Rupert Grint thrills kids at theme park

The Harry Potter star brings a bit of magic to heartbroken family.

Rupert Grint, famed for his role as Ron Weasley in the hugely popular Harry Potter film franchise, surprised the tragedy-stricken Carter family with some true festive spirit for a TV show.

The Carters were broken-hearted when mother Denise tragically passed away after giving birth to her and husband Steve's fourth child in 2009, leaving Steve to raise his three sons and daughter by himself.

As part of Noel Edmonds' TV show Noel’s Christmas Presents, the family were treated to a host of gifts, including a trip to Florida, where Grint gave them a personal tour of the Harry Potter theme park.

Father Steve added: "The best thing was the look on the kids' faces. There are great memories and I know Denise was watching over us on the trip."
