Rupert Grint Filmography
Rupert Grint was only in school plays before he made it BIG in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Some of the plays he was in were, "Little Orphan Annie", "Noah's Ark" (as a fish) and quite a few others. He heard that the were holding auditions for Harry Potter, and he was already a big fan, his favourite character being Ron, from the newsround website. He got his big break in Harry Potter by sending in his resume and picture to the casting agents. When he heard that some other kids were sending in tapes, he decided to make one. In it he made a rap saying how much he wanted to be Ron Weasley and why he'd be perfect for the part. He also acted as his drama teacher, who's a girl, and he made up a script for Ron and acted it out. Obviously the casting agents were impressed and after many auditions and screen tests he found himself cast as Ron along with Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe. He is now working on Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets, the last Harry Potter movie he's contracted for. His one other movie is Thunderpants. It's about a guy who has amazing farting abilities, and Rupert helps him overcome his embarassment and he becomes an astronaut. It's coming out sometime this year. Rupert said that for Thunderpants he had to get a perm, and he was in there for 4 hours! He's glad he doesn't have it anymore because he thought he looked rather silly. Here he is in Thunderpants!
