Rupert Grint Admits He Hasn’t Seen Most Of The Harry Potter Movies - And We’re Shook

The Harry Potter franchise is a beloved part of our childhood, with the adventures of Harry, Ron and Hermione still among some of our favourite stories.

But while we (still) adore the eight films following Harry's continued battles against the evil Lord Voldermort, it seems not all of the cast feel the same as we do.

In fact, Rupert Grint, who played the hapless Ron Weasley throughout the Harry Potter franchise, has recently admitted he hasn't seen most of the magical movies he starred in.

"I've probably seen the first three at the premieres, but after that I stopped watching them," he told Variety magazine in a new interview.

However, the 32-year-old added that he may have to catch-up on the rest of the Hogwarts adventures, after he welcomed baby Wednesday with his girlfriend Georgia Grint last year.

"I will probably have to watch them with her," he joked.

Rupert has previously stated that he feels awkward when watching the movies, as he feels starring as a main character makes him feel uncomfortable.

"I think being in things ruins them for me... I can't enjoy Harry Potter any more, not as a fan-it's just not the same," he told Radio Times.

It was recently rumoured that there was going to be a new Harry Potter TV series for American streaming service HBO Max, and while details are sparse on what to expect (or even whether the rumours were true), Rupert does not expect to suit up as Ron once again.

"It'll be weird if it was a continuation kind of thing," he said of the rumours. "I weirdly feel quite protective of that character. Even when I saw the stage shows, it was a very strange experience. ... If it's like a different group of friends, I guess it would be interesting."

In other Harry Potter news, fans were blown away when discovered Tom Felton's grandfather also starred in the franchise.

Tom, who played Hogwarts bully Draco Malfoy, revealed on Instagram his grandpops was often used as a background extra, and can be seen on screen multiple times during Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

All this nostalgia is enough to make us rewatch all the films again...
