Actor Rupert Grint, who is best known for his portrait of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, is mature enough to get rid of his image as a young wizard to become a serious young actor ready to embark in more difficult challenges.
In an interview for Parade Magazine, the 22 year-old admits he is shocked with his evolution over the years, claiming he does not age gracefully and looks like a younger version of Donald Trump. Rupert also proudly talks about his new movie, a dark comedy titled “Wild Target”. Here are some highlights:
Life after Harry Potter: “We had like a big wrap party when we finished and it was really nice to see everyone again from all the films. I haven’t quite adjusted to life without Harry Potter. I’m really sad actually, I’ve missed it. But I think it’s a good time really to kind of move on. It has been a long time. After ten years, I do kind of want to stretch a bit more and explore different characters and do different things.”
Maybe he could try Celebrity Apprentice: “I don’t age gracefully in the last film when all of us get older. My hair is still red but I have a lot less of it. It was quite a shock when I saw myself in the mirror. I felt like I was looking at Donald Trump because they gave me that comb over that he has. I did get a lot of ribbing from everyone, I must admit.”
What’s he’s been doing in his spare time: “I had my tonsils out recently. Something I’ve always kinda needed because I’ve always had freakishly large tonsils. It’s always affected my sleeping. But it was an operation I could never have when I was filming because there was no time to convalesce. I’m finally on the mend. It was very painful, but thank God they’re out.”
Wild Target vs. Harry Potter: “Wild Target was quite different from Harry Potter. There’s a lot of car chases and shooting people and stuff, not to mention stunts where you’re running and stumbling. The gun play was quite scary and kind of intimidating, especially firing a machine gun. It really took me a while to get used to it. You don’t know where to point it or anything. But in the end it makes you feel quite nervy, although it’s completely safe because you’re only shooting blanks.”
