As previously reported, Rupert Grint carried the Olympic Fire closer towards its destination on Wednesday, 25 July 2012, at the Olympic Torch Relay at Middlesex University. Our staff was present, and we are happy to share our goodies from this awesome once-in-a-lifetime experience with you.

The Olympic Flame was brought to Middlesex University by 100-year old Diana Gould, who was allowed to rest upon arrival, before being greeted by mayor Boris Johnson.
After an hour of celebrating the Olympic Flame, a proud Rupert Grint had his torch lit in the presence of London’s mayor Boris Johnson, and took off with the flame down the street.

After Rupert had finished his run, he returned to Middlesex University for a few interviews with the Press. Afterwards, Rupert gave another interview just outside the builiding before giving autographs and fulfilling picture-wishes for a few lucky fans.

RG.us was also given the opportunity to ask Rupert a few questions right after he had returned from his run, and we finally learn something about his part in American Dad, and we took the opportunity to ask which charity was closest to his heart.
