Rupert Grint: “Mojo” Press Night Coverage!

MojoIcon3November 13th, 2013, 6:25pm– Rupert Grint and his fellow Mojo costars have just made their curtain call bows for the official Mojo press night. And it sounds like it was a roaring success where they could even enjoy a standing ovation from the audience.

We are slowly starting to get pictures from the afterparty and we will keep updating our gallery here while pictures trickle in.
Rupert has decided to team up with Daniel Mays (our new favourite bromance!) – they are wearing matching t-shirts which are decorated with a funny quote from the play: “Fish are jumping and the cotton is hight”.

We are also continously updating our Rave Reviews section where we gather all the amazing things being written about Rupert‘s portrayal of Sweets, so keep checking this page as the reviews come in.

Finally, remember to check out the recent production photos from Mojo – there are some great shots of Rupert in the play. Check them out here.

UPDATE: The Charlie Countryman facebook page has just released a small video of Rupert urging everyone to go see the film – clicky here!

UPDATE: We now have HQ images of Rupert and the Mojo cast taking their bows after the play. They received a standing ovation! View them here.

UPDATE: BBC News has a new article about the opening night of Mojo and even have comments from almost all the actors about the play. You can read the entire article here, but you can read Rupert‘s comments about his stage debut below:

“It’s great that for my stage debut I’m such a long way from anything I’ve done until now,” Rupert Grint says.

“I’ve been offered stage things before and I always hesitated: I thought I wasn’t ready. I didn’t know Jez’s play at all so it was a big leap of faith – but that also goes for Ian Rickson (the director). But we’ve had the luxury of 19 previews to get it right and it’s been an amazing experience.

But is he finding it hard to work straight through for two-and-a-half hours, after spending his teens in the endless stop-start process of making movies?

“Well that’s what the rehearsals do for you. It’s more intense and deeper than in the cinema. In film you dip in and out, with big distractions in between: you don’t go into much detail. Theatre is exhausting in a way film-making usually isn’t. But it’s also really rewarding.”

Brand New Pictures of Rupert Grint in Mojo!

MojoNewsIcon2November 11th, 2013, 2:34pm–Press night is fast approaching and we will soon get many reviews on Mojo and the performances within the play on November 13th. But today a slew of new images from Mojo have emerged featuring Rupert Grint and the rest of the cast. Many of the shots are from one particular scene in the play while a few others are from various other scenes. Many of these images are from a website where you can actually purchase the images if you want them. And yes, that is Rupert as Sweets hiding behind a door. One of the many very hilarious moments in the play! You can view all the images here here!

Rupert Grint on The Andrew Marr Show!

MojoNewsIcon2November 10th, 2013, 5:52am– This morning, Rupert Grint appeared on The Andrew Marr Show on BBC One. He was interviewed in the beautiful Harold Pinter Theatre where he is currently playing Sweets on stage in Mojo.

Rupert talked about what it’s like to be on stage, calling it “thrilling” – but he also said that he had never thought stage work was something he would do since he’s a nervous person in general (we would just like to add that we’re SO happy Rupert decided to do this!!).
We also find out how he deals with being recognized everywhere as well as what it was like playing Cheetah Chrome in CBGB.
We are working on getting this lovely interview online for all of you to see. You can now watch the interview below:

Exclusive: RG.us attends Mojo Opening Night – Report, Pictures & Video!

ExclusiveNewsIconNovember 4th, 2013, 12:30pm– When Rupert Grint made his stage debut last Saturday (October 26th) in Mojo, the staff at RG.us was in attendance. It was an incredible night and we are all so proud of Rupert for taking this huge step in his career.

Since we had 5 staffers in London for the play, we wanted to give you all one review featuring all of our opinions instead of 5 separete reviews. So we all met on Skype and made a ReviewChat where we simply chatted about all our favourite things from the play, with focus on Rupert of course.

You can read our ReviewChat HERE.

We had some really eventful few days in London, and we’ve made a special report where we summarize our amazing meet-ups with Rupert. Although, we did not sit down with him for an official interview, we did have the opportunity to ask him some questions about Mojo and his first experience with stage work.

Read our report HERE and check out a few of our pictures HERE.

Below, you can watch a video of us meeting Rupert the evening before the opening night:

As a bonus, The Sunday Times had an interview with Rupert featuring a brand new (and pretty!) photoshoot. You can check out the scans in our gallery here. It’s well worth the read since we learn more new things about Rupert than we’ve done in ages.

Again, we urge any and all Rupert fans to go and see Mojo. You can buy tickets for the play here!
