London: Actor Rupert Grint said that he is still coming to terms with his life after the end of Harry Potter movies.
The first Harry Potter movie was released in 2001 when he was 11 and Grint practically grew up on the sets as he acted in all eight movies.
“I can’t remember the time before the Harry Potter films and suddenly it was all over,” the Mirror quoted him as saying.
“It was such a long time, half my life, and suddenly it all came down to one scene – and we never came back,” he said.
The cinema premiere of the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, was held in July 2011, and it was one of the biggest premieres Britain had seen.
Grint said that to him, the premiere was like a closure and he woke up the next day thinking ‘there is no more Potter’.
“It felt like the premiere was closure, I felt this is really it. It has taken me a while to come fully to terms with that,” he said.
“I felt it a lot on the last day of filming when they said cut for the final time, it was a massive moment because it really has taken over my life,” he said.
However, Grint is making the most of the situation by taking it easy for a while.
“I have not been in too much of a rush to do anything really… It has been nice to catch up on a few things and have a bit of freedom,” he said.
“I haven’t been on holiday for a few years so I just did normal things really. But having control over your life is good – and having control over your own hair is great – not that I’ve done anything with it,” he added.
