THEY'VE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR YEARS

Grint and Groome, a fellow actress, were recently spotted on a grocery shopping run during the COVID-19 lockdown, both wearing very casual outfits.

The two have been keeping their love life away from the public eye for quite a while but it is believed that the stars have been dating since 2011, as suggested by an old picture posted by a fan on Twitter.

In the photo, Grint and Groome, who starred in the movie "Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging," can be seen posing together in a very intimate way. Although it is not perceptible, they might have been holding hands.

Grint has appeared in films such as "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" and "Moonwalkers"

In 2019, the couple sparked marriage rumors after being spotted wearing matching gold rings during an outing but a spokesman for the 31-year-old actor denied that they had tied knot.

PLANS FOR THE FUTURE

Although Grint hasn't said "I do," he seems ready to settle down. During a 2018 interview with The Guardian, the Harry Potter star claimed that he wanted to have children in the near future. He said:

"I’m just going to go with the flow, keep playing interesting characters, and see what happens. I’d like to settle down and have kids soon."

When asked if he would ever name one of his children after Ron Weasley, Grint playfully replied that he probably wouldn't because Grint is a "tough name to pair a one-syllable first name with."

HIS OTHER WORKS

After the Harry Potter movies, where he starred alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, Grint has appeared in films such as "Cross of Honour," "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" and "Moonwalkers."

The 31-year-old has also made a name for himself on television, landing roles in "Sick Note," "The ABC Murders," "Snatch" and more recently "Servant," a psychological horror series by Tony Basgallop.
