MTV Feature on Rupert Grint in "Cherrybomb"

Grint Interviews

MTV has a new article online, featuring new photos and a new interview with actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) regarding “Cherrybomb.” In the piece, Rupert discusses taking on the role in the film he just wrapped, saying of the part ”... I’m playing such a cool, different character that I’ve never done before. It’s nice to get to act like you’re more confident, even for a little bit.”

The film requires a mature love scene which Rupert noted was “quite awkward to film, with the whole crew watching. They’re in bed!” But the real adult subject matter, Grint said, is what happens afterwards — which he didn’t want to spoil. “It gets quite serious,” he said. “It gets a bit crazy. Really violent and out of hand and lethal at the end.”

But delving into the more mature material wasn’t the hardest part for Grint — it was the Belfast accent. “It’s a mishmash of all sorts of different accents,” he said. “I got the vocal coach to make me a CD of all the lines and I put that on my iPod, and that really helps, to learn the vowel sounds. Otherwise, I’d pick it up from the crew, sine they were all local.”

As noted in the article, having completed work on Cherry Bomb in Ireland, Rupert is currently at work in London, England on another new film called “Wild Target.” Thanks to MTV for the heads up!

"I'm never wearing them," Ron was saying stubbornly. "Never."[br]"Fine," snapped Mrs. Weasley. "Go naked. And, Harry, make sure you get a picture of him. Goodness knows I could do with a laugh."
