Harry Potter and the Cursed Child heading to its Broadway debut this year. During the play’s cast and crew appearance at this week’s New York Comic-Con, Rupert Grint offered his support for the show’s preview.
The actor, best known as Ron Weasley in the film franchise, was at the Comic-Con to promote his psychological thriller series, Servant. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Grint shared his sentiments on the stage play based on the eight films he’s starred in.
“I saw it in London a few years ago. It’s incredible! It’s quite a strange, out-of-body experience to see,” the actor told ET.
As for if there’s ever a possibility that he’ll take on the stage to reprise his role in the production Grint says:
“I mean, never say never! It’s a great story. It’s kind of a genius extension of those characters. But I don’t know. I haven’t really thought about that.”
That enthusiastic response is all Potterheads need for affirmation. Now to let the play runners know about it!
While on hand, Grint also spoke about working with director M. Night Shyamalan on his upcoming Apple Tv+ web series. He revealed that the director was actually very close to working with him on the set of one of the Harry Potter movies.
“I learned quite recently he nearly directed one of the Harry Potter films,” Grin recalled. “The second one, possibly. I’ve always been a huge fan. I think he’s just an absolute master of the genre. And he’s just such a nice, sweet guy. That was kind of the big pull for me.”
