New Actor Interviews: Rupert Grint, Natalia Tena

Grint Interviews

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.
Read the full interview at this link and find out more about the film "You Instead" here on the official website. It premiered at the Glasgow Film Festival on the 25th of February earlier this year.

It’s a pity there isn’t more Tonks in the films – I like Natalia Tena’s Tonks ver much !! She and David Thewliss make a great on screen-couple. Rupert is of course great too as Ron – but there is a lot of him in the films so nothing to complain about :)

Same here, I’m always left wishing Tonks, and Remus, had more time in the movies. But they were in the new trailer so thats something.

It’s great to see how they’ve moved on from the Harry Potter franchise…they can’t keep that stigma forever. It might follow them for years until their next big break that tops HP.

I am really devastated that the movies are ending, and reading about the toys Rupert found in his room just makes me cry. I grew up with the HP books! Although, it would be nice if Jo wrote another book.

All of the people playing their characters are simply outstanding! I wish JKR would keep writing and all the actresses and actors would stay with their roles! But I guess it has to end sometime. It’s really already started, Melissa Anelli hasn’t posted and update to the Leaky Cauldron home page since January 3. :``(

I live in Denmark and can understand written Norwegian, so it is a blast being able to follow Rupert in norwegian sites. ;-)
Good for him!

Uhh, I can’t help crying whenever I think it’s all coming to an end. It’s just not been given enough press, don’t they understand how emotional it is if the Potter phenomenom is all that’s kept you going for the last five years.

i think a prequel book would be awesome, and then there’s no pressure on the main actors to come back and do another movie!
