When Rupert Grint was caught stealing Harry Potter prop
Posted June 16, 2010on:
Actor Rupert Grint made sure not to steal anything from the sets of Harry Potter this time when the filming wrapped – because last time he was caught red handed while taking a prop home as a memento.
Shooting on the final instalment in the wizard franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II has been completed in London, bringing the franchise to an end after more than a decade.
Grint admitted that he wanted to take away a souvenir, but feared movie bosses would find out after he was previously caught lifting a fake dragon””s egg.
“I took the golden egg that was in the fourth film – a dragon egg. Apparently it was worth a few thousand dollars. I put it in a pillowcase, it was with (onscreen brother) James Oliver, it was a joint effort. But they tracked it down and got it off us.” The Daily Star quoted him as saying.
“A wand I think would be nice to keep. They don””t really like things going away from the set,” he added.
