In a recent interview with The Weekly Reader, Dan commented on his relationship with Rupert Grint. His comments have raised some questions from fans so in an effort to clarify his comments Dan has asked several web sites to "set the record straight" regarding the interview.
I usually do not make any comment on postings on websites however, I have been made aware that a simple answer I gave in an interview to Weekly Reader re my relationship with Rupert has sent people into a maelstrom of speculation. It has shocked me that the words "I don't spend much time with Rupert" has been interpreted in so many grossly inaccurate ways.
FACT: I like Rupert, I get on with Rupert, we are friends and when we are on set together we have a good laugh.
We don't spend much time together off set - because there isn't any! Those of you who are familiar with GoF will know that there are many scenes in which Ron doesn't appear. Also, I am still at school and when I am not on set filming I am in tutoring and when Rupert is not needed for filming he is not in the studio. But, we are good friends and any suggestion otherwise is wrong.
