The Evolution of Rupert Grint (PHOTOS)

Like any child star in the spotlight for nearly a decade, Rupert Grint has changed before our very eyes. His on-screen persona Ron Weasley has grown from a small but loyal sidekick in The Sorcerer’s Stone to a stalwart defender of justice in Deathly Hallows: Part 1, which opens Friday.

Celebuzz is taking a nostalgic look at the Potter stars, compiling twenty photos of Grint spanning from 2001 — when the first Potter film came out — to just last week. Click through our gallery to study the evolution of Rupert Grint, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
