It took him quite a long time to actually be persuaded, but Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has finally created his first and official social media account! The English actor, best known for his work as Ron Weasley in the successful Harry Potter film franchise has joined Instagram and on his first day alone, he was able to garner over 2.3 million followers. Now, that's how you make an impact on your first social media day!
Grint didn't waste any time and immediately got a little cozy on his new platform. He also made sure that his first post would break the internet into two. For his debut Instagram entry, the 32-year-old actor introduced the world to his first daughter with fellow actress Georgia Groome. The two have been in a relationship since 2011 and welcomed their firstborn Wednesday, May of this year.
Rupert captioned: "Hey Instagram....only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert" The post, as of writing has gotten over 2 million reactions. Check it out here:
Of course, Rupert joining Instagram is a major win especially for his fans who've been wanting to keep up with what he's been doing all these years. Grint has been known by many all these years as a very private person and it's nice that he's finally embracing the fun and wacky world of social media. Let's just hope he doesn't regret his decision in the long run.
Rupert Grint currently appears in the Apple TV+ series Servant.
