My 12 year-old cousin, ran into Rupert Grint one day on a busy street in London.


My cousin was one of those boys who believed everything, no matter how many times someone told him it wasn’t real.

So, naturally, he yelled from across the street “Ron! Ron!” and Rupert walked over to him. Being the imaginative little boy that he was, the first thing he asked was “Ron! I didn’t get my Hogwarts letter. I turned 11 but I didn’t get it.”

Leaning down, Rupert quietly told him that he didn’t get a Hogwarts letter either and he had to keep it a secret. My cousin was stunned.

“So how did you get there?” He asked.

Rupert simply tapped a hand to his temple and said with a knowing smile.

“From here.”
