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!
