Laid­back side­kick

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MOVIES -

UP close and per­sonal, Ru­pert Grint isn’t that dif­fer­ent from his al­ter ego, the gan­gly, gin­ger-haired Ron Weasley. The 21-year-old ad­mit­ted that he didn’t know how big a deal it was work­ing on the Harry Pot­ter movies un­til the last day on the set.

“It re­ally hit me hard – an over­whelm­ing feel­ing, re­ally, that we would never be here again in the same place. I’ve taken some time to ad­just since then and come to terms with that. I’m ready to move on,” said Grint.

The Bri­tish ac­tor had been film­ing the Harry Pot­ter movies since he was 10, and he’s ready to re­turn to a nor­mal life, catch­ing up on the things that he has missed out on.

“ Harry Pot­ter had taken over my life, ac­tu­ally. It’s weird to shed it but I feel free now, which is quite nice.”
