Daniel Radcliffe revealed in a new interview that he once led Harry Potter fans by talking to him.
“I was going to school in Japan for a commercial stunt … and I patted a girl [on the arm] as I walked around her and said, ‘Oh, sorry.’ And boom! I ran away, “Radcliffe recalls on the Jonathan Ross Show.” I got up and talked to her, and that was too much. And she ran away. ”
The Harry Potter alum added that it takes a minute to have fun despite the strangeness of the meeting. “Because it does not last forever,” Radcliffe continued. “When you have such a moment, you have to understand in a way how strange and beautiful it is.”
In addition to talking about the Harry Potter loyalty franchise that followed, Radcliffe recently revealed that his favorite work is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix from 2007. “I was a little older back then, somehow I’ve come to appreciate it better. ” said the actor at the time. While Radcliffe admitted that fans usually do not think they prefer the Order of the Phoenix, the most remembers working with Oscar-winner Gary Oldman, played by Sirius, Harry’s father.
Next, Radcliffe will celebrate the release of the first Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, bringing best friends Emma Watson and Rupert Grint back to the 20th anniversary of HBO Max: Back to Hogwarts Special.
The trio will be connected by Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton, Tom Felton, Mark Williams, Evanna Lynch, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, Ian Hart, James Phelps, and Oliver Phelps.
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling will not attend the special meeting. Although HBO Max has not commented on his absence, several backups have been made in front of the author for comments across society in recent years.
Radcliffe, Grint, Eddie Redmayne, and Miriam Margoyles were part of the Wizarding World team that criticized Rowling’s comments. Radcliffe tells in a statement at the time: “Transgender women are women. Any claim to the contrary destroys the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against any advice from health associations that are much more experienced than Jo [Rowling] or me …”
The Return to Hogwarts premieres on January 1, 2022, on HBO Max. You can now stream all Harry Potter movies on HBO Max.
