Rupert Grint Teases Touching ‘Harry Potter’ Reunion Special | Connect FM | Local news radio
HBO Max’s Harry Potter reunion special is just around the corner, and Rupert grint teases fans on what to expect.
The actor, who played Ron Weasley in the series, recounts Entertainment tonight how moving the meeting was. This is the first time that he, Daniel radcliffe and Emma watson have come together onscreen since the last Harry Potter film in 2011.
“These films were our childhoods. We grew up on these sets, so it has incredible meaning to all of us, ”Grint told ET. “It’s been 10 years since we finished the last movie and we saw each other quite a bit in between, but not a lot. So it was great to see them again and talk about them. I don’t really talk about it or think about it a lot, so it was fun to remember.
Grint wouldn’t reveal many more secrets or surprises, although he did promise stars from all eight films would be in attendance. He also spoke about a possible reboot or sequel to the original films and said he would not be averse to playing Ron again.
“We have talked a lot about [playing Ron again] with everything that’s going on and I feel like I’m that character, ”Grint says. “I think I had a very strange relationship with him at first, but I feel like there’s a lot of me in there, so I’m pretty protective of him. I don’t really have a good reason to say no, I’m very proud to be a part of it.
