“I like this photo. It was taken, if I’m not mistaken, while rehearsing a scene where Alan clipped me and Rupert round the back of a head with a book. We all, apparently, found this hard to do without laughing.” [x]
Read Moonwalkers reviews. I don't read a bad review about Rupert's act. He was defined "perfect" "brilliant" " so far from Ron". He is the best. He is brilliant in a War film and in a Comedy
The audience liked/likes Moonwalkers, I haven’t seen a lot of negative tweets posted by people who saw the movie. For the “professional” critics, I would say it’s 50/50, half of the reviews written by journalists were harsh about “Moonwalkers”. Though it’s true Rupert got a lot of critical acclaim for his portrayal of Johnny.
“ I am devastated to
hear about the passing of Alan Rickman, I feel so privileged to have had
the opportunity to work with him on numerous occasions – Even though he
has gone – I will always hear his voice. My thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.”- Rupert Grint
