Rupert Grint Press Archives

From Potter boys to men


The Harry Potter boys sure have grown up.

Rupert Grint and Tom Felton are showing the world and tons of tween fans that Daniel Radcliffe isn’t the only hottie from the boy wizard series.

Earlier last week, both Grint and Felton went online to showcase different but equally sizzling pictures of themselves.

Grint, 20, has made the cover of British hip-hop lifestyle magazine to promote his latest flick Cherrybomb.

On the cover, which you can see at, Grint looks out smoulderingly, a far cry from the cherubic red-haired Ron Weasley we’ve got to know from the Harry Potter movies.

Cherrybomb is about three teens who embark on a debauched weekend of drink, drugs, shop-lifting and stealing cars.

As for Felton, he recently posted a picture of himself on micro-blogging site Twitter after filming for the latest Harry Potter instalment.

The 21-year-old looks a bit of a fright, covered in fake red blood.

His accompanying message reads: ‘Before I finally go to sleep I thought I’d show you the photo from my last day of filming 13 hours! Right now I’m still trying to get the blood out of my hair!’

In Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final adaptation of the Harry Potter series, Felton plays evil Draco Malfoy, who turns into a fully fledged servant to main villain Lord Voldermort.

What we say:

Even as a little kid in the first Harry Potter movie, we always knew Felton had it in him.

Those intense blue eyes and that shock blond hair – he was a cutie in the making.

And his latest photo clearly shows he’s fitting in nicely with the skinny rock star look that will make the tween MTV set go wild.

But the big surprise is Grint, who has gone from sotong-faced carrot-haired sidekick to quirkily handsome young man.

Daniel who? – Seto Nu-wen

What people say:

‘Dude has some seriously toned arms!’
