Happy birthday, Rupert Grint! One of our favorite redheads is turning 27 today, August 24! We’re such a fan of Rupert’s work, and hope he has the happiest day! Chocolate frog, anyone?
Rupert Grint is 27 today, August 24! It seems like just yesterday he was an adorable, messy-haired little boy, and now, here he is: a handsome, still messy-haired man! We feel like we grew up alongside Rupert from watching his movies, and it’s hitting us hard that he’s 27 already! So which famous former co-star do you think has showered him with the most birthday love so far?
Our money’s on Emma Watson! You don’t just spend nearly 10 years building a romance with someone onscreen during your most hormonal years and then stop caring about each other. And Daniel Radcliffe! After you go through a full-on war between good and evil, and see a bunch of of your friends and family die by the hands of Voldemort, you’re friends forever! Sorry…we just really like Harry Potter.
Don’t blame us; it’s been exactly 15 years since Rupert, along with Emma and Daniel, were presented as the three adorable — and then unknown — kids who would make our favorite books come to life onscreen. We didn’t know at the time that it would last for eight films!
In the next year, Rupert has a really exciting project lined up: he’ll be in Moonwalkers, along with Irish cutie Robert Sheehan. The film tells the “true” story behind the moon landing — a CIA agent and a rock manager team up to help Stanley Kubrick fake it all. Can we get tickets now, please?
Rupert has been picking unique and interesting projects since his Harry Potter days ended. We’re more and more impressed by what he chooses and creates with each role! The next year is going to bring just more success and happiness — and maybe more Ed Sheeran videos?
