In its film adaptation, the character was played by the English actor, Rupert Grint, whose Instagram presence has broken all records! On November 10, Grint broke naturalist Sir David Attenborough’s record of gaining the highest number of followers in the shortest span of time. Before Attenborough, this record belonged to American actor, Jennifer Aniston.

Grint’s first post on Instagram was an image of himself holding his infant daughter, Wednesday G. Grint who was born in May 2020. This single image won him over millions of followers in barely four hours and one minute. Grint attributes this record to his daughter’s presence in the selfie.
