Rupert Grint sparked ‘massive hunt’ on Potter set after ‘stealing’ prop
Washington: Rupert Grint once stole a prop from the set of the ‘Harry Potter’ that forced the Warner Bros. to launch a “massive hunt”.
Grint who came to the limelight at the age of 11 playing Ron Weasley in the movie series, reportedly tried to catch hold of something he liked on the set, but thanks to the ‘strict’ Warner Bros. he had to return it back anonymously.
“Do you know, I don’t actually have many souvenirs from the past 11 years. They’re really strict about stuff like that,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying
“I remember in the first film there was this amazing big golden dragon egg that opened up and there was crystal inside.
“One afternoon I just put it in a pillowcase and smuggled it home.
“But a few days after, Warner Bros. started this massive hunt to find out who took the dragon egg, so I had to anonymously hand it in and hope no one would guess that it was me,” he added.
