Fans loved his portrayal of Weasley in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and he went on to appear in all eight films. Grint also began acting in other projects as well, including films like Cross of Honour, Wild Target, and Moonwalkers. These days, Grint is acting in a brand-new Apple TV+ series titled Servant and has received numerous accolades from both critics and fans.
