Rupert Grint’s post-Potter problems

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Casting, Celeb News, Filmmaking,

Rupert GrintRupert Grint had trouble adjusting to small film sets after working on the movies. The flame-haired actor - who plays wizard Ron Weasley in the long-running series based on the novels of J. K. Rowling - was confused when he worked on British projects ‘Cherrybomb’ and ‘Wild Target’ because he had been used to big budget environments. He told Total Film magazine: “It was quite an adjustment going from ‘Harry Potter’ to doing the low-budget films. It threw me a little - it’s just such a different way of making a film. But I prefer the pace of low budgets because it’s much more in the moment.”

The 22-year-old star also reveals he is due to star in a biopic about British ski jumper Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards, but is nervous about it because he has never strapped on a pair of skis in his life. He said: “It’ll be great if it happens but we’ll see. I’m looking forward to the challenge because he’s such a big character. “I’ve never skied in my life, so I guess that might be a problem - but I’m sure I’ll pick it up.”

Emma Watson Reveals Details on Brand New Deathly Hallows Scene

Those who have read already have a pretty good idea of what the movie will be like.

In a recent interview, the film’s main trio of stars (Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe) talked about some of the stunning visuals. Harry Potter himself spoke of the “huge pile of rubble” in the Hogwart’s courtyard and Voldemort “brutalizing and desperately trying to kill a 17-year-old boy.” Rupert Grint says the movie begins to turn “into a bit of a war film. The castle is on fire with rubble and bodies littered everywhere.”

But only revealed something truly juicy: a never-before-seen scene that was written especially for the screen. You can’t read this one in a book, folks. Find out what Hermione Granger revealed after the jump…

First Full-Length Deathly Hallows Trailer

I’d like to thank the brilliant marketer who supplied us with this timely - and temporary - distraction from all the madness.

Although we were already offered a glimpse of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I earlier this month, any new opportunity to stare at Voldemort’s nostrils is always welcome. It’s also very exciting to see Superman‘s General Zod make a cameo on those railroad tracks. (What? That’s not… Well, it looks like an epic movie anyway.)

What does Harry Potter have that’s “worth living for”? Find out when Part 1 of the “motion picture event of a generation” unfolds on November 19.
