Rupert Grint, Driving Lessons

Probably the youngest actor yet to be on this show, Rupert Grint, at 18, is world-famous for playing Harry Potter's pal Ron Weasley in the hit film versions of J.K. Rowling's fantasy series. Now, growing up and learning to drive, Grint appropriately stars in Driving Lessons, an English comedy, alongside Oscar-nominated veteran Julie Walters, who plays his mum in the Potter movies. Grint, who had never acted before Chris Columbus cast him alongside Daniel Radcliffe as Harry and Emma Watson's Hermione Granger in the 2001 Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone, now graduates to his first (modestly shot) sex scene with Driving Lessons.
