Beginning in 2002, Grint began to work outside of the Harry Potter franchise, playing a co-leading role in Thunderpants.
He has had starring roles in Driving Lessons, a dramedy released in 2006, and Cherrybomb, a drama film of limited release in 2010.
Grint was cast as Ron at the age of 11, having previously acted only in school plays and at his local theatre group.
From 2001 to 2011, he starred in all eight Harry Potter films alongside Daniel Radcliffe playing as Harry Potter and Emma Watson playing as Hermione Granger.
In fact, Grint said one of his Potter pals was in the audience at Thursday’s premiere. So yeah, we always kind of support each other, it’s great.” Earlier this week, Emma Watson revealed the cast has a group chat and Grint smiled when asked about it. Ed Westwick, Dougray Scott, Lucien Laviscount, and Luke Pasqualino also star in the series. You can follow Blanche Johnson on Twitter @blanche FOXLA.
Tom Felton, aka Harry Potter baddie Draco Malfoy, tells Metro about his secret boy crush, why he cringes when he sees himself on screen, and whether we can expect to see him stripping off on stage like Daniel Radcliffe did. Alan Rickman , Michael Gambon , Helena Bonham Carter â theyâre all wonderful people and very helpful and inspiring. It was one of my favourite films when I was younger and I asked how he did certain scenes. It took me six years to work up the courage to ask him. On my last day, we were at Kingâs Cross station in make-up, which made us look 19 years older. Iâll take my clothes off â whatever the job requires.
Not so with Rupert Grint, aka Ron Weasley, whose on-screen first kiss with Emma Watson may have sped the heart rates of shippers, but seems to be something he would rather block out.
In case you’ve forgotten what that rather titanic story moment looks like, here’s a reminder: at the “Celebration of Harry Potter”event at Universal Studios, Florida, Grint remembers the scene by not remembering it.”I never look back at that scene,” he confessed.
His first film project following the end of the Harry Potter series was the 2012 anti-war film, Into the White, in which he has a supporting role.Unlike the vast majority of young actors, Watson and Radcliffe have no financial reason to ever act again in their lives; they have the freedom to take jobs only because they want them, not because they need to pay the rent.It’s interesting, then, to see the different motivations behind their choices.Perhaps fair enough — no one wants to critique their own kissing style on a 20 foot screen — but for the actor, the squeamishness isn’t just about performance. '” Luckily, despite their awkwardness, the actors nailed the scene in a single take, sparing them both death by anxiety. It was such a huge moment and there was so much expectation,” Grint recalled.“I’ve known Emma since she was literally 9 years old and we had this very brother-sister relationship,” Grint continued. I have a memory of her face getting closer and closer. We’re so glad that both actors have moved out of the awkward stage and survived the curse of the child actor to have successful post-Potter careers.Rupert Grint, the lovable Ron Weasley from "Harry Potter," takes on a new role as executive producer and the posh character Charlie Cavendish in the new scripted Crackle series, "Snatch." ”It was really exciting," he told Fox News at the premiere in Los Angeles on Thursday. I mean I didn’t take a huge role in the producing, but it was kind of [a] more exploratory kind of thing.” He said producing the TV show based on the 2000 film by the same name showed him a “different perspective.” “And I learned a lot, and it’s definitely something I would like to do more of,” he revealed.
