November 28th, 2011, 8:16pm–In a new interview Rupert Grint talks with The Mirror to promote the UK release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 on DVD and Blu-Ray. An array of topics are discussed in depth including what has gone on in his life after Harry Potter.
“But the end of Potter saw him finally take a long break. “I have not been in too much of a rush to do anything really,” he says. “It has been nice to catch up on a few things and have a bit of freedom. I did a film earlier this year called Comrade, a Second World War movie set in Norway – that was pretty cool. Apart from that I have just been relaxing.”
He also discussed that he’s ready to get back to ‘work':
After his break, and this final interview ahead of the release of the last Potter DVD, Rupert is ready to look for work.
So what about the biggest role of all, James Bond?
“A ginger Bond? Why not? That would be cool. But I can’t really see it myself.”
Rupert also discusses buying his own home, different items he’s purchased, and of course his own private love life. You can read the entire interview in our press archive here.
Note: It’s possible the interview took place before Comrade was changed to Into The White and that’s why he referred to the old title.
November 21st, 2011, 1:24 PM– Earlier today, Rupert Grint‘s Harry-Potter co-star Warwick Davis tweeted a picture of Rupert holding a t-shirt designed by Warwick himself on behalf on Make-a-Wish Foundation.
The shirt is available for order through ShirtPunch ONLY today.
Additionally, Rupert supports this year’s Little Star Award, in support of Cancer Research UK, joining Leona Lewis among others.
“Supporting Cancer Research UK’s Little Star Awards is a privilege,” said Rupert Grint. “The awards are a fantastic way of recognizing the bravery and courage of all children and their families who have been affected by cancer. Each and every child is a hero. I’m proud to be able to play a part in raising awareness of the awards and I think that it’s wonderful that Cancer Research UK is helping to bring a little bit of magic to the children’s lives in this way.”
In addition to the interview we posted about this weekend, MSN have published another clip in which Rupert Grint talks about being back at Leavesden Studios and how he stole the housenumber of Privet Drive. He also discussed his role in Postman Pat and music.
November 19th, 2011, 5:02AM– While almost half of our staffcrew is on their way back from Stockholm, where they got the chance to not only see a few scenes of Rupert Grint’s new movie Into The White, but also the opportunity for an exclusive interview with the director Petter Næss, we have some new things to share with you.

As we told you some time ago here, msn UK spoke to Rupert at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter. Their interview is now up and you’ll find it below:
Last, but not least we have a short article written by film-news.co.uk in our press page here. Rupert speaks about being recognized all of the time and blames it on being ginger:
“Yeah, I’m ginger, so I stand out,” he laughed. “It’s cool. I love meeting all those guys, seeing them all excited. It’s all great. It’s always been gradually becoming more and more part of my life as it’s gone on. It kind of becomes normal- getting recognised is kind of a routine, you kind of get used to it.”
November 14th, 2011, 10:20am– With Rupert Grint still in Orlando to celebrate the DVD/BluRay release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, we have a sum-up of the recent events for you:
On Friday, Rupert participated in a Press Conference alongside several cast and crew members:
About finishing filming Harry Potter, Rupert said “It’s weird, it was my childhood. It hard to put into words”. As he had revealed previously, Rupert mentioned having taking the Deluminator home on his last day, and that he and Ron have almost become one over the course of the years. He also talked about packing up his room and finding mechanical turtles from when he started filming. Rupert discussed a moment during the Goblet of Fire premiere in New York when a man in a wheelchair grabbed the back of their car when they drove off. Rupert mentioned that his favourite book of the series was Deathly Hallows, and that he only recently learnt of Ron’s almost-death.
He revealed that he is enjoying a break after finishing Comrade and that there is “no real pressure to work right away”.
On Saturday, Rupert appeared at a Q&A event:
At the Q&A, Rupert revealed that Sorcerer’s Stone was his favourite film, with the chess set being his overall favourite set of the series. As he had mentioned before, Rupert talked about wanting a flying car, and that, while he would have enjoyed to play a death scene, he was glad that Ron survived.
Rupert revealed that he likes Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans best, including the dirt-flavoured ones, and that he ate dirt when he was a kid!
Rupert also mentioned enjoying to wear the fat suit for the Epilogue, and revealed that he might get a Twitter account to interact with the fans.
On joining his fellow Harry Potter costars on Twitter, Rupert did say maybe, and saw it as a great way to interact with fans
Here you can view a clip of Rupert repeating a part of his audition rap:
According to Snitchseeker.com, Rupert will also appear on Jessie Cave’s comedy series on her website, pindippy.com, as cousin “Gwyllem”
Snitchseeker had the chance to talk with her and she only had nice things to say about Rupert:
“He’s such a lovely guy, he’s so normal and grounded, and is just going to work forever as an actor, and I think that’s really admirable, because in a world where he’s so different, he’s his true self. He’s funny, and really lovely, and genuinely down-to-earth.”

November 12th, 2011, 9:40pm–As you all know, Rupert Grint along with many of his Harry Potter co-stars including, but not limited to, Evanna Lynch, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps and Mark Williams, are at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida to promote the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 which is out now in the US on blu-ray and DVD. This weekend had an array of events including a red carpet tonight to celebrate the final film’s DVD release. You can view pictures of the even in our gallery here. Hopefully more pictures to come! Stay tuned!
And yes, Rupert has expressed interest in getting a Twitter account, but I’d advise everyone to not follow anyone until it’s confirmed. There are sadly a lot of people who think it’s funny to string fans along like that.
UPDATE: Several updates for you. First a video interview from E! that was suppose to be posted last night but apparently something messed up. Apologies! Secondly we have HQ pictures now from the even which can be viewed here. And lastly a picture from the Q&A event here.
