June 09, 2009, 6:51 AM–As the release date of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince approaches, more magazines are doing HBP related features. The August issue of Sci-Fi Magazine has a huge interview with Daniel Radcliffe, Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis and David Yates. Daniel briefly talks about Rupert Grint‘s character Ron’s love entanglements and says:
“I think we tell the story pretty well. [...] All the main points of the story are there in terms of Ron’s relationship with Lavander and the fighting between him and Hermione which is obviously sexually charged.” Source: Feltbeats.
Also, Emma Watson has recently been featured in Candy mag, and also mentioned working (and talking) with Rupert:
Candy: How tough has it been in this movie starting a romance on-screen with Ron, especially since he’s played by an old friend?
Emma: Oooh! I don’t know if it’s tough. Rupert’s a really laid-back guy but I’m really looking forward to it because I quite like the romantic commedy side of it. Rupert and I end up providing light relief, as the movie gets darker. It’s funny seeing Rupert struggling in the romantic stakes.
Candy: Does working on Harry Potter feel different now that all three of you have done different projects?
Emma: Yes, and it was really nice to come back and talk to Dan and Rupert about the projects they had been working on, and how different it was to work on stage and TV. It’s given us all more confidence as actors, because we were chosen so young for the Potter films.
