On Being Recognized as Ron:
“It’s not too bad, actually,” said Grint in an interview with About.com from October 2006. “It’s only been in the last few years where I get recognized a little bit more from [the Harry Potter films]. The hair does sort of stand out. But they’re always really nice, so it’s not really a problem. It is something really weird and I’ve not really got used to it because it is quite strange. But, as I say, it’s not really a problem.”
