tMF 50 Hottest Young Actors

Top 50 status: First time on the top 50 list.

Biggest roles so far: as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series, as Ben Marshall in Driving Lessons and as Malachy in Cherry bomb. Why he made the top 50:

It’s been great to watch the three lead stars of Harry Potter mature before our eyes. While Rupert’s role is supporting lead to Dan Radcliffe, the young actor is seriously considering other roles to further his acting career. Says Rupert:

“It was just so different to the Harry Potter films. It’s much lower budget, it’s a much smaller crew and there’s no blue-screen, special effects or creatures or anything like that! That was definitely one of the reasons I wanted to do it and it was just nice to be someone who’s sort-of a bit different. Being Ron – as much as I love it – for many years does get a bit repetitive. It was nice just to be someone else.”

Grint is currently working on two different films- a dramatic-thriller, with a twist and a coming of age story entitled Cherry bomb, and an action-drama called Wild Target, featuring an impressive ensemble cast lead by Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt.
