- Rupert Grint has spoken out about how it was to work on the Harry Potter movies series, feeling like the sets, people and filming process were never-ending

- Overall, Rupert was grateful for the people who made the experience bearable
Most Harry Potter fans who grew up watching the show know Rupert Grint as the boy who played the role of Ron Weasley.
Rupert was a source of happiness and relief for most of his fans but what they did not know was he was not taking the experience all that well.
The Thespian, who made 2000s so magical, said though filming was a great experience but he always felt like he wanted to do something else.
The celebrity was grateful for the people who were like family to him.
“The movies take a year to shoot. I mean, it was a great experience and such a nice kind of family atmosphere. It was always kind of all the same crew we grew up with,” Rupert said.
The actor described the long working hours as some form of a sentence.
To some extent, Harry Potter suffocated Rupert and it seemed like it was never coming to an end.
“It just never ended. Every year we came back, and it was kind of like ‘Groundhog Day.’ It was the same sets. It was the same people,” the star continued.
Briefly.co.za also reported that Rupert Grint rose to international stardom when he was just a kid. The actor was cast in the film versions of the wildly popular Harry Potter book series as a main character called "Ron Weasley."
Despite the franchise having come to an end years ago, the popularity of the stories has not waned. Rupert recently joined Instagram and managed to break and set a record while doing so.
The Guinness World Records announced that when Rupert joined the social media app, he managed to smash the record for fastest time to reach one million followers on Instagram.
Rupert created his account, @rupertgrint, and amassed a million followers just 241 minutes later. That means it took four hours and one minute for one million people to follow the actor on Instagram. The previous record-holder was beloved nature conservationist Sir David Attenborough, who took four hours and 44 minutes to achieve the feat.
