Rupert Grint said that fame is the one topic that he and his former "Harry Potters" costars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe never talk about.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Grint was discussing how he was finding fatherhood after the birth of his daughter, Wednesday, in May 2020.

Grint, who currently stars in Apple TV's horror series "Servant," told The Times that despite loving that role, he's "always toyed with the idea of walking away from acting."

Grint said: "Becoming a dad has increased those feelings. Don't get me wrong, I love working on 'Servant' and feel extremely comfortable in a TV environment," Grint said.

"But Potter happened at such a young age and I found it hard to deal with the fame side of things. If I ever do see Dan [Radcliffe] or Emma [Watson], fame is the one thing we never talk about."

Grint went on to talk about the level of fame he, Radcliffe, and Watson have thanks to "Potter," and says while he wouldn't compare them to The Beatles, he does think that the three of them experienced "a tiny bit" of the level of intense fame The Beatles had.

"I'm eternally grateful to the Potter fans and never refuse a selfie, but I do sometimes miss my anonymity," Grint said. "At least lockdown allowed me to wear a mask. I did think of having one done with Dan's face on it."

The actor, who recently said he gained a "bad reputation" while acting on "Potter" when he couldn't stop laughing during Dumbledore's funeral scene, touched on what sort of path he would take if he were ever to take the dive and walk away from acting. It turns out, Grint is a big fan of carpentry and building.

"Before lockdown I was always hanging around in B&Q, buying more tools. And I've just started my own miniature pottery production line. If Wednesday's napping I throw some clay on my wheel and make tiny jugs and bowls."

Grint, Radcliffe, Watson may not get much time to hang out together with their respective busy schedules, but Radcliffe did take the time to send Grint a congratulatory text message when his daughter was born. Radcliffe told Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live": "It's also, like, super weird for me to think that we are all at the age where we are having children but we definitely are."
