Rupert Grint: ‘Kill me before I kiss Hermione!’

Rupert Grint seems to love every part of being in the Harry Potter movies – apart from his character falling for Hermione.

Most fans reckon Harry’s best mates are going to get together as they get older, but Rupert isn’t so sure it’s a good idea.

He told CBBC Newsround he’s not looking forward to the Ron and Hermione storyline.

Rupert isn’t looking forward to getting friendly with Hermione

He said: “I hope it doesn’t happen. I hope Ron gets killed off before they actually do something.”

Unless you’ve been hiding under a box while the stars promote the film you’ll know Rupert’s favourite scene was the one with the slugs – , but he revealed he also wasn’t keen on filming the bits with the spiders.

He said: “I hate them – even rubber ones I get scared of.

“Luckily some of them were CGI [computer graphics]. But that big car-sized one, that was actually there unfortunately.”

And like Emma Watson he also said being a big movie star has changed the way he gets treated at school – although not from the other kids.

He said: “My friends have been great – they treat me normally. The teachers suck up, they really do. But other than it’s been fine.”
