Ice Cream Man Rupert Grint

Rupert Grint is going on a road trip in an ice cream van.

The 21-year-old actor is looking forward to a leisurely summer when shooting ends on the two 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' films - the final movies in the franchise in which he plays wizard Ron Weasley - after spending time improving the vehicle to make it driveable.

He said: "I've just had it done up because when I got it, it was a bit rough.

"I don't use it much in the winter but now it's open season with the weather improving.

"It's not the most practical vehicle and I've stopped playing the music because you get young kids running out of their houses trying to buy a Cornetto. It's basically a kitchen on wheels but I love it. I've always wanted one."

Despite his excitement about his trip, Rupert is sad to be leaving the 'Harry Potter' franchise after nine years, even though he admits it did affect his friendships.

He explained in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It feels a bit strange now that it's coming to an end because it's been such a massive part of my life.

"There's nothing I'd really change, except perhaps my school days. Whenever I got back after filming it was hard to adjust because you had missed all the in-jokes and school trips and I felt a bit out of it."
