Like most actors, Rupert Grint is not a big fan of watching himself back on the screen. In a recent interview with the Radio Times he told them that it was after the release of 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban', the third of the eight Potter movies, that he stopped watching them altogether.
“I think those early ones are OK. More time has passed. I can detach myself a bit more from that kid. I did see 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone' not long ago, for the first time since the premiere, and I actually enjoyed looking back. But the more recent ones I definitely couldn’t do. I could probably go up to 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban',” he said.
Grint's portrayal of Ron Weasley ultimately made him a very wealthy man and meant he never had to work again if he didn't want to. But does he have any regrets about taking the part?
“That’s always been in the back of my mind. What would have happened if I hadn’t got that part? I was always into art, I guess I would have gone to university… I’m not sure, but I do think about that a lot,” he said.
The Ed Sheeran lookalike was promoting his upcoming appearance alongside John Malkovich who plays the iconic Detective Hercule Poirot in the new BBC adaptation of Agatha Christie's 'The ABC Murders.' You can watch the trailer here:
