Biography

Early life
Grint was born in Watton-at-Stone, Hertfordshire, the eldest of five siblings. His mother, Jo (née Parsons), is a housewife, and his father, Nigel Grint, is a memorabilia dealer and former racing car driver.[2] He has one brother, James (born in 1990), and three sisters: Georgina (born in 1993), Samantha (born in 1996) and Charlotte (born in 1999). Before being cast in Harry Potter, he had only appeared in plays for school and his local theatre group, Top Hat Stage School. As a young child, he was once cast as a fish in a play based on the story of Noah's Ark.[3]


Career
A self-proclaimed fan of the Harry Potter book series, young Grint was interested in getting a role in the film. For his audition, he sent a video he made of himself, in which he dressed as his drama teacher, while rapping about how much he wanted the part and won the casting selection with it. After completing the first Potter film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (released in the United States as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone), he appeared as Alan A. Allen in the British comedy film Thunderpants (2002). In 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2007, he again starred as Ron Weasley in the Potter sequels Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Grint also starred in the coming-of-age story Driving Lessons with Laura Linney and Julie Walters (who acted as his character's mother, Mrs. Weasley, in the Harry Potter movies), which was released in the summer of 2006.

Also known for his radio and television voice-over work, he appeared as Nigel Molesworth in the Baggy Trousers series for BBC Radio 4[4] and voiced Peter Pan in a BBC documentary.

On 9 July 2007, Grint and fellow cast-mates Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson left imprints of their hands, feet and wands in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.[5]

While directing Prisoner of Azkaban, Alfonso Cuarón is reported to have gained the strong impression that Grint is "the likely future star out of the Hogwarts trio". [6]


Personal life
In July 2004, Grint finished Richard Hale School, taking his GCSE examinations. When not working, he enjoys learning to ride the unicycle, drawing/sketching, watching Leeds United and playing golf.[citation needed] Like the character he portrays, Ron Weasley, he has stated that he has arachnophobia.[7]

With his earnings from the "Harry Potter" series, Grint purchased an ice cream van, and stated jokingly that if his career falls out after the end of the seven part series, then he'll still have the van. According to Emma Watson from her interview with Conan O'Brien, it has all the ice cream and chocolate toppings in it.[8]

In September 2007 Rupert and his co-stars along with David Heyman & David Yates attended the National Movie Awards. He lost to his co-star Daniel Radcliffe for Best Actor.

Hair care giant Brylcreem released a list of the best and worst male hairstyles of the celebrity world in 2007 putting Rupert Grint's haircut with the top five best male film stars haircuts and his co-star,Daniel Radcliffe, in the top 5 Worst male film stars haircuts. [9]
