Photocall for 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' at Claridges Hotel in Mayfair. (Bauer Griffin)more pics »Daniel Radcliffe (Bauer Griffin)Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is just a couple of months away, but stars of the series are coming up on their 10 year anniversaries of playing the wizarding characters. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are ready to try something new.
Grint told Entertainment Weekly, "I’m ready to kind of move on now, I think. This film is a great way to finish the whole era, and it’s going to be sad, because obviously all my friends are here, but 10 years is enough."
And it doesn't help that the latest film hasn't exactly been comfortable to film. Watson and Grint are being constantly sprayed down with water on the set (they're being chased by a tsunami in the movie), and it sounds pretty cold.
Watson complained, "I hate to sound whiny, but it’s horrible. It’s miserable being wet all the time. But, you know, I was told it will look very dramatic when you see the films, so it will be worth it."
All for the sake of good cinema, right? That's Daniel Radcliffe's attitude, because he wants to end on his best note possible.
Harry's alter ego said, "This film has been hard to make, and I’ve had some of the most trying moments, both physically and mentally, than ever before.
"I wasn’t entirely thrilled with my performance in Half-Blood [Prince] -- I found it quite same-y, and didn’t think there was enough variation in it -- so I’ve worked hard to make sure that if the seventh film comes out and I’m still unhappy with it, I’ll know it won’t be from lack of trying."
