Rupert Mania in Trollhättan

The Harry Potter star met fans at “Film I Väst”

Actor Rupert Grint is in Trollhättan.

And the mania has reached monumental proportions.

It’s great to be here, and the enthusiasm has really surprised me, he says.

After the role as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, Rupert Grint has become a world famous celebrity in the true sense of the word.

It has been particular apparent in Trollhättan in the recent days, where the 23-year-old Brit is living right now due to the filming of Petter Naess’s new movie “Comrade.”

A flock of fans – mostly teenage girls – have inhabited the city’s streets to catch a glimpse of the red-haired star. “Film I Väst” held a press conference about the new film a little while ago, and the mania outside the building was absolute.

– We’re here because we love Rupert so much, Parisa Rezaie says, who traveled to Trollhättan from Gothenburg with Linnea Lidbom and Alice Bilger.

– I’ve hardly slept in days. And we were even in Trollhättan this weekend but didn’t get to see him, Linnea says.

Eventually their long wait paid off.

Because after the press conference Rupert walked out among the fans to write autographs and get his picture taken before it was time to go back to the filming location.

– He seems kind and nice, and really just took the time to do something like this, Elza Meha said, the Trollhättan girl who got an autograph on her shoe.

A more mature audience also got the chance to see Rupert Grint do a really odd show at Butler’s this weekend.

Here, he and Nachlan Nieboer – known from the TV-series Torchwood – gave a musical performance which included “Wonderwall” by Oasis.
