Interviews with Rupert Grint
Nickelodeon Magazine Interview - October 2001
NICKOLODEON MAGAZINE: What's your favorite thing about Ron?
RUPERT GRINT: He's really funny. And you also kind of fell sorry for him because he's always got hand-me-downs.
NM: What stunt did you enjoy doing?
RG: I was on a wire and dropped from really, really high up into the Devil's Snare. It was fun, so I liked it when we had to do more takes.
NM: If you could play someone else in the movie, who would it be?
RG: I like the sound of Malfoy. He's pretty nasty at times, and that would be quite fun. It would be cool to have the audience against me.
NM: How long did you go to school during filming?
RG: We had a tutor on the set. Whenever we weren't filming, we were in the classroom studying. We had to study a minimum of three hours and a maximum of five hours a day.
NM: What school subject are you good at?
RG: I like to draw. I drew a picture of Alan Rickman. It was kind of amazing, but really ugly. Then I found out that he was right behind me, watching me draw this picture. He took it really well.
Harry Potter book:
Number three, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban."I liked all the bits about Scabbers being an Animagus. And Ron gets an owl."
Character: Ron. "Even before I got to play him in the film!"
Scene to film: The chess scene. "There were these great huge chess pieces, and I got to ride a really cool horse."
