Rupert Grint: Into the White Interviews and Reviews!

March 9th, 2012, 7:54AM– Following this weeks promotion, Rupert Grint‘s film Into the White is on general release in Norway today!

We have added new translations of articles added to our Press Site with interviews with Rupert, director Petter Næss and his co-stars Lachlan Nieboer and Stig Henrik Hoff as well as stories about his appearance in Bergen.

“He’s an amazing guy! First of all, he’s a great actor, so bloody prepared. And he knows how to film. Moreover, he’s talented, funny and has a great energy. He was fucking great, just a pleasure to act opposite”, Stig Henrik Hoff (47) says

ZentropaNorway have uploaded a video of their interview with Rupert to youtube:

And finally, we also have the first reviews up, and they are full of praise for Mr. Grint and his co-stars. You can find the Rupert-related parts in our Reviews section, which also holds links to the complete original reviews in Norwegian, as well as the full translations in our Press Archive. Click here!

“All the characters are carefully nuanced and played with warmth and depth by the talented actors. Rupert Grint stands out with his rebellious and cheeky Liverpool gunner, together with our own Stig Henrik Hoff as the little talkative German, Strunk. The relationship between the two is perhaps the best thing about the entire film.”
