Rupert Grint: New Interview with Metro.co.uk!

July 29, 2012, 7:08am– Metro.co.uk has released a brand new interview with Rupert Grint where we get a bunch of great new quotes about all his recent projects, the Olympics, life on the Harry Potter set and even his favourite pets.

Rupert talks a great deal about playing Cheetah Chrome in CBGB and what it was like portraying a real person that is still alive today:

Cheetah Chrome was actually on set. It’s the first time I’ve played a real person and there’s a pressure to get it right. I also have to play the guitar, which I can’t do – I was faking it. I learned the chords and rough shapes but you won’t see my hands too much in the film. It’s amazing he’s still alive, given the amount of drugs he did. He’s got a young son who was a big Harry Potter fan, so it was nice to meet him.
Cheetah had some advice about my performance and I had to get his voice right – he had quite a distinctive drug-affected mumbling voice and I had to do an American accent. We’re both ginger so look similar. Hopefully people will buy it.

He was also asked about his role in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman where he stars alongside Shia Labeouf:

That’s quite a strange one. Shia LaBeouf plays a character who travels around the world. It’s quite a drug-fuelled journey and he meets various crazy characters along the way.
I play a character he meets in a youth hostel. I can’t give away what he does but it was quite a transition for me.

The interview is a great read and Rupert offers some nice insights into life on a movie set, you can read the entire interview here!

UPDATE #2: We have just received word that Rupert will indeed be a guest on Beat TV! He will film his appearance next week on Tuesday August 7. Exciting news, and we can’t wait to see Rupert on this show!

Rupert Grint to talk about the Harry Potter Phenomenon during Olympic Business Series!

June 29th, 2012, 1:10pm– A new article from Screendaily lists Rupert Grint as one of the speakers at the Creative Content day on July 31 which will highlight the UK industry to global leaders. Rupert will be talking about the Harry Potter phenomenon with producer David Heyman and Josh Berger from Warner Bros. Although this is a closed event for UK and international industry, it is interesting to see how Rupert will help shed light on the UK industry alongside many other prominent and respected people from various branches of creativity.

In other news, both Evan Rachel Wood and writer Matt Drake have tweeted that The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman has officially wrapped. Hopefully this means that more information will become available since it is still unclear who Rupert will play in the film.

While production of CBGB has begun in Savannah, Rupert has not begun work as Cheetah Chrome just yet, and until he arrives on set we can expect him to show up at various events in the UK – The Media Eye tweeted earlier today that Rupert would be attending the Goodwood VIP Party. We have no idea if this is true, but look out for pictures floating around.
