Rupert Grint loved every minute of Harry Potter
Last night saw the biggest London Premiere as Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square were taken over by the Premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
It's certainly been an emotional and heartfelt farewell by cast and crew in the wake of the release of the final instalment, but none more so than Ron Weasley himself Rupert Grint who told press “I loved every minute of it, and I’m really going to miss it. I felt empty and a bit lost, and it’s taken me a while to accept it’s over.”
However the young British actor went on to say that the films started to take precedent over his earlier, slightly less glamorous, career ambition and explained “When Harry Potter started, I wanted to be an ice-cream man, but the films showed me that I wanted to be an actor, although for the first three I didn’t take it very seriously. I just stood where I was told and read my lines. Then with the fourth film I started caring about my performance.”
Fans of Grint need not despair as he four films in different stages of development; Comrade, Eddie the Eagle, Cross Country and Wartime Wanderers which are slated to arrive in cinemas in 2012.
