Rupert Grint

  1. Chad Michael Murray, A Cinderella Story, 2004.   The redheaded boy who was Ron Weasley  won the role of a modern day Prince Charming opposite  Hilary Duff’s Cinders  except his  day job  interferred. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
  2. Taron Egerton, Eddie The Eagle, 2015.   After Steve Coogan, Martin Freeman, James McAvoy, Kris Marshall and Robin Williams,  Harry Potter’s teen wizarding pal Ron Weasley was selected as  plasterer Eddie Edwards, more ski-ing chump than champ, an abject  failure  (therefore, a British hero!)  at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.  “He’s not a loser,” said  Eddie’s wife, Sam.  “Would a loser compete in the Winter Olympics even though he had no sponsorship? Could a loser come from a country where there are no ski jumps and yet compete at the highest level?”
