During filming of the Hippogriff sceneopens in new window last week, a delightful tale of one Rupert Grint fan getting up-close and personal managed to unfold. Amy, a staff member at, has written a very cute recollection of the eventopens in new window, with a special autograph from Rupert himself:

To Rupert,

I don't know if you'll remember this, it was a long time ago, but I was meant to throw some strawberries at you at the Philosopher's Stone premiere. Here they are, unthrown.

All my Love,
Amy (bam-bam)
P.S: Sorry they are slightly mushed!

So the man disappeared off to where Rupert was lurking behind a tree, and I saw him give him the bag. My heart was going so fast. Rupert opened the bag, looked in, grinned, and then read my note. He talked to the helper, and was obviously asking who had given them to him. He looked right at me. I waved and he grinned, giving me the thumbs up; and then I worked up the nerve to blow him a kiss and he winked back! He was smiling at me so much! Then he proceeded to show most of his friends in the cast the note (major embarrassment, people) and everyone was trying to nick his strawberries.

Be sure to read the rest of Amy's fun adventure, it's great.
