Rupert Grint on Cover of April Edition of Blag Magazine

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 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 and!

It’s nice that Rupert is finally getting some press coverage that is more than a few sentences. You see everything about Dan and Emma but it’s rare for a huge layout for Rupert.

I don’t think he has lost weight, I think the picture gives that impression because his facial features look very set. I love when he looks like that in pictures!! ^ That’s when I like him the most. The hair slicked back allows us to see his eyebrows, which are a bit prominent, so his stare looks more penetrating. And I think he must be wearing some contour powder under his cheekbones to emphasize their shape. His crooked smile marks the “smile” creases that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, making him look all the mroe sexy ^ Also, the lightning plays with the shadows, so all the prominent features af his face are more defined. Like I said before, I LOVE it when his facial features stand out like this, he looks so manly!! LOL!! XD I can’t believe I just wrote that!! XD

Nothing against Rupert (i like this guy) but this photo is horrible. I have a small knowledge about photos and this… Plus he looks like he hasn’t slept for ages. Hmm, some more photoshop?

Guess That Book

For a split second, both Harry and Riddle, wand still raised, stared at it. Then, without thinking, without considering, as though he had meant to do it all along, Harry seized the basilisk fang on the floor next to him and plunged it straight into the he
