First Time Meeting: Rare Photo of Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint in 2000

Well it wasn't quite on the Hogwarts Express, but the LA Times have released a rare photo (now here in our galleries) taken when actor Daniel Radcliffe first met Rupert Grint. Like their movie counterparts of Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, the black and white photo shows the two youngsters in shy conversation on the day they meet in 2000. This photo comes from producer David Heyman who is interviewed for the paper, remarking:

“They are not my own children, obviously, but they are like nephews and nieces or perhaps godchildren, and I feel really protective of them,” Heyman said as he sat in his office at the converted aviation factory here that serves as the movie set for the “Potter” series. “Here, look at this one — this is a photo taken the day the boys met. No one’s really seen this before. They were taking a little walk together to get know one another...”

The interview with David Heyman also contains his thoughts on the Trio of Radcliffe, Grint and Emma Watson who portrays Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series. “I know they all will have great success in whatever they choose to do,” Heyman said at his Watford office, putting away his photo collection. “Emma is astonishingly bright. She is radiant and relaxed. Dan is extremely focused on his acting, and I have the fortune too to read his poetry and short stories, and there are some major poets who have written the most glowing, supportive things about his work. And Rupert — Rupert is the most natural comedian of the bunch. I think that he is like an old person in a young person’s body. He is a wonderful eccentric, a distinct original.”

Wow, such a sweet picture. Must have been awkward and exciting for them, not yet knowing what lay ahead of them.

That’s so adorable. It seems like only yesterday they were that small.
I’d love to see we they met Emma. Boys and girls at that age are a funny combination.
