April 03, 2010, 08:50 PM
Actor Rupert Grint has been making the rounds in recent days, promoting his forthcoming film, "Cherrybomb." During a number of interviews, the Ron Weasley actor spoke regarding the long anticipated Silver Doe scene from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." Speaking to Total Film Magazine, he said briefly makes mention of scene, saying, "There's always hours of waiting about when you're filming and on the last film we did a lot of outdoor scenes at a pond last February which was freezing. I hate getting my face wet and we had to change out there, too. Those were hours of pain and darkness."
Mr. Grint continued, speaking in regards to finishing filming the series, by saying, "I think as the years have passed, Ron and I have blended into one
person. It's weird because the final filming day is coming up and I'll
have to say goodbye to him. I'm ready to move on--I'm looking forward
to seeing what else is out there." The subject of filming for "Deathly Hallows" was breeched again in a video interview with ITN, where Rupert Grint confirmed that filming is set to wrap in June, and spoke more of his relationships with his fellow "Potter" costars.
Moving on to the subject of "Cherrybomb," Mr. Grint made comments about the adjustment period he faced when first working on this new and more mature project, as well as the "culture shock" he faced "doing a lower budget film." The full interview can be viewed right here

Ron is Rupert and Rupert is Ron…lol. :)
Well all good things eventually come to an end.
AWE….2 MONTHS….OH DEAR…. Where is Jo? we need her now, its going to be tough, not that the same cast is going to be used for her totally different book…idk, its sad….its like what dumbledore said about death “a whole new adventure”
It will really take some time for the people to see the trio in a non-hp role… It was even weird for me when I saw Rupert riding a bicycle in “The driving lessons” .. I was like "Ron, where’s your broom?
Goood luck for the future Rupert !!! :) x
Ron’s to immature to be in a mature film! Hahahaha
Whether or not Ron is too immature to be in a mature movie, Rupert Grint is mature enough and, after his awesome role in Driving Lessons I dont think that anyone can doubt his ability to completely and convincingly act in a more mature movie.
Wow it really got to me though when Rupert said: I think as the years have passed, Ron and I have blended into one person. It’s weird because the final filming day is coming up and I’ll have to say goodbye to him.
Oh my gosh it is going to be so tough for them and, for us, too. I think I will just have to be delusional and not accept that it’s coming to the end …
I wonder if the British film industry will be able to survive the end of the Potter Era. It has been like the biggest make-work project ever. I get so disappointed when I see the low budget cheap looking tv-movie style stuff…..
It must be heartbreaking for Rupert to say goodbye to Ron forever after the Deathly Hallows end. Everyone has been so accustomed to him being Ron Weasley that it kind of makes me squeamish when I see him in another role.
But, alas, a kid’s got to grow up one day or another. I’d like to watch Rupert in his new role in Cherrybomb.
he’s always so sweet,but bad hair cut, Rupert my darlin
After living with (as!) Ron, Hermione and Harry for such a huge chunk of their lives, I think Rupert, Emma and Dan will feel an emptiness inside for a while once they wrap in June…. It’s been amazing to watch the actors grow as the Trio grew.
There’s much more Rupert Grint news this week, video interviews and such, but I guess the topics are too mature to post here.
Anyway, while I will always love Rupert’s portrayal as Ronald Bilius Weasley, he’s earned the right to pursue other opportunties and be considered as more than just Ron.
I’ve seen Rupert as Ron in the HP series, as Alan in Thunderpants, as Ben in Driving Lessons, and Malachy in Cherrybomb, and those roles never overlap to me. I can’t wait to see him as Tony in Wild Target and I hope that he has a long career fill with other characters.
lol culture shock i’m sure haha! they are prob treated like royalty on the set of HP and he prob has to fend for himself on a low budg film
it’ll be weird to see him in another film other than HP,in “driving lessons” i kept expecting hermione to come around the corner. he’ll always be ron weasley to me :)
cool. cant w8 till DH. must be really sad about parting with HP for them
