Rupert Grint Talks Deathly Hallows Epilogue and Script

The new issue of Total Film has a one page interview with actor Rupert Grint, where he briefly discussed his role as Ron Weasley in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The interview was conducted shortly before filming began last month, and Rupert noted he only had the Part One script to Deathly Hallows ("so far, it's looking really cool".) Rupert also went on to discuss the epilogue to the final Harry Potter novel by J.K. Rowling, and said he was surprised at the outcome of the trio. Quotage:

"I really liked it, it was a good ending. It was not what I expected, actually. For some reason, I thought at least one of me, Dan, Emma was going to not make it. But I think it's going to be cool, the whole 20 years later thing. It should be fun. They'll age us up."

He’s definitely read the book, I’m sure all the main cast has read the book except maybe Gambon…LOL!

I’m glad they’re ageing them, casting new actors would be silly, and I want to end the movie with these three, imagine watching them all through the eight films, and then, suddenly we see some random people as grown up trio. That’s be a bummer! And they’re all old enough to be aged, so I don’t see any problem!

I’m so happy they’re aging them. It would have been so inconsistent, not to mention WEIRD to have other, older actors playing the trio.

They better not use anyone but the trio – don’t mind if they “age them up a bit.”

Alysaw I think he has read the last book, I think he just meant that he didn’t expect all of the trio to survive – like many of the fans’ reactions.

“They’ll age us up” I really hope that means they’ll just use makeup and things with the same actors to make them look older. _ It shouldn’t be too hard as they have to “age them down” for all the films now anyway.

lol He doesn’t refer to them as “Ron, Harry, and Hermione”, but “me, Dan, and Emma”. I guess after so many years of doing this, to him, those names are interchangeable.

I’m so happy they’ll do the “older” trio. I hope they’ll do like Benjamin Button, perfect make up and visual effects.
