There is a new video interview online with actor Rupert Grint where he speaks to the growing confidence of his character Ron Weasley in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Filmed on the set of the sixth film, you can watch video where he discusses Quidditch love and Felix Felicis here. Also be sure to read a new profile of Rupert Grint here in the Times, where he reflects back on learning his craft over the years and growing as an actor. Quotage:

In short, Ron gets a girlfriend, Hermione pines for Ron and Harry kisses Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright). Better still, the young cast, famed for delivering declamatory nails-along-the-blackboard performances, here do, gasp, “proper acting” .“Yes,” Grint confesses, “I’ve noticed that in the early days I was just reading my lines. I wasn’t really acting. But over the years, and especially with the different directors we’ve had, you try to give more.”

Thanks so much to our Order partner and Claire!
