Rupert said: "I think it's, it's probably the worst show to be a part of if you've just become a dad.

"We filmed this season in kind of two halves really, because of the 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. So it was, yeah, it's very strange.

"It definitely has kind of changed my perspective on things but also in a helpful was something I never really had much of an idea of, it was that kind of love..."

The 31-year-old star also addressed the likelihood of him reprising his role as wizard Ron Weasley. He said, "I don't know. I mean, never say never. I would never say, 'Absolutely no.'

"It was a huge part of my life and I'm very fond of that character and their stories.

"So yeah, I mean, I'd be up for it at the right time. I don't know what capacity that would be, but yeah, we'll see." 

Season 2 of Servant premieres on Apple TV+ on Jan 15.
