Rupert Grint always pleases fans with his hilarious portrayal of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies. Now, Grint is finally getting a little recognition from another source: the BBC. He came away from the 2011 BBC Teen Awards with the title of Best British Actor.
As usual, Rupert Grint was modest and down to earth. His first reaction to winning the award was, “I’m just the ginger one in the background, this shouldn’t be happening!” Really, though, it should have happened a long time ago. Grint has long been a favorite among Harry Potter fans, some of whom are much less enthusiastic about Grint’s costar, Daniel Radcliffe.
Now that Harry Potter is all wrapped up, Grint is on to new projects. He’ll be in an upcoming movie version of the animated TV series Postman Pat. Rumor also has it that Grint will be showing up in an Ed Sheeran music video. No matter what he pursues next, Rupert Grint’s career is not likely to end with the Harry Potter movies.
