Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) was interviewed this weekend on BBC Radio 2's Dermot O'Leary show. You can listen to the show again here on iPlayer at 1 hour 15 minutes in or, alternatively, you can find audio links of the interview for download at this link courtesy of our Order Partner

In the interview, Grint discusses "Cherrybomb," filming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," music festivals and much more. Grint also spoke briefly about the actors he has worked with over the years on the Harry Potter films:

You look at the list of people on Harry Potter, like Alan Rickman, and just everyone, every British actor, has done a bit in Harry Potter. Obviously when I was younger I didn't really know who these people were.
[On Bill Nighy (Rufus Scrimgeour)] I think he wore his own suits [in "Deathly Hallows"]!
Thanks again to our Order Partner for the heads up!

We can also let you know that Maggie Smith (Professor McGonagall) will be appearing on GMTV tomorrow (Tuesday) morning on British television channel ITV. Additionally, Rupert Grint will be making an appearance on GMTV on the 23rd of April between 7am and 9.25am to talk about his new film "Cherrybomb", which will be released in the U.K. that day. Many thanks for emailing in, Lisa!

I will listen to the interview later when I am finished with my homework! That said, one cannot help but wonder about the attire of Rufus Scrimgeour now that we have learned that Bill Nighy chose his own clothing for the role…

I love Rupert’s interviews, he’s such a “keep calm and carry on” kind of guy! He has that peaceful tone of voice wich makes you feel like you’re talking to a very easy-going person… I just love him. And I’d love to see Maggie tomorrow. Too bad we don’t have GMTV here in Brazil. Oh well. Just one more thing to youtube!!!

Glad to see that Rupert’s out promoting his new films. Seems he never got the chance much with HP. He does seem to be a ‘laid-back’ kind of guy which is really great. He has a wonderful smile…we need to see it more!

I hope Leaky gets a copy of Dame Maggie’s interview. She is my favorite actress by far. She has so much acting ability, one lift of her right eyebrow can impart information! .
