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
