Rupert Grint carries the Olympic torch


This afternoon, Rupert had the honour of running with the 2012 Olympic torch as the flame makes its way closer to the Olympic Stadium and Friday's Opening Ceremony. 

Rupert spoke to BBC News about the "overwhelming" experience, and said that he hopes to remember it for ever. You can watch the video here.

RG.net's Lauren battled the sticky heat of an English summer to watch Rupert - in his ever-faithful Chucks - run with the torch from its afternoon start-point of Middlesex University. Judging by the amount of people calling his name, Rupert, rather than the torch, was the biggest draw for the crowds.

Harry Potter fansite SnitchSeeker have some fantastic photos, which can be seen below. Just click the thumbnails for larger versions. Thanks, SS!
