Exclusive Coverage of Rupert Grint at the Olympic Torch Relay!


July 28, 2012, 8:22pm– As previously reported, Rupert Grint carried the Olympic Fire closer towards its destination on Wednesday at Middlesex University. Our staff was present, and we are happy to share our goodies from this awesome once-in-a-lifetime experience with you.

We have uploaded our pictures from the Olympic Flame’s arrival at Middlesex University in the hands of 100-year old Diana Gould, as well as images of a proud Rupert Grint with his torch being lit in the presence of London’s mayor Boris Johnson.

After Rupert had finished his run, he returned to Middlesex University for a few interviews with the Press. You can view our pictures from these minutes here. Afterwards, Rupert gave another interview just outside the builiding before giving autographs and fulfilling picture-wishes for a few lucky fans. Those pictures can be found here.

We also had the opportunity to ask Rupert a few questions right after he had returned from his run, and we finally learn something about his part in American Dad:

Rupert Grint talks the Olympic Games and Olympic Torch Relay!

July 24, 2012, 3:58pm– Tomorrow, Rupert Grint is going to carry the Olympic Torch around Hendon on its way to the Olympic Games in London.
During the Press Call for his upcoming film CBGB, Rupert spoke to MTV about being one of the bearers of the Torch and what he is looking forward to in the Games.

“It’s really exciting,” Grint told MTV News on the set of his new movie “CBGB” in Savannah, Georgia. “I’ve always been a big fan of the Olympics and [have] always [wanted] to get involved with it.”

“It’s a really historical kind of event, and I don’t think in my lifetime there’ll be another Olympics in London, so yeah, I feel really honored to be part of it,”

The Olympic Torch will arrive at Middlesex University at 12 o’clock and Rupert is set to leave at 1:47pm, so if you happen to be in the area, it might be worth heading over!
