Here's four fun facts you never knew about Harry's BFF Ron Weasley himself, Rupert Grint!
Four Things You Didn't Know About Rupert Grint
1. He dreaded kissing Emma Watson.
"It's going to be very weird. I'm not really looking forward to it, if I'm honest," Rupert told J-14 before filming their kiss scene in Deathly Hallows. "I knew it was going to happen, since it was pretty largely in the book. But it's going to be strange because I've known Emma for so long and she's like a sister."
2. He owns an ice cream van.
On the last day of filming Deathly Hallows, Rupert brought it to set and he and Emma Watson served ice cream to the entire cast! "I'm not really sure why I bought it," he says. "It was always a childhood dream. All I wanted to do was be an ice cream man. I don't drive it very much anymore because when I take it out people form queues and want ice cream."
3. He rapped his way to playing Ron Weasley.
Rupert made a homemade audition video in which he rapped to convince producers he was destined to play Ron. "'Hello there, my name's Rupert Grint, I hope you like this and don't think I stink,'" he recalls. "That was the first line and all I can remember. I was 10!"
4. He loves quirky gifts.
After filming on Harry Potter wrapped, "I bought Dan [Radcliffe] and Emma [Watson] trumpets," Rupert says. "I don't know why. I don't play the trumpet. I got a kit and engraved them. Dan got me a really nice still from one of the films and signed it. It was a scene where Dan was climbing on my head and his foot was crushing my head."
