London: Rupert Grint has admitted that he had to walk out of the London premiere of the final ‘Harry Potter’ film because he was overwhelmed with emotion.

The actor has played Ron Weasley in the wizarding franchise since the first movie in 2001, and wrapped filming on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 last year (10).

It made its debut in the capital last Thursday, and Grint admits that the star-studded screening was so emotional for him he refused to watch the entire movie.

"In London, the premiere we`ve just had, I couldn`t sit through it. I caught a bit (of the film). It is really sad,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling MTV News.

"There`s a scene where all three of us are on the bridge after the battle, the castle is on fire... there``s a weird parallel between that and our lives. That always gets me,” he added.
