February 26, 2009, 08:44 PM
Actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) will be gracing the cover of the April 2009 issue of Blag Magazine, which will also feature a lengthy interview and "20 page portfolio feature" with the young actor. Our Order Partner RupertGrint.net is reporting that this issue will feature extensive coverage of Mr. Grint's latest film, Cherrybomb, along with "Rupert in his first styled shoot at this stage in his career." The first image of Rupert from the magazine, the cover, can be viewed right here. Rupert is quoted in an accompanying press release as saying, in regards to working on Cherrybomb: “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.”
The press release continues with Blag Magazine co-creators Sally A. and Sarah J. Edwards discussing what to expect in this issue. Quoteage:
"For the first Bi-Annual, we wanted to present today’s most exciting and skilled talents in a classic way. It was a real honour to photograph Rupert in his first styled shoot at this stage in his career. It’s the icing on the cake for us." said Sarah.
"Vol.3 Nø 1 is very much inspired by iconic Hollywood with a British swagger and touch of rebellion. Rupert, in this new light is the perfect headliner." added Sally.
The April issue of Blag Magazine is due on newsstands soon.
Many thanks to RupertGrint.net
Marry Me, Rupert :d
I’ve never heard of blog magazine.
he is beautiful!! lol
I must buy!
Rupert looks weird…or foreign? in that pic. But I guess they weren’t aspiring for a handsome, glamorous look. At least there’s one good thing about this pic. Rupert looks soo totally different from Ron and that’s good, cause he’s trying for a career outside of Potter.
Mr Brightside, what is exactly what you don’t like about the picture?? I’m curious!! XD
haha I hardly even recognized him! He’s definitely a cutie, though I’m not sure he can pull of the heartthrob look.
hope i have the chance to see cherrybomb soon!
I wantthat magazine! Of course, first I’ll have to put down The Quibbler…

He looks so amazing. The best part is that they chose to do a spread on Rupert because he is up and coming talent.
People are finally starting to see what I’ve been saying for years. Rupert Grint is underrated, and he’s woefully underused in the HP series.
lookn’ good Rupert!
He looks like Howdy Doody :D
Exactly, Erudite. And it’s the WB’s loss really (and well, the HP movie goers as well, unfortunately). Despite giving him almost zero lines, giving his best lines to Hermione and reducing his role to comedic sidekick only (at least until OotP), the professional reviewers have always recognized the talent and potential. And now more people finally are starting to realize.
And I personally love the cover pic. He looks mighty fine, and still so different from ‘himself’ so to speak. It’s just another proof of how versatile he is, IMO.
