Rupert Grint: 'Ron & I Meshed Into One Person'

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 wouldn’t actually completely rule [another book and film] it out. I was always a big fan of the books and over the years I’ve become quite attached to Ron and we’ve meshed into the same person, really. But yeah, I don’t know. I don’t know how it would really work. I would like to play the middle-aged Ron, yeah. We’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 I’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 didn’t really have any injuries I don’t think.”

On the final day: “[Harry Potter] was such a massive part of my life. It really has been my life. I can’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!

    I can’t imagine Ron without Hermione. So Rupert has “meshed” with Ron into one person, huh? I see . . .
