Daniel Radcliffe News & Rumors
Update 09/29/16: Radcliffe "Donald Trump not as ideologically pure as Voldemort."
In other words, Trump doesn't really believe anything he stands for. Radcliffe explains his point in the Sky News clip below:
Daniel Radcliffe: "I don’t want people to forget about Harry Potter"
Daniel Radcliffe has put an end to those will-he, won't-he rumors surrounding the maybe-but-probably-not Warner Bros. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child movie adaptation. Talking to the Independent, it's clear the Boy who Lived still holds a dear place in the actor's heart, but Harry Potter is not a role Daniel Radcliffe will ever play again:
“I don’t want people to forget about Harry Potter, I’m incredibly proud of those films. I also don’t want to repeat myself in terms of what I did with Harry, but in terms of Woman in Black and now Imperium, I think I get an undeserved amount of credit playing diverse things because people saw me playing one role for a long time. Really, it’s just what most actors want; as varied a career as possible. I’m just lucky enough to be in a position where I can do that.”
Totally fair enough, and if Swiss Army Man taught us anything, it's that variety is definitely the spice of this guy's life!
Daniel Radcliffe: Hollywood is "undeniably racist"
Radcliffe has been pretty vocal about equality lately. After speaking up about the pains of "coming out" as "feminist" — more the fact you shouldn't have to, it should be a given — he's moved on to discuss Hollywood's race issues. Talking to the BBC, the star revealed that working on his latest picture Imperium has opened his eyes to how the "very, very progressive" nature of the film industry still has a long way to come.
Talking about this year's "All White" Oscars ceremony, when asked whether Hollywood was "racist," he responded:
"It's pretty undeniable. We like to think of ourselves as being a very, very progressive industry, but we have been lagging behind in all kinds of areas."

Daniel Radcliffe Biography
One of the lucky ones, Daniel Radcliffe's career biography kicks off at the tender age of 10, scoring the leading role of the scarred protagonist in the insanely popular Harry Potter franchise, a part which would take him through the next ten years of his life. As you'd probably imagine, this bonkers level of fame so young wasn't without its downsides — Radcliffe's fellow pupils grew hostile towards him after the release of the first film, resulting in the majority of his education taking place on-set. Though, to be fair, school was never his favorite pastime anyway. The pressure of fame lead to a spell of alcoholism, on which he's thankfully no longer dependent.
Now comfortable in his own skin, Radcliffe has grown into one of the few celebrities you could honestly call a grounded individual — after all, nobody who takes themselves too seriously would rap Blackalicious's "Alphabet Aerobics" on The Tonight Show, make a movie about a farting corpse or get naked on stage with a horse now, would they?
