“We sat down and had a chat. Having met Rupert Grint, I based one of our lead characters, Charlie Cavendish, around certain qualities that I saw in Rupert: this guy who’s really funny, smart, very modest - and super talented.” - writer Alex de Rakoff of Snatch TV. (2017)
While I did love working on that film, and I will always love the character I got to play, I do want to distance myself from that franchise. I don't want to be known for that role alone, I want to be known for all my projects!

Rupert’s very laid back… He’s actually quite shy. I know that’s hard to believe, but he’s less comfortable than Dan. Dan’s the entertainer, the performer. He’s very comfortable with an audience. He’s very good at interviews. He’s very articulate. He likes to get a laugh whereas Rupert’s a bit more shy, and it takes longer to get to know him. That doesn’t mean that Rupert is any less a nice guy. He’s the one to watch because he will lull you into a false sense of security, and then he’ll come out with an absolutely killer one-liner and have everyone roaring with laughter. He’s a very good comedian in that sense…
“There’s a scene where Rupert’s brother dies and the amazing thing about Rupert is that he’s a very self-contained human being. It’s very rare that you see him get emotional. The minute the camera rolls, he just becomes this other thing and he has so much, and I’m like, “Where does that come from?” Anyway, there’s a scene where he cries and I remember having to remind myself to keep acting because I just wanted to go, “You’re amazing! That was amazing!” I don’t know where he pulled it from.” - Emma Watson. (2010)
