Former Harry Potter star Rupert Grint might not get as much attention as some of the other Harry Potter alum these days, but he has still been working hard in the acting industry and he still has some very enjoyable stories to tell. Rupert has been talking about one of these stories in particular, which saw the actor catching fire to himself, but not even realising before John Hurt pointed it out to him.
Grint was a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden, when he revealed, "Not a lot phases me. I actually caught fire once, and I didn't even know it was happening. I was at the Edinburgh Festival, and it was a screening for a film and I actually felt quite hot ... John Hurt - the late, great John Hurt - he came up to me and said, 'Um, do you know you're on fire my boy?' I think I was standing very close to a candle, and I bumped into it. I had no idea."
With the Harry Potter movie franchise being one of the biggest of all time, and the fact that Rupert Grint has hardly changed in appearance since those movies, it is quite surprising to think that people still get him mixed up with another British star. Rupert has revealed how he still gets many people coming up to him and confusing him for music superstar Ed Sheeran.
Grint added, "It's kinda 50/50 now. It's like if someone stops me, it could go either way. I could be Ed or I could be me. Leo Sayer, he came up to me and he said he loved my music. Of course, thinking I was Ed. I just, yeah, I play along."
When it comes to his acting career, we are very excited to see what Rupert Grint and co. can do with the new Snatch television series, which will premiere on Crackle on March 16.
