The End of an Era: Thank you, Steph

Goodbyes are rubbish, aren’t they?

There’s a small handful of people RupertGrint.net has grown up with over years. 

Ones who have helped to, meticulously, guide both fans of Rupert and the staff here alike, through the siege of Potter promotion for each film, and who have an encyclopedic and endless knowledge of the last 12 years.

Ones who are, by all intent and purposes, the invisible support which means everything runs smoothly.

We are so sad, today, to be saying farewell to one of them.

--------------------

Steph and I opened our first Rupert fansite, rupertonline.net, together back in 2004.

After about three weeks, Steph was tasked with the general management of the site, entrusted with reporting the daily news and more. 

She was 14 at the time, and lended her guidance to both RupertOnline and, ultimately, RupertGrint.net for the next 8 years.

Looking back, if it had been anyone but Steph, that decision might have gone dreadfully awry.

It’s an understatement to thank her for her dedication to Rupert and his fans. And for knowing things when the rest of us...really didn’t. 

(In one of our earlier site interviews, she posed a question for Rupert about past filming schedules...and ended up correcting him.)

--------------------

Thank you, Steph, for being one of the original ginger musketeers.

That's a lifelong membership which can’t be broken.

Enemy of Man to Start Filming in January


The Hollywood Reporter
has today confirmed that production on Rupert's next film project, a reworking of Shakespere's tradgedy Macbeth, will begin in January.

In Enemy of Man, Rupert is rumoured to be taking the role of Rosse.

When asked about the part last year, Rupert commented:

"It's a period, kind of epic, version with horses and Scotland. I think it’ll be really cool. I get to ride a horse, and it’s going to be quite gory. A gory film...I’m looking forward to that."

If true to the story, Macbeth's cousin, Ross, is a Scottish noble who eventually turns on Macbeth, choosing to side with Malcolm and the English forces. Sean Bean will play the titular role of Macbeth, with Harry Potter alum Dave Legeno (Fenrir Greyback) also cast as Angus.

You can see more promotional images, taken from the trailer filmed earlier this year in Buckinghamshire, here.

Rupert Grint in FHM: Our Ginger Hero

As we reported yesterday, Rupert is featured this month in a stunning new shoot and interview for FHM's A/W 2013 Style Manual.



Throughout the 12 page spread, Rupert reflects on how Potter shaped his life and shares his excitement for next month's appearance in Mojo, saying:

"I think I need to do it," he admits. "It's real acting and there's something quite thrilling about only having one shot, not loads of takes. That excites me."


Also given is some detail on his latest 'project':

"I'm trying to put a slide on the side of my flat - it's got a roof garden and the slide will go down to the floor below," he says. "But it's not up yet. I've had some complaints."

FHM is on sale now, thanks to Rupert Grint Peruvain Fans, we'll have the rest of the images in the gallery shortly!

After wishing Rupert a very happy birthday, we have a present for you! MTV Mobile News has released a first look into the film CBGB. It is one of the "drawer dropping" scenes he mentioned in the interview we had with him in Savanna, Ga. last year to prove his character is a real ginger.

Enjoy!

Happy 25th Birthday Rupert Grint!
Inexplicably, today is Rupert Grint's 25th birthday.
 
Quarter of a century? I'm not sure how that has happened, but we're moving into an exciting second quarter of a century, which will start off with his first West End stage role, and here at RG.net we could not be more excited. 
 
So, we hope you have the happiest of birthdays, Rupert, and we have a rather lovely video to wish you the same...
