Rupert Grint is opening up about his time in the Harry Potter franchise and admitted that he does have some regrets.
“There were some awkward stages, for sure. My hair in film four is one of my biggest regrets. Shoulder length,” he joked, adding that “I think everyone actually had a phase of having this really long hair.”
He says about the fan reaction to the length: “They liked it – it was kind of wizardy. We went through our puberty on camera. You kind of see it all. It is very cringey.”
Later on in the same interview, Rupert did say that there was also “a time where it felt quite suffocating, because it was heavy going, because it was every day for 10 years in the end.”
“It just never ended,” he shared. “Every year, we came back. And it was kind of like Groundhog Day because it was the same sets. Sometimes it definitely felt like, ‘I want to do something else. See what else is out there’.”
Overall though, “It was a great experience. Such a nice kind of family atmosphere. It was always the same crew we kind of grew up with, so it was a great place to be.”
