Rupert Grint on the Growing Confidence of Ron and More in Half-Blood Prince

Grint Interviews

There is a new video interview online with actor Rupert Grint where he speaks to the growing confidence of his character Ron Weasley in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Filmed on the set of the sixth film, you can watch video where he discusses Quidditch love and Felix Felicis here. Also be sure to read a new profile of Rupert Grint here in the Times, where he reflects back on learning his craft over the years and growing as an actor. Quotage:



In short, Ron gets a girlfriend, Hermione pines for Ron and Harry kisses Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright). Better still, the young cast, famed for delivering declamatory nails-along-the-blackboard performances, here do, gasp, “proper acting” .“Yes,” Grint confesses, “I’ve noticed that in the early days I was just reading my lines. I wasn’t really acting. But over the years, and especially with the different directors we’ve had, you try to give more.”


Thanks so much to our Order partner RupertGrint.net and Claire!

I quite liked that interview. None of us “regular mortals” can even remotely imagine what it’s been like for Rupert, Emma and Dan, to be growing up as the faces of these literary characters adored in every single corner of the world. I’m really happy they all seem to have turned out extremely well, despite the fame and all that comes with it.

The way he talks, the first few films should not be enjoyable due to the bad performances of the kids. RUBBISH!

"Yeah," said Ron slowly, savoring the words, "[i]we won.[/i] Did you see the look on Chang's face when Ginny got the Snitch right out from under her nose?"[br] "I suppose she cried, did she?" said Harry bitterly.
