Rupert Grint


Rupert Grint



Rupert Michael Grint is born on the 24th of August 1988, in a small town in Hertfordshire, England. He is the eldest of 5 children. He has got one brother (James) and three sisters (Georgina, Samantha and Charlotte). His father (Nigel) is a race-car memorial dealer, his mother (Jo) a homemaker.

Rupert likes to draw, play pool,  loves soccer, likes to swim and ride his bike. Since his 14th birthday he tries to ride a unicycle (because riding it looks really good on TV). Last summer Rupert started to play golf. One of his favourite hobbies is sleeping. Another hobby is playing video games (Medal of honor) on his game console.

Rupert's favourite actor is Jim Carrey. He likes movies like Shrek, Ace Ventura, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Dumb and Dumber.

Rupert likes all kinds of music, but his favourite is rap. He also plays the guitar.

Rupert attends an all boys-school in his hometown. His favourite subjects in school is arts, science, biology, physics and chemistry. Mixing potions and stuff came in handy with the first Potter movie.


On his audition tape for Harry Potter, he performed a rap he wrote promoting himself for the role of Ron Weasley.

Loving the Harry Potter series, Rupert Grint found out that there were auditions for the feature film, so he got the part although he had previously only acted in one school play.

Siblings are: James, age 11; Georgina, age 8; Samantha, age 6; and Charlotte, age 3

Says he would like to be invisible so he could sneak out of detention at school

Is arachnophobic

Personal quotes

[answering to "Is Emma Watson actually bossy like Hermione?"] I'd tell you, but she'd hurt me.

"To bad brooms can't really fly. Now if you miss the bus you can't just go in your room and fly to school with a nimbus two thousand!"
