Rupert Grint worlds away from Harry Potter filming Snatch

He is best known to fans as the iconic Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series, playing the role for ten years.

But Rupert Grint was worlds away from the lovable young wizard on Saturday, as he filmed scenes for his heist drama Snatch.

The 29-year-old was seen puffing on a cigarette and sipping a coffee as he took a break on set for the show, donning a suave grey linen suit and an ensemble-making white Panama hat for filming in Malaga, Spain.

Rupert was every inch in character as the suave sophisticated rich man, rocking a white fedora and brown shoes with his smart ensemble.

The former Harry Potter star donned a matching grey pinstripe suit and pink shirt with the look, with sunglasses protecting his eyes from the blazing sun.

In the scene, Rupert’s character looked to be meeting someone on the balcony for a private discussion, with the stunning Spanish countryside in full view. 

Rupert was filming scenes for the second series of Crackle series Snatch, which is based on the 2000 Guy Ritchie film of the same name, in which the actor stars and acts as an executive producer.

Rupert plays Charlie Cavendish-Scott, the right hand man of lead character Albert, played by Our Girl star Luke Pasqualino, who becomes embroiled in the world of organised crime after finding a truck of stolen gold buillion.

He decides to turn his back on the silver spoon lifestyle provided by his rich family, leading him and a group of others to end up on the run after their crime exploits go wrong.

In the second series, the show’s stars are on the run, and decide a holiday to Spain is just what is needed, according to Metro.

Unfortunately, things do not go according to plan as it quickly becomes a face-off with a local kingpin and another thrill-a-minute fight to save their fortune, and ultimately their lives.

Filming for Snatch series 2 was forced to be delayed late last year, after shooting location Puerto Rico was devastated by two hurricanes.

Speaking at the UK premiere of the first series in September during a Q&A, Luke said: ‘We were set to go out there, but then two hurricanes in a week left Puerto Rico devastated, so we’ve had to delay it a while. We’re leaving Manchester this time, so we’re in the process of finding out where we’re going.’

Luckily filming has finally begun, with several stars of the series posting their first snaps from the set on Instagram on Friday.
