What are Rupert Grint's Instagram posts about? Here are 3 facts we learned from his record-breaking new account

It may have taken Rupert Grint 10 years to join Instagram, but looks like he's killing it already

Rupert Grint claims that he may be late when it comes to joining Instagram, but at 4 million followers, we think he's off to a pretty stellar start. The former 'Harry Potter' star, who has stayed away from social media for years, finally decided to grace the Internet with his presence by creating an Instagram account.

Although he has only four posts so far, we're curious to see what more Grint has to show us. Between an adorable photo of his daughter and trailers, we're honestly okay with either, as long as he keeps sending content our way (we have our fingers crossed, maybe we'll get an HP cast photo). But until he does that, here's a definite breakdown of his Instagram profile.

He introduced the world to his adorable baby girl

Grint gets a perfect score for picking the right first post. After all, babies and Instagram — the two go together like a match made in heaven. Seeing that the first post dates back to November 2020, it was the first photo of his little girl the world had seen, since she was born on May 6 of that year. The caption he added was pretty sweet too.

It read: "Hey Instagram....only 10 years late, but here I am. Grint on the Gram! Here to introduce you all to Wednesday G. Grint. Stay safe, Rupert". While that may seem simple enough, it was enough to get 34,47,408+ people to like it, while 1,08,965 commented, welcoming Wednesday to the internet — and yes, there were a ton of "another Weasley?!" jokes, but we can't say we didn't see that one coming.

He got behind a good cause

Barely a week into the gram and Grint was doing what he does best, supporting those around him. If you've been a long time fan, it should come as no surprise to you that Grint is big on philanthropy and donating to charities — he's been doing so since 2002. Grint, along with other celebrities, were a part of what looks like an online campaign in support of Choose Love, an initiative that sells real items for refugees.

He's pretty much convinced us to watch 'Servant'

Like most of the 'Harry Potter' cast, Grint has gone on to take his own set of diverse roles. This time, we catch him in Apple TV+'s 'Servant', written by Tony Basgallop. The series also has M Night Shyamalan as its executive producer, so you know it's dark .

The series follows couple Dorothy and Sean Turner, as they cope with the death of their 13-week-old son. In order to process the loss, they get Jericho, a reborn doll, and also hire a young nanny, Leanne, to take care of it. Dorothy is convinced the doll is real — it's her coping mechanism. Sean, on the other hand, is still dealing with his grief while being suspicious of Leanne, whose behaviour grows increasingly unsettling over time.

Grint plays Julian Pearce, Dorothy's brother, who ends up getting tangled in strange events and occurrence that centre around baby Jericho. Grint has been sharing trailers of season 2 on his profile and we have to admit, the series looks like it's to get even more intense. With a stellar cast that includes stars like Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell and Nell Tiger Free, looks like binging through Season 2 of 'Servant' is definitely on the agenda!
