Kids Wish Network would like to send a “Happy Birthday” wish out to British actor, Rupert Grint. This adored Harry Potter star is celebrating his 24th birthday today and we’re hoping it’s fantastic!

In 2004 we granted a wish for Alexandra, a Harry Potter fan suffering from spina bifida and hydrocephalus. For her wish, Alexandra was given the opportunity to attend the premiere of Harry Potter’s third major motion picture, The Prisoner of Azkaban, in New York City, and got meet members of the cast!

Two years later, at the U.S. premiere of the fifth film of the Harry Potter series The Order of the Phoenix, the cast granted a special wish for a very bright and bubbly Texan named Diana. After the premiere, she even got to party with Rupert Grint, himself!

Rupert Alexander Grint (born 24 August 1988) is an English actor, who rose to prominence playing Ron Weasley, one of the three main characters in the Harry Potter film series. Grint was cast as Ron at the age of 11, having previously acted only in school plays and at his local theatre group. From 2001 through 2011, he starred in eight Harry Potter movies alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson.

Beginning in 2002, Grint began to work outside of the Harry Potter franchise, taking on a co-leading role in Thunderpants. He has had starring roles in Driving Lessons, a dramedy released in 2006, and Cherrybomb, a small budgeted drama released in 2010. Grint co-starred with Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt in Wild Target, a comedy. His first project following the end of the Harry Potter series will be Comrade, a 2012 anti-war release in which he stars as the main role.

All quotes about Rupert Grint


“I have to say, after experiencing so many spoiled young Hollywood stars, it was a pleasure meeting someone so humble, polite, and down-to-Earth.”

-Will Keck

(USA Today, July 2007)

HP Casting Department:

“There is a warmth about Rupert, which is absolutely part of the character of Ron. Ron is kind and thoughtful and slightly insecure, and has a generousness of spirit that I also see in Rupert. There are no short cuts with children. You have to see as many as possible until you find the one who has the spark you’re looking for. I’ll go anywhere – primary schools and youth groups, as well as agents and drama schools. The great thing is that every child knows the characters inside out…”

Karen Lindsay-Stewart

Casting Director, Harry Potter

(Other films: Secret Garden, Madeline)

David Heyman:

“Success has not gone to his head. He is a natural comedian, and his future is what he makes of it. There will always be a need for actors of his great instinct and talent.”

Actor Rupert Grint is planning to follow his Harry Potter co-star Emma Watson's lead by completely changing his image to mark the end of the wizard franchise.

The stars wrapped filming on the final installment of the movie series last year and Watson celebrated by chopping off her locks to sport a long-desired pixie crop.

And Grint is also planning a drastic transformation.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I'm going to shave off my hair or at least dye it. People always recognise me because of this hair.

"I am a proud ginger and surprisingly don't get much ginger abuse. But I definitely need a change."

The final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, is set to hit cinemas in July.

Rupert Grint: Kissing Emma Watson Was Just 'Okay'


Rupert Grint does not count himself among the massive number of males who probably want to smooch Emma Watson.

"It was actually okay," Grint, 22, said of his onscreen kiss with Watson in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which opened in theaters Friday. "It was just the anticipation. Neither of us were looking forward to it."

Grint does, however, acknowledge that may seem a bit unbelievable to most fans.

"It sounds crazy, Emma's amazing," he says. "I've seen her grow up and known her since she was nine. It just doesn't feel right."

What does feel right is leaving the Potter franchise behind.

"In terms of filming, yes, it really does feel over now," he said, adding, "There's a real sense of freedom now. It's a good time to finish, I think. As much as I'm going to miss it I'm ready to move on and do different things."

Rupert's butterfly
Harry Potter star, Rupert Grint, has used his creative talents to support Keech Hospice Care’s adult and children’s hospices – a charity located close to his Hertfordshire home.

The wizard star is known to enjoy drawing and painting in his spare time and has produced an elaborate, coloured butterfly sketch – a theme which was chosen to represent the beauty of all lives, however short they may be.

Grint’s artwork will join the creations of many other celebrities including Coldplay, Theo Walcott and Fearne Cotton.

The special group of paintings, named ‘The Chrysalis Collection’, will be auctioned off on the eBay in March and Rupert is expected to be a popular choice.

“We are delighted Rupert has chosen to support his local hospice charity, especially because many of the children we care for are big fans of the Harry Potter star," Keech fundraiser Laura Devine said.

“Rupert’s masterpiece features many faces inside the butterfly’s wings, each with their own quirky expression and unique character – a true Harry Potter creation that will have the fans thrilled!”
