One of the stars of Harry Potter was just spotted at a bakery in Toronto

One of the main actors from the Harry Potter movie series was spotted at a bakery in Toronto this week. 

Rupert Grint, who we all know and love as Ron Weasley, stopped into Lamanna's, an Italian bakery and pizzeria in Scarborough. 

The actor was seen walking in with his family and, according to the business, bought some strawberry shortcake doughnuts and the pizzeria's famous Big Slice

Before leaving, he made sure to take a group shot with the owners.

Grint is in Toronto right now working on an upcoming Netflix show called "The Cabinet of Curiosities" with filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. 

The new show is supposed to be a horror series, and features other actors such as Ben Barnes, who played Prince Caspian in Narnia and Crispin Glover, best known as George McFly from Back to the Future. 

Grint was also seen in and around Hamilton, Ont., earlier this month, filming for the same series. 

The actor must've flown back to Toronto this week after he got together with his Potter co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson for the movie series' 20th anniversary

Harry Potter 20th anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is set to air on New Year's Day 2022, showing an in-depth look into the magic of the films, and reuniting all the characters, two decades later. 

It seems there's lots of Potter stuff happening around Toronto right now; a play called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is coming up at Ed Mirvish Theatre. Tickets will go on sale starting Dec. 1st. 

Grint should be in Toronto for at least the next couple of months working on the Netflix show, so keep an eye out for any more appearances the actor may make around the city.
