Daniel Radcliffe Reveals Why He Won’t See “Harry Potter And The Cursed Child”
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he will never see Harry Potter And The Cursed Child in the theatre because he would be too concerned that he was being watched.
The 29-year-old actor made this known while making an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers when he made the admission on Friday night’s show.
“I’m probably not going to, I don’t have plans to,! he said before adding, “I think it would throw me into some sort of existential crisis.”
“It would not be a relaxing evening at the theatre. I would feel like I [was] being watched for my reaction.And maybe that is completely conceited and egotistical and people wouldn’t care, but I do feel if I was just surrounded by Harry Potter fans, it would be a little odd.”
On whether he is opened to the idea of wearing a disguise in order to see the play, he joked,
“The thing about a disguise is that if it stops working, then you’re just a dude who wore a disguise.”
Radcliffe took on the role of The Boy Who Lived when he was just 11 years old, and he played the titular character for ten years as part of the global phenomenon. Since first debuting on the West End in the summer of 2016, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been a runaway success on the West End and Broadway.
Penned by J.K. Rowling, the play runs over two parts, with each spanning a massive 2.5 hours across separate performances.
