Rupert Grint was eleven years old when he was cast as Ron Weasley in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (2001). Born in Essex, England, Grint had experience acting in school plays and at the local theater, but no prior on screen appearances. Based on the most popular book series of all time, the first Harry Potter film was, of course, a smash, and the series went on to encompass eight films, culminating in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2" (2011). Grint was active between films, appearing in movies like "Thunderpants" (2002), "Driving Lessons" (2006), "Cherrybomb" (2009), and "Wild Target" (2010), none, of course, reached the heights of his most high profile role. After the series ended, Grint played supporting roles in a few films and guest spots on TV series before landing starring roles in two series that debuted in 2017. In the British series "Sick Note" (Sky One, 2017-), Grint starred as a young man whose friend and acquaintances all treat him with more kindness and respect when he's diagnosed with cancer. When the young man realizes he has been misdiagnosed, he continues the charade to comic effect. The second series starring Grint was "Snatch" (Sony Crackle, 2017-). Based on the film of the same name, it followed a group of young hoods who come upon a treasure, which entangles them in the world of organized crime. Grint also executive produced the adaptation. In 2018, it was announced that Grint would appear in the series adaptation of Agatha Christie's The A.B.C. Murders starring John Malkovich as the famous detective Hercule Poirot.
