Emma Watson used doubles: Rupert Grint

The actor talks about Watson's double, the last film, make-up and more

London: Actress Emma Watson had to use "doubles" during the filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 due to her university commitments, says her co-star Rupert Grint.

Watson, 21, who portrays Hermione Granger in the popular wizard franchise, was pursuing college at Brown University in the US while the shooting was on.

And Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, said that special techniques had to be employed because she wasn't always available, reported Contactmusic.com

"She wasn't here a lot, really. We had to shoot around her, really, because she had commitments for her university. She had a lot of doubles. They made a mask of Emma's face, a prosthetic for wide shots."

"She was there for big days and really important scenes and stuff. But I don't know how she did it, really. It'd be so weird to be in that school environment and then be on set. I couldn't do it," said Grint.

The actor also said that the last of the 'Harry Potter' movie, which required the characters to age, was a "deteriorating" experience.

"It was really quite terrifying, sitting in the makeup chair and gradually watching your face kind of deteriorate.

Initially, we had to re-shoot the end. I had a massive fat suit. We had to learn how to move like an older person. We had kids as well. I had this weird Donald Trump kind of hairstyle," added Grint.
