‘Potter star’ enjoys indie filmmaking

Written by Mayer Nissim

Rupert Grint has said that he enjoys the speed of independent filmmaking compared to big-budget blockbusters.

The Harry Potter actor has been cast in indie thriller romance Cherrybomb alongside Robert Sheehan, Kimberley Nixon and James Nesbitt, Blag reports.

Grint said: “I really enjoy it because it is a totally different world. I think we do get a bit spoilt on Harry Potter.

“I really prefer the pace of these sorts of films. On this one you do maybe seven scenes a day – so it moves really quickly. It’s exciting.”

Shot on location in Northern Ireland, Cherrybomb was written by Daragh Carville and is the first feature from co-directors Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D’Sa.

Last month, Grint said it was a surreal experiencefilming sex scenes alongside Kimberly Nixon for the film and admitted that the pair were both nervous.
