Katy B has revealed that she auditioned to play Hermione Granger in Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone when she was eight years old.

However, the singer was cruelly rejected for the 2001 film after telling producers she hadn't read the book it was based on.

Speaking to The Guardian the dubstep siren, who releases her debut album 'On A Mission' on Monday (April 4), said she also auditioned for the musical Annie.

"I auditioned to be Hermione in Harry Potter," she explained. "They were like, 'Have you read the book?' I was like, 'No.' And then they said, 'Next!'"

Charlotte Church also allegedly auditioned for the part, which ended up going to Emma Watson, who is now worth over $30 million (£19 million).

Dubstep/pop crossovers may not pay quite as well…
