As one of the most famous actors in the business, portraying Harry Potter in a ten year film run, Daniel Radcliffe has had his fair share of roles. One he did not anticipate was acting as a real-life receptionist at NYLON Magazine.

When Daniel went undercover for a hidden camera prank, NYLON workers had NO idea. The first few that walked past paid absolutely no attention to him. Finally, one girl in a blue striped shirt stopped dead in her tracks and stared at him before mustering up the courage to engage in conversation.


Daniel was a good sport, talking to admiring fans and even taking pictures.

But then the real work started.

When the guy in a blue shirt walks through the front doors, Daniel mutters, "Don't come in, don't come in, don't come in... Aww, man."

We've all been there, Daniel!

As a receptionist, Daniel's specialty was handing out bathroom keys and locating stamps. He almost cracked under the pressure; noticeably sweating bullets and displaying extreme anxiety. However, he makes up for it with his quick wit and charming personality.

"Literally every person that passes in front of the door I think, Don't need to come in here, don't need anything." -Daniel Radcliffe

One person who did no appreciate Daniel's lack of receptionist skills was Joe Jonas. When Daniel had trouble dialing an extension to get a hold of the person who scheduled Joe's meeting, Joe become noticeably agitated.

Well, it doesn't seem like Daniel will be pursuing a desk career anytime soon! But we can applaud him for having a go at it. Watching the international star behind the desk of an ordinary day job showed that he really is just like the rest of us. Good job, Daniel!
