Grint Interviews

Thanks to our Order Partner, RupertGrint.net, we can let you know about a fun new interview with Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) in today's Telegraph. The British newspaper asked Mr. Grint about his best and worst holiday experiences, from the best hotel to the biggest packing mistake he's made in the past. The actor also spoke about recent holiday to Blackpool with Oliver Phelps (George Weasley):

Q:What do you need for a perfect holiday?
A: Being ginger and pale-skinned, I don’t really get a tan, so sitting on the beach doesn’t do it for me. I like activity-based holidays where I’m not going to fry, which is why I’ve really got into rally car driving – my brother James is an aspiring driver. I recently went on holiday to Blackpool with Oliver Phelps, who plays one of the Weasley twins. We both play golf – I’ve got a handicap of 13, which is not bad – and there’s a really good golf course in the area. I think it was quite surreal for people to see two Harry Potter actors walking down the promenade – they kept stopping dead in their tracks to do a double take.

The full interview can be found via this link. Thanks again to RupertGrint.net!

That’s great! I went golfing once my dad let me drive the cart…I was just getting the hang of it when we went around a sharp turn right beside a cliff and I ran into a boulder…Least I didn’t go over the cliff!

This was an enjoyable read, mainly because the questions are so different from the usual stuff we see. But I have to say, the answers don’t really “sound” like Rupert. I’m wondering if these are his exact words or if someone sort of edited and “polished” them up. Well, either way, it was definitely a fun interview. :)

Rupert Grint is so cute. I can’t blame people for gawking at Ron & George Weasley strolling by. Wouldn’t you?
