The 'Harry Potter' actor wrote a personal piece for The Times over the weekend where he touched on the author's controversial remarks.

Rupert Grint has written briefly about his relationship with J.K. Rowling, likening her to his "auntie".

The 33-year-old actor, who played Ron Weasley in all eight of the 'Harry Potter' films, wrote a lengthy piece for The Times in the UK as part of their 'What I've Learnt' series. The section has previously been written by Dermot O'Leary, Fearne Cotton, John Boyega and Jodie Whittaker.

Rupert Grint wrote about J.K. Rowling: "I don't necessarily agree with everything my auntie says, but she's still my auntie. It's a tricky one."

Rowling, the author of seven 'Harry Potter' novels as well as various other children's books and crime novels under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, came under fire in 2020 for remarks about the trans community on social media. Her remarks have caused many of her former fans to boycott her work.

Grint, and many of his 'Harry Potter' alums, issued responses separating themselves from the creator's comments. He previously stated to The Times: "I firmly stand with the trans community and echo the sentiments expressed by many of my peers. Trans women are women. Trans men are men. We should all be entitled to live with love and without judgment."

Since her initial remarks, Rowling has unfortunately continued to add fuel to the fire and still remains a polarizing figure. While she stated herself that "trans lives matter" and "trans rights are human rights," she also at the same time has spread rhetoric linked to the TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists) movement.

Rupert Grint and the majority of the 'Harry Potter' cast reunited for a 20th Anniversary Special, which aired on New Year's Day this year. According to reports, Rowling was extended an invitation to participate, but her team determined the archived footage from the writer in 2019 would suffice.

The Wizarding World franchise continues to create new feature films with Rowling on board as screenwriter. 'Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore' is scheduled for release this April.
