January started off with the release of Moonwalkers in the US and that gave us interviews featuring Rupert alongside Robert Sheehan (which took us right back to the Cherrybomb days). While the Moonwalkers promotion was underway, we also saw Rupert’s appearance on The Tracey Ullman’s Show appear online.
At the end of January, Rupert attended The Celebration of Harry Potter in Orlando where he met up with his former costars Matthew Lewis, Bonnie Wright, Evanna Lynch and Katie Leung. The weekend was full of fun panels and interviews with the Harry Potter alums and this was also the time we found out that Rupert is in fact a Hufflepuff.
While in Florida, Rupert supported the charity Give Kids the World where he met with lots of kids at their special village.
In February, Rupert promoted the release of Moonwalkers in France. This gave us loads of great interviews.
Things got really exciting when Rupert was spotted on set of a new unknown project in May. It was later revealed that he had been cast as the main character, Daniel Glass, in the 6-part-series Sick Note, which will air on Sky Atlantic in 2017.
Fortunately, Rupert also had time to attend some events in 2016: he attended the Formula 1 race at Silverstone and the launch of the Derren Brown Ghost Train ride at Thorpe Park (with his Cherrybomb buddy Conor MacNeill) in July. In August, he saw the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play in London and met the cast afterwards. In October, he showed up at the launch of the Triumph Bonneville looking very handsome.
In August, it was announced that Rupert would star in the 10-part-series Snatch, which will air on Crackle in 2017. Rupert is playing the character Charlie Cavendish and we have been spoiled with amazing pictures from filming in Manchester where he has been rocking some amazing suits. We can’t wait to see more of Mr. Cavendish on our screens next year.
2016 has also been great for rupert-grint.us – the highlight definitely being our snazzy new layout where we had the opportunity to use some of the gorgeous pictures from the Snatch set.
We can’t wait to see what 2017 will bring – Sick Note and Snatch will air and hopefully more new projects we can look forward to.
We’d love to hear what your favourite piece of Rupert-news was in 2016. Let us know in the comments.
