Rupert Grint once again proves his cute dad status. The actor, who graces the cover of GQ Hype, revealed he bought his 2-year-old daughter his first Hogwarts robe. But what house is she in, we hear you ask. “Gryffindor, of course,” Grint said. Thank goodness for that.
The Harry Potter star, who named his daughter Wednesday and joked he was now predicting a ‘Wednesday boom’ after the hit Netflix show, started watching clips of the magical films with her ‘but I don’t think she understands it’s me.” pretty old, can’t wait to watch them with her,” he said. Cute!
Grint, who took on the role of Ron Weasley when he was 11, also revealed he wouldn’t mind a TV adaptation of the franchise. “I would love to see Harry Potter adapted into a TV show. I think it would really work,” he says. “I’m sure the movies will be remade, anyway.” The 34-year-old previously told Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that he would “come back” to play Weasley during a January interview on ‘This Morning’, but is aware that one day the beloved character will be. probably recast. “I think there would be a feeling of passing the baton, of letting someone else play Ron,” he continues. “It’s weird because I’m protecting him, I could relate to him so much, and then I was chosen to bring him to life. It’s hard to give up. But that would be nice too.”
Although he suffered from tonsillitis for much of the filming of the film four through eighth (he had his tonsils removed as soon as the filming of the final film was finished), he admits that it was difficult to find his next career change. “I didn’t really prepare for it,” he says. “I didn’t even know if I would like to be an actor. Ron lured me into the whole industry and then he left.” Grint has carved out a successful post-Potter career after starring in the Apple TV+ series “Servant” and most recently in the thriller film “Knock at the Cabin.”
Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy, previously revealed the cast keep in touch through a Whatsapp group called ‘The Potterheads’. “We’re still trying to figure out what life is like on the other side of this cultural thing,” says Grint. As his career continues to flourish, he is aware of always putting his family first. “The dream is to do one to two [acting] projects a year and then spend the rest of my time doing dad stuff or crafts,” he reveals. I hope he has a matching Gryffindor robe until Wednesday to start his duties as a dad.
