The boy who portrayed Harry Potter’s pal, Ron Weasley, is now a man, and he is due to appear in the upcoming films, The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman and Cbgb, in what will be his first major roles as an adult. The 23 year-old actor, who is undoubtedly eager to to lose the label ‘that ginger one what was in Harry Potter’, will star opposite some heavy hitters, who will test his acting prowess in new and unfamiliar surroundings.

Charlie Countryman focuses on Shia Labeouf’s titular everyman character, who falls for Gabi Banyai; a woman who is, unfortunately, already involved with a mob boss. The film is penned by Matt Drake (Project X), will be directed by debutant, Fredrik Bond, and boasts an impressive supporting cast, including Mads Mikkelsen (Coco Chanel And Igor Stravinsky), and the brilliant Melissa Leo (Treme).
