Question 1: Best quote(by and/or about Rupert)
“I’ve sat in screenings with audiences who’ve watch what Rupert can do, and he obviously connects with them really brilliantly. That’s the comfort zone the audience had with him. It’s Rupert; he’ll be funny, and appealing. But, he can do really serious, straight stuff. And we’re seeing stuff Rupert do in the Hallows part 1 and Hallows part 2 which is really grown up and dark. You watch and, oh God, it’s really powerful.” –David Yates (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Ultimate Edition, December 2009)
Question 2: Best new fact
Michelle: That he was obsessed with Napolean Dynamite. It just amuses me to know this, and what’s funnier is he couldn’t remember any lines from the movie either during the Heat interview! Or…did he? I’m thinking Rupert’s a closet Napolean Dynamite fanboy, but is afraid to let it lose in public. lol
Question 3: Best photoshoot
Michelle: The Daily Mail. He looked like such a man in this one.
Question 4: Best interview(printed and/or video)
Michelle: Again, the Daily Mail interview pops back up into my mind. I’ve read it countless times, he’s so open, honest, and raw in this interview. He really made himself vulnerable, which I don’t think happened before.
Michelle: Rupert dressed up for Halloween as Alex DeLarge from “A Clockwork Orange”. Winner!!!
Question 6: Best candid shot of Rupert
Michelle: Rupert sporting a horse’s head at the V-Fetival, of course!
Question 7: Best movie promo still
Michelle: Wet, half-naked Tony with a gun. I remember sitting in my car, throwing an epic fangirl squee-fest all by lonesome, when I saw this one. Damn, just look at his face!! Look!!
Question 8: Best Half-Blood Prince scene
Michelle: Rupert owned that entire movie, in my opinion. So many great dramatic and emotional moments, as well as the bust a gut scenes. My favorite is love-potioned Ron; particularly when Harry walks into the room, and Ron says, “Isn’t it beautiful? The moon..” The way he says it, as if he’s going to break out into a love-drunk serenade at any moment. It kills me every time I see it, and that’s like six times or something….Moooooon Riverrrr…
Question 9: Best picture from a premier
Michelle: The one where Maggie Smith is kissing him on the cheek; you can see the affection for him on her face. Rupert looked surprised, but didn’t seem to mind one bit.
