The Mirror Interviews Rupert Grint!

RupertNewsIconOctober 3th, 2014, 6:34pm– We are getting spoiled these days with some amazing Rupert Grint news and it seems like we might just have a lot more amazingness coming up. Tonight, The Mirror has released a brand new interview they have done with Rupert and we learn so many new lovely things about him – this interview touches on anything from money, new pets, a potential girlfriend and even religion.

Below is an endearing quote about a new girl in Rupert‘s life:

Despite the obvious lure of Hollywood – and he is chatting from a rented apartment in Manhattan – Rupert has no plans to up sticks and leave the UK for good.
“I like England – it’s my home,” he says.
Helping him feel at home in the Big Apple is a new addition to the Grint household – a tortoise called Madeleine. She’s not named after anyone in particular (no money-grabbing ex-girlfriend?) – she “just looked like a Maddie”.

We also get yet another lovely quote from Rupert’s current co-stars. This time it is Matthew Broderick speaking about Rupert’s Broadway debut:

“He is really sweet… so hardworking and diligent, and to see a young fellow get his first Broadway shot is just a pleasure to watch.”

Don’t hesitate to head over to their website (HERE!) and read the entire interview – it’s a great read.

Also, Rupert will join the rest of the It’s Only a Play cast on CBS Sunday Morning to talk about what actors REALLY think of critics’ reviews. So stay tuned for that!

Rupert Grint Chats With Broadway Direct!

IOAP Icon1September 24th, 2014, 4:06pm–Today Broadway Direct released an interview with Rupert Grint and It’s Only A Play playwright Terrance McNally. Rupert talks a lot about Frank Finger and how and why he chose to do the play:

“When I read the script, I loved the character immediately,” says Grint, who is much more low-key in conversation than “Sir” Frank. “He’s already been knighted and is on top of his game, but he’s sick of being glorified. He’s also a borderline kleptomaniac, bold and ridiculous and kind of crazy, which is really, really fun for me. The play has such a rich variety of characters, all wanting different things from the reviews.”

A little bit of a review of Rupert’s performance was also talked about:

his assured and hilarious performance as director Frank Finger in It’s Only a Play. Clad in an eye-popping print suit, his red hair gelled like a rock star’s, Grint makes a vivid comic impression as an arrogant critics’ darling, lamenting with a pout, “I can’t help it — I was born charismatic.”
