A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Tom Felton

"Very much so! He’s a dashing gentleman, have you not seen him? He’s very buff! He’s solid, man!” (about how he fancies Rupert)” Tom Felton (x)

"Rupert is a unique soul. He’s a very funny guy. But without realising it, actually! I swear most of his comedy comes by accident. But he’s very good at it! And he’s incredibly infectious. People laugh around me all day and I don’t get suckered into it. But when he laughs … that’s it! It’s game over for me. I feel something inside of me turn and I’m like, ‘Oh, no!" Tom Felton(x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Ron Weasley

“When I was much younger, I was often asked in what ways I thought I was similar to Ron. My stock answer usually included something similar to: ‘I like sweets, I’m scared of spiders, I’ve got ginger hair, I come from a big family.’ But, the truth is that Ron is my hero. He’s always there for his friends—sometimes belligerently, but there nevertheless. And no matter how scared he may be, he will put aside his fears to support and protect the people he loves. To me, that represents true courage.” Rupert Grint (x)

“Ron grow much stronger in the script at the last three movies […] he became a really wonderful character for writing and Rupert is so brilliant in playing him. I think we so underestimate Rupert, how he plays that character…” Steve Kloves | Harry Potter Screenwriter (x)

“There is a warmth about Rupert, which is absolutely part of the character of Ron. Ron is kind and thoughtful and slightly insecure, and has a generousness of spirit that I also see in Rupert.” Karen Lindsay-Steward | HP Casting Director (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; On Set

“I giggled while they were filming, which was a bit annoying. I got a nickname: Go-Again Grint.” Rupert Grint (x)

"Rupert’s got a pretty good room. Table tennis, darts, pool." Matthew Lewis (x)

“There will be so many happy memories of the people I’ve worked with. Rupert Grint’s corpsing [cracking up during a take] will stay with me for the rest of my life. He is a terrible corpser and he always tries to hide it. I was doing a shot today where he walks towards Emma — he started to go before he was within seven feet of her and then tried to hide behind her so we couldn’t see. It’s so sweet.” David Yates (x)

“We must have done it 20 times, because we couldn’t stop laughing. Me and Rupert are still pretty terrible at corpsing. I’ve got a lot better, but Rupert’s awful…” Daniel Radcliffe (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Lego House

“When I was coming up with ideas for the Lego House video, I knew that I wanted Rupert to be in it. I’ve grown up with the Potter films and have massive respect for him as an actor. This video is going to be brilliant.” Ed Sheeran (x)

“It came about because we’re both kind of ginger. Once you see the video, it will make sense. It was a lot of fun. It was very different” Rupert Grint (x)

“Rupert Grint is the nicest guy you could possibly meet – he’s lovely and did it for free, which shows how nice he is. It was really fun to make and at my gig everyone went nuts when he came on-stage, which was funny.” Ed Sheeran (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Bromance with The Phelps Twins

"I’ll say Rup, I mean Rupert who plays Ron, he’s probably the most down-to-earth guy you will ever meet, ever." James Phelps

"We have the same sense of humor and he’s just the coolest person - I’ve yet to meet anyone who says a bad word against him" James Phelps

"He had the best dressing room, so that was our unofficial Green Room and last year he called up asking if I wanted to go to Wimbledon. He got us into the Royal Box and I was saying: ‘Mate, this has ruined me for anything else" James Phelps

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Snickering Laugh and Smiles

Rupert is a unique soul. He’s a very funny guy. But without realising it, actually! I swear most of his comedy comes by accident. But he’s very good at it! And he’s incredibly infectious. People laugh around me all day and I don’t get suckered into it. But when he laughs … that’s it! It’s game over for me. I feel something inside of me turn and I’m like, ‘Oh, no!’” Tom Felton (x)

I’m known for laughing really inappropriately, particularly on the set of Harry Potter. There’s usually no reason at all… just giggling. I don’t know what it is – it usually happens during more serious scenes.” Rupert Grint (x)

“Rupert was great at making everyone laugh on set. There was one scene in which he had to come on and say, ‘Back off, unless you want a fistful of Weasley,’ which was a direct quote from the book. But Rupert couldn’t say it, and he broke out in an infectious laugh; every time he tried to do the scene we all got the giggles, too – until the director was like, ‘This just isn’t working, let’s scrap the line and move on.’ We’d wasted an entire day filming because of Rupert’s laugh. Matthew Lewis (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Quirky

"We’ve got a lot of animals at the moment. We just got some miniature donkeys, and miniature pigs as well. I got kind of like a miniature farm. Miniature hedgehogs as well. You can put them in the palm of your hand. We’ve got two peacocks as well. " Rupert Grint 

"So, do you have any real life special powers? I can unicycle” Rupert Grint

"Ever been at a party where an animal was roaming around?" "I have quite a few animals at home, like donkeys and pigs, so they would have been roaming about during our party." Rupert Grint

“Compared to Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, Rupert seems to be more quiet and quirky when interviewed. “Just like Ron” says Emma about this red-head guy who has a big family in real-life.” Journalist | Cinemags

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Olympic Torch

“Running is kind of a new thing for me. I don’t usually run for anything, but it was all downhill so I was okay.” Rupert Grint (x)

“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.” Rupert Grint (x)

“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,” Rupert Grint (x)

Rupert was successfully nominated to carry the Flame after 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 (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Matthew Lewis

He was quite an enigma, as he didn’t talk much about himself – he still doesn’t – but he liked to have fun. In our spare time we hung out a lot in his room, where he had a pool table and a dartboard with a picture of Saddam Hussein stuck on. Then we’d spend hours exchanging endless obscure Alan Partridge quotes.” Matthew Lewis (x)

"Matt had done a few things before, such as Heartbeat, so he was already a star. When he was younger he was like a little Peter Kay, with a real Yorkshire sense of humour. He’d eat chocolate mousse and purposefully get it all over his face to make me laugh – and then I couldn’t finish a scene.Rupert Grint (x)

“In the early films he was all about making an audience laugh, too – he has such great facial expressions. But he can be serious [in his acting], too, and he’ll probably end up being one of the more bankable actors [from the franchise].” Matthew Lewis (x)

"As for Matt, it was great to see him playing a different role in The Syndicate – a real thug, hardcore, but he added vulnerability to it and he was very good.Rupert Grint (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Natural

"I always had a feeling that Rupert just knew - I always had the feeling, I may be wrong, if you interview Rupert, he might say different, but my strong feeling is that he got Ron inside and out, and I don’t know that he needed anyone to tell him.” JK Rowling 

Rupert, I would say, is the most natural performer. He has the most beautiful comedy timing I think I’ve seen in a child.” Robbie Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid)

“I think he has a real knack for comedy, but I do think he finds it difficult. He think he finds the absolute precision of it difficult. The reason he does seem to have a knack for it is that he’s a natural, and he has this wonderful personae that works so well on the screen. He was the easiest and nicest person to have around, and he was determined to do whatever I asked.” Jonathan Lynn | Wild Target Director

Rupert Grint is always very focused and his intense performances always feel very real and authentic. On top of that his looks make him perfect for the role and also helps to create a visual variation in this ensemble film.” Petter Næss | Into The White Director

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Photoshoots

“I really enjoyed working with Sarah and Sally. They made it easy and I am excited to be featured in BLAG, as I think it’s a very cool magazine.” Rupert Grint (x)

“He is very relaxed in front of the camera. I am sure he gets nervous sometimes, but it really does not show.” Helen Sloan | Photographer (x)

“Unlike Daniel Radcliffe who is a ball of nervous energy, Rupert Grint is completely understated, quiet and shy. He’s utterly charming and sweet, gently blokey, completely unlike Ron – more subdued if you can believe it. But he brings with him a vulnerability that makes you want to cuddle him up and take him off to Center Parcs for a nice weekend away from it all. But maybe that’s just me.” Matthew Todd | Attitude Magazine (x)

“Vol.3 Nø 1 is very much inspired by iconic Hollywood with a British swagger and touch of rebellion. Rupert, in this new light is the perfect headliner. He looks like a young Christopher Walken.” Sally Edwards | BLAG Magazine (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Chuck Taylor (II)

"I’m very excited that the Chuck Taylors are back" "I lost one of them, that’s why they kind of… they don’t match" E!News Interview with Ben Lyons (x)

"How many pairs of trainers have you got?" "I’ve got one pair of shoes, generally. I find a pair and I just wear them until they fall off me."More Magazine (2010)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Daniel Radcliffe

"If we were mates with Daniel Radcliffe, we’d steal his stuff and sell it on eBay. Ever nicked his things?" "No, but he’s stolen loads from me." Rupert Grint (More Magazine 2010)

“Me and Rupert, we have ‘surreal’ conversations.”Daniel Radcliffe (x)

“Dan is the one who is very driven; he’s ambitious and he’s knows there’s quite a few things down the road. I am a little bit more laid back.” Rupert Grint (x)

“I like Rupert, I get on with Rupert, we are friends and when we are on set together we have a good laugh. We don’t spend much time together off set – because there isn’t any! Those of you who are familiar with GoF will know that there are many scenes in which Ron doesn’t appear. Also, I am still at school and when I am not on set filming, I am in tutoring, and when Rupert is not needed for filming, he is not in the studio. But, we are good friends and any suggestion otherwise is wrong.” Daniel Radcliffe (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Cherrybomb (I)

"It was quite scary. It felt like a massive step. Filming in a different country, with a different accent, a crew I didn’t know… it was a little bit daunting." Rupert Grint (x)

"Ron Weasley was quickly forgotten when we started to rehearse and shoot the film. He instantly became Malachy and I was really impressed because it must be hard to shake a character you’ve been playing for almost half your life." Kimberley Nixon | Cherrybomb cast (x)

"I think there was a reasonably immediate spark off as soon as we met, I mean the banter started up pretty quickly. People strike a dynamic, and it was similar because it was me being mouthy, Rupert being lovely and sweet and himself, and Kim in the middle telling me how much of a tosser I am." Robert Sheehan | Cherrybomb cast (x)

“I have absolute no doubt that Rupert’s gonna have a fantastic career. He’s such a talented guy, I mean, he’s such an instinctive, intelligent actor and we sort or knew that was going to be the case and we really were blown away by his amazing performances as Malachy. So, I think, you know, the sky’s the limit for Rupert. I think it’s going to be very exciting to watch him do just that.” Lisa Barros D’Sa | Cherrybomb Director (x)

A ➟ Z of Rupert Grint; Friends, Family, and Fans

"I suppose I could live that kind of flash life. People stereotype child actors and kind of expects you to go off the rails a bit, be a bit crazy, but that’s not really happened yet. I’ve got a big family so that helps, and they live really close to the studios so it’s just so much easier” Rupert Grint (The Sunday Times, 2010)

“And Rupert’s very close to his family, like Ron.” David Heyman | Harry Potter Producer (x)

“For me it was crazy to see how much Rupert means for the young ones around the world. Never experienced fans like that! 300 persons or more outside the hotel. Wow! … Again Rupert is very friendly and takes time to talk to a lot of them, taking pictures … etc. Impressive!Stig Henrik Hoff | Into The White cast (x)

“Rupert Grint is exactly like his character Ron, in that they are both incredibly funny, friendly, and loyal.Matthew Lewis (x)

“I think I’m quite savvy when it comes to understanding girls. I’ve got quite a lot of sisters, so I think that helps me a little bit.” Rupert Grint (x)
