Rupert Grint Breaks Sir David Attenborough’s Instagram Record

Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has broken Sir David Attenborough’s record for the fastest time to reach a million Instagram followers.

The actor, who played Ron Weasley in all eight Harry Potter films, made his first post on November 10, joking that he was “only 10 years late.”

He reached the million mark in four hours and one minute.

That’s 43 minutes quicker than it took Sir David when he joined in September, according to Guinness World Records.

Dubbing himself “Grint on the Gram,” the 32-year-old actor’s first post was a photo of himself with his baby daughter.

Grint said he was “here to introduce you all to Wednesday,” the six-month-old girl his partner Georgia Groome gave birth to in May.

He joins a varied list of public figures who have at some point held the record for the fastest to gain a million followers. Jennifer Aniston took five hours 16 minutes; the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took five hours 45 minutes; and Pope Francis took 12 hours.
