Rupert Grint Attends V Festival, Talks About Life Post-Potter

Grint Interviews

Actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) attended V Festival over the weekend in Hylands Park and spoke to the Press Association about his life now that the final Harry Potter film has been released.

"It's going to take a while to really sink in - it was quite a shock really. It all seemed to end quite suddenly but now the film's out it is kind of closure and I'm excited to move on," Rupert said at Virgin Media's V Festival in Hylands Park this weekend.

"It has kind of been this bubble - it's like graduating I guess. We've all learned so much."

Rupert said he is keen to keep contact with his Potter co-stars - in particular the Weasley twins, played by James and Oliver Phelps.

"I spend a lot of time with the twins. All of us really, we've all shared this quite unique experience together and we'll always stay in touch."

I’m happy for him! It’s sad for everyone to move on. I’m on my second year in Upper Secondary and I’m turning 18 in March. Then I will grow up, move on and it will be different. It’s like he says, but it’s something everyone needs to go through. In a few years they probably will make a reunion!

I’m probably going to show my age here… :-)

What’s the ‘V’ festival? I went to the website, but it was not helpful at all.

He’s absolutely right!! I graduated this year from college and i really feel there is a space i can’t fill which is very annoying and i think i should move on and get over it!!

@sessionka oom4 CW I think V just stands for Virgin festival.I love hearing Rupert talk about hanging out a lot and staying in touch.You saw how happy he was with Tom and visa versa.How could they not want to? They have a bond that will last them their whole life.And us.Isn’t it great? One big family :)
