Grint to change his daily grind

After almost a decade playing the wholesome Ron in Harry Potter Rupert Grint may feel entitled to a change of scene.

Grint, who turns 21 today, tells me that for his next role he would like to play a villain.

“I have always played the good guys so far,” he says. “I’d love to play a baddy and maybe beat some people up – do something different. I’m definitely a character actor.”

Unlike Daniel Radcliffe, who memorably disrobed for his performance in Equus, it may be some time before Grint takes to the stage. He laments: “I would love to do some theatre but I’ve really only done school plays.”
