We might know him best as Ron Weasley, but Rupert Grint recently played Santa for a grieving British family, treating them to a free trip to the Harry Potter theme park in Orlando. Grint learned about the Carter family’s story and was moved to help them out.

The Carters lost their mother Denise in 2009 as she was giving birth to her fourth child with husband Steve. Grint accompanied the family to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando and gave them a tour of its shops and rides.

“The best thing was the look on the kids’ faces,” said Steve Carter. “There are great memories, and I know Denise was watching over us on the trip.”

Grint’s good deed was picked up by U.K. television execs and recently aired during the “Noel’s Christmas Presents” special.
