I’ve been so lucky. Alan Rickman quickly comes to mind. He had an amazing presence when he walked on set. There are so many incredible people I could list – Julie Walters and Ralph Fiennes, and I’ve early memories of Richard Harris. Back then I didn’t appreciate it as much as I do now. When I first started they were just nice people, now I’m older and have watched more films, I realise it was amazing.”  - Rupert Grint about working with amazing actors

“Oh, I loved my [onscreen] children! I loved them! The fourth film, I wasn’t in it, and I got postcard from them saying, ‘Come back, Mom! Dad can’t control us!’  
The whole feel of the job was very homey and very family. I’ve never known a film [series] like it. I suppose it’s because we were there for 10 years and we saw the children grow up and the rest of us grow old. It didn’t ever feel like work.”
—Julie Walters (Mrs. Weasley)
