Actor Rupert Grint made his way to fame at just 11 years old. He famously played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movie series, arguably one of the biggest film franchises of the early 2000s. He played the character for over a decade, which solidified his career in Hollywood. However, Grint stepped has since away from the limelight. Here is what he’s up to now.

Gigs Between Potter Movies

In between Potter movies, Rupert Grint stayed busy in the film industry with smaller indie films. He starred in the dramedy Driving Lessons in 2006, and Cherrybomb in 2009. These movies did not reach the critical or commercial fame that Harry Potter did, however it kept his name in the spotlight during downtime between movies.

Becoming An Entrepreneur

After the Potter franchise came to completion, his co-stars went on to pursue even bigger acting careers. Grint, on the other hand, wanted to take a break from the stressful career. He said in an Entertainment Weekly interview in 2017, “When I started, [acting] was never something that I aspired to do… I felt like I’d missed out on a lot…” In the meantime, he ran an ice cream truck (a childhood dream) and owned a hotel.

Return To Screens And Voice Acting

Unfortunately, Grint’s stint as a hotelier was unsuccessful. But, he was soon back into acting as a guest star for several popular T.V. shows. He made guest appearances in American Dad, Urban Myths, Top Gear, and in the first episode of Tracey Ullman’s Show. Though he didn’t pursue any big projects, he was able to find his true passion for acting in the process.

Finding Passion For Acting Again

In 2013, Rupert Grint decided to take his acting career from the screens to the stage. He debuted in his theater career for the controversial comedy production Mojo. His performance earned Grint a What’s On Stage award for “Best Newcomer.” It was only a year before he was performing on Broadway in productions such as Terrence McNally’s It’s Only a Play. Grint said that theater helped him “fall in love with acting again.”

He’ll Always Be Ron Weasley At Heart

Though Grint had a steady and successful career after Harry Potter, he said he never really got over his love for the character of Ron Weasley. In a 2017 interview for Vulture, he said “…we kind of merged into the same person. I find it very hard to separate where I end and Ron begins.” He was even able to return to his character for two Universal Studios short films, The Hogwarts Express and Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts. It seems Rupert Grint and fans will always love Ron the most.
