In Crackle’s new comedy-thriller show Snatch, Rupert Grint plays Charlie Cavendish-Scott, a dissolute, but lovable, member of a financially-reduced family of British aristocrats. So, did the Harry Potter star base his portrayal on anyone in particular?
“Not really,” says Grint. “I’ve never really come across anyone like that. I was kind of finding it as I went.”
However, the actor did watch footage of one particular British aristocrat. “Prince Harry was someone I studied a bit, just to get that proud Englishness,” he says. “I watched a lot of videos [of him]. I didn’t really take a lot from it, to be honest. It turned into something else. But he was my first port of call.”
