Uncategorized has a new interview with Rupert Grint, in which the actor discusses his new film Driving Lessons , the progress of the OotP shoot, working with Julie Walters (Mrs. Weasley) on both films, leaving school, playing the didgeridoo and much more. Here’s a quote about his reasons for choosing to do Driving Lessons:

I was in the middle of the fourth “Harry Potter” film, and I got sent this script. I just really liked it. I thought it would be a good thing to do. Then, I met Jeremy, and everyone there were just really nice people, so it just happened like that, really. It was just something so different from Harry Potter, that was quite an appealing part of it, because it was just no special effects, sort of lower budget, and a lot of driving, which sort of appealed to me quite a lot, as well. I’m actually learning now to drive in real life. It just worked really well, because there was a little gap between the two “Harry Potter” films, and it slotted in nicely.
