Jacob Tremblay Opens Up About Playing a Young Justin Bieber In New Music Video

Jacob Tremblay is dishing on portraying a younger Justin Bieber!

The 14-year-old actor played the 16-year-old version of Justin from his My World Tour in 2010-11 in the “Lonely” music video.

“I just wanted to really make Justin proud, and do a good job to portray the feelings he wanted me to,” Jacob said in an interview with ET Canada.

“It definitely feels really weird to say it, because it just sounds like it shouldn’t be happening but, I am in a Justin Bieber music video, which is something I would have never seen coming,” he added to The Loop. “I ended up getting a text message from Justin Bieber asking if I had any questions, which I did — I had a lot of questions.”

“So we kind of organized that we would call each other some time, but we didn’t really get an exact time, so he ended up calling me when I was in the grocery store… I was like, to my parents, ‘I have to go outside because Justin Bieber’s calling me,’” Jacob continued.

“I had actually never played a real person before,” he said. “I’ve always played made-up characters, so I just really wanted to make sure that I had the feelings of the song and how Justin wanted me to feel. I really got to understand — it’s a bit more of a serious song but I’m really excited for people to hear it, so they can see the story. It’s really good.”

Lonely is out now with @itsbennyblanco. When he and @finneas showed me this song to be honest it was hard to listen to considering how tough it was to get through some of these chapters. I went into the studio and sang through it which wasn’t easy but started to really see the importance of telling this story! It made me realize we all feel lonely at times! Being someone in my position I believe it is powerful to express vulnerability and that’s why I believe this song is so powerful! And @jacobtremblay is so talented. It was emotional to see him play me from the outside looking in
