‘Harry Potter’ star Rupert Grint: Many confuse me for Ed Sheeran

Rupert Grint, famous for his role as Ron Weasley in the “Harry Potter” saga, has finally spoken out about his being a “longtime doppelgänger” of Ed Sheeran.

When asked about the hilarious mix-up on The Late Late Show With James Corden on Tuesday, Grint just laughed it off and politely admitted a lot of random people would praise him for his “music.”

“It’s kind of 50/50 now,” Grint told host James Corden. “Someone stops me, it could go either way. It could be Ed or it could be me.”

Both Sheeran, 24, and Grint, 28, have identical characteristics: they are British, red-haired, and physically fit. Because of the confusion, an Australia-based British singer-songwriter mistook him for the “Castle on the Hill” hitmaker. Grint added, “Leo Sayer. The singer Leo Sayer, he came up to me and said he loved my music. Of course thinking I was Ed, and I just played along.”

In 2011, Sheeran asked Grint to star in his music video for “Lego House,” where Grint acted as Sheeran’s look alike and deranged fan who gatecrashed one of his gigs.
