After 10 years on the big screen playing the quirky wizard — like his co-stars, he also got his big break at age 11 — Grint continued to revisit his famous role. He appeared in two shorts, “The Hogwarts Express” and “Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts,” as Ron Weasley. However, he has also experimented with some odd jobs. His first car, which he got while filming the last Harry Potter movie, was an ice cream truck. This forced him to stock up on ice cream and candy to sell to the kids in his neighborhood and on set for the cast and crew. He then opened a boutique hotel called Rigsby’s Guest House in Hertford, England, which he later closed. When Grint decided to get back to acting, he worked in theater, TV and film. He took the Broadway stage in It’s Only a Play, the big screen in Mojo and the small screen as Charlie Cavendish, a hustler on Snatch, and as Daniel Glass, a misdiagnosed man who faces an existential dilemma, in Sick Note.
