Back in 2002 when the picture was taken Rupert Grint (right) was 13 years old and he, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe were awaiting the release of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
I met up with him again the other day in Los Angeles to talk about his starring role in the new TV series Snatch, loosely based on the Guy Ritchie film.
Now 28, like the Ron Weasley character he played for 12 years he is a laid back, happy-go-lucky guy who laughs a lot and has no regrets about spending his childhood on a film set although he admits he was glad when the Potter films finished.
"I think we ended it at completely the right time," he says. "I was ready to move on and live a bit and just kind of catch up on stuff I missed out on.
"I did a lot of things for fun and I could relax a little bit. Being in that kind of bubble for such a long time was a little bitsuffocating at times and we worked so hard. It was about 12 years non-stop so it was nice to just have a break and do things that I couldn't do before.
"I actually cut my hair because I never had any control of my hair during those years. It always what was right for Ron so yeah, it was really fun to just live a little bit."
