Rupert Grint proud to stand out

Rupert Grint says he will “always be Ron” as long as he has red hair.

The actor shot to fame at the age of 11 after being cast as Harry Potter’s best friend Ron Weasley, in the popular movie series.

Now that all eight movies have been released the 23-year-old is looking to further his acting career.

However, he acknowledges that his character will be hard to escape.

He believes his bright locks have a lot to do with his identity.

“I don’t know. I think I’ll always be Ron, no matter what happens in the future,” he said in an interview with cinemablend. “As long as I’m ginger.”

After working on all of the blockbusting films, Rupert has built up a huge legion of fans.

The British star also blames his striking hair on the fact that he always gets spotted by Harry Potter enthusiasts.

But, Rupert admits he doesn’t mind at all.

“Yeah, I’m ginger, so I stand out,” he laughed. “It’s cool. I love meeting all those guys, seeing them all excited. It’s all great. It’s always been gradually becoming more and more part of my life as it’s gone on. It kind of becomes normal- getting recognised is kind of a routine, you kind of get used to it.”
