‘Harry Potter’ star Grint drops by MTV Live

Rupert GrintHarry Potter fans will be frolicking in the streets with the release of the latest film in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which hit theatres and IMAX today. To help promote the release star Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the films, stopped by the Masonic Temple for an episode of MTV Live.

In the latest film Harry Potter, played by Daniel Radcliffe, tries to convince the magical world that the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) has returned, while the vindictive bureaucrat Dolores Umbridge (Imelda Staunton) from the Ministry of Magic takes over control of Hogwarts.

Grint plays Harry’s best friend alongside Emma Watson as Hermione Granger. MTV Live hosts Daryn Jones and Dan Levy interviewed Grint about the film which also stars Michael Gambon as Albus Dumbledore.

You can catch the episode of MTV Live today at 6:00 PM ET, and online at www.mtv.ca.
