Early Life

Grint was born in Harlow, England, on August 24, 1988. His father, Nigel, sells racing souvenirs, and his mother, Jo, takes care of the house. Grint says that when he was younger, he wanted to be an ice cream man because it “always seemed like a really cool job.”

Grint was a well-behaved child who didn’t want to get into trouble as much as his famous screen character, Ron Weasley. He says, “I was never the kind of kid who was going to get into trouble.” “The worst thing I did was probably steal a hairbrush and a book called Billy Goats Gruff from a store. I think I went in to steal something, but I must have been in a hurry because I grabbed the first two things I saw. I knew I didn’t want to live a life of crime.”

Grint went to school in Hertfordshire at the Richard Hale Secondary School. When he was in school, his wild, bright red hair got a lot of attention. His great-grandfather called him “Copper Knob,” and his school friends called him “Ginge,” which is short for the word “ginger.”

‘Harry Potter’ Fame

Grint was an avid fan of the Harry Potter book series. When he heard about an open casting call for the film adaptation, he decided to audition for the role of Harry Potter’s redheaded best friend, Ronald Weasley. At the time, Grint had only gained acting experience in a handful of school plays, including an appearance as a fish in a play about Noah’s Ark.

Despite his lack of acting experience, Grint pulled out all the stops to land the role of Ron Weasley. “I applied once and got nothing back,” he recalls. “So I figured I’d nothing to lose by being a little inventive. My video had three parts. There was a rap about myself; I dressed up as a woman and did a little skit in the role of my drama teacher, then I read a dialogue from Ron Weasley.” His witty self-promotion paid off, and Grint became the envy of every redhead in the world when, at age 10, he landed a starring role in one of the most anticipated film adaptations of the story.

Grint speaks in awe about his first experience on the set of Harry Potter. “When I first walked into the Great Hall, it was absolutely incredible,” he recalls. “All those effects with the candles floating in the air, all lit and everything, food on the table, all the torches were lit – it was just incredible, it was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life.” Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone hit theatres in 2001 and broke records for ticket sales in the U.S. in a single day.

The remarkable success of the first Harry Potter film made Grint – along with his co-stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) – an instant international celebrity. Grint says he was initially uncomfortable with his newfound fame. He recalls, “The strangest moment was when I went back to school to finish my exams after filming the first movie. All the kids were cheering and clapping when I walked in.”

Grint also played Ron Weasley in the franchise’s numerous sequels: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part I (2010) and Part II (2011).
