Rupert Grint and Olympic Torch Race: 'I Don't Usually Run for Anything'
With a complete Harry Potter career under his belt, Rupert Grint has stated that he no longer makes a run for things these days. The 23 year-old actor did, however, make an exception Wednesday as he made a dash with the Olympic torch.
The star took the Olympic torch for a leg through Northwest London on Wednesday, but was mobbed just before he finished the walk, turning his stroll into a run.
"I don't usually run for anything, but it was all downhill so I was OK," Grint said to the Associated Press. "It was all a bit of a blur. I'm just so proud to be a part of it."
For some, watching the Harry Potter star who played Ron Weasley carry the torch seemed remnant of the Goblet of Fire. His walk was part of an 8,000-mile relay, which has gone on for over 70 days and has been joined by at least 8,000 people. The relay will end on Friday as the Olympic games begin. The last torchbearer will light the cauldron at the opening ceremony, and then "let the games begin."
Some Harry Potter fans were beside themselves with excitement to watch Grint take a leg in the 8,000-mile race.
"OMG!!! THIS IS A REALLY BIG MOMENT FOR RUPERT! And I'm saying this from the bottom of my heart, no lie! You deserve to run carrying the 'Goblet of Fire'! You, Dan and Emma have given us HP fans a blast! Thanks so much!" one user wrote on the Entertainment Weekly blog.
"I wouldn't have recognized him! little ron weasley all grown up!" another user added.
London Olympics: This time, Summer Games are about the athletes
According to the Sunday Times, one section will feature characters from children's fiction classics including "Alice in Wonderland" and "Peter Pan" , and a showdown between Voldemort, the villain of J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" books, and a horde of flying magical nannies based on Mary Poppins.
Rowling, author of the Harry Potter fantasy series, reads during the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games at the Olympic Stadium July 27, 2012.
"VOLDEMORT WAS DEFEATED BY AN ARMY OF FIFTY MARY POPPINSES"
I would have been an emotional mess if I was there live.
Im kinda glad to see Rupert do something fresh ..., whew, i miss the Potter cast.
14 Best Movie Franchise Finales -- and 10 Worst!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 (2011)
Biggest Surprise: Fans may have cried foul when the final book was split into two movies, but the decision allowed for a satisfying finale that translated big moments such as the Battle at Hogwarts and Harry's ''post-death'' conversation with Dumbledore in a way that held up to our imaginations. The final moments — awkward old age makeup and all — simply reminded us that we weren't just saying goodbye to Hogwarts, we were saying goodbye to our childhoods (even for those of us who are already all grown up). All was well. —Erin Strecker
