The 30-year-old actor, who starred as Ron Weasley in the money-spinning film series, said leaving the role behind was kind of a relief for him.

”The line between Ron and me became thinner with each film and I think we became virtually the same person. Theres a lot of me in Ron and moving on was a massive adjustment because it was such a constant part of my life,” Grint told The Guardian.

”I dont want to liken it to coming out of prison because it wasnt a prison, but it did feel like stepping out of an institution. It was nice to breathe the fresh air and now Im really enjoying stepping further away from that blue-screen world,” he added.

The actor said he even contemplated quitting the Harry Potter franchise while he was filming one of the movies. ”There were definitely times when I thought about leaving. Filming Harry Potter was a massive sacrifice; working from such a young age for such long periods and I definitely remember thinking during one extended break, This whole thing is so all consuming, do I really want to go back? Maybe its just not for me. I guess I was probably just being a teenager,” he said.

He added, “Finishing Harry Potter was surreal. It was a very strange feeling but it came at the right time as we were all ready to move on but after the final shot it was quite weird to think that was it. It was disarming and at that point I didnt really know what was happening. I felt a bit lost.”
