Biography

While in primary school, Rupert Grint took an avid interest in theatre and started performing in school productions, joining the Top Hat Stage and Screen School, a local theatre group that cast him as a fish in Noah’s Ark and a donkey in another nativity play.

A fan of the Harry Potter books, Rupert chose to try out for the role of protagonist Ron Weasley, one of Harry Potter’s best friends at Hogwarts. Having seen a Newsround report about the open casting, he sent in a video of himself rapping about how he wished to receive the role. His attempt was successful as the casting team asked for a meeting with him.

The release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2001 was Grint’s debut screen performance. Breaking records for opening-day sales and opening-weekend takings, it was the highest-grossing film of that year. Rupert himself won a Satellite Award in the category of “Outstanding New Talent”, and a Young Artist Award for “Most Promising Young Newcomer”.
