Red Hot Right Now
J.K. Rowling says that when she was writing her "Harry Potter" books, she "seriously" considered killing off one of the main characters, Ron Weasley.
He is the red-headed best friend of main star Harry Potter and was played by Rupert Grint in the films based on the hit series. The movies have earned more than $7 billion worldwide and the final installment, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," was released in July.
After ten years, Rupert Grint is known to most movie audiences as the "Harry Potter" character Ron Weasley.
With the final film "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" breaking box office records, the actor reflected in a recent interview provided by Warner Bros. Pictures on what it was like to grow up playing a character through the eight films.
Emma Watson has been working with Rupert Grint on the "Harry Potter" films since the two were children when the first film came out in 2001. Now Watson, 21, said that kissing her co-star of 10 years was a bit awkward for her.
In the final installment of the "Harry Potter" franchise, Harry Potter and his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger return to Hogwarts to find and destroy Voldemort's final horcruxes, which contain fragments of his soul. By doing so, they hope to render him mortal, so that they can finally kill him. But when Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle ever begins.
After ten years and 8 films, actress Emma Watson looks back on her "Harry Potter" acting years as a mixed blessing.
"I have spent more of my life being someone else than I have being myself," the actress told the UK Newspaper The Daily Mirror in an interview at the premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2."
Emma Watson got emotional at the world premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" in London and said that her kiss with co-star Rupert Grint was a "huge moment."
"Rupert's been like a brother to me," Watson said at the premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" on Thursday. "So, [the kiss] was obviously awkward and we also had the added pressure that this moment has been anticipated by fans worldwide since the last book was released..."
Twins James and Oliver Phelps, who play Fred and George Weasley in the "Harry Potter" movie franchise, say their fame may have helped their love lives.
"It certainly hasn't hurt it I suppose, you know. Playing good guys is fun 'cause people want to always talk to you," Oliver Phelps, who plays George Weasley, told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Chris Balish. "We've gone out with other guys who have played baddies and people are almost like, 'I'm not talking to you.' It's certainly not been a bad thing."
The 22-year-old actor talked to OnTheRedCarpet.com about the upcoming film and growing up alongside his co-stars, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe.
Fans turned out in droves to catch "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1", the next-to-last film in the hit fantasy series that stars Daniel Radcliffe as a teen wizard. The film earned $62.1 million on Friday, which includes the $24 million from midnight screenings, according to Entertainment Weekly.
