As a follow up to our previous report, new images of the Harry Potter cast filming the much anticipated Epilogue sequence at Kings Cross station are now online. In this newest set, we get our very first glimpse at actor Rupert Grint as his character, Ron Weasley, nineteen years later. This full HQ image can be viewed right here in our Image Galleries. We expect more photos to come online in the coming days, and if you are able to capture any images from the filming, please do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OH MY GOD!! He looks so much older.wow
Are the actors (dan, rupert, emma, etc) playing the older versions of themselves with the use of makeup or are they hiring new actors to play them as adults.
I am enjoying these epilogue pictures SO much!
that looks exactly like himmm!!!!!!!!!!!
Honestly I feel slightly offended by how much they have aged the actors. I’m not far from the age that they are supposed to be portraying (I.E. 36-37) and I don’t think I look THAT OLD! My husband is 36 and he certainly doesn’t look that old either. Hopefully the make up is an exaggeration that will be tidied up by computer graphics before it makes it to the screen…
There is a picture somewhere online of the child who is playing Hugo…and from what I saw he could be a MINI Rupert. He looks almost exactly like Rupert Grint did at age 11. Kudos to the casting crew for that!
Saw the picture of Hugo on Mugglenet and you are right he does look just like Rupert! Hopefully the film version of these pics will look alot better. We must remember that this is stage makeup. Can not wait for the films!
These pictures are so cool!!
So far the look is nice I think… I’m excited to see Emma all aged for Hermione!
I have to say that you are all exaggerating by saying they look closer to 60s than 30s. And comparing their looks to George Clooney, Hugh Grant etc is just silly. Those actors have so obviously had plastic surgery, as have a lot of those types of actors, who rely so much on their looks (as in American film and tv in general it seems).
These films are set in the UK where the average person (non actor) does not do any kind of plastic surgery, not even botox! Blimey, we Brits must look really ancient to you when you come over here.
They look possibly a little older than 37 but not as much as you are all saying. More like early 40s. And they need to be more made-up for filming.
Ron looks like he’s over-indulged, but that fits with his character. Harry looks like he’s losing his hair but that is perfectly normal for even 30-somethings. And I know people who have developed wrinkles by their mid-30s. It depends on your skin-type and also your lifestyle and how much time you spend in the sun etc.
I don’t know who did the make-up but Harry and Ron are only supposed to be 36 not 56. What gives? By the way, YodatheHobbit, I’m 43 and I weigh less now than I did at 33 and I don’t live the on-the-go life of an auror. There are older people who are overweight but, just in case you haven’t looked about yourself at the general population of our lazy, consumer society lately, there are an awful lot of people of ALL AGES who are overweight. Think before you speak next time.
This summer i will read the DH for the 7th time. Just because i love the book, and i can omly imagine how many times i will see both movies. 12:00 feature on both i think. The end should be funny to see with the aging of our beloved cast. Here’s hoping J.K. will have a change of heart and pick the story up at some point. One can only wish. Long live HP :)
I forgot about the grown up part! Can’t wait to see everyone else!
They do look a little old, but then again the actors for Harry’s parents looked too old to me too. (According to the books they were in their early 20s when they died.) The make-up is still impressive though :)
