Think of what it must be like to leave high school after 10 years: happy, yet melancholy.
That, at least, were the mixed emotions coming from Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as deduced by Entertainment Weekly earlier this summer, as the acting trio wrapped up the final two Harry Potter adventures.
“I’m ready to kind of move on now, I think,” Grint, 21, is quoted as saying in the latest cover story of the magazine, on sale Friday. “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.”
