Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he was left ‘pretty devastated’ after being forced to keep Harry Potter’s shaggy bowl haircut when he was supposed to start dating girls.
The Harry Potter cast members have reunited to celebrate the Philosopher’s Stone’s 20th anniversary in a new special for HBO Max and NOW.
And during the special, which won’t feature J.K. Rowling following backlash to her remarks about the trans community, Daniel is joined by Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger co-stars Rupert Grint and Emma Watson where they reflect on their first kisses and dating while starring in one of the biggest film franchises of all time throughout their teenage years.
‘Every part of my life is connected to Potter and to Leavesden,’ Daniel said, starring as the young wizard when he was 12-years-old right until he was 22.
‘My first kiss is connected to someone here, my first girlfriends were here… It all spirals out from the Potter set somewhere.’
He also recalled the moment he was told he would need to be keeping Harry’s signature look until filming the final film had ended.
‘We’re like, “No, no, no, no, no. You’re not leaving us like this? We’re supposed to be becoming teenagers and dating girls in this film!”’ he gasped.
‘“That’s not what it’s going to be, is it?”’ So, I think we were pretty devastated as we realised that it was.’
A trailer for the Harry Potter reunion landed last month, confirming an all star line-up including Emma Thompson, Helena Bonham Carter, Gary Oldman, Tom Felton and more all taking part.
A particularly moving moment saw Rupert console a very emotional Emma and obviously fans were in tears.
