Los Angeles, Jan 31 (PTI) Actor Rupert Grint has opened up about his experience of starring as Ron Weasley in the “Harry Potter” franchise for over a decade and how he wanted a break “to reflect on everything”.

The British star, who played Ron from age 11 to 22 said, spoke at length about the career-defining franchise which comprises eight films based on author JK Rowling's fantasy novel series.

“In the movies ('Harry Potter'), we merged into one. By the end of it, I was playing myself. The lines were blurred,” Grint told the online American women's magazine Bustle.
