  Rupert: Hard time at school after Harry
Updated 22 November 2002, 11.40
Rupert said his teachers suck up to him at school
Rupert Grint has admitted he had a tough time settling back into school after months spent on the Harry Potter film set.

The teenage star, who plays Ron Weasley, said it was weird going to school again after such a long break.

"I don't really like it very much," he said on Channel 4's Ri:se. "I got a detention when I came back from the film premiere because I forgot my kit three times. I had to clear up the sports shed."

Nervous

Rupert as Ron Weasley
"My teachers suck up a bit as well. I shouldn't have said that!"

Rupert, like all the other young Potter stars, has a private tutor on the set, but he has to go back to school in between filming.

He also said he gets a bit edgy when he first meets really famous actors, like Kenneth Branagh, who plays Gilderoy Lockhart in the Chamber of Secrets.

Ron admitted he thumped his Thunderpants co-star for a bet
"I get quite nervous when I meet them because they're really famous but once you get to know them, they're really down to earth and nice," he said.

Rupert was on Ri:se with his Thunderpants co-star, Bruce Cook.

Rupert admitted he actually thumped Bruce in a scene where he has to slap his face.

"One of the crew members paid me 5 to actually whack him in the film," Rupert laughed. "But it was really fun to film."
