Rupert Grint's Education Background
Rupert Grint was born on August 24, 1988 in Harlow, Essex. He is the oldest child of Joanne Grint and Nigel Grint and has four younger siblings: one brother and three sisters. Grint is probably best known for his portrayals of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies. EDUinReview would like to take a few moments to explore the education and acting backgrounds of this young movie star.
Grint attended a Roman Catholic primary school. He later attended Richard Hale School, a boy’s state comprehensive school. He graduated from Richard Hale in 2004, after taking his General Certificate of Secondary Education exams. He also attended classes at the Top Hat Stage School.
Grint’s first professional acting job was his role as Ron Weasley. Before becoming Harry Potter’s best friend, Grint had only appeared in school plays and local theater productions. Some of his best roles include a fish in the story of Noah’s Ark and Rumpelstiltskin.
There is a traditional way that most actors are cast for a part in a movie. Usually, their agent tells them about a role, they audition for the role, and then they land the job. Grint decided to be more creative in his quests for a role in the Harry Potter movies. Grint submitted a video of himself, dressed as his drama teacher and rapping about his desire to portray Ron Weasley. This video won him the role that he coveted so much.
In addition to co-staring in all of the Harry Potter movies, Grint has starred in Driving Lessons, Cherrybomb, and Wild Target.
Grint has been nominated and won several awards, including the Young Artist Award for the Best Performance in a Feature Film, Supporting Young Actor, and the Best On-Screen Team from the MTV Movie Awards.
Grint will co-star in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which will be released in the U.S. on November 19, 2010.
