Celebrated Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint feels he has been emotionally attached to his Harry Potter character, Ron Weasley. He also added that it is now very tough for him to separate himself from that character of Ron Weasley.
"I think it's always going to be a challenge to move away from 'Potter'. They're so widely liked and watched and new generations are coming into it, so it'll always be there." Said Rupert.
"It's never really been a conscious decision, I didn't really go out to pick shocking, very adult roles. I'm driven by scripts and people around me. But yeah, you do want to try and step away from the comfort zone," Rupert added.
"I think (Ron) will always be with me. I had a weird relationship with that character because after that we kind of merged into the same person. I find it very hard to separate where I end and Ron begins." The Harry Potter actor stated further.
"We had such an intimate and intense few years in this bubble. When I started, (acting) was never something that I aspired to do. I did acting with school plays and stuff like that. But it was never something that I actively dreamed of." Rupert explained.
I mean, I fell in love with it while I was doing it. But I definitely did think, 'Is this really what I want to do?' I wanted to live a little bit. I felt like I'd missed out on a lot," he concluded.
