Daniel Radcliffe reacts when asked if he had visited the Harry Potter store or not
In the past, the actor revealed that he did not visit the story as everyone would have jumped on to him. Daniel Radcliffe appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and discussed his reaction to the Harry Potter store in New York. “They’ve just opened a massive Harry Potter store in New York, and I’ll walk past there and suddenly get there like, ‘Oh no, I’m here, I have to not be here very quickly, I have to run before somebody sees me,’” said the actor. While the actor has been away from the Wizarding world, the ardent fans want to see him.
After the conclusion of the franchise’s main films with 2011’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Radcliffe has been associated with many other projects. While plenty of fans still see him as the face of their favorite fantasy series, a new reboot TV series has been confirmed.
