Dear Rupert Grint,
On behalf of Hufflepuffs and those open-minded fans everywhere who are not ashamed of where the sorting hat may place you, this editor heartily applauds you loudly for the comments contained in an interview with Time Out NewYork as follows:

Would you rather be the hero or the sidekick, generally speaking?
I’ve
always liked the character of Ron. He was my favorite when I was
reading the books. I’ve always felt a kind of connection to him,
because I’ve found certain similarities between us. Just little things,
like us both being ginger, and I have a few brothers and sisters as
well. I thought he was funny in the books as well. So, yeah, it doesn’t
bother me.

What’s the best way to duck a mob of screaming young girls?
I
don’t know, really. It doesn’t happen much here. It’s mainly when we’re
in America when they’re much more crazy and forward. Mainly it’s just
people staring. It took me a while to adjust to that, because it is
sort of a strange experience, being known when you go out.

There’s
an online quiz that sorts you into Harry Potter houses, and my
brother’s friend”a big, burly dude”became distraught after he was put
in Hufflepuff. Didn’t come out of his room all weekend. Overreaction?

No way! [Laughs] That really affected him? That is so weird. I probably wouldn’t mind.

Let’s repeat that last part: “I probably wouldn’t mind.” While it is true Rupert you are probably a Gryffindor, this comment reflects the best of the spirit of the books and Albus Dumbledore; bravo!

Love, from the House of Hufflepuff :)

Thank you! :)Avatar ImageJaneth says: LOL So that's the sound that woke me up? Sue squeeing?Avatar ImageQuotidias says: Sue probably screamed when she read this article, then squeed like crazy. Can't say I blame her, being a Hufflepuff myself. Correct me if I'm wrong, I seem to recall an interview Rupert did a couple of years ago where he said if he was sorted he'd probably be a Hufflepuff, so I'm guessing this is why he wouldn't have a problem with it. Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Oh I love Rupert!Avatar Imagesqueakerteacher says: that's cool it makes me smileAvatar Imagebudgie says: Lots of us agree that Hufflepuffs have a lot of virtues.Avatar ImagePoufsouffle says: :) That made me really happy. :)Avatar ImageMera004 says: Hahaha, that's awesome! You're so adorable, Sue! Avatar ImageTamyris says: That is why he is THE Rupert Grint! He is the best and I would love him even if he was a slytherin. I think I would love a bad version of Rupert. Gotta love bad boys.Avatar ImageUntitled says: Haha, thats pretty cool of him to say that. Most people really don't like Hufflepuff for whatever reason, but he supports it. Go Rupert! Spread the house-equality-love!Avatar ImageQuestyourdreams says: The average american fan-girl makes the rest of us american fan-girls that may be quiet and shy, look bad. lol! Please don't take that the wrong way if you are the type that screams! It's funny to think someone could get so worked up over being placed in Hufflepuff! lol I mean, my favorite house is Slytherin, but if I get placed in Hufflepuff, thats fine, I mean, I don't hate any of the other houses! lolAvatar Imagetwiwizardjedi says: Hufflepuff for the win! Yay!Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: yay for Hufflepuff!Avatar Imageblue4t says: Great answers. He's such a cool guy. Hey, Grint, we can be Gryffinpuffs together.Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Yeah true.

She was sorted into Hufflepuff and wanted to be a Slytherin. I've tried to convince her, saying how nice Hufflepuffs are and that Tonks was one, so she feels alot better about it now. She's actually become very fond of her house and defends it to everyone! YAY HUFFLEPUFF!!!Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Woohoo Rupert !
