27 January

Rupert’s “Cherrybomb” co-star, Kat Kirk, gives a brief interview speaking about his role in the film, saying:

What’s your opinion on Rupert’s acting in this film?
Kat: Rupert played the part of Malachy well. He’s a very talented guy and really brought Malachy to life. I don’t want to give too much away though!

Did he nail the accent according to you?
Kat: The Northern Irish accent is a tricky one because it can be really difficult to replicate and I imagine this could have caused some alarm. I remember when I first met Rupert and Kimberley, I told them as long as you pretend you’re a pirate when pronouncing the letter “r” then there shouldn’t be a problem! I like to think they took my advice, I thought it was pretty good!

28 January

It is announced that "Cherrybomb" will be screening at the Jameson Dublin Film Festival in Ireland on February 20.

The Hollywood Reporter asks Rupert on his thoughts regarding filming for Deathly Hallows, to which he comments:

Fourteen months for Part 1 and Part 2, more or less back-to-back. It's going to be long, but it's going to be good I think, I really liked the book and the script," he said. "It's going to be quite a thing when it's over because it'll be half my life exactly. I think I will miss it, because I've had some good times on it.

18 February

MTV publishes a teaser for their set visit to Half-Blood Prince, featuring a new photo of Rupert as Ron, and quote from Jessie Cave:

26 February

It is annouced that Rupert will grace the April 2009 cover of BLAG Magazine:

In an accompanying press release, Rupert says:

“I really enjoy it because it is a totally different world. I think we do get a bit spoilt on Harry Potter. I really prefer the pace of these sorts of films – on this one you do maybe seven scenes a day – so it moves really quickly. It’s exciting.”

8 March

Total Film releases a one page interview with Rupert, briefly discussing his role in Deathly Hallows.  On the conclusion of the series, Rupert says:

"I really liked it, it was a good ending. It was not what I expected, actually. For some reason, I thought at least one of me, Dan, Emma was going to not make it. But I think it's going to be cool, the whole 20 years later thing. It should be fun. They'll age us up."

It's Only a Play - Full Press Release






" I T ' S  O N L Y  A  P L A Y "



New York, NY– Producers Tom Kirdahy, Roy Furman, and Ken Davenport announced today that Rupert Grint, internationally known for his star-making, decade-long portrayal of Ron Weasley in the blockbuster 8-part Harry Potter film franchise, will make his Broadway debut as acclaimed young director Frank Finger in the star-studded Broadway production of Terrence McNally's uproarious comedy, It's Only A Play.

In a brief statement, Rupert Grint said, "I'm thrilled to be making my Broadway debut alongside this amazing cast and creative team."

As previously announced, Academy Award® winner F. Murray Abraham, Tony Award® winner Matthew Broderick, Tony Award® winner Stockard Channing, Tony Award® winner Nathan Lane, Emmy Award® winner Megan Mullally, and newcomer Micah Stock, will also star in It's Only a Play featuring direction by Tony Award® winner Jack O’Brien. It's Only a Play will play a limited 17-week engagement at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street) beginning fall 2014, with an opening night set for Thursday, October 9.

Tickets are available by visiting For groups of 20 or more, call 855-329-2932. Tickets will be available at the Schoenfeld Box Office (236 West 45th Street) starting July 31. For more information,

In It's Only a Play, it’s opening night of Peter Austin's (Matthew Broderick) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his best friend, a television star (Nathan Lane), his fledgling producer (Megan Mullally), his erratic leading lady (Stockard Channing), his wunderkind director (Rupert Grint), an infamous drama critic (F. Murray Abraham), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock) on his first night in Manhattan. It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender — and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.

Mr. McNally—a four-time Tony® Award winning playwright—recently celebrated the premiere of his 20th Broadway production, Mothers and Sons, which marks his 50th year on Broadway. Mothers and Sons was nominated for Best Play at the 2014 Tony® Awards, and currently plays through June 22, 2014 at the Golden Theatre.

RUPERT GRINT showed an interest in acting from an early age, appearing in productions put on by his school and local theatre group. 2001 saw Rupert make his professional acting debut when he won the role of Ron Weasley in the adaptation of J.K.Rowlings’ popular book Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. This performance gained Rupert three nominations, two of which he won; one for Special Achievement and the other the Young Actor’s Award. Following his success in the first Harry Potter film, Rupert starred as a young madcap professor in Thunderpants (2002) alongside Simon Callow, Stephen

Fry and Paul Giamatti. Rupert then returned to his acclaimed role of Ron Weasley in the adaptations of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007). Rupert’s return to the role of Ron landed him more award nominations and leading film magazine Empire presented Rupert and his co-stars, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, with the prestigious Outstanding Contribution Award in recognition of their performances in all of the Harry Potter films.

In between Harry Potter films, Rupert focused on expanding his acting to other roles, appearing as the voice of Peter Pan in BBC documentary Happy Birthday, Peter Pan (2005) with an all-star cast including Johnny Depp, Dustin Hoffman and Cat Deeley. Rupert also starred in films Driving Lessons (2006), which went on to win 3 of 5 award nominations, and the independent British film Cherrybomb (2009) which screened to critical acclaim at film festivals in the UK and Europe. Rupert then went on to star in the UK comedy Wild Target which was also released in the USA in October 2010. Rupert was excitedly nominated for ‘Performance of the year’ at the 2010 National Movie Awards and in the same year it was widely reported that Martin Scorsese, the legendary movie-maker said of Rupert "I thought he (Grint) was a great actor in the Harry Potter movies. In a lot of scenes, the boy stole the show.”

In 2010 Rupert finished filming the final two parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Part 1 was released in November 2010 with part 2 out July 2011. 2011 also saw Rupert complete filming Cross of Honour in Norway, where he played the joint lead alongside David Kross and Lars Eidinger. This was released in the UK in October 2012. 2013 will then see Rupert star as Cheetah Chrome in CBGB (October) followed by The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman (November) where he stars opposite Shia LeBeouf. In October 2013, Rupert made his West End Debut in the highly antipicated revival of Jez Butterworth’s MOJO. He starred as Sweets, alongside Daniel Mays, Ben Whishaw, Colin Morgan, Brendan Coyle and Tom Rhys Harries. The role earned him a What’s On Stage Award for Best Newcomer.
