Grint To Give Up Acting?
British actor RUPERT GRINT is worried about life after HARRY POTTER - because he is doubtful his acting abilities will guarantee him movie work.
The 20 year old has played Potter's best friend Ronald Weasley in the wizard franchise since 2001 - but now he's looking to the future.
But he isn't sure he has the talents for a prolonged stretch in the film industry.
Grint tells Britain's Live magazine, "It’s always at the back of my mind that acting might come to an end for me when Harry Potter finishes. I don’t know if I’m good enough to have a long career. I’ve got a bit of an inferiority complex about my acting. My self-esteem is quite low in that sense."
But the star is determined not to be typecast from his time spent in the family movies - and wants to take on more grisly roles.
Grint adds, "From here on, I don’t want to play it safe. I need to take on roles that are as far away from Harry Potter as it’s possible to get. If I’m to continue as an actor, I need to play characters that are nothing like me at all.’
"I’m a huge (Quentin) Tarantino fan – I love Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill, and if he came calling and offered me a role, I’d take it."
