Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy, hosted a virtual reunion of the cast of Harry Potter, on the 19th anniversary of the first film's release. Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasely, was on board and presented some funny anecdotes from the sets. Turns out, Rupert had a bit of a reputation on the sets, as he had the toughest time not laughing. If he and Daniel Radcliffe, who played the lead role, had their way, their first meeting scene would have never been filmed, as the two young actors kept laughing constantly. That's not all.

"It would always be the most inappropriate scenes, like Dumbledore's funeral was a particularly bad one," said Grint. "For some reason, I found that absolutely hilarious."

"And yeah, once you start laughing, it's very hard to stop. I had a particularly bad reputation, they used to call me Go Again Grint because I could never do anything without doing it like 20 times," he added.
