Rupert Grint Speaks to BBC About Mojo

Whew! While the whirlwind of press reviews continue to flood in, a new article has appeared online by way of BBC, featuring new comments from Rupert on his experience in Mojo so far.

"It's great that for my stage debut I'm such a long way from anything I've done until now," Rupert Grint says.

"I've been offered stage things before and I always hesitated: I thought I wasn't ready. I didn't know Jez's play at all so it was a big leap of faith - but that also goes for Ian Rickson (the director). But we've had the luxury of 19 previews to get it right and it's been an amazing experience."

Speaking of the differing dynamic between stage and film, and the intensity of being in front of a live audience for two and a half hours each night, Rupert says:

"Well that's what the rehearsals do for you. It's more intense and deeper than in the cinema. In film you dip in and out, with big distractions in between: you don't go into much detail. Theatre is exhausting in a way film-making usually isn't. But it's also really rewarding."

Mojo: Opening Night Press Reviews and Images

After two and a half long weeks of previews, the press' reviews for Mojo are finally here!

Opening night seems to have gone superbly and reviews are flowing in from some of the West End's toughest critics.  We've summarised them for you below, as well as their awarded star rating.

"But in fact all but Grint, who is making his professional theatre debut but absolutely deserves to be in their company, have substantial stage experience, so the play isn't compromised." - **** from Mark Shenton, London Theatre

"...the show looks set to become a smash hit all over again, with a cast that includes Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame in his stage debut, the mesmerising Ben Whishaw, and Daniel Mays, an actor of compelling virtuosity who is at the top of his game here.” - **** from The Telegraph

You won't find much better ensemble acting than this, nor a play that so effectively punctures the pretensions of a hermetic gangland culture.” - **** from The Guardian

"Rupert Grint (Ron from the Harry Potter films) makes an assured stage debut as Sweets, a pill-popping, pill-dealing kid with a hollow confidence. His opening dialogue with Daniel Mays’s garrulous, sweaty Potts is played out at a beguilingly brisk comic pitch." - **** from The London Times

"Unmissable." - ***** from WhatsonStage

"As Sweets, Rupert Grint makes an impressive stage debut as sidekick’s sidekick..." - **** from TimeOut

"Rupert Grint thankfully cuts the mustard in his stage debut as Sweets. Vaguely reminiscent of Harry Potter’s Ron, but with more pills and swearing; gormless and always slightly wired. Grint is blessed with natural comic timing that cannot be taught – he is almost constantly on stage and manages humour even when he’s not saying anything." - BargainTheatreland

"Rupert Grint, making his stage debut, holds his own as drug-addled fool Sweets." - The London Evening Standard

The Express | The Arts Desk | Radio Times | Official London Theatre | The Daily Mail

Our congratulations to the entire cast and crew!

If you haven't seen it yet, tickets are still available here and our Mojo Christmas Giveaway (where you can win not one, not two but THREE tickets to see the show on Xmas Eve!) is here.

New Stills from Enemy of Man!

Two new images have today been released from Rupert's upcoming project, "Enemy of Man".

Although he's now starred in a couple of war-themed films, we can't help but feel that there's something distincly more mature about the direction of this movie.

Though information regarding the extent of Rupert's involvement is still tightly held, we do know that his character Rosse is a Scottish nobleman and close friend to Macbeth.

The director has said of the project, "I'm stripping back the dialogue and cranking up the action for this timeless tale of war, regicide, betrayal and ultimately revenge." - meaning these may not be the only shots we see of Rupert in action!

Starring alongside acclaimed actor Sean BeanEnemy of Man will begin filming in January next year, once Rupert finishes his current run on the West End for Mojo.

Happy Birthday Aubrey!

Our very lovely and incredibly dedicated music manager Aubrey (also known as Aub) is today celebrating her birthday!

Since the music section launched three years ago, Aubrey has helped to bring great new artists to the site including Rachael Gallman, Nick Wilson and, a particular favourite from earlier this month, Jaron Ferrer. Seriously, you gotta check Jaron out.

Aubrey (along with staffer Dove) also interviewed Rupert at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida, round robining him about art, music and more. Check out their "Lightning Round" below:-

We're so lucky to have you, Aubrey - thank you for all you do! From all of the staff and fans at, have a wonderful day!!
