There was this information program in England referred to as ‘Newsround’ and so they wished children my age to type of come ahead and ship in functions for them. So I principally simply made a videotape of myself type of doing a rap.”
In response to Grint, this was stuffed with details about him, like his age and peak, and he stated the primary line was, “Hey there my title is Rupert Grint. I hope you want this and do not suppose I stink.” The lyrics aren’t precisely fireplace, however it clearly made him stand out sufficient to get an audition from the producers. The remainder is historical past.
