“I used to watch Postman Pat when I was a small boy. My brother and sisters all did at some stage.” (Rupert Grint about Postman Pat)
Rupert Grint lent his voice to the character Josh in the animated film Postman Pat – You know you’re the one, based on the popular British TV series. The film celebrated its World Premiere at Leicester Square in London on 11 May 2014.
Postman Pat enters a TV talent show to win a trip to Italy for his family and finds his beliefs challenged by the people he meets on his journey.

Read Rave Reviews about Rupert in Postman Pat!
Wilf: All the lessons and work are about to be… Josh, try to remember why we are here. What would I be today if I’d wasted my life on video games?
Josh: A talent agent with only one client?
Simon: Right, what have you got for us? Josh, is it?
Josh: I thought I’d sing a song.
Simon: Well, that’s refreshing and new.
Josh: I’ve had a few dancing lessons too.
Wilf: Well, if this is the best they’ve got, that recording contract is in the bag.
Josh: Was I supposed to bring a bag
Josh: Oh yeah, that was good! Ow, what’d you do that for?
Wilf: Don’t clap for your enemy.
Josh: But he’s good!
Wilf: Josh wears clothes nearly all the time. Don’t you Josh?
Josh: Yeah, usually…
Josh: Pat, your cat’s amazing, he’s already beaten Wilf’s high score! What’s his name?
Wilf: We have to up our game, Joshy boy. You need to be on fire at the finals next week. Charm them, make them love you.
Josh: Mmhm. Charm. Love. Got it.
Wilf: What he’s got a video game?
Josh: Oh yeah, and it’s great, Wilf! You deliver mail, have a cat and are nice to people. Every now and again, you can rescue a sheep. It’s the hottest game around. Totally massive
Josh: Wilf, you know, he’s actually pretty good. I’ll do my best. But how about we just let the best man win?
Josh: Please. Easiest game ever.
Josh: Looks like you’ve got something to sing for now. Doesn’t he, Wilf?
Rupert about Postman Pat
“I actually haven’t done the singing bit yet. I think it’s going to be a cover, but it might be something written for it, but I don’t know yet. Just hoping they’ve got good auto-tuning *laughs*.”
“Postman Pat was basically a huge part of my childhood. It was one of my favourite shows, and I was definitely going to do it ‘cause I love Postman Pat.”
“It’s fun, I think it’s good and very loyal to the Postman Pat I knew as well, so hopefully it’s going to be good fun.”
(RG.us Exclsuive Interview, September 2012)
“Basically, Postman Pat enters a talent show kind of thing, like X-Factor or Pop Idol that kind of thing. He learns that he’s actually got a really good singing voice. I’m kind of like his rival in the competition and I have this evil manager who’s always trying to sabotage Pat’s chance by doing all of these crazy things.”
