Rupert Grint has revealed about the making of Harry Potter movies and described the experience as “suffocating” at times because he was continuously doing the same thing over the course of ten years.

Grint played the role of Ronald Weasley in the franchise appeared on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast to talk about working on the films from 2001 to 2011.

“There was a time where it felt quite suffocating because it was heavy going because it was every day for 10 years in the end,” Grint told Shepard. He further added, “Sometimes it definitely felt like, ‘I want to do something else. See what else is out there. It just never ended. Every year, we came back. And it was kind of like ‘Groundhog Day’ because it was the same sets. It was the same people. But it was great. I loved it.”

The actor also added that even though he worked with the same people for a decade, making the hit franchise was a great experience as the cast and crew became like family to him. Even after so many years, the actor still hasn’t watched all the Potter films because it feels too soon for him. Although, he did mention that he has watched The Sorcerer’s Stone twice. “It still feels too soon really. I can’t detach myself fully. I can’t face it,” Grint said.
