Certainly, Rupert Grint Will Always Be Remembered As Harry Potter’s best friend, Ron Weasley. And being a major part of the Harry Potter Universe has certainly taken a manifold change in his life. Now, as he is all set to kick off BBC1’s The ABC Murderers, Grint looks back and talks about the hurdles he had to go through.
“It was terrifying, absolutely mad,” says he. “I’d never seen anything like it.” He expresses about the first time when he got to learn that he’s going to be a wizard’s best friend he knew that he’s taking a life-threating business. He remembers the time when he along with Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson where at Tokyo, he recalls “We were at a market,” says Grint. “And we timed it very badly, school had just finished and there was literally a stampede toward us. It was the first time I’ve ever run away.”
Co-starred against John Malkovich, he hasn’t yet reached that comfort level as he continued being in the same character since 2001 to 2011 as Ron Weasley along with Emma Watson as Hermione Granger and Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter. “I struggle to remember life before it,” says Grint. “I think I lost myself a little bit along the way. With the fame, you’re almost being the character even when you’re not in character.”
He is akin towards the dark side of a character. Dark roles intrigue him a lot as he says “I like the dark side,” folding his limbs into a high-backed chair. “I’ve always been into crimes and murderers. That side of humanity has always interested me.”
Grint is seen playing the role of Inspector Crome “someone with authority,” as he asserts. “I’m used to playing the vulnerable, nerdy sidekick.” And he appreciates the way Malkovich, as Hercule Poirot, “brings this quite psychotic darkness”.
