Grint Interviews

Actor Rupert Grint has been making the rounds in recent days, promoting his forthcoming film, "Cherrybomb."  During a number of interviews, the Ron Weasley actor spoke regarding the long anticipated Silver Doe scene from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."  Speaking to Total Film Magazine, he said briefly makes mention of scene, saying, "There's always hours of waiting about when you're filming and on the last film we did a lot of outdoor scenes at a pond last February which was freezing. I hate getting my face wet and we had to change out there, too. Those were hours of pain and darkness."

Mr. Grint continued, speaking in regards to finishing filming the series, by saying, "I think as the years have passed, Ron and I have blended into one person. It's weird because the final filming day is coming up and I'll have to say goodbye to him. I'm ready to move on--I'm looking forward to seeing what else is out there." The subject of filming for "Deathly Hallows" was breeched again in a video interview with ITN, where Rupert Grint confirmed that filming is set to wrap in June, and spoke more of his relationships with his fellow "Potter" costars.

Moving on to the subject of "Cherrybomb," Mr. Grint made comments about the adjustment period he faced when first working on this new and more mature project, as well as the "culture shock" he faced "doing a lower budget film."  The full interview can be viewed right here, while scans of the April 2010 issue of Total Film are available via our Image Galleries.

"Cherrybomb" is set to be released in theaters on April 23.

It’ll be interesting to see him in a “mature” film, but I don’t know if I’ll ever stop thinking of him as Ron Weasley.

So that means that the silver doe scene is in the 2nd movie? I thought they would end the first one with that.

‘hours of pain and darkness’ – can’t wait to see how it all comes out on film! btw, subjects are broached, not breeched… :)

Yeah, I can imagine any projects he works on from now on will definitely be lower budget than HP. But it sounds like he’s got his head on pretty straight & is just enjoying pursuing his career. Good interview comments.

he’s been in a mature film driving lessons, it actaully was pretty good, and was funny becuase the lead actress in the movie plays his mom in the harry potter movies, and in this she was pretty good as well

I hate all these sentimental talks. I’m trying to stay away from that inevitable fact and reading/hearing about it is just making me want to crawl into a hole and die.

Love you anyway, Rupert.

It’s been a great run for all the actors. I want to see them in other roles as well like I’ve seen several of the older actors from the series.

I’m sad and happy that it’s going to be over. Sad, of course because its the end of the series in the films, but happy because now we’ll see if any of the young stars will continue acting and to see them in different roles. I’m excited to see him in “CherryBomb”!

No matter what he does he’ll always be Ron to me.

He and Ron will somehow always be the same to many of us. Will always picture Ron as Rupert when rereading the series.
Can only wish him the best of luck in all his future roles.

OMG, only 2 months left?!! I need my Easter chocolate now, that’s just so depressing!
On the bright side, we can expect some amazing behind the scenes stuff on the DVD (if a little heartbreaking).

No matter what happens to them, Dan, Rupert and Emma will always be Harry, Ron and Hermione to me.
