'Harry Potter': Watch Rupert Grint age before your very eyes!

Harry-Potter-Morph_RonFrom about age 12, when he made Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, through The Order of the Phoenix, Rupert Grint’s two (perhaps only) adjectives for everything were “wicked” and “cool.” But his near-silence has earned him a certain mystique — after he got his driver’s license, he bought an ice cream truck to drive around instead of, say, a Ferrari — and he’s built a fanbase who seem to get his offbeat sensibilities. Part of the genuine thrill of the Potter films have been watching its three stars grow up before us on the big screen, in real time. But it’s easy to forget just how young they really were when they first started out. So we used some fancy computer age wizardry to age Mr. Grint from when he was a wee 11 years old to his current age of 21 in the final film(s) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Hold on to your caps — this is kinda wild:

    Yes! 3rd Brandenburg! GREAT piece. Oh, and Rupert is adorable, even with the girly hair from Goblet of Fire.

  • Tammy

    Am I the only one who absolutely adores Ron? <3

    • Stacie

      Oh Won-Won, I will love you forever.

    • Dove

    • BrandonK

      Ron, yes. Rupert, eh…

    • Liz

      No! I love Ron, I was always mad at the way they portray him as kind of a joke in the movies. He’s such an unsung champion in the series. Love Ron!

  • lettergirl

    one of my FAVORITE HP lines is when he goes, ‘i’m ron. ron weasley!’ from SS. i don’t know why, but it just makes me smile. :)

    • Stacie

      I loved, “Don’t talk to me. I’m trying to fix that in my mind forever. Draco Malfoy the amazing, bouncing ferret.”

      • dizzy

        His hair really was something in Goblet of Fire, lol. He’s adorable either way.

      • paula

        ditto, that line in GOF is so funny

  • jule

    sexier than daniel radcliffe.

  • glawk

    did the cast know it would take up most of their lives? 11-21 thats so much! im sure their happy and proud but if they knew it would 10 years back then, would they have still taken on the roles? im sure this has been asked before, do any harry potter buffs know the answer?

    • you can bank on it

      pretty sure the millions in their bank accounts help a lot!!

  • Lisa Simpson

    I love him, but that one shot of him towards the end was a bit too Anton Chigurh. Much scarier than Draco Malfoy could ever hope to be.

  • Yanni

    OMG! Who would’ve guessed that “Ron” would turn into a hottie!? Good for him!

    • Debbie

      I know!!! And you should see him in some recent photoshoots, HOT!!!

  • Margrete

  • George W. Bush

    Wow, he got uglier and uglier.

    • ann

      and you’re so hot xDDDDDD

  • Mary

    He’s always been cute. Even in Goblet of Fire when he was sporting the rather unfortunate hair.

  • Carla

    Rupert Grint is so sexy, I think he is the one that change the most out of everyone else and he is FINE!!! Definetly love me some ginger.

  • Crystal

    Ron Weasley is my favorite character by far in the books. In the films, however, they’ve done a butcher job on his characterization. I like Rupert in the role but the way they’ve written him has rarely been true to the books. IMHO.

  • harry

    I would love to see Rupert Grint play a villan for his next role.

  • harry potter
