Film stars in action at Hjelle

The centre of Hjelle in Oppstryn was turned into a war-dominated area last week in connection with the filming of the film “Comrade.” Harry Potter star Rupert Grint was one of the international actors who were in action.

– It’s really fun to film a film in Norway. It’s an experience and a challenge, Rupert Grint says, who is best known for playing Harry Potter’s best friend Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films.

He was in the film because he liked the script and thought that the film portrays a different side to the Second World War.

Thursday, he and the rest of the actors took part of the action when some of the film scenes from Hjelle were shot. The scenes take place towards the end of the film when the soldiers are taken prisoner and had to be transported further by boat to Stryn.

The antiwar film “Comrade” is directed by Petter Næss, which focuses on incidents that took place on Strynefjellet in April 1940. A German plane was shot down by a British plane. When the British had to do an emergency landing, all the survivors had to seek shelter in the same cabin.
