Rupert Grint close to wrapping Potter series, talks filming, family, more

In a new interview Rupert Grint, the actor who plays Harry Potter’s loyal friend Ron Weasley, talks about his past, current and future projects.

Rupert has called Leavesden Studios his home away from home for half of his life and will be sad to finish the Potter series in the coming weeks.

“We haven’t got long left. Just the final parts of the second part of the film. It’ll be strange saying goodbye. I’ve loved every minute of Harry Potter. Yes, it’ll be quite sad to see it go. But I’m also looking forward to being a bit more free and seeing what else comes along.”

While he has been in a few films outside of Potter already with Thunderpants, Driving Lessons and Cherry Bomb, Rupert has other films scheduled for release in near future. The Potter actor also talked of how he has a very close family who have enjoyed some of the ‘perks’ of his success by traveling all over the world with him for premieres and promotional tours.
