Rupert Grint - Rupert Grint 'plays along' with Sheeran confusion

Subscribe to Rupert Grint alerts

Rupert Grint ''plays along'' when he is mistaken for Ed Sheeran.

The 'Harry Potter' actor insists he doesn't mind when fans think he is the flame-haired singer and is happy to accept compliments on his chart success.

He told Match of the Day magazine: ''People think I'm Ed Sheeran. They compliment me on my music career and I just play along with it! It's never too bad, you get the odd person staring at you but it's pretty manageable.''

The 25-year-old actor famously owns an ice cream van but no longer drives it because real vendors get ''territorial'' when he arrives in their areas.

He admitted: '''Before I started Harry Potter, my main career ambition was to be an ice-cream man. In fact I bought an ice-cream van as my first car!

''I don't drive it much because real ice-cream men get pretty territorial, and even if I just take it to Tesco it's amazing how many people start queuing up to buy ice-creams.''

Rupert has previously admitted even other celebrities have mistaken him for Ed.

He said: ''[Do we get mixed up?] Yes of course, a lot. People get confused all the time. One time I was at this Formula One race and Leo Sayer was there. There was definitely a kind of confusion because he came up to me and said how much he liked my music.''
