Rupert Grint says that kissing Harry Potter co-star Emma Watson was like kissing his sister.

The actor, who plays Ron Weasley in the flicks, has admitted that they were both dreading the kiss.

“It sounds stupid, but I never really saw it coming,” says Rupert. “The kiss was one of the first scenes we filmed. I kind of built up this thing in my head.”

“We were both kind of dreading it really, just because we’ve known each other since we were really small. It’s like kissing your sister!”

Rupert also recently said that he finds it difficult adjusting to smaller film sets after working on the Harry Potter movies.

“It was quite an adjustment going from Harry Potter to doing the low-budget films,” he said. “It threw me a little – it’s just such a different way of making a film.”

“But I prefer the pace of low budgets because it’s much more in the moment.”
