"Apparently I'm going to take the I'm UK grime scene by storm. I have no idea what they're talking about," Felton told reporters at the NYC premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Monday night.

When asked by the U.K. Sun about his post-Potter career plans, he said over the weekend, "I was thinking of doing some [British group] N-Dubz-style stuff. I am looking to get into the grime rap UK scene."

But now Felton says, "I can only think that it was an attempt at dry wit that went completely over their head. I don't know. Needless to say, I'm not planning on taking the UK grime scene by storm."

"I have no idea. That's a good question, I'll think about it," he quipped.
