Rupert Grint

Rupert Grint, most famous for playing Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, dramatically reads Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ lyrics.


The banter between Rupert Grint and Ed Sheeran has been pretty great the last few weeks. Rupert came out and told the world he gets mistaken for Ed Sheeran often, especially since staring in Ed Sheeran’s ‘Lego House’ music video.

More recently he visited the Yahoo! studio and as a joke to his recent confession they got him to dramatically read the lyrics of ‘Shape of You’.

The story doesn’t end there, in fact it gets even funnier!

“I wanna say something. The truth is Ed isn’t real. My name is Rupert Grint. After Potter all I wanted to do was stretch myself. Create some real magic. So, I created a character,” Grint explained.

Rupert told an audience that Ed Sheeran was actually his alter ego.

“[My character would] have the voice of an angel and possibly wispy facial hair. So I bought a guitar and a bunch of flannel. I called him Ed. Ed Sheeran. Such a weird name, right? Not cool like Rupert Grint. I just didn’t expect everyone to think he was real. He became my greatest acting achievement. And the bane of my existence. From this day forward, Ed is no more.”

Rupert Grint is in fact joking and Ed Sheeran is in fact a real and completely different person but we love the humour the two have and the laughs they have had playing with the funny situation. Rupert really does the dramatic reading some justice even if he bursts into laughter a few times.
