Biography of Rupert Grint

Chapter 1

Rupert Grint is a British actor best known for his role as Harry Potter's best friend, Ron Weasley in the film series based on J.K. Rowling's best-selling books.

As a schoolboy, Rupert Grint was an avid fan of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Hearing about an open casting call for the first Potter film, 10-year-old Grint submitted a self-made audition video and landed the role of Ronald Weasley. His early non-Potter film roles included Driving Lessons (2006) and Cherrybomb (2009), and he went on to small-screen success the following decade with the series Sick Note, Snatch and Servant.

Grint was born on August 24, 1988, in Harlow, Essex, England. His father, Nigel, is a racing memorabilia dealer, and his mother, Jo, is a homemaker. Grint says that his first ambition in life was to become an ice cream man, noting that it "always seemed like a really cool job."

Unlike his famed on-screen character of Ron Weasley, Grint was a well-behaved child who never showed much inclination toward mischief. "I was never the kind of kid who was destined for trouble," he says, "Probably the worst thing I did was steal a hairbrush and a Billy Goats Gruff book from a local shop. I think I went in with the intention of nicking something and I must have panicked and grabbed the first two things I saw. Clearly a life of crime wasn't for me."

Grint attended the Richard Hale Secondary School in Hertfordshire. As a schoolboy, he gained a lot of attention for his unruly bright red hair. His great-grandfather nicknamed him "Copper Knob," and his friends at school called him "Ginge," short for "ginger."
