By , Audacy

Rupert Grint is best known for portraying Harry Potter’s best friend Ron Weasley in the all eight "Harry Potter" movies, but is he interested in reprising the role in the future?

Grunt told Esquire that he has mixed feelings about it, but he’s not opposed if the stars align and his former co-stars, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) are also on-board.

"I think going back now would be... I can't really imagine it. But, I mean, never say never. It would only be if everyone else wants to do the same. But yeah, no… I think just leave it," the 32-year-old revealed.

It’s been ten years since the trio starred in the magical blockbuster franchise.

They last appeared in 2011’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.”

Since then they’ve pursued other roles including Grint, who was promoting his new Apple TV+ show “Servant.”

And while they don’t get to see each other often, he explained that they will always have an inseparable bond thanks to the film’s

"It was a very unique experience that we all went through," he said, adding, "And no one really understands it and can relate to it but us. Almost kind of like astronauts. Kind of a weird experiment, I think.”

Grint’s comments come as reports swirl that HBO Max is in early talks to create a "Harry Potter" TV series.

However, HBO Max and Warner Bros. reaffirmed in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, "There are no 'Harry Potter' series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform."

In addition to exploring other projects, Grint is also enjoying being a first-time dad.

He welcomed a baby girl in May 2020 with girlfriend Georgia Groome.
