Rupert Grint still finds it “very difficult” to “break away” from Ron Weasley.

The 33-year-old actor played Harry Potter’s best friend in eight films from 2001 and 2011 and he admitted his character became an important part of him and shaped him into the person he is today .

He said: “I measure my life in the ‘Harry Potter’ films. They are so ingrained in me. I find it very hard to let go of being Ron – we’ve merged into the same person. I can’t believe that It started 20 years ago and it definitely shaped who I am.

“I mentally shut the door even though I’m constantly dealing with it – there’s the play, the theme park and it’s still on TV. I don’t see Dan and Emma as much as you do. wait, so the reunion was very nostalgic.”

Rupert was just 11 when he started working on the film series and admitted it made him feel a “disconnect” with his friends because his formative years were so different from theirs, although he doesn’t regret being part of such a huge franchise.

He said: “I really felt a disconnect between me and my friends when I started Harry Potter. I suddenly left such a crucial part of my schooling, just when I had started high school. and developed a group of friends.

“At that time, we didn’t know it was going to be eight films and what a sacrifice it would be. Going back to school for exams was the weirdest thing. I had been in this very adult work environment. was a very different way of growing up, but there are no regrets.

He told The Times magazine: “I compare JK Rowling to an aunt. I don’t necessarily agree with everything my aunt says, but she’s still my aunt. It’s tricky.”
