Rupert Grint Brings Ice Cream Truck to Last Day of “Deathly Hallows” Filming


Jun 13, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

A bit more today on the final day of filming for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” comes again from the Twitter account of actor Warwick Davis. The Professor Flitwick and Griphook actor tweeted that Rupert Grint, who portrays the character of Ron Weasley, arrived on set in his much talked about ice cream van, and served the cast and crew with frozen treats. His tweet reads:

For the last day on ‘HP’, Rupert ‘Mr Whippy’ Grint arrived in his ice cream van & served up 99s for cast & crew… It brought a smile to everyones face on what was a very emotional day. It was a thrill to see a teaser for ‘Deathly Hallows’ too. :)

The photo of Mr. Grint’s ice cream van can be seen right here.

Avatar Imagedoxycide says: I love how to this day, after ten years of the HP movies, whenever they mention an actor's name they are always sure to comment on what character that person portrays. Somehow, I think after ten years its common knowledge that Rupert Grint plays Ron and so forth.

The fact that it's pink with a Mr. Whippy sign is just, well, the cherry on top. He might be the coolest of the cast after all. Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: So nice to see a person with some money not buying a Mercedes, Lambroghini, or the like. Some people really get it and others don't.

I'd like a 99 with chocolate sprinkles please :)Avatar ImageRoseann says: That is so awesome that he ownes an ice cream truck. He should do that on Haloween just go to some random streets and sell ice cream or just give them away and see how many people recognize him. Or he could just drive it and have another cast member do the hand outs how funny would that be.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: He's too cool :') That is such a nice and memorable thing to do on your last day :) Maybe he hoped they would get distracted by the yummy 99's and stretch out filming for another day :)Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: And that actually is THE coolest ice cream van I've EVER seen XDAvatar ImageGryffindor Cutie says: Mr. Whippy!
