EXCLUSIVE: ‘Harry Potter’ Star Rupert Grint Responds To New Trailer

That Harry Potter trailer some people say is too short or doesn’t include enough of their favorite characters? Don’t get too worked up, Rupert Grint says, it’s only a tease.

“It’s only a teaser, just to get people excited,” he told MTV News.

Speaking from the set of his new film “Cherry Bomb,” Grint hasn’t seen the trailer for “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” himself yet, but he’s looking forward to it. He was also happy to hear — despite one fan asking “Where’s Rupert Grint?” — that there is a shot of him in the trailer, as it was from one of his favorite scenes from the film.

Ron Weasley nearly dies after he drinks Professor Slughorn’s poisoned mead, a gift the professor was meant to pass on to Dumbledore, in an assasination attempt gone horribly wrong. Ron had already been poisoned in one sense — “He gets poisoned quite a bit in this film,” Grint laughed — because he ate Romilda Vane’s chocolate cauldrons (also meant for someone else, this time Harry) which were spiked with love potion. Harry rushes his friend off to the potions professor for a quick fix, only Ron goes from a bad predicament to a lethal one in mere moments. “That was a really fun scene,” Grint said.
