Tragically, some child actors are going through some rough times. They start their career at a young age and have an unconventional childhood, growing up in the industry. It may lose its relevance and may fall into difficult times. Thank God Harry Potter Fans, we can proudly announce that most of the cast members in Potter All films managed to grow into a well-adapted adult. Being the titular character, Daniel Radcliffe received almost all the attention and was probably more at risk of facing adversity, but fortunately, he’s grown up to be a seemingly unassuming actor and enjoy a prolific career. Last month, Daniel appeared on a radio show where he once again proved that he is a friendly and sympathetic person when he saved a fan from some punishment.
Appear in Capital breakfasta UK morning radio programme, Daniel has promoted his latest short films, the lost City, where eccentric billionaire Abigail Fairfax plays one of his few villainous roles. When asked how much he enjoys playing the bad guy, Daniel expresses how much he likes her.
“He’s cool. I mean, you have no responsibility to be liked, to be associated with the audience in any way. You just have to go in and play a crazy guy. And in particular, this guy is a particularly interesting villain because all his evil is driven by pathetic desires, as if Sandra was desperate [Bullock’s character] To think he’s cool even when he’s kidnapping her. He desperately needs his father’s approval. You know, there’s a lot out there.”
Given Daniel’s recent role as an antagonist, the radio show decided to play a game to determine if it was “Daniel Badcliffe”, asking three uncomfortable questions and if he didn’t answer, a high-profile fan, named Elena, should suffer retribution. The first question asked Daniel what his most wasteful purchase was and how much was spent. Although Daniel admitted it was probably art, he wasn’t comfortable revealing the price, which forced Elena to sniff one of her armpits after rehearsing to the show clerk. After this punishment, Daniel was asked to name three celebrity crushes, which Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore called out. The hosts were not satisfied with his answer as they are not current celebrities. For the pressure of time, Daniel appointed Juno Temple, his actor in the film Centuries. Finally, Daniel was asked to rate Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, and Brad Pitt, his co-stars from the lost Citytalent based. To save Elena from encountering a tarantula, Daniel called Bullock the most talented, closely followed by Tatum, and finally jokingly included Pete because he never had a chance to meet him.

Follow Daniel the lost City Promotional tour by appearing on empire Podcast, where he revealed that he wrote a script he hopes to direct in two years. Citing the common writing tip of “write what you know”, Daniel realized that because he had lived an unconventional life, he felt that the scenario of life in the film industry would not be viable, but emphasized that he had written something adjacent to the film industry.
“I have an idea for something I wrote. I hope to go direct. It will be in a couple of years because at least the next eighteen months have already pretty much counted. People always say, ‘Write what you know.’ I have lived a life that is not bargain, so I don’t want to write that. But I found a way to write something kind of related to the film industry, about that.”
Daniel later confirmed that if he directed this movie, he wouldn’t act in it, indicating that he wanted to focus only on directing. Also, as a director, you are very involved in the editing process, which usually involves re-watching the movie multiple times. Daniel joked that he would rather not see himself many times.
