Even though the Harry Potter franchise came to an end nearly a decade ago, Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley throughout the series, still hasn’t seen most of the films.
Grint admitted as much during his recent interview with Variety, saying that while he saw the first three installments, The Philosopher’s Stone, The Chamber Of Secrets, and The Prisoner Of Azkaban, at their premieres, he then didn’t bother with the subsequent films.
“I’ve probably seen the first three at the premieres, but after that I stopped watching them.”

However it sounds as though Grint is finally going to finish off the Harry Potter franchise and watch The Goblet Of Fire, The Order Of The Phoenix, The Half-Blood Prince, and both parts of The Deathly Hallows.
And that’s all because of his daughter, who was born in May, 2010. “But now that I have a daughter, I will probably have to watch them with her.”
This isn’t the first time that Grint has admitted that he hasn’t seen most of the entries to the Harry Potter franchise. Back in 2018, he told the Radio Times that he was still unable to do so because the experience of making them was just too recent.
Grint told them, “I think those early ones are OK. More time has passed. I can detach myself a bit more from that kid. I did see Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone not long ago, for the first time since the premiere, and I actually enjoyed looking back. But the more recent ones I definitely couldn’t do.”
