Now filming has started on the Prisoner of Azkaban, Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, will be dead busy.

But that didn't stop him coming on our message boards for a chat on 21 February!

Rupert calls himself Permlessboy whenever he comes on the boards.

He chatted to loads of people, mostly, for some reason, about ham.

We haven't included all the messages. That's because many of them are just Rupert telling people who don't believe him he really is Rupert!

Here's what he wrote and what people said to him:


Permlessboy
It's great to be back, I've had a great week off, except for my brother breaking his arm and me falling out of a canoe and almost drowning (lucky the river was only a foot deep!!!). My cat's pregnant and really acting weird, maybe because we've just got a puppy called Sergeant Montgomery. My Unicycling is not improving and I can still only manage 4!!! But I've now taken up yoyoing, but I've just hit my brothers bad arm while attempting a new trick!!!! So I'm on here now because I'm hiding from him in case he hits me on the head with his cast!!!!!!! I'm going now to have some ham. Rupert

Permlessboy
My brother fell down some steps running out of school, and he's really in a mood because he can't ride his bike, play rugby or skate, so he's had the worst half term ever!!!!! My puppy's a basset hound, my yoyo is a turbo bumble bee and I've just learnt how to split the atom and hurt broken arms ha ha!!!!!! Luv Rupert
