Rupert says it feels like the cast have grown up together

Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint has said he'll be sad when filming for the series comes to an end.

The cast are working on the final two instalments of the epic run of movies.

He told Newsbeat: "I'm just trying to make the most of it really because it is going to end. I think it is going to be sad, but I'm ready to move on as well.

"At the moment we've got so much to do. Because it's two films it's going to take a year."

Since the latest movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, there's been more of a romantic element to the films which means Rupert has just had to film a kiss with co-star Emma Watson.

'Dreading kiss'

He admitted that snogging Emma, who plays Hermione Granger in the movie, was a bit weird.

It's been quite a long few years and we've kind of grown up with each other and gone through a lot

"We were dreading it to be honest, because we've grown up together and it just seemed wrong really," he said.

"It was fine. We just really believed we were Ron and Hermione and not Rupert and Emma and it was OK. It was only a few takes, so it didn't last long."

Most of the main cast members have worked on Harry Potter since the first movie was released back in 2001.

Rupert says they all plan to keep in touch as they've been friends for so long.

He said: "We get on great. It's been quite a long few years and we've kind of grown up with each other and gone through a lot. We're close. It's good.

"Emma's going to university and she'll be busy and stuff but hopefully we'll all stay in touch. We all get on."
