A lot of 90s kids have grown up reading and watching Harry Potter. JK Rowling wrote these books that took us to the magical adventure in Hogwarts. Everyone fell in love with Daniel Radcliffe from the first film itself.
What made Harry Potter movies a huge success was the way these books made into movies. They were interesting and entertaining. But one cannot forget the perfect casting. Just like Daniel, actors like Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith and others were totally suitable for their roles. Hogwarts might be all magical, but the real world isn’t the same. Controversies happen here and celebs are often dragged into them.
We all love Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint. Today, they might be busy in their life. But there was a time when they made headlines in an alleged weed smoking scandal. As reported by Independent.co.uk in 2009, the Harry Potter star was accused of allegedly smoking cannabis joint at a party. On another occasion, Rupert Grint aka Ron Weasley was pictured smoking weed. However, their spokesperson had denied the news. Shockingly, one of their co-stars had accepted growing weed at his family home. Read on to know more deets.
In a statement, the Harry Potter actor’s spokesperson had said, “Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this. We are considering our position and will be taking all necessary action in relation to such allegations.”
Rupert’s rep stated, “This is categorically NOT Rupert Grint. It is an impersonator/lookalike.”
The actor who was guilty to growing weed plants is Jamie Waylett aka Crabbe. He played the role of one of Draco Malfoy’s friend in Harry Potter films. In 2009, police allegedly found 8 bags of cannabis in Jamie’s car. There were also plants worth of £2000 at least, in his family home.
