Rupert Grint for Thirteenth Doctor

This petition had 10 supporters

"The Harry Potter alum’s name came up frequently in the discussions of who was going to replace Matt Smith back in 2013. By the time Season 11 arrives, the baby-faced Grint (who’s now 27) would actually be older than Smith (27) when he took the role, so age isn’t necessarily an issue. Plus, it’s no secret that Who ratings have been down, so don’t be surprised if Chibnall and Co. try and tap into the vast Harry Potter fan base to attract new viewers." - Inverse (2016)

Grint’s version of The Doctor would easily be a joker, a light-hearted figure but still willing to charge head first into battle. One of The Doctor’s biggest fears is regeneration would give him ginger hair and it would be fun to see how The Doctor would react and have some self-deprecating humor at Grint’s expense. - Monkeys Fighting Robots (2016)

 "He’s well-liked, would fit the role, and his ability to play the lovable, cheeky, geeky character has worked well for him thus far." - Screen Rant (2017)
