So what does 23-year-old Rupert Grint do now that his Harry Potter role as Ron Weasley has ended? He drives around in a '73 ice-cream van and actually sell icecream to hungry kids. In a Live shoot along with his brother Grint presented his prized 1974 Mr Whippy Bedford van.
He revealed: "My first ambition was to become an ice-cream man, which is why I bought the Bedford van. Not long after I first got it, I pulled into a pub to do a U-turn and there were eight kids with their pocket money out, hoping to buy a 99 or whatever. But I had nothing to give them. I’ve learnt my lesson since then. I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short. I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that. I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, 'Ain’t you Ron Weasley?' And I’ll say, 'It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.' The van often comes in useful. I drove it up to the set on the last day of filming on Harry Potter. The cast and crew were having a barbecue and I supplied the lollies and ice creams."
Rupert, The Ice-cream man added: "I did go through an anxious period after Harry Potter ended. Of course I always knew it would come to an end. But it took some getting used to. Now I’m starting to enjoy the freedom. I can afford to choose my acting roles carefully and I’m able to enjoy my leisure time. I’m perfectly happy tootling around town in my ice-cream van, haring up the motorway in my Audi, or messing around on my hovercraft in the back garden."
Lovable Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint with costar twins Oliver and James Phelps at the premiere of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 at Kinepolis Cinema in Madrid, Spain on June 27, 2011. Let's hope he's not going to get into hardcore drugs and not expand his acting portfolio. He's too cute to waste.
