Weird, Rupert bought an ice cream truck?

Avatar Image says:

I loved that! That’s great.

The part abpout Lavender Brown and Ron- ‘Yeah they kiss a little bit’- is the understatement of the century.

Avatar Image says:

oh, Rupert is so shy :)

Avatar Image says:

“No More Wimpy Weasley!” YoooHoooooooo! yes! :D

Finally some canon Ron :D I just hope there was some more Ron in the first place to notice how canon he’s become! But no matter, no matter, it’s a start! :D

SUE SUE SUE!! You can delete this when your done reading-IM SURE YOU GOT THE PRESS RELEASE-JK ROWLING READING WILL BE LIVE ON INTERNET AND THEN ON JULY 30TH SHE IS DOING A LIVE WEBCHAT FOR A WHOLE HOUR!!! OMG!!

Avatar Image says:

This should really give Rupert and Emma a feel for the worst of Hollywood culture—loved Rupert and Emma, can’t stand that airhead who hosts the “9’!

Avatar Image says:

“No More Wimpy Weasley” – Yup, that pretty much sums the whole thing up. _^

Yay for Rupert getting in an interview! He’s kind of soft-spoken and shy, but I think it’s charming. I’m glad they upgraded his character from stomachache comic-relief sideshow to Gryffindor-Brave Canon!Ron in the movie. That made me happy. He can finally put away the Pepto-Bismol ^_

I’m with Naria, it’s about time Rupert got a chance to speak!!!!!

The “Unscripted” conversation with the trio is SO MUCH BETTER than this!

I’ve noticed that fewer web sites are making videos available for download. I understand that they are trying to generate traffic, but I’d much rather be able to download them. :-)Sad.

Avatar Image says:

Heck yes! No more wimpy Weasley!! That’s awsome!

Avatar Image says:

She was totally flirting with Rupert! I can’t blame her.

Avatar Image says:

I think Rupert has as much chance to speak as any of the others. I get the impression though it’s his choice not to. He comes across as shy. But given the nature of promoting films, you need to be able to speak articulatly. Dan also comes across as shy and nervous and some times needs to calm down, but i bet that Warner Brothers daily thank the good lord that it’s Dan who is HP, because he is a fantastic ambassador for the films, for warner brothers and for the trio. I think if you were to push Rupert to the forefront it would be a role he wouldn’t enjoy. In some ways the other two,who after all know him better than us, protect him.

Avatar Image says:

i loved when she said she was leaving and he’s all “are you serious?” gosh, he’s awesome. the only really annoying thing was she said “over there” 5368235 times. :]

Avatar Image says:

She was flirting with him a lot!!!!! WOW He is so HOT!!

Avatar Image says:

I agree that the host was an airhead! Ahh. Emma looked extremely annoyed the whole time lol. But still.. it was okay

Avatar Image says:

I’m not totally sold on the idea that Rupert is shy. He’s not articulate (lack of vocabulary and all) so he doesn’t have the confidence to talk about himself but that doesn’t make him shy. Plus, being interviewed by the Press could make anyone nervous. Dan’s nervous too but he has the social skills to camouflage that.

Avatar Image says:

A Rupert interview to satisfy his fans! lol. I’m so lost in this avalanche of interviews of the trio that I can’t understand why the Rupertfans would still complain that he is not getting enough publicity. I’m still sorting out the dozens of videos to watch cause the sites just post a link and I can’t download. Does anyone know which video interview is it where Emma said she fancied Dan?

Avatar Image says:

That’s so true. Rupert got his share of the cheers and the interviews but they still keep complain that Rupert’s ignored. It’s probably because Rupe doesn’t give very good interviews and ther ones he did aren’t picked up by other media outlets. sheesh, he just opened the first HP store and that should have gotten some headlines but eh… Now if it is Dan who opened that store as is befitting cause he’s Harry POtter.. but I’m not complaining. Let Rupert have more of the limelight so the whining will stop.

Avatar Image says:

So true Jain and Ursula. They STILL moan about lack of Rupert yet I’ve seen just as much coverage of him as with Dan & Emma. I mean, this is supposed to be about Harry Potter not Ron Weasley, he might be hotter and a better actor but he’s not the main character and I believe the least important character out of the three.

And I also think Rupert isn’t as shy as he makes out, you can see how much he loves the female admiration, a lot more than Dan does. I actually think Dan is more insecure than Rupert is to be honest.

Avatar Image says:

There hasn’t been a single post in this thread whinging about Rupert not getting enough airtime. Yet there has just been four posts in a row whinging about these non-existant posts. It’s pretty clear to me, and anyone else with eyes, who the real whiners are.

Avatar Image says:

You know whats reaaalllllly weird. I’ve always been a Dan fan girl (cant help myself, he’s hot!), but Ruperts smile is really growing on me. He has an adorable smile, what in the world is that about? On another note, I love to see how different they all are. Dans very articulate and deep, Emmas bubbley and happy and Ruperts low key and cool, he sort goes with the flow. All very different.

Avatar Image says:

Sarah, Dans said a couple of times that he’s “Rubbish” around girls, he gets tongue tied and nervouse. Rupert is so low key that he just lets the “Cool” radiate off of him. I think it’s adorable.

Avatar Image says:

Sorry, another post, but yesterday Rupert was on the Fuse channel. He did a show called “The Sause”. He was very good and funny. Check it out.

Avatar Image says:

Rupert has done quite a number of interviews. Just look them up on YouTube. Just because Leaky hasn’t posted all of them doesn’t mean he’s not been given the chance to speak. I wish people would STOP patronizing Rupert like that. He speaks when he wants to, and he HAS been in Canada and New York doing some HP promotion. Look around a bit more, better yet, try his fansite.

Dan and Emma probably do get slightly more attention but that’s because Dan is the lead male and Emma is the lead female. That will never change SO PLEASE STOP WHINGING ABOUT IT!

I agree with what kerri said. except I’ve never really been big on dan radcliffe. I’ve always had a huge obsession with rupert.

I think that no one can really say what Rupert, Dan, or Emma are really like from what you see in interviews or read anywhere. Sure, you could proabably get an idea. If I knew them they’d probably be different from what I think they are. They’re all really great though and I love the trio.

Avatar Image says:

i partially agree with s. benj that it is patronizing to rupert in assuming that he is unable to speak for himself. i think he is a very talented and personable young man, and though he may never achieve “mainstream” or “superstar” status , if he continues to pursue acting, i think he would more than likely fit into a “cult status” type of category (ex. steve beshumi, christopher walken)which i think would be more suited to rupert’s personality and unwillingness to claim the limelight. that being said, i can also understand how some of his fans feel that he seems to get shafted in the media and some hp sites, but then again he does not have, powerful, well-orgazized machine backing him or his career. he has done really well, considering that he comes from a rather humble background compared to his co-stars. and he will probably do just fine.

i also feel that dan seems to be a decent and savvy young man, and emma is lovely and seems to have a good head on her shoulders. both will go far i’m sure.

This may have been true of Dan who is given an A list treatment by WB but that is not true for Ema. She doesn’t have a Watson Inc planning her career moves and yet she is more popular than Rupert and has more media coverage. I guess what some people just don’t ewant to accept the fact that Dan and Emma are more media savvy. They get as nervous and as shy as Rupert but that doesn’t prevent them from coming across as well spoken, educated people with enough charm to knock off the socks of even cynical journalists. It helps of course that they are also good looking and the media loves glamorous people.

ursula: you can try the Access Hollywood video interview. Emma was shown those Details pic and she said the pics made her look at Dan in a new light and she kinda fancy him now. cute interview…

Avatar Image says:

Forget about whining. Rupert has more interviews this time and even went to Canada alone. He also opened that HP store alone and is more open now in his interviews. See what more publicity can do? Rupert just appeared on the top ten of Yahoo’s top movie cast for the first time ever! It was always Dan and Emma in the past but now Rupert is there. whoot! Way to go ice cream man. He must have acquired a publicict and stylist cause his image is so much more adorable now. I’m glad they are letting him do things on his own. It is only when he is with Dan and Emma (especially Dan) that he’s kinda overshadowed.

Avatar Image says:

did anyone else think that it was kind of funny that a couple times, rupert would cross his arms like, ‘you’re standing too close to me, please stop gesticulting in my direction, get out of my bubble’? that host definitely had an assumed familiarity issue.
