Who Is Rupert Grint
He’s the frumpy redhead whose, let’s face it, goofy smile and schoolboy charm keep us coming back for more. Rupert grew up in Hertfordshire, England with one brother and three sisters and became interested in theater at an early age. With his fiery red hair, Rupert was hard to miss and like his Harry Potter onscreen counterpart, he wasn’t always the most put together. He was known to constantly lose things, from his cell phone to his keys. A part of the Top Hat Stage and Screen School, one of Rupert’s first parts was that of a fish in a production of Noah’s Ark.
English actor Rupert Grint has a net worth of $50 million dollars, as of 2020.
‘Weasley’ing His Way Into Harry Potter
Rupert grew up reading J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series so when he heard that they were holding auditions for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, he jumped at the opportunity to try out for his favorite character, Ron—he even submitted a videotape to casting directors of himself rapping about why he should get the part.
Rupert stood out from the scores of applications, to say the least, and landed a call back. The rest is history—from the first installment which made over $30 million on the first day to the next five installments (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), Rupert immediately went from absentminded kid to Hollywood sensation.
Life After Ron
Taking a moment to dismount his Quidditch broom, Rupert found time to star in the 2006 film, Driving Lessons opposite Julie Walters and Laura Linney. The coming-of-age comedy put Rupert on the map in terms of breaking away from his typecasted wizard role. He then went on to star in the U.K. film, Cherrybomb, in which he played an adolescent in a world of sex and drugs. He lived up to the movie’s tagline: Two guys. One girl. Game on. He also starred in the 2010 comedy Wild Target with Emily Blunt and Bill Nighy.
But just because he ventured out from his star-making role, doesn’t mean he’s lost a bit of the “Ron Weasley” that has rubbed off on him. Rupert, like his character, is arachnophobic. He also is known for his outlandish, spur of the moment decisions—just after earning his driver’s license, Rupert decided to buy an ice cream truck to drive around and play music out of.
It seems as though, for Rupert, art imitates life. He’s the same disheveled, goofy character on and off screen—and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
