Grint Interviews

Actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) attended V Festival over the weekend in Hylands Park and spoke to the Press Association about his life now that the final Harry Potter film has been released.

"It's going to take a while to really sink in - it was quite a shock really. It all seemed to end quite suddenly but now the film's out it is kind of closure and I'm excited to move on," Rupert said at Virgin Media's V Festival in Hylands Park this weekend.

"It has kind of been this bubble - it's like graduating I guess. We've all learned so much."

Rupert said he is keen to keep contact with his Potter co-stars - in particular the Weasley twins, played by James and Oliver Phelps.

"I spend a lot of time with the twins. All of us really, we've all shared this quite unique experience together and we'll always stay in touch."

I’m glad he’s keeping in touch!
It would be so cool to see the Trio together again at an event or osmething not having to do with Harry Potter!
And especially glad that he’s keeping in touch with the twins! They’re really wicked!

I am glad too that the friends they made on set are sticking together as much as they can. Rupert did a good job of acting in Driving Lessons as well as in HP, so I hope we get to see him in anther film soon.
