Rupert Grint bio:
The acting bug bit Rupert Grint when he was in secondary school and he started to attend the Top Hat Stage School, where he took the stage in various roles. As a major fan of the Harry Potter books, Rupert Grint was thrilled at the chance to audition and attempted to stand out with a tape of himself rapping for the part. After more auditions, the red-headed Rupert Grint eventually won the role of Harry Potter’s loyal friend Ron.
