Rupert Grint Talks Harry Potter Group Chat And New Series

Rupert Grint, also known as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series, confirmed some information that would make any wizard wannabe jealous.  

During a Q&A for Entertainment Tonight, Emma Watson stated that she still keeps in contacts with Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert in a WhatsApp group chat. During the interview, she explained that she invited the main cast of the movie to her “Beauty and the Beast” screening on this app.

Both Tom Felton and Matthew Lewis, also known as Draco Malfoy and Neville Longbottom, were able to attend the Los Angeles screening of the film. After hearing this information, we thought it must be too good to be true. However, while in a interview with Huffington Post, he confirmed the allegations.

He's a truly good man, some say the purest of us all, and I was really much happier to see him than I like to let on. Superb weekend at @universalorlando seeing old friends at the #HPCelebration.

Grint states “It’s kind of the way we stay in contact. We see each other occasionally, but I haven’t seen everyone in a long time. It’s quite hard to socially see everyone, so being in the same room with everybody is usually quite surreal and not that easy. We shared such a unique experience and such a strange childhood. We’ll always kind of have that together. Again, we’re always going to be there for each other, [and] support each other.”

For his new Crackle series, “Snatched” - Rupert starts as Charlie, “one of a group of smalltime hustlers who gets caught up in the world of organized crime.” Super elaborated on the character to Huffington Post, “Charlie is quite a unique character. I don’t think I’ve actually met anyone quite like him. There are not many similarities between him and Ron.”


While he was practicing for the role, Rupert watched a series of Prince Harry videos. His original royal inspiration “evolved to something different” as time went on.


Hopefully, Rupert is using the group chat in order to get his Harry Potter cast mates to the different premieres. Bonnie Wright, who played Grint’s sister Ginny in the series, attended one of the premiers of the show.
