry Potter Studio Tour at Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios. As we reported earlier, both Rupert Grint and Ice Cream Man were present at the press conference, the red carpet and the studio tour itself. We’ve brought you pictures and interviews from the red carpet – and now it’s time for the exclusive Ice Cream Man review from the Harry Potter Studio Tour. You can read a small snippet from it here:

After almost growing up with Harry Potter, reading the books a dozen times and watching the movies what feels like a thousand times, it is hard to describe what kind of a feeling it is finally to be on the Harry Potter Studio Tour. And even though this word might be used a little too often these days there is no other one that can describe it in a better way. It is “magical”!

Read the review in its entirety here – but beware of the spoilers!

You can see all the pictures from Ice Cream Man‘s visit at the Harry Potter Studio Tour here.

Our staff also took pictures at the red carpet, and you can see the pictures here.

Ice Cream Man and Rupert Grint On The Red Carpet of Harry Potter Studio Tour!

March 31st, 2012, 2:51pm–In continuing with the post below we have more to add and wanted a fresh and brand new post. Ice Cream Man got the chance to ask Rupert Grint a few questions on the red carpet today. We will have pictures coming up on Monday but for right now here is the short Q&A with Rupert:

  • Have you developed your skiing skills, now that you got your own ones?
    Yeah, they gave me some skies. I am gonna try to do it, because I didn’t do very well in Norway. It’s one of the things I am gonna do.
  • Can you tell us about your upcoming project “The Drummer”?
    I am really excited about it. I am a big fan of the Beach Boys. It’s a cool part. It will be something different, it’s American so that will be interesting.
  • So there will be an American accent?
    Oh Yeah!

So there we have it, folks! Rupert will be doing an American accent in “The Drummer”!

We also have a few MQ photos of Rupert on the red carpet that were released by various outlets which you can view here. HQ versions coming soon!

It was quite moving, because it is such a special place. I grew up here, went to school. It is Great that people will get the same excitment as we had.

You can see pictures from the press conference here!

Another brilliant quote from a laughing Rupert answering the question: “What would you like to show your future kids on the tour?”

Just walking on set, being here… The brooms are fun… Tom and I took a ride yesterday.

The grand opening itself is on Saturday, which will include a red carpet event. Warner Brothers is offering the opportunity to watch all the action live through their website – you can follow the exciting events as they happen right here. They will be streaming live from 3PM UK time.

Warner Brothers describes the studio tour as a “behind-the-scenes walking tour which immerses guests into the world of film-making, featuring authentic sets, costumes and props, created at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden. The Studio Tour will initially focus on the Harry Potter film series, which has made the Studios its home for over 10 years. This is the ultimate chance to walk around and experience the world of Harry Potter and the place Rupert Grint has called home for over 10 years as Ron Weasley.

We will continuously update the gallery when more and more pictures appear during the day. You can see pictures from the Harry Potter Studio Tour here!
