New Actor Interviews: Rupert Grint, Natalia Tena
May 14, 2011
Parade magazine has a brand new interview with Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) in which he talks about the filming the last film.
What were those last days on set like?
“[Harry Potter] was such a massive part of my life. It really has been my life. I can’t really remember a life before it. For that to just all come down to just like, one day, and like one thing, just seems really strange. Yeah, it was emotional. There was a real sadness about it and quite an empty feeling. So, I remember packing up my room, boxing everything up and I had like, toys from when I was 10. It was weird.”
Did you enjoy being in more of an action film and doing bigger stunts?
“It was quite cool to film that. There was a lot of running, which is not something I’m really that used to. There are big action shots of me running across a courtyard with giants swinging stuff at us and spiders. I loved all the stunts and when am I gonna get a chance to do that? But I didn’t really have any injuries I don’t think.”
If J.K. Rowling ends up writing another book, would that be something that you would sign up for?
“I’m not sure. I wouldn’t actually completely rule it out. I was always a big fan of the books and over the years I’ve become quite attached to Ron and we’ve meshed into the same person, really. But yeah, I don’t know. I don’t know how it would really work. I would like to play the middle-aged Ron, yeah. We’ll have to wait and see.”

NYLON magazine has a short interview with Natalia Tena, who plays Tonks in the Harry Potter films.
Tell us about your new movie, You Instead?
We filmed the movie You
Instead in four and a half days at a festival. An entire feature! I’ve
never experienced anything like it. Exhilarating, exhausting, and
epic. I literally can’t look at Red Bull in the same way again.
