The epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (SPOILER ALERT if you’ve made it this far without seeing the end of the movie or reading J. Rowling’s books) shows us an older Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Ginny (Bonnie Wright) sending their son off to Hogwarts.
They are accompanied by a married Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), proving that the ginger got the upper hand on The Boy Who Lived in the greatest wizard love triangle of all time.
Although he acknowledges that winning the role of the boy wizard was the movie equivalent of winning a Willy Wonka golden ticket to fame and fortune, there were many times Radcliffe could barely watch himself on screen.
Millions of men around the world would kill for a chance to lock lips with Hermione Granger — too bad Ron Weasley wasn’t one of them. Whereas Rupert’s a bit more quiet so I didn’t really know what he was thinking which made me a bit more nervous.” Grint was at the three-day Wizarding World of Harry Potter event with former co-stars Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Katie Leung (Cho Chang), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood).
But it wasn’t days of wine and roses for Ron and Hermione… The young actor who established himself as Ron Weasley in every Harry Potter film attended a special ceremony in Orlando, Florida in celebration of the film series and it’s legacy.
During an interview with The Huffington Post – an outlet that sounds like it could also be a news service in the wizarding world of Harry Potter -- Grint was asked where his character might be today.
"I've just been getting into so much trouble with Emma about this, because apparently I said in an interview that she was like an animal," Radcliffe told us.He admits that stripping off made people look at him in a completely different way: ‘I don’t know if I actually connected those thoughts.But I wanted to make choices that would surprise people and I wanted to be good.’ Alongside Emma Watson (Hermione) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Radcliffe became the most famous child star in the world, frozen in time, like an Andy Warhol painting, as the boyishly bespectacled Harry.And the reason I spoke out about it was because I felt someone else would and I should take control...which is exactly what I did.’Radcliffe says Harry Potter haunted him in other ways.
