Los Angeles: British actor Rupert Grint became nervous when he was shooting scenes for ‘Cbgb’ when musician Cheetah Crome turned up at the shoot.

The movie is a biopic based on the nightclub in New York and describes the punk scene. The 23-year-old said he became more determined to do justice to the role.

"Cheetah Chrome was actually on set. It`s the first time I`ve played a real person and there`s a pressure to get it right. It`s amazing he`s still alive, given the amount of drugs he did. He`s got a young son who was a big `Harry Potter` fan, so it was nice to meet him," Metro newspaper quoted Grint as saying.

The musician also had some advice for Grint.

"Cheetah had some advice about my performance and I had to get his voice right, he had quite a distinctive drug-affected mumbling voice and I had to do an American accent. We`re both ginger, so look similar. Hopefully people will buy it," he said.
