Is Ron a Hufflepuff

Assigned to the wrong house: Rupert Grint is actually a Hufflepuff

When choosing a house for Ron Weasley, the Sorting Hat in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone didn't have to think twice: Gryffindor. With actor Rupert Grint it seems to be different. He's supposed to be a Hufflepuff at heart.

Harry Potter fans know how nerve-wracking house choices can be for first-year Hogwarts students. Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) can tell a lot about it. Speaking of songs: When choosing a house, the talking hat also demonstrated its talent for singing when it presented the individual houses and their advantages:

Maybe you're in Gryffindor, your old hat says
for bravery and courage rule there, as we know.
In Hufflepuff, however, one is just and faithful,
you help others wherever you can and are not afraid of work.
Are you quick in thinking, also learned and wise,
then you make your way to Ravenclaw, I bet, on the trip.
In Slytherin one still knows how to combine cunning and deceit,
but you will still find real friends here.

The three friends ended up in Gryffindor, as we know. They demonstrated bravery and courage several times in the following years. Things seem different with Ron actor Rupert Grint. Pottermore claims to have found out that he really belonged after Hufflepuff. In an interview, the former child actor remembers his youth on the set, talks about his favorite film scene and ponders the continued existence of the characters in the Harry Potter universe.


Although he feels a part of Gryffindor himself, Rupert Grint takes his classification calmly:

I feel pretty good That wasn't what I expected.

After all, who would prefer the boastful Gryffindor, the insidious Slytherine or the arrogant Ravenclaw to the laid-back Hufflepuff?

Which house would you be assigned to at Hogwarts? And which one would you prefer to be in?
