Rupert Michael 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 was going to be auditions for "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone", he decided to go for it.
Unlike the other children who were auditioning, Rupert came in with a rap that promoted the character he was auditioning for, Ronald Weasley, and was chosen soon afterwards. 'Sorcerer's Stone' was a big hit, as was the follow-up, 'Chamber of Secrets', and he has already filmed episode three, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), which was released on Friday, June 4, 2004. He's finished filming the fourth movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005).
