In this clip “Rup-Dog” talks about everything from his recent projects, including Postman Pat, CBGB and Into the White (or now known as Cross of Honour in the UK), his favourite place in London and which sport he would choose if he competed in the Olympics.

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: 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!

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!


A beautiful screenshot from the live stream of Rupert with the Olympic Torch! Stay tuned for our own AMAZING pictures from the event! Until then you can enjoy some more screenshots and general pictures here.

Another interview has surfaced, this time by The Telegraph:

Rupert Grint Carrying the Olympic Torch on 25 July!

July 16, 2012, 11:43pm– Rupert Grint will be carrying the Olympic Torch on 25 July from Middlesex University! BBC News has released an article where they specify the final leg in London before the ceremony kicks off on 27 July! BBC writes that the relay will go through every London borough before the cauldron is lit at the opening ceremony.

The most important day for us Rupert Grint fans will take place on Wednesday 25 July, and the highlights of that day includes:

Wednesday, 25 July – Olympic badminton silver medallist Nathan Robertson carries the flame outside the sport’s London 2012 venue, Wembley Arena. England ’66 World Cup winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks takes the Wembley Stadium leg. Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint takes the torch at Middlesex University and the last torchbearer of the day is Daley Thompson.

We will of course update with pictures of Rupert carrying the torch and more info about the event whenever it becomes available!

UPDATE: time-series.co.uk have added several details about Rupert‘s relay from Middlesex University in the Burroughs, Hendon. It is definitely worth a visit since they have planned a great day for all spectators:

Community and student music groups will perform from 12-2pm while the torch stops off at the university at 12.47pm.
The torch will then continue its journey through the borough at 1.47pm.

UPDATE #2: Great news! We will be able to hold an international “Rupert Grint Torch Relay” party together! It is possible to watch the torch relay LIVE right HERE!

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.
If you come across any new pictures, feel free to send an email to staff@rupert-grint.us :)
