Many of us who grew up with the entire Harry Potter franchise remember waiting in those incredibly long queues for the latest book to be released, eagerly sprinted to the cinema for the flicks and desperately trying to dodge spoilers about character plots.

We also know that once it gets rebooted, we're officially OLD. Daniel Radcliffe will always be our Harry, Emma Watson our Hermione, and Rupert Grint our ginger nut Ron. 

The actor who played the title role has now confirmed his thoughts that the hugely popular franchise will be rebooted, and we're totally in denial. Please don't do this to us.

Radcliffe spoke to IGN about playing the boy wizard in the formative film series, sharing his affirmation that "some other version" of the movies will be created in the future.

"I’m sure there will be some other version of it. I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’m gonna see in my lifetime – we’ve already got a few more in stage play Cursed Child."

The Fantastic Beasts franchise has kept the wizarding world alive (and is allegedly getting five films), as well as Pottermore and Harry Potter World. Radcliffe didn't rule out the possibility of a Harry Potter TV spin-off.

The actor recently revealed that the spin-off would be intriguing especially if it featured the Marauders- the name given to the group of friends featuring Harry's papa James Potter, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew and Sirius Black.

The Marauders gang aren't alive before the final book or movie, the movie would presumably be a prequel. "I feel like there are other stories from that world that you could absolutely turn into a TV series, 100 percent," Daniel told TV Guide.

"A series with the older generation Marauders, that could be very cool." Amen, Daniel, Amen.

“To a certain extent with things like the play and Fantastic Beasts, I think people are still interested in talking to me about it, but nothing’s been happening in that area,” he told E! News in May of last year.

“At the moment, I’m very much enjoying playing lots of different stuff.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter he wouldn’t mind reprising his role.

“I’m never going to close that door, but I think I’ll be happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it,” he said at the time.

Radcliffe's latest role sees him take on the part of a low-level angel in Miracle Workers who must convince God to let humans survive.

Rupert Grint has spoken about his net worth, and it's fair to say we're more than a bit jealous.

The former Ron Weasley was interviewed by The Radio Timesand his funds happened to come up in the conversation.

Naturally, everyone has something to say about it, seeing as his worth in 2016 was estimated to be a whopping €50 million, less than half of Daniel Radcliffe's estimated worth.

He told the publication that he tries not to pay much attention to his financial needs, but says he is "comfortable". Well for some isn't it?

Figures seem to go way over his head, based on these quotes;

"I actually don't know how much I have. I couldn't even really guess."

"It doesn't really motivate me too much. It makes you comfortable, that's the good thing about it, I think. I'm glad it's there but I'm not really that focused on it."

We'd be running around Brown Thomas spending an absolute fortune on nonsensical items which we totally don't need… but each to their own, I guess?

The actor has taken on roles since Harry Potter wrapped up in 2011, starring in Sick Note on Sky One, and the Snatch reboot.

He will also star in The BBC production of Agatha Christie's The ABC Murders alongside John Malkovich as Hercule Poirot.

Mr Weasley's down-to-earth spending habits appear to parallel with Harry and Hermione's.

Daniel Radcliffe told the Belfast Telegraph back in 2016 that he pretty much leaves his $100 million fortune alone.

"I'm very grateful for it, because having money means you don't have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom, career-wise," he said.

Grint also spoke about his struggle with the Harry Potter phenomenon's fame; "Sometimes you just want to go to B&Q." Do you, though? It's fairly grim.

The first thing he did in 2011 after hanging up his cloak and wand was get his tonsils removed;

"It was too much recovery time and there was the fear that it would change my voice."

Well Rupert, no one can say that you're not a normal lad. Too normal, in fact. 


There's not many times in my life when I'm properly speechless.

But now is one of them.

Two early '00s icons – Ron Weasley and Georgia from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging are a real-life couple.


But that's not all, oh no.

They have been an on/off thing for SEVEN YEARS.

That's since 2011.

How did we not notice?

How, with all of our hours of dedicated celeb stalking did we miss this glorious union?

I'm disappointed in us. 

The pair were first linked in 2011 and have been snapped together many times since – even in September at the Dinard Film Festival. 

And it seems that 26-year-old Georgia may be The One as Rupert has said that he is looking to settle down.

He revealed, ''Turning 30 felt strange. It just doesn't feel like I’m there yet and I don’t know what the future holds. I’m just going to go with the flow, keep playing interesting characters and see what happens. I’d like to settle down and have kids soon.''

We are still reeling…


It’s been too long since we waved goodbye to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. There’s a Hogwarts shaped hole in our hearts and re-watching the movies a dozen times just doesn’t seem to mend it.

So, we were only delighted when two of our fave Harry Potter stars reunited this week.

Tom Felton took to Instagram to share the photo fans have been longing for since the final Harry Potter movie aired seven years ago.

He posted a black and white snap of himself and his on-screen enemy Daniel Radcliffe.

The pair grinned for the reunion snap which was taken backstage at Daniel’s Broadway show The Lifespan of Fact.

Tom encouraged fans to go see Daniel’s new play: “Go see it. He’s fantastic as per @lifespanofafact.”

The actors have certinly grown since the days of Hogwarts,the golden snitch and Dementors.

They looked as happy as ever as they posed side by side;a far cry from the iconic characters they played since 2001.

Harry Potter fans couldn’t help but fangirl over the iconic duo’s reunion: “I’m so happy to see them together laughing.”

“Malfoy and Potter… Miss you guys,” another said.

“This is legendary."

One commented: “I’m shook,” – and same tbh.

The reunion has made us feel super nostalgic. We refuse to believe 17 years have gone by since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone first premiered.

If anyone needs us we’ll be binge-watching all seven movies this week, even if it will take us 20 hours.



Ed Sheeran and Rupert Grint probably get mistaken for one another all the time, especially after the insane Lego House doppelganger video.

Ed has been having a very exciting year thanks to the success of his new tune Shape Of You, and now Rupert is trying his hand at the lyrics. 


Sticking to his acting roots, rather than singing the tune, Rupert is acting them out through a dramatic reading.

The results are as funny as you would think, especially when it comes to reading the multiple  "Oh, I" refrains in the chorus. 

How Rupert held it together so well, we'll never know. 

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!



Snatch is going to be a good great show.

Obviously, when we found out that Rupert Grint and Ed Westwick were starring in a series together, we were pretty damn excited, but two seconds into the trailer when we saw Luke Pasqualino grace the screen, we totally lost our minds.

Possibly three of the hottest Englishmen on TV, yes?

But of course, we're interested in the show for more than the guys. While they may be a factor for why we'll tune into the premiere on March 16, the series looks to be pretty explosive.

Rupert plays the role of Charlie, who clashes with Sonny (played by Ed Westwick). Sonny is "just plain naughty" and portrays himself as the bad guy among the cast.

According to Crackle, Snatch centres around “a group of 20-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organised crime.

We can't wait for Snatch to hit our screens.


We LOVE when two of our favourite characters crossover for a TV show. And in this cae, it's Harry Potter's Rupert Grint and Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick.

Two of our beloved boys are in the middle of working on a new series called Crackle, and it's a far cry from what we're used to seeing them in.

Crackle is going to be a TV version of a movie called Snatch, which centres around a group of men who stumble across a truckload of stolen gold. The gang then end up in the world of organised crime.

Rupert will play the big role of Charlie Cavendish and Ed will play nightclub owner Sonny Castillo.

Ah lads, we're in for a good one here.



It looks like Harry Potter star Rupert Grint is in big trouble.

It's after coming to light the Rupert has been ordered to pay £1.3 MILLION in owed taxes… and he's blaming his dad for it.

The 27-year-old put his father and accountant in charge of his finances, and after some numerical trickery, Clay & Associates changed his accounting date so that 20 months of income would be taxed in the calendar year of 2009-2010.

So, all in all, eight months of Rupert's income hasn't been declared.

In the time that he didn't pay taxes, the rate went from 40 percent to 50 percent, so he's really having to pay for it now.

According to Hollywood Life, Rupert tried desperately to appeal the £1.3m ruling, claiming he had practically no awareness that it was going on.



If you were a teen in the noughties you’ll remember falling head-over-heels in love with Chad Michael Murray as he played a modern day Prince Charming in A Cinderella Story.

But can you imagine how different our lives would have been if Hilary Duff had spent that film falling in love with Ron Weasley?

As unbelievable as that might seem now, it turns out that very scenario was actually the original plan.

According to Teen Vogue, Harry Potter star Rupert Grint was originally offered the Austin Ames role in the 2004 flick but had to turn it down because of his Hogwarts-based commitments.

So every time you fantasised about Mr Murray reuniting you with your lost mobile phone in the most wonderfully cheesetastic way possible, you could have been dreaming about Harry Potter’s right hand man.

Minds officially blown.



We all know the deal. You're out until five in the morning but have to be somewhere else by 10am.

You pull yourself out of bed – no matter how awful you look – and leave the house in hope that no one will see you.

But if you're a major star, like Rupert Grint is, then you might have a problem going unnoticed.

The actor was seen leaving a London hotel last weekend and fans started to worry on social media about his well-being.

It's all good though, because when his rep said it was simply a stray hair that made Rupe look so dishevelled.

"The picture is misleading as there is a curl of hair under his eye and it's very poorly lit. He has been working very hard rehearsing for a new sky show and also training hard. I saw him on Sunday and he is looking great."

Hmmm… Sure.

We'd say he was absolutely hanging, but you know, the stray hair excuse works too.



Rupert Grint and Matthew Lewis are probably two of our all-time fave Harry Potter stars – and we kinda love them even more after hearing about the big prank Rupert has been playing on Matthew.

Matthew (or Neville Longbottom, as we like to still call him) revealed on Twitter last month that his former co-star had been putting food on his tab at his favourite restaurant for a number of months. Cheeky.

And when he was on This Morning today, he was asked to explain the whole incident:

"I saw Rupert for the first time in a few years and we were in Orlando and he told me he had been going to this restaurant, and I said: 'That's one of my favourite restaurants', and he's like, 'I know', and I said, 'How would you know that?' and he said, 'That's because I've been putting all my food on your tab for several months!' .. It could have gone on forever – I would never have known!"

Ah, how we wish Ron and Neville were still up to no good… Those were the days.


Well, just go and rip our hearts right out of our chests, why don't you.

If there's anyone that should be invested in a happy ending for Ron Weasley, it's Rupert Grint, who played him in all seven Harry Potter films.

But speaking at a Warner Bros event recently, Rupert revealed he had a very different idea of poor Ron's fate.

Despite defeating Death Eaters, Dementors and Voldemort himself to be together, Ron and Hermione's relationship just didn't last the distance. At least that's what Rupert thinks.

"I would expect Ron has probably divorced Hermione already. I don’t think that relationship would have done very well," he told the audience during a chat at Universal Studios in Orlando.

"[Ron’s] living on his own, in a little one-bedroom apartment. He hasn’t got a job," Rupert continued.

OUCH. Luckily for Harry Potter fans, Rupert's former co-star Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) interjected, saying, "Don’t say divorced. Say they’ve split up. They can reconcile."

Sadly Emma Watson herself wasn't there to offer her own version of events, but we hope it wouldn't have been quite so bleak as Rupert's one.
