The annual charitable telethon of Red Nose Day took place today in the UK and Harry Potter actors Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) were on hand to help "transform the lives of poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa."  Mr. Grint and Mr. Felton took part in a special comedic sketch, along with many famous performers from the UK including Lenny Henry, George Michael, Richard Curtis, and many more.  The video of the sketch has been released on the RedNoseDay YouTube channel and can be viewed via this link.


Thanks to Nelly and Sarah for owling!

Yay I’m glad this got a mention, it’s a great charity. Though Red Nose Day is not an annual event.

I absolutely loved the Doctor Who mini-episode. It was hilarious. I saw it the moment it was posted online since I live in the US

Oh wow, the final total for the main Red Nose Day event is £74,360,207 ($120,723,795.28)! That’s roughly £17,000,000 more than last year, and they’re hoping for that number to climb.

That was great!! I think both Tom and Rupert should be guest hosts on Saturday Night LIve!! Maybe if we all tweeted SNL, they would consider it.

Red Nose Day is every 2 years not annually. “We need to help people in such abject poverty that words like Quidditch and Hogwarts mean nothing to them”

It was awesome! I saw Rupert Grint towards the start of the sketch, but Tom Felton appears really unexpectedly in the scene!

I think, David Tennant was involved in this event as well. How wonderful to raise so much money for a worthy cause!
