Grint has been enjoying life after "Potter," which came to a close with the eighth and final installment earlier this summer, and was recently spotted at the V Festival in Essex, England, over the weekend.

"It's going to take a while to really sink in - it was quite a shock really. It all seemed to end quite suddenly but now the film's out it is kind of closure and I'm excited to move on," he tells the Press Association while at the festival.

"It has kind of been this bubble - it's like graduating I guess. We've all learned so much," he adds. "We've all shared this quite unique experience together and we'll always stay in touch.

Grint will next be seen in the World War 2 drama "Comrade."

"It was something very different and just quite refreshing just to play a different character," he tells Hello Magazine about his role in the film.
