Rupert Grint was not ready when he saw someone else play his beloved ‘Harry Potter’ character, Ron Weasley.

The 28-year-old actor thought he knew what he was getting himself into when he saw ‘The Cursed Child,’ but when Ron actually made his appearance on stage, Rupert was a bit thrown off.

“I wasn’t really prepared for it. It hit me quite hard. It was kind of like an out of body experience. You’re seeing someone else take on a character that you’ve known for so long,” Rupert revealed in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I kind of grew up with Ron. I do feel like a lot of me is in that character. I have a weird relationship with Ron, where it’s kind of basically me.

And seeing it live on is very surreal. But it’s an amazing show. I actually loved it. It blows your mind to see this magic world on stage live in front of you. It’s amazing. It just shows how clever J.K. (Rowling) is to be reinventing it and making it live on in something different.”
