Introducing Rupert-Grint.us Exclusives!

December 30, 2012, 7:49am– Just before the year is drawing to a close, we are happy to introduce to all you Rupert Grint fans our new sub-site: Rupert-Grint.us Exclusives!

2012 has been a great year for Rupert, and once again, we staffers have had amazing experiences, for example at the Into the White World Premiere in Oslo, the Grand Opening of Warner Bros Studio Tour, the Olympic Torch Relay and of course our Phone Interview with Rupert Grint himself.
Travelling to those events is definitely one of the highlights of being a staff member, and therefore we decided to create a special place for what we have brought back.

So finally, after a long time, we have finished moving all our assembled goodies to one place – but not only that! You can also find previously un-published reports, transcripts and, most importantly, videos and audios from interviews and red carpets on our new site (want to hear composer David Holmes gushing over Rupert’s Belfast accent in Cherrybomb?). You can also find the clip if you head over to our Exclusives Youtube channel, and make sure to subscribe!

Once again, we would like to that Flor from Sweet-Revelation.net for creating a gorgeous layout with our very own, self-taken pictures of Rupert Grint!

And also, a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us in bringing these Exclusives together, especially of course to Rupert himself, and to his entire team!
We are already looking forward to what next year will bring!

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!

Remember to check out our extensive coverage of Rupert Grint’s Olympic Torch Relay in our previous post with all the beautiful new pictures and the lovely new interview.

UPDATE: Female First and The Sun are reporting that Rupert will be a guest on Beat TV! It is a music-based entertainment show highlighting the social side of the Olympic Games and revealing what’s happening out and about in London town. We do not know when Rupert will appear on the show, but it premieres tonight on ITV2 at 6:30pm (UK time). We will have more on this as soon as more news surfaces.

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!

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: Olympic Torch Relay – RGus Coverage from London!

July 25, 2012, 7:24am– In a couple of hours Rupert Grint will take part in the incredible honour of carrying the Olympic Torch at the Olympics 2012 which, as we all know, is being held in London! Around the Rings have released a statement about the Olympic Torchbearers and why they were chosen for this special event – as it turns out, Rupert was nominated for all the great charity work he has done:

He was nominated through the Lloyds TSB campaign for inspiring others through his extensive work with children’s charities across the UK. Rupert is actively involved with charities Starlight and the Make-A-Wish Foundation which grant once-in-a-lifetime and magical wishes to seriously and terminally ill children. He also spends much of his free time working with the Teenage Cancer Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Remember that you can watch the entire Torch Relay live HERE! Rupert is set to leave Middlesex University at 1:47pm UK time. So stay tuned. We will of course update you all here on the site and on our twitter where we might even post an exclusive goodie or two ;)

Our staff is present at the relay and will try to update us throughout the event. We have already uploaded some pictures from Middlesex University where you can see how they are preparing for the torch (and Rupert) to arrive in the beautiful summer weather. You can see the pics here and stay tuned for many more updates!
