Rupert Grint is opening up about life as a dad!
While promoting the upcoming second season of his Apple TV+ series Servant, the 32-year-old actor gushed about being a dad to newborn daughter Wednesday.
“It was something I never really had much of an idea of, that kind of love. It’s a very different love,” Rupert shared with Comicbook.com.
News broke back in April that Rupert and girlfriend Georgia Groome were expecting their first child together. The couple welcomed daughter Wednesday in May, and Rupert shared the first photo with his daughter back in November.
Also in his interview, Rupert said that becoming a dad was able to help him “get into the headspace” of the characters on Servant.
“The grief, what it means to lose a child, is kind of unimaginable and kind of hones in on that you would do anything to get your child back,” Rupert explained. “So yeah, it’s definitely helped in some ways.”
He also joked that Servant is “the worst show to be part of if you’ve just become a parent.”
Rupert added, “Because we filmed this season in kind of two halves really, because of the [coronavirus] pandemic — I had the baby during the kind of down period when we were in lockdown and came back with the baby for the for the second part. It’s very strange.”
Season two of Servant will debut on Apple TV+ on Friday, January 15. Watch the trailer here!
