Rupert Grint Talks Deathly Hallows Epilogue and Script

The new issue of Total Film has a one page interview with actor Rupert Grint, where he briefly discussed his role as Ron Weasley in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The interview was conducted shortly before filming began last month, and Rupert noted he only had the Part One script to Deathly Hallows ("so far, it's looking really cool".) Rupert also went on to discuss the epilogue to the final Harry Potter novel by J.K. Rowling, and said he was surprised at the outcome of the trio. Quotage:

"I really liked it, it was a good ending. It was not what I expected, actually. For some reason, I thought at least one of me, Dan, Emma was going to not make it. But I think it's going to be cool, the whole 20 years later thing. It should be fun. They'll age us up."

It seems as though Rupert hasn’t read the book since he was suprised that the Trio survived.

“They’ll age us up” …wait a minute-does that mean they will age Dan,Rupert,Emma,Bonnie and Tom, or they’ll cast grown-ups?

oh my gosh i am so glad that they are not going to cast new older actors for the epilogue. i was really worried about that.

did anybody else think about that? or is it too out of the question to suggest?

Read the article. They are going to age them up with make up and special effects.

It would be too unrealistic to add in new actors for the epilogue. I would think without a doubt that they’ll just “age them up”. Cool

I’m happy they aren’t casting new actors. That just wouldn’t be good.

Maybe he just assumed they’ll age them up? I really hope they do because I don’t want the last faces we see to be … not them!
