Rupert Grint: "Be determined and believe in yourself."

In one of the most candid interviews we've seen, Flonki.com (a Dutch website focused on child-development) has released a new video, speaking with Rupert in his trailer on the Moonwalkers set.

In costume as Johnny, Rupert opens up regarding his shyness as both a child and now, into adulthood, saying:

"I was always quite a shy child but I found, when I went on stage, that I could hide behind a character. It was an escape for me to be someone else. It really does help your confidence to be able to mimic what you see."

When asked his advice for young people who want to find and pursue their passion in life, Rupert remarks:

"I'd say keep your determination, and try new things. I was very determined during the auditioning process [for Harry Potter] and so wanted to be a part of those films...in any shape or form. I wanted to be noticed."

Rupert parts the segment with a touching, "You have to believe in yourself.", which is surely an affirmation we'd all do well to remember, from time-to-time :)
