Rupert Alexander Grint was born
on 24 August 1988 in Hertfordshire, England, UK.
Although only acting in one school play before being
cast in the popular wizard series Harry Potter,
Rupert has already proved himself one of the most
recognized actors on the big screen. When he heard
that there was going to be auditions for Harry Potter
and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001),
he decided to go for it.
Unlike the other children who were auditioning,
Rupert came in with a rap that promoted the character
he was auditioning for, Ronald Weasley, and was
chosen soon afterward. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's
Stone (2001) was a
big hit, as well as its sequels.
