Rupert Grint: A Starlight Ambassador

Posted by Lilysowl On April - 8 - 2014

Rupert GrintStarlight announced that Rupert Grint agreed to be an ambassador for the charitable organization located in the United Kingdom.  Starlight’s mission is to bring light to the lives of children who have serious and terminal illnesses by granting wishes and arranging fun and entertaining activities to distract them from the pain, fear, and isolation of their condition.

Grint was quoted to have said that he is delighted to become a Starlight Ambassador after witnessing the effect a Starlight Wish can have on a seriously ill child and his family when Grint agreed to meet nine-year old Callum Wilson.

Neil Swan, Chief Executive of Starlight Children’s Foundation, added his own comment by saying that the organization was “thrilled” to welcome Grint as one of their ambassadors due to his experience with the chartiy’s work, his popularity with children and their families, and his “great sense of fun and charm”.

Stephen Fry, who narrated the UK editions of the Harry Potter audiobooks, and Bill Nighy, who portrayed “Rufus Scrimgeour” in the Harry Potter films, also support Starlight.

Rupert Grint Video: CBS-TV Pilot for Series ‘Super Clyde’

Posted by Lilysowl On October - 9 - 2013

Rupert Grint in Super ClydeEarlier this year, Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) filmed a series pilot for CBS-TV.  The show’s title is Super Clyde.  It is about young man who receives the opportunity to do heroic deeds, motivated by his love of comic books about super heroes.  Stephen Fry, who narrated the Harry Potter UK audiobooks, starred with Grint in this show.  As a butler, Fry was able to keep his British accent whereas Grint had to do a splendid American accent of his own.  That made it easy to separate him from his portrayal of “Ron Weasley”, in spite of the similar humor between the two characters.

Unfortunately, CBS-TV decided not to pick up the show, at least for the Fall season.  However, the network has made it possible for us Rupert Grint and Stephen Fry fans to view the program on its website.  If we are able to rally enough viewers, perhaps CBS-TV will reconsider the show and air it for national broadcast on television.

Click here to view it.

I have watched it.  The humor does lean towards that British oddball style of humor, but it does have some good laugh aloud moments due to the slapstick, like Clyde being chased by three women late at night.  Naturally, I’m not going to say why he was:  1) Our webmistress would be upset with me if I revealed a spoiler.  2) You have to watch the show!

All I will say is that it is a shame that CBS-TV chose not to broadcast this show.  It was fun to watch and definitely a feel-good story compared to some of the shows the network did choose.  I loved it.

Rupert GrintRupert Grint revealed during an interview with RG.net that he’ll be one of the lucky people to run with the Olympic torch during the 2012 Olympic Ceremonies taking place in London beginning in just a few weeks.  He didn’t mention what date he will be running, but he seems a little concerned about the running bit.

Just I never run. I’m not a quick runner. And I’m actually running with the torch for the Olympics. I don’t know how far. It’s not far.
