Rupert Grint says there were times when making ‘Harry Potter’ felt ‘suffocating’

Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the “Potter” franchise, appeared on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast to discuss dealing with the movies from 2001 to 2011.

“There was a time where it felt quite suffocating, because it was heavy going, because it was every day for 10 years in the end,” Grint informed Shepard.

He continued: “Sometimes it definitely felt like, ‘I want to do something else. See what else is out there,'” Grint stated. “It just never ended. Every year, we came back. And it was kind of like ‘Groundhog Day’ because it was the same sets. It was the same people. But it was great. I loved it.”

Grint did include that despite the fact that he worked with the exact same individuals for a years, making the hit motion pictures was “a great experience,” since the cast and team ended up being like household to him.

He hasn’t seen all the “Potter” movies, he included, since “it still feels too soon,” although he states he did see “The Sorcerer’s Stone” two times.

“It still feels too soon really. I can’t detach myself fully. I can’t face it,” Grint stated.
