Richard E. Grant and Ryan Reynolds in Killer's Bodyguard (2017)

The initial E in his name came about because there was already someone registered with Equity as Richard Grant. Richard was born Richard Grant Esterhuysen. So with permission of the other Richard Grant and Equity, he added the E. to his name.

Unlike other actors to take on the role of The Doctor ("Doctor Who") in their careers, he is the only one to play the role ("Scream of the Shalka") before returning as another major character in the series ("The Snowmen" as Dr. Simeon/The Great Intelligence).

As a struggling actor in 1983, he was renting a Notting Hill bedsit in London for £30 per week. Thirty six years later he stood outside that very same residence to announce on his Twitter feed that he'd been Oscar-nominated for Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018), his very first nomination.

Even though in real life he's allergic to alcohol, his very first film Withnail & I (1987) revolved around him playing a character who drinks all kinds of alcoholic drinks.

When Grant married Joan Washington, he gained a stepson, Tom, Joan's son from a previous marriage. The first baby that Joan and Richard had together, Tiffany, was born prematurely during the filming of Withnail & I. Tiffany only survived for a few hours after her birth.

Has an aversion to hard-boiled eggs, mostly the due to the shape ("like a fart on a plate"). Fried eggs don't bother him.
