Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) admits he’d reached a point in his Harry Potter career in which he’d considered leaving the franchise.
Yes, it’s true. In the most recent interview of Rupert (Ron Weasley), he has opened up on a moment in which he considered leaving the Harry Potter franchise. No doubt the series helped Rupert gain a lot of experience and reputation when it comes to acting. But the huge fame that came with the job seemingly left Rupert reconsidering his future with it. In that interview, he revealed that after Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – the fourth of the eight films – he thought about throwing in his wand.
“I had just finished my GCSEs,” he told The Independent. “I thought ‘Do I actually want to keep doing this? It’s a bit of a drag.’
“Because obviously it’s a big sacrifice. You take for granted anonymity, just doing normal stuff, just going out.”
He added: “Everything was different and a little bit scary. There were times when I was like ‘I’m done.’”
