Rupert Alexander Grint was born on August 24, 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 were going to be auditions for Harry Potter e a Pedra Filosofal (2001), he decided to try out for it.
Unlike the other children who were auditioning, Rupert came in with hip-hop lyrics that promoted Ronald Weasley, the character for which he was auditioning, and was chosen soon afterward. Harry Potter e a Pedra Filosofal (2001) was a big hit, as was the follow-up, Harry Potter e a Câmara dos Segredos (2002), and he has already filmed episode three, Harry Potter e o Prisioneiro de Azkaban (2004), which was released on Friday, June 4, 2004. More recently, he finished filming the fourth movie, Harry Potter e o Cálice de Fogo (2005). —IMDb
