Get excited, Harry Potter fans - Rupert Grint is ready to return as Ron Weasley.
The 32-year-old, who played Harry's hapless best friend for all eight films in the Harry Potter franchise, would be more than happy to pick up his wand once more.
Speaking to ComicBook, Rupert explained: "I mean, never say never. I would never say, 'Absolutely no.' It was a huge part of my life and I'm very fond of that character and their stories.
"So yeah, I mean, I'd be up for it at the right time. I don't know what capacity that would be, but yeah, we'll see."
Before we get too excited, there have not been any plans to continue the original Harry Potter story beyond The Deathly Hallows: Part Two, which was released in cinemas in 2011.
But there has been some continuation of the wizarding world that we all know and love, with Harry Potter author JK Rowling working on the Fantastic Beasts franchise, which stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander.
Elsewhere, stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child follows Harry and Ginny's son Albus as he heads to Hogwarts and messes with the events of history. The play sees an all-new cast playing an older Harry, Ron and Hermione.
In the epilogue of The Deathly Hallows, it is revealed that Ron has become an Auror, a magical law enforcer, alongside Harry. He has married childhood sweetheart Hermione, where they share two children.
In real life, Rupert, who has welcomed daughter Wednesday alongside partner Georgia Groome, considered quitting acting after the Harry Potter franchise wrapped.
"I definitely did think, ''Is this really what I want to do?" he told Entertainment Weekly. "I wanted to live a little bit. I felt like I'd missed out on a lot.
"Being in that adult environment from such an early age, it was nice to just be away from it and not have any kind of commitments at all, and just be a bit free."
However, he has since gone on to star in 2017 TV series Snatch, and most recently has featured as Julian Pearce on Apple TV+ series Servant.
