We have two bits of Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) news to share with you this evening.  First, Mr. Grint has been added to the list of Harry Potter cast members scheduled to appear at WB's Harry Potter Home Entertainment Celebration, formally titled the "Wizarding World of Harry Potter November Celebration," at Universal Orlando Resort.  As readers will recall, James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick, Griphook), Evanna Lynch ( Luna Lovegood), Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley), David Bradley (Argus Filch), Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown) have been previously scheduled to appear as part of the event which takes place at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter from November 11th - 13th.

Secondly, Mr. Grint was the recipient of the Best British Actor at tonight's BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards.  Nominated for his performance in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," the actor joked upon acceptance by saying, "I’m just the ginger one in the background, this shouldn’t be happening!"  A photo of Mr. Grint accepting the award may be seen via this link.

Many thanks to Hypable for the tip!

I’m really happy that he won that award because he deserves it! :) And it’s so cute to see how modest he is with that line about him being the ginger one in the background. He really shouldn’t think like that about himself, Harry Potter wouldn’t be the same without him!!

He’s such a lovely young man, and so modest, I’m really pleased he’s finally getting some recognition for his portrayal of Ron, he was excellent in both DH films and HBP too, in fact he’s always been my favourite because he seems so natural.

That’s amazing! But, Rupert, you’re not just the hot ginger like you say you are, you contribute so much to the Harry Potter franchise that you deserve the award! <333

Ron is no way the ‘ginger in the background’, nor is he the ‘sidekick’, he is one of the awesomnest fictional ginger’s ever! In fact he is THE awesomnest fictional ginger ever!
