Watch Rupert Grint chat to Pottermore about life after Harry Potter, and discover if his Hogwarts house matches that of his character, Ron Weasley.
Rupert Grint played Ron across all eight Harry Potter films. With the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two and new film Fantastic Beasts on the way, the world of Harry Potter continues to grow, to his amazement. We sat down with the actor to reminisce about Ron’s past and the wizarding world’s future.
‘It does always amaze me how people have stayed excited about it,’ Rupert said. ‘It’s stayed relevant to people, it’s amazing and just makes you feel very proud to be a part of it.
So does he miss playing Ron? ‘Yeah occasionally I miss it,’ he admitted, ‘but I think it finished at the right time and we ended on a big bang. And it’s great that it’s living on in so many different forms.’
Of course, Rupert will always be part of the Harry Potter family, which meant it was about time he went through the Sorting Ceremony on Pottermore.
‘Definitely Gryffindor, I think,’ Rupert mused, when we asked him to predict his house. ‘I feel like I belong there. But I’ve never been sorted officially.’
Watch our full interview with Rupert to see if he was right:
Join Pottermore all this week as more Harry Potter actors find out their Hogwarts house for the first time. Tomorrow, Bonnie Wright discovers if she shares Ginny Weasley’s house, and of course, stops by for a chat too.
