Rupert Grint: Growing up on a filmset!

July 10th, 2011, 6:10am–
htrnews.com took a look on the life of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. How they grew up on the Harry Potter filmset and how they developed from young kids who are first kids then actors to young adults who just love to act. They also try to find out what kept the young cast on the ground all the time and how their life will be in the future.

“Cast as impressionable children in Hollywood’s biggest fantasy franchise, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and their many young co-stars have maneuvered through 11 years of fame — and the temptations it brings — without any whispers of Lindsay Lohan-style meltdowns that can derail child actors.

They’ve grown up smart, humble, polite and professional, eager to balance modest private lives with productive acting careers rather than leap into the party-till-dawn celebrity lifestyle.”

To read the whole article just go over to our press archive.

Thanks to Maria we also have a nice comment about Rupert’s performence in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 made by The guardian.

“Once again the cast seem to have kicked things up a notch; the acting is the best it has been since the release of the first film in 2001. The development of Rupert Grint’s Ron Weasley, which began in the last film, culminates in a truly impressive performance: a brief but painfully poignant scene where he breaks down upon witnessing a family tragedy leaves the cinema in eerie silence punctuated only by some sniffing. I suspect there might be a few damp eyes hidden behind the 3D glasses.”

And who wouldn’t agree to heatworld:

“But we will say, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint absolutely shine in this film. And if you don’t come out fancying Rupert (Ron) a little, we’ll be very surprised.”

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our review page, as we will continue to add all comments we will find about Rupert. If you find one please feel free to send it over to us. Language doesn’t matter.

UPDATE: An other article published by arts.nationalpost.com has surfaced:

“Of course, this last instalment in the series also features the long-awaited kiss between Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint), while their burgeoning relationship offers much needed comic relief from the unrelenting tension.

“We go off on this little adventure together,” Watson says. “It’s kind of like a comedy act because it’s the first time that you see them in tune.

“I really enjoyed the experience. Rupert is a great comedic actor, and so we had a really good time bringing the humour out of everything that we could.”

New interview with Rupert Grint!

July 7th, 2011, 9:45 am–A new interview has surfaced online today. Amy Kaufman from Los Angeles Times – HERO COMPLEX had the opportunity to speak with Rupert Grint.


You’ll find the whole interview in our press archive here.


AK: Have you felt pressure about choosing your post-”Potter” roles?
RG: Not so much really. This last movie just came up, and I was quite game to do something different. It’s just a new challenge. It all kind of made sense. … It’s called “Comrade,” and it’s about a true story set in World War II about two English pilots and three German pilots. They both shoot each other down in the middle of Norway, and they find each other in this old cabin thing, and it’s how our relationship with each other changes. We go into survival mode and put the war aside and we become friends, so it’s quite cool. … It was very different — extremely different. We filmed it in Norway on top of a mountain in crazy weather. It was minus-25 with snow everywhere. It was quite extreme. It was a very different filming experience. … It was a true story. These were real people. World War II always felt like quite an interesting part of history.

AK: It sounds heavy, a departure from your more comedic work.
RG: I’m pretty much kind of up for anything really — anything that’s kind of a bit of an interesting character always appeals to me.

We also have a nice comment from heatworld.com about Rupert’s appearance on the red carptet of the Harry potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiere yesterday to share with you.

…And then there was lovely, shy Rupert Grint, who was actually quite prompt in his arrival (well done Rupert) – but he still managed to spend almost four hours actually walking the red carpet, talking to fans – impressive by anyone’s standards…

Yeah, that sounds like Rupert how we know and love him :)

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our gallery, we will uploading lots of pictures our staffer Karo and Anna took yesterday through the whole day.

And if you want to take a look on Karo’s review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 click here. BEWARE OF SPOILERS!

New Rupert Grint Comrade Press Conference Video!

April 12th, 2011, 7:32pm–Rupert Grint news has slowed somewhat while the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 DVD and Blu-Ray is just days away (though in some countries it has already been released). And it is now less than a 100 days until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 comes to theaters. However we do have a non-HP treat for you. Just days before he started filming his latest movie Comrade, Rupert and his co-stars took part in a press conference for the movie. A new video surfaced some days ago of an interview with Rupert and his co-star Lachlan Nieboer talking about various things including why they decided to take the role. While the questions might be similar to the other video that was released, this one definitely has different answers. You can watch the interview below:

Also if you haven’t caught it yet, a longer version of the final scene ever filmed for the Harry Potter series was released recently. You can see it on our youtube page here. Warning: Trio tears my cause tears for you!

UPDATE: Petter Naess answers your questions! Check out Zentropa Norway Tumblr for part 1 of the interview. Some great things about Rupert!
