Rupert Grint is NOT retiring at 22. Phew

If you’ve slumped into a deep, Harry Potter-shaped depression now that the films are finally over, then at least Rupert Grint has given us a little glimmer of hope to cling on to, as he’s announced that just because his 10-year stint as ginger hottie Ron Weasley is over, he still has no plans to give up acting. Phew.

“I don’t think I’ll ever retire,” he announced. “I still have ambitions. I love being on set, and I want to do more movies. I’m very lucky to have that cushion, but I’d like to keep going. I like testing my capabilities.”
Rupe also opened up about money and, despite being worth more than £19million, says he isn’t planning on sticking with acting just because of the mega-bucks.

“I have quite a strange relationship with money, really,” he said. “At age 11, money isn’t really a big thing at all. I never thought about being rich. Then suddenly you have all this money, and it doesn’t seem like it’s real. I’ve never seen it. I don’t know where it is. It’s weird, kind of like a fantasy.”

But this is the man, after all, who has splashed out on an ice cream van, a quad bike, a go-kart, a hovercraft, an orange Land Rover, a selection of arcade games, and a Hummer-style golf cart.

Talking about the end of Harry Potter, Rupert admitted that although he was sad that it was all over, he was looking forward to moving on and trying something new.

So, what do you think he should do next?
