Rupert Grint can’t really remember life before Harry Potter.
The 22-year-old actor chatted with Parade about the before, after, and during of filming the final Harry Potter film. Check it:
On becoming one with Ron: “I wouldnâ€™t actually completely rule [another book and film] it out. I was always a big fan of the books and over the years Iâ€™ve become quite attached to Ron and weâ€™ve meshed into the same person, really. But yeah, I donâ€™t know. I donâ€™t know how it would really work. I would like to play the middle-aged Ron, yeah. Weâ€™ll have to wait and see.”
On filming the stunts in the final movie: “It was quite cool to film that. There was a lot of running, which is not something Iâ€™m really that used to. There are big action shots of me running across a courtyard with giants swinging stuff at us and spiders. I loved all the stunts and when am I gonna get a chance to do that? But I didnâ€™t really have any injuries I donâ€™t think.”
On the final day: “[Harry Potter] was such a massive part of my life. It really has been my life. I canâ€™t really remember a life before it. For that to just all come down to just like, one day, and like one thing, just seems really strange. Yeah, it was emotional. There was a real sadness about it and quite an empty feeling. So, I remember packing up my room, boxing everything up and I had like, toys from when I was 10. It was weird.”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II hits theaters this July. We can’t wait!
