Rupert Grint talks ‘Harry Potter’ award: End of film series is bittersweet

Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and the rest of the Harry Potter cast graced the red carpet of the BAFTA Awards on Sunday to talk with fans, share a moment and pick up an award. The cast was coming to the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden for the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema in 2011 Award which goes to The Harry Potter Films tonight.

“It’s something we have been doing a lot, says Rupert Grint referencing that the end of the series is near and the cast has been saying their final goodbyes to fans. “We finished filming last year,”

The Harry Potter Series definitely had its share of success spanning over a decade and basically engulfing the young actors teenage years. As the film has grown up with the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry so have the actors. Being engrossed in the characters they signed on for years ago, the cast has come to embrace the fans far more than anyone could expect.

“It’s really took me by surprise that how much this film me to me. How not doing it every day will affect my life,” said Rupert Grint.

According to red carpet fans, the cast stayed on the red carpet over two hours signing autographs, taking pictures and pleasing their fans. Who could ask for more? Definitely not Harry Potter’s fans!
