Rupert Grint again plays the youngest Weasley brother and best friend to Harry Potter. Although Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was Rupert’s first foray into the world of professional acting, his natural talent has earned him world wide critical and public acclaim and a British Critic’s Circle nomination for Best Newcomer.
Since filming the first Harry Potter film, he has gone onto to star along side Simon Callow and Stephen Fry as a young madcap professor in Peter Howitt’s Thunderpants. He of course most recently starred again as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Rupert is 15-years-old and is the eldest of five children. Prior to winning the role of Ron Weasley, he performed in school productions and with the local theatre drama group. Productions included the role of the gangster Rooster in Annie and a production of Peter Pan and Rumplestiltskin in the Grimm Tales.
