Here more details about Rupert’s run with the Olympic Torch:
The BBC reports that his run will take place Wednesday, July 25 at Middlesex University, which is just north of the center of London.
Wednesday, 25 July – Olympic badminton silver medallist Nathan Robertson carries the flame outside the sport’s London 2012 venue, Wembley Arena. England ’66 World Cup winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks takes the Wembley Stadium leg. Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint takes the torch at Middlesex University and the last torchbearer of the day is Daley Thompson.
Rupert talked about the torch and how he was feeling about it:
“It’s really exciting. I’ve always been a big fan of the Olympics and [have] always [wanted] to get involved with it,” Grint told MTV News.
“It’s a really historical kind of event, and I don’t think in my lifetime there’ll be another Olympics in London, so yeah, I feel really honored to be part of it.”
He also shared his favorite sports to watch during the global sporting competition, adding: “I like all the athletic and track kind of events. I like the hammer throw; all the weird ones [are] pretty cool.”
