London: Rupert Grint thinks he would have become an artist if he had not decided to pursue an acting career.

The ‘Harry Potter’ star is a big fan of painters and says he would have pursued a creative career path if his acting career hadn`t taken off, reports a wesbite.

"If it wasn`t for `Harry Potter` I`d probably be doing art, because I have always been into it. I`m regularly drawing, painting, sketching or doodling. It`s pretty much a hobby of mine," said Grint.

As well as enjoying art, Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the film series, also likes to play golf in his free time.
