August 24, 2009, 9:52 PM–While we celebrate Rupert Grint’s 21st birthday we thought we would share with you some great reports coming out about this special occasion. In a new report from MTV, Rupert is deemed as one of Hollywood’s hottest young stars! Read below.
Even if the “Harry Potter” films hinge on Daniel Radcliffe’s performance, the success of the franchise is strongly reliant on the work of Rupert Grint’s portrayal of Ron Weasley, Harry’s best friend and fellow wizard-in-training. Like Daniel and their co-star Emma Watson, Rupert has practically grown up on screen, starting off as a boy in “The Sorcerer’s Stone” before becoming a full-fledged leading man in “The Half Blood Prince.”–HollywoodCrushMtv
