Tom Felton also explains during the same interview that he has kept in touch with several former Harry Potter actors , such as Emma Watson or Rupert Grint. The details having discussed with them the popularity of the saga, which has persisted for 20 years, is quite unexpected for them: “I spoke to them not long ago, separately, and we were like ’20 years, you realize?’ It’s crazy because they are still the same. Rupert has absolutely not changed. We were amazed that this saga was even more popular today than it was back then, we were all surprised by it. happy and aware of having grown old realizing that it was just 20 years since the first film had been made. “
