It was recently reported that Rupert had taken the HM Revenue and Customs to court over a tax refund he never received.
The dispute over tax returns from 2008-2010 will be heard in the Tax Chamber at London’s Royal Courts of Justice and while no official amount for the possible tax refund has not been mentioned in court, his accountant Dan Clay mentioned outside the court that it could be around £1 million.
“Found this and thought I’d share it with you all,” Daniel wrote. “Two days before the start of HP1 our producer, David Heyman, took Matthew Lewis, Rupert Grint and me (in my super-cool lime green zip-top!) to WWF INSURRECTION in Sheffield (this was prior to it becoming WWE). Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of the whole group. Judging by the sign behind us I think William Regal was making his entrance! And judging by our faces we weren’t quite brave enough to boo him.”
He added, “It was very good night! Go watch the brilliant Mr. Lewis in season 2 of Happy Valley on Netflix! Happy Friday everyone! – Dan?”
The 27-year-old actor released a statement, saying, “I am devastated to hear about the passing of Alan Rickman, I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to work with him on numerous occasions – Even though he has gone – I will always hear his voice. My thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.”
In case you didn’t know, Rupert and Alan starred in all eight Harry Potter films together.
