Rupert Grint Gets a Break From Weasley in "Driving Lessons"

Posted by Fara Kearnes on August 15, 2006 4:01 PM |

Rupert Grint picRupert Grint was amazed when he was offered the part of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, because he lacked acting experience. He says he got an audition by writing to British children's news program Newsround. He revealed, "I just sent a letter, then I got the audition. I had done a few school plays... I was a fish in Noah's Ark."

Despite his notoriety and success, Rupert admits that he is fed up with the monotony of Harry Potter movies, and recently jumped at the chance to be in an independent film called "Driving Lessons."

"It's good to do someone different. Harry Potter films take two years each," he says. "This one has no special effects, no blue screen - it's proper - real life."

Plus, the 17-year-old actually gets to do a bit of driving in the film - real life, not the flying magical car from the wizard movie. "[My character] Ben’s a bit of a loner and a bit of a geek. And I got to do a bit of driving. I wish people would take more notice of learner drivers. I’ve had some close calls. Because I’ve been learning I’ve been driving round with my dad – I get beeped quite a lot."

"Driving Lessons" will be released in the UK on September 6, and in the US on October 13.
