Rupert Grint In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast

    • TV & Film

Rupert Grint was unsure who he was as an actor and artist after the seven-film “Harry Potter” series came to an end. “I started realizing that somewhere along the line there was a huge sacrifice I'd made. I'd lost something,” he says. Then he remembered a piece of advice from fellow “Potter” alum, the late, great Alan Rickman: Go and do theater.

“I think it's really important, when you've been from where I'd come from—this huge machine that started to define me—to feel the fear [of theater],” Grint says. “I felt very human again.”

In this episode of “In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast,” Grint walks us through the twists and turns of his magical, unlikely career—from the marathon auditions that landed him his “Harry Potter” role, to the uncertainty of his post-franchise life, to the artistic resurgence that led him to M. Night Shyamalan’s eerie Apple TV+ drama, “Servant.”

Check out the episode, and watch all episodes of M. Night Shyamalan’s drama series “Servant” on Apple TV+.
