The whole “Harry Potter” crew is down in Florida right now to celebrate the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction at Universal Orlando. MTV is down there too, to capture it all. We spoke with Rupert Grint at the big grand opening party last night, and he got to talking about the last day of shooting on “Deathly Hallows” and how it felt for him closing out such a life-changing decade.
“It was quite a sad day. I didn’t know quite how it would affect me,” he said. “They played this video which kind of brought it all back really. I just kind of realized how long we’d actually spent [at Leavesden Studios] and with all those people. It was quite emotional.”
Fortunately for the sad sacks on set, Grint came prepared. With his ice cream truck! “I drove it down on the last day and served ice cream to everyone,” he said. “I got covered in ice cream. I haven’t quite perfected the technique [of filling cones]. It kind of came out in a jet.”
You’ve gotta love Grint. The guy stars in these “Harry Potter” movies, makes more money than most of us can conceive of… and lives out every kid’s wish, of owning his ice cream truck!
