Rupert Grint and Ice Cream Man attend Harry Potter Studio Tour Press Conference!

March 29th, 2012, 10:29AM– At this very moment, Rupert Grint and our Ice Cream Man staff is present at the press conference before the grand opening of the Harry Potter Studio Tour at Leavesden. Our staff will do their very best to keep you all updated throughout the exciting events of this grand opening.

Our staff has just sent a quote from Rupert stating how he feels about being on the tour for the first time:

It was quite moving, because it is such a special place. I grew up here, went to school. It is Great that people will get the same excitment as we had.

You can see pictures from the press conference here!

Another brilliant quote from a laughing Rupert answering the question: “What would you like to show your future kids on the tour?”

Just walking on set, being here… The brooms are fun… Tom and I took a ride yesterday.

The grand opening itself is on Saturday, which will include a red carpet event. Warner Brothers is offering the opportunity to watch all the action live through their website – you can follow the exciting events as they happen right here. They will be streaming live from 3PM UK time.

Warner Brothers describes the studio tour as a “behind-the-scenes walking tour which immerses guests into the world of film-making, featuring authentic sets, costumes and props, created at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden. The Studio Tour will initially focus on the Harry Potter film series, which has made the Studios its home for over 10 years. This is the ultimate chance to walk around and experience the world of Harry Potter and the place Rupert Grint has called home for over 10 years as Ron Weasley.

We will continuously update the gallery when more and more pictures appear during the day. You can see pictures from the Harry Potter Studio Tour here!
