Two new interviews have popped up online with Kimberley Nixon, Rupert Grint’s co-star in his newest project, “Cherrybomb”. In this first interview with the Times, she talks about how much she loves travelling:
I’m mad for city breaks: I’ve ticked off Amsterdam, Venice, and Rome, which I squeezed in while we were filming Cranford. I’d spent a lot of time in a tent in Wiltshire in the rain with Judi Dench, playing this game she taught me, where you tear bits of newspaper into shapes, like a boat or an elephant. We had a week off, so I dashed off to Rome with Cai. Trouble is, it was July, and I was forced to explore the city dressed head to toe in baggy clothes and a big hat, so that I would come back suitably wan and listless-looking — a sun-kissed lass would have been out of place in 19th-century Cheshire. The Romans thought I had an exotic skin disease.
In this second interview with Good Prattle, she talks about working with Rupert Grint:
Rupert was great to work with. Ron Weasley was quickly forgotten when we started to rehearse and shoot the film. He instantly became Malachy and I was really impressed because it must be hard to shake a character you’ve been playing for almost half your life. But I think he preferred the pace of an indie movie; we would do between 6-10 scenes a day and he said on Potter they would just about complete one.
