Gallery: Happy Birthday, Ron! 10 things you always wanted to know about Rupert Grint (BANG Showbiz)
He wanted to be an ice cream man?!
Rupert Grint turned 33 on August 24, 2021. The actor has been a household name since he played the red-headed wizard Ron Weasley in the 'Harry Potter' franchise aged 11. Since shooting the final 'Harry Potter' scene, Rupert’s done it all: from carrying the Olympic torch to starring in Ed Sheeran’s ‘Lego House’ music video. Here's everything you should know about the actor’s magical life...
He wanted to be an ice cream man
When he was young, the not-yet actor used to dream about being an ice cream man. With the money he made from the magical franchise he eventually fulfilled his childhood dream and bought himself a Bedford ice cream truck. In 2014, Grint told the Daily Mail: "My first ambition was to become an ice-cream man, which is why I bought the Bedford van.” He explained: "I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I'll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they're in need of ice creams, I'll pull over and dish them out for free. They'll say, 'Ain't you Ron Weasley?' And I'll say, 'It's strange, I get asked that a lot'."
He auditioned with a rap song
His audition to get the role that jump started his career, Grint sent a video of him performing a rap song he wrote about Ron Weasley. The strange video audition was then sent to a children's' news program called 'Newsround'. The actor has kept a hold of the audition tape, but he's made sure it will never circulate on the Internet.
The end of Harry Potter was anti-climactic
On the occasion of the final 'Harry Potter' movie premiere in 2010, the actor opened up about the last day of filming. He recalled filming the last scene with co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson. However, since the scenes are shot out of sequence, he felt it was an anti-climactic end to the series, as they filmed a scene of them coming through a fireplace. The actor told Nj.com: “It is kind of weird, actually. It'll take a while for me to come to terms with it. I mean it literally has been my childhood and suddenly it all came down to really just one random scene, with us jumping.”
His number one priority once filming wrapped...
Every actor who embarks on a long project which requires a lot of time has to keep the rest of their life on hold until after the shooting is wrapped up. Rupert and his co-stars dedicated ten years of their life to bring Harry Potter and its magical world to the big screen, as shooting the eight movies took 478 days to complete. The first thing the actor did as soon as his time as Ron Weasley was over was to get his tonsils removed. It might seem weird, however, the film producers wouldn’t allow him to undergo the procedure while filming as they were afraid it might alter his voice.
Like Ron, like Rupert
The actor admitted to being really close to the character he played for ten years. However, their biggest similarity was that they are both terrified of spiders. This meant that when the actor had to shoot scenes with spiders, the fear on his face was real. Grint recalled shooting scenes with the giant spider, Aragog, in the form of a puppet and described it as “pretty nasty”.
He doesn't care about money
Celebrity Net Worth estimates Grint's worth as around $50 million. However, the actor doesn’t even know the exact figure himself, as he’d rather focus on the fact that he’s “comfortable”. He told The Radio Times: "I actually don't know how much I have. I couldn't even really guess.” In the same interview, he disclosed that he’s happy to be comfortable, as this gives him freedom to choose what roles to accept.
Is that you Ed?
The actor is fully aware of the similarities between himself and music legend Ed Sheeran. The two redheads even came together to shoot the ‘Lego House’ music video in 2011. However, the running doppelganger joke did not end there, as the 'Bad Habits' singer dressed up as Ron Weasley for Halloween in 2016. During an appearance on ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’, the Grint admitted that around half of the fans who stop him on the street think he’s the singer. He told Corden: “It’s kind of 50/50 now. If someone stops me, it could go either way. I could be Ed, or I could be me.”
"Every time I wanted to move, I'm a very physical person, a very full-bodied actor, and to only be a chair and having to express ended up doing a number on me as we got farther and farther into the story.
Cardi B Reacts to the Recent Celebrity Hygiene Debate
The 28-year-old rapper doesn't seem to approve of the celebs who aren't washing regularly."Wassup with people saying they don’t shower? ???? It’s giving itchy," Cardi wrote.
"Stillness is one thing, but then being trapped is another thing, and it brought out a lot of feelings in me and reveals a lot about this character too."
Jake had to hear lines delivered by other cast members over Zoom and explained how the cast had to get their timing right to make sure they didn't talk over each other.
The 'Zodiac' star said: "Let's say you're on a huge Zoom in front of a lot of people you can't see. There are three cameras shooting you, and over the course of 11 days, the cameras that are shooting you start getting closer and closer and closer to your face.
"All the actors were on Zoom and the rhythm started to get set for us, and over a number of days we had to start our line even before the other one finished it, knowing that we were not going to hear the end of the line, but knowing that it would be recorded as if we were going to be interrupted... It was like you were in a partial gravity room trying to keep your feet on the ground."
