The British actor, who played the titular role in the “Harry Potter” movie franchise based on author J.K.Rowling’s fantasy novels, revealed Wednesday it wasn’t because he thought he’d be thrown “into some sort of existential crisis.”
Instead, Radcliffe told “Late Night” host Seth Meyers it was because he believed “it would not be a relaxing evening at the theater” as “I feel like I would be being watched for my reaction.”
“And maybe that is completely conceited and egotistical and people wouldn’t care,” Radcliffe countered. “But I do feel if I was just surrounded by Harry Potter fans it would be a little odd.”
Radcliffe also explained why he wouldn’t don a disguise to attend the show, which is based on a story written by Rowling. “The thing about a disguise is that if it stops working then you’re just a dude who wore a disguise,” he noted.
