Harry Potter Star Rupert Grint Reveals He’s Already Bought His Daughter, 2, Hogwarts Robes, And They’re ‘Gryffindor, Obviously’
Rupert Grint already bought his daughter two Hogwarts robes on Wednesday.
The 34-year-old actor landed the role of young wizard Ron Weasley in the hit Harry Potter franchise at the age of just 11, and is now looking forward to casting his young son in the movies.
Rupert, who became a father for the first time when he and his partner Georgia Groome welcomed him on Wednesday in May 2020, said the robes are from the same house as his character Ron and his friends, Hermione Granger and Harry Potter. .

Confirming that Wednesday’s clothes are ‘Gryffindor, obviously,’ he said in an interview with the new GQ hype: ‘I’ve shown her clips of Potter but I don’t think she understands that it’s me.
‘When she’s old enough, I’m looking forward to seeing you with her.’
The Servant actor and fellow Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging star Georgia have mostly raised their little one out of the spotlight, but she’s already well aware of her father’s magical past.
Rupert previously admitted to Jimmy Fallon: ‘I’ve already started showing him the trailers.

‘She has a wand and a Pez dispenser with my head on it. We don’t feed her Pez, but she has [the dispenser].’
It comes after Rupert endorsed a Harry Potter TV series amid rumors that studio bosses are already considering adapting the franchise.
The actor, who played Ron in all eight films, said he thought it “worked really well.”
He said: ‘I would love to see Harry Potter adapted into a TV show. I think it would really work. I’m sure the movies will be redone anyway.
He told GQ Hype: “I’ve shown her clips of Potter, but I don’t think she understands that it’s me.” When she’s old enough, I really want to see them with her’
Rupert confirmed that he would be open to reprising his beloved role as Ron in the Harry Potter franchise.
The actor landed the role of the young wizard at the age of just 11 and said he would be prepared to return in some capacity as long as “the time was right and everyone came back.”
Speaking during an appearance on This Morning last week, Rupert admitted that he feels “protective” of Ron and would like to see what he’s up to now because the role was “his whole childhood”.
Phillip Schofield asked: ‘Would you bring Ron back? Wouldn’t you really object to seeing what he’s doing now?
Rupert replied: ‘I think if the timing was right and they all came back. He was a character that was important to me, we became the same person.
I also protect him. It was all my childhood.
Joking about his lack of acting credentials before landing the role in the film adaptation of JK Rowling’s much-loved novel, he added: “I was a fish in a school play before that!”
The actor starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), both 32, in Wizarding World for eight films.
Two decades after first hitting screens, the trio reunited in 2021 when they returned to Hogwarts for the franchise’s 20th anniversary at Warner Bros. Studios.
