Rupert Grint Chronology: January - March 2007

11 January 2007: Two new pictures of Rupert surface online. These pictures were actually taken on October 18th, 2006 at the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, where Rupert was doing promotional work for Driving Lessons.

16 January 2007: Driving Lessons gets a Brazilian release date. The film was originally planned for release on February 2nd, 2007, but is then pushed back to March 9th, 2007.

18 January 2007: Rupert fan, Vania, sent us a new interview which was published in her school magazine, The Spectator. The interview took place in New York in October 2006 while undergoing promotional work for Driving Lessons.

10 February 2007: A new interview is published in the February/March issue of the Saddle Club magazine. Rupert reminisces and discusses the sixth film. 

Do you feel like you've had a normal childhood?
Not really, no, but I think that I've had a really good childhood. I haven't really missed that much except for school, which I'm not that worried about!

Do people come up to you and ask about Harry Potter all the time?
The films are quite big now, and I do get recognised but it's something that you don't ever really get used to. It's quite strange, but people are always really nice and usually like the films.

How has your life changed?
I suppose the biggest thing is getting recognised. But it's changed for the best really, I've gotten to go to places like New York, so I'm pretty grateful for that sort of thing. It's been pretty good. Look at Orlando Bloom who's done Rings and then Pirates.

15 February 2007: BeanoMAX publishes a treat of an interview! Totally bonkers, and absolutely hilarious, in support of Red Nose Day. See the scans here and here; you'll definitely want to read the whole thing!

That dress robe they made you wear in Goblet of Fire was a rotter. What's the dodgiest outfit hiding at the bottom of your own wardrobe?
How dare you! The dress robe was actually mine and I lent it to Ron for the part.

What's your bogey picking style?
The classic traditional finger scoop up, out, and away.

22 February 2007: Driving Lessons is released across Portugal.

1 March 2007: Not only does this day mark our favourite fictional ginger wizard's birthday, but his Muggle counterpart  attended the NME Awards with the Phelps twins in tow!
