A bit more today on the final day of filming for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" comes again from the Twitter account of actor Warwick Davis.  The Professor Flitwick and Griphook actor tweeted that Rupert Grint, who portrays the character of Ron Weasley, arrived on set in his much talked about ice cream van, and served the cast and crew with frozen treats.  His tweet reads:

For the last day on 'HP', Rupert 'Mr Whippy' Grint arrived in his ice cream van & served up 99s for cast & crew... It brought a smile to everyones face on what was a very emotional day. It was a thrill to see a teaser for 'Deathly Hallows' too. :)
The photo of Mr. Grint's ice cream van can be seen right here.

That is so awesome that he ownes an ice cream truck. He should do that on Haloween just go to some random streets and sell ice cream or just give them away and see how many people recognize him. Or he could just drive it and have another cast member do the hand outs how funny would that be.

He’s too cool :‘) That is such a nice and memorable thing to do on your last day :)
Maybe he hoped they would get distracted by the yummy 99’s and stretch out filming for another day :)

Guess That Book

One floor down, pandemonium reigned. Somebody (and Harry had a very shrewd idea who) had set off what seemed to be an enormous crate of enchanted fireworks.
