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.”

UPDATE: We now have 22 HQ photos uploaded from this Richard Saker photoshoot. Check them out here – they’re so pretty!

Rupert Grint & Daniel Mays Talk Mojo on Lorraine!

MojoIcon2December 31st, 2013, 4:54am– Rupert Grint and Daniel Mays appeared together this morning on ITVs Lorraine to talk about Mojo, and it proved to be a delightful interview where their on-stage bromance were visible to see.

They talked about how happy they are about the audience’s positive response to the play, their individual nominations in the WhatsOnStage Awards (VOTE!) as well as their past projects playing Ron Weasley and Ronny Biggs. They were also asked what 2014 had in store for them, but like true actors they dodged the question beautifully and never gave a proper answer.
