As Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film franchise he was the bespectacled wizard’s closest friend, confidante and trusted ally.

But Rupert Grint was a long way from Hogwarts on Tuesday evening when he left a London hotel looking wide-eyed and unkempt.

The actor appeared worse for wear and somewhat disheveled as he left London’s Thistle Hotel with a male pal, pausing only to light a cigarette as he made his way down the street.

Looking pale and drawn, Grint disappeared into the night with the hood of his baggy top pulled over his tousled ginger locks – the dark bags under his eyes suggesting he was in need of a good night’s sleep.

The actor, who became a household name following his casting as Weasley in the hit franchise, has fallen under the radar of late.

While former co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have enjoyed huge success in a string of hit Broadway shows and films, Grint’s progression has been less assured.

His latest role will see him play the voice of Josh in Postman Pat: The Movie, scheduled for release in May.

Grint’s wide-eyed appearance in London this week mirrors a similar appearance from Radcliffe in New York last August.

At the time the 24-year-old actor sparked concern with his dishevelled look as he made his way out of the theatre and to his waiting car - signing autographs and posing for photographs with fans en route.
