Rupert Grint on RPattz's Success

For Rupert Grint, filming of the final "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" movie wraps in June. Grint, along with co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, will put to bed the project that he has worked on for half of his 21 years. "It'll be strange saying goodbye," Grint tells The Independent.

"I've loved every minute of Harry Potter. Yes, it'll be quite sad to see it go. But I'm also looking forward to being a bit more free and seeing what else comes along." Grint has already taken advantage of what little time he has off between "Potter" movies to shoot "Cherrybomb," which ventures away from the world of wizards and into the world of teen drinking, drugs, and sex.

Grint calls his sex scenes "nerve-wracking" but admits they're not as daring as Radcliffe's full-frontal Broadway run in "Equus."

"I don't think I could. Just being on stage would be quite a scary thing, let alone with no clothes on. It takes a lot of courage," he says.

Grint also comments on another co-star, "Twilight's" Robert Pattinson, who was once far better known as Harry Potter's schoolmate Cedric Diggory than as Edward Cullen. "Good luck to him. I get recognised occasionally but nothing like that," he says. "It's crazy. You just can't really go anywhere. I've got a much more manageable existence."

Though sex, drugs, and rock and roll may not find their way into "Harry Potter," the characters are growing up, especially in the final film. "I have hair extensions for the latter part of the film," Grint says. "Ron gets a bushier hairstyle because they're living rough and camping out. Me and Dan have got stubble as well!"
