Rupert Grint has hinted that Ron Weasley might be making a comeback! The actor joined Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on the “This Morning” couch on Jan. 26 to discuss his upcoming psychological thriller “Knock at the Cabin” with costar Ben Aldridge, and announced he wouldn’t be opposed to a sequel to Harry Potter. .
“Yeah, I think if the time was right and everyone came back, I would come back,” he said. “He’s a character that’s important to me and I grew up with him – we kind of became the same person. I also feel quite protective of him. It was my whole childhood.” Can anyone reach Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson ASAP?
The 34-year-old, who had never been on ‘This Morning’ before despite “always wanted to be”, also opened up about his American accent which he uses on ‘Knock at the Cabin’. Using a voice coach, he hilariously divulged that the key to a good accent is tongue placement. “I did it [before] so I get used to it. You have to be aware of what you do with your tongue in your mouth when you speak, it’s very different. Americans have a very different form of language in what they do with it, I don’t know! It’s very technical!” Of course, he also adopted an American accent for “The Servant” so the tongue placement seemed to work.
Aldridge added of the thriller: “I’m really proud of the movie which put a single parent family at the center of the film and treats that family — as they should — like a normal loving family, I really believe in the power of representation and has the power to change our perception and for us to learn about ourselves.” When Grint was asked why he always comes back to spooky projects, he added, “I know! I need to do a Christmas comedy or something…”
Grint’s penchant for spooky things didn’t stop at his job, either. The actor recently opened up about naming his daughter on Wednesday after the famous Addams Family. Speaking on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’, he joked that he was predicting a ‘Wednesday boom’ following the success of the recent Netflix series. If Grint’s predictions are correct, then we’re also living in hope for a Harry Potter sequel.
