Harry Potter might have come to an end, but decades later, we are still getting enough content to not let it go. One of the lead stars has revealed that they would love to return to the character again.
Our beloved character, Ron Weasley played by Rupert Grint; has revealed that he would love to reprise his role; even though there are no plans for the franchise to make a comeback. Rupert played the role of Harry Potter’s best friend.
However, the actor has revealed that if he ever got a chance to get back to it, he will take it. “I don’t know. And I mean, never say never,” he said. “I would never say, ‘Absolutely no’. It was a huge part of my life and I’m very fond of that character and their stories.”
Rupert shared that he would be up for it at the right time. He also said that he does not know what capacity that would be. The Harry Potter franchise has been expanded backward to the time when Albus Dumbledore, Gellert Grindelwald, and Newt Scamander were young.
The new characters have been developed in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them films. However, there are no rumors or plans to take a step forward beyond The Deathly Hallows. It is yet to be seen, although the stage show, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child focus on Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s children.
Meanwhile, Rupert is busy promoting the second season of M Night Shyamalan’s dark Apple TV+ horror series, Servant. He is also adjusting to his new role as a father as he and Georgia Groome welcomed their baby girl last year.
Tom Felton Hinted At A Harry Potter Reunion
The actor revealed how Servant is the worst show to be a part of especially if you have just become a dad. The horror show revolves around a family’s grief after losing a child as the characters go down a dark path.
“We filmed this season in kind of two halves really, because of the pandemic,” he said. “I had the baby during the kind of down period when we were in lockdown and came back with the baby for the second part.
Rupert further added how strange it was and how it has changed his perspective on things but also in a helpful way. He said it was something he had never really had many ideas about.
Tom Felton had hinted that he has something special planned to mark the 19th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in November. The actor, as we all know, played Draco Malfoy in the fan-favorite franchise. And he still seems to be sharing a very special bond with his Harry Potter co-stars. Yes, it includes our beloved Harry, Ron and Hermoine played by Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson respectively.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight on October 17, Tom hinted that fans may have the blessing of seeing the cast reunite again as they celebrate the anniversary. The 19th anniversary will be marked on November 14.
The actor revealed he is planning some sort of digital celebration. He said, “I’m trying to wrangle all the oldies back together again to celebrate the achievement, really.”
The cast has worked together with each other for 10 whole years, which basically makes them a family. The actor said that it has been nice to have a little time off the camera and reconnect with the friends he made while filming Harry Potter.
Tom Reveals Desire To Work With Daniel
Tom revealed that he saw the Weasley Twins, played by James and Oliver Phelps. He said, “We went out to play some golf. Always chatting with a lot of the other guys on WhatsApp and staying in touch with them and making sure everything’s alright.”
Malfoy is one of the many villains of the franchise and the actor said despite that he gets immense support. Tom said Draco is great as he has so many layers and is highly misunderstood. However, he also agreed and said “he’s also a bit of a git”.
The actor said, “He needs a hug really. I think maybe people feel sorry for him, he needs a bit of affection”. He revealed that over the years he has reunited with a lot of his former co-stars. However, he said he has not got the opportunity to share the screen with them since the final film of the Harry Potter franchise.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released back in 2011. Tom and Daniel seem eager to reunite again, despite their characters being at different ends.
Tom revealed back in 2019, “We do want to work together on some things or another. Daniel and I talk about one day I’ll get to be the good guy and he gets to play the villain. So yeah, you never know. They’ll bring us all back for a proper reunion one day.”
