Rupert Grint was so overwhelmed during the London premiere of the final Harry Potter film, he walked out of the star-studded screening.

The British actor has played Ron Weasley in the wizarding franchise since the first movie in 2001, and wrapped filming on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 last year.

It made its debut in the U.K. capital last Thursday, and Grint admits the screening was so emotional for him he refused to watch the entire movie.

He tells MTV News, "In London, the premiere we've just had, I couldn't sit through it. I caught a bit (of the film). It is really sad.

"There's a scene where all three of us are on the bridge after the battle, the castle is on fire… there's a weird parallel between that and our lives. That always gets me."

Check out our coverage from the NYC premiere below. The movie opens July 15.
