“It’s certainly very strange to say, because it just seems like it shouldn’t be happening, but I got into Justin Bieber’s music video, which I would never have seen,” he told the publication.
He explained that after the pop star’s team found out about the role, they agreed to talk on the phone to answer some of Tremblay’s questions. “We kind of arranged to call each other for a while, but we didn’t really get the exact time, so he ended up calling me when I was in the grocery store … I was like my parents:” go out because Justin Bieber is calling me. “
Trembla later found that he was “nervous”; about starring in the video because “he had never actually played a real person before.”
“I’ve always played fictional characters, so I just really wanted to make sure I felt the way the song felt and the way Justin wanted me to feel,” he continued. “I really need to understand – it’s a little more serious song, but I’m very happy that people hear it so they can see the story. It’s really good.”
