Daniel Radcliffe’s life has not always been easy. A few years ago, the interpreter of the most famous wizard in the world confided in the press explaining the problems he had had with alcohol on the set of the saga “Harry Potter”. He had then decided to get sober a month after the shooting stopped.
In an interview for BBC Radio 4, he returned to this episode of his life, far behind him today but which deeply marked him: “I drank a lot at the end of the shooting of the saga and also a little after it’s over. I was panicking, a bit because I didn’t know what I was going to do next, and I didn’t trust enough who I was to stay sober. ”
He also said: “If I went out and drank, I suddenly realized that I was becoming a subject of interest because I was not just” a drunk guy “. It was “Oh, Harry Potter is drunk at the bar.” And then you get really drunk and you realize that “Oh, people are watching you more now because now you’re starting to get very drunk, so I should probably drink some more to ignore what’s going on …” A hellish circle that the actor ended up breaking, helped by his family and friends.
Despite these problems, Daniel Radcliffe has not once regretted playing the role of Harry Potter for almost 10 years. However, he doesn’t want to slip into the young wizard’s cape again as he told “Variety” last February.
