Daniel Radcliffe Admits He Was ‘Genuinely Scared’ Of One Of His Harry Potter Co-Stars
Us too, Daniel.
We’ll be honest here, we’ve been terrified of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named from the first mention in the Harry Potter books, so it's no big surprise that Ralph Fiennes’ portrayal of the character left Daniel Radcliffe a little scared.
Us too, Daniel. Us too.
Speaking during an appearance in the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview, Daniel explained that the Harry Potter villains were well-cast, with Ralph being ‘genuinely intimidating’.
Daniel recalled: “I remember when I was 15 doing scenes with Ralph for the first time. He was even scarier than Alan [Rickman, Professor Snape] was at first.
“Alan was super intimidating to start off with as well, but then you get into it, but Ralph genuinely scared me for a few years.”
Daniel previously told the Radio Times that he wouldn’t completely rule out playing Harry again in the future, explaining: “It would depend on the script. The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary.
“But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”
