Grint Interviews

Thanks to our Order Partner,, 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!

I would do a double take too if I saw Rupert and Oliver just strolling through a golf course.

Ol’ Rupe is becoming quite the ‘land baron’ as well… Seems to have taken up buying mansions, and real estate as a hobby…

I know what he means, sunburn is a giantly annoying something to keep in mind with pale skin and ginger hair. I just can’t stop loving him.
By the way I would most definitely stop dead if I saw him walking around, then realize who it was and run to catch up!
