Daniel Radcliffe barely auditioned for the role of Harry Potter

After seeing Daniel Radcliffe in the 1999 BBC adaptation of “David Copperfield”, director Chris Columbus was determined to bring the young actor in to audition. However, Radcliffe’s parents weren’t interested in the idea of ​​their son signing on to a number of films, which would initially be shot in Los Angeles. Radcliffe recalls, “So my mom and dad were like, ‘No, that was a disruption in his life.”

But, after meeting producer David Heyman at a theater, the Radcliffs agreed to let Radcliffe audition.

You Won’t Believe Who Jason Isaacs Originally Wanted to Play

It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy. However, in HBO Max’s Harry Potter reunion, Isaacs admitted that he didn’t initially want to play Draco’s evil father in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.” “I believe I ended up playing Lucius because I didn’t want to,” he shared. “I went to audition for Gilderoy Lockhart and Chris said, ‘That’s great. Would you mind reading another part.'”

As Isaacs detailed, he read Lucius “to gritted teeth”, because he was meant to play Captain Hook in “Peter Pan” and didn’t want to play “two children’s villains “. However, Isaacs’ bitterness towards Lucius is “exactly what is needed” for this part.

Only Alan Rickman knows the full story

During a conversation with Gary Oldman, Daniel Radcliffe revealed that Alan Rickman was the only person in the cast who knew the truth about Severus Snape. “I wish I had the whole picture,” Oldman commented to Radcliffe while discussing the twists and turns of the series. “We just found out [through the] book.”

According to Radcliffe, Rickman is “with the inside content” because he asked author JK Rowling for more information early on, and added, “He never told Chris [Columbus], never told anyone. Chris would actually say to him, ‘Why would you do that?’ He said, ‘I’ll tell you later.’ “

Emma Watson says she fell in love with Tom Felton

As the main cast goes from children to teenagers on the set of Harry Potter, it’s no surprise to learn that some of the stars have fallen for each other. During the reunion, Emma Watson admitted to having a crush on co-star Tom Felton.

“I walked into the room where we were tutoring,” she said. “The assignment was to draw what you think God looks like, and Tom drew a girl with a cap upside down on a skateboard. And I don’t know what to say – I fell in love with him. “

Watson further revealed that she would “come every day and look up his number on the call board.” Alas, nothing romantic ever happened between them.

Rupert Grint’s reaction to Ron and Hermione’s kiss

Ron and Hermione may have fallen in love in the Harry Potter series, but the actors who played them were afraid of that kiss scene in the final movie. According to Emma Watson, she and Rupert Grint struggled with the scene because they could never “take it seriously.”

“I knew I was going to have to be the one to make this happen,” she added, “because Rupert wouldn’t, so I just had to make it.”

She later called the kiss “the hardest thing” she’d ever had to do, since they became siblings, noting, “It just felt wrong. So wrong on every level. “

As for how Grint remembers that kiss? “I think I’ve gone black. I just remember your face getting closer and closer to mine.”

Daniel Radcliffe’s Flirty Signature to Helena Bonham Carter

At the reunion, Helena Bonham Carter took a moment to share a cheeky note Daniel Radcliffe gave her during production. Apparently, Bonham Carter asked for an autograph from Radcliffe, who wrote: “It’s been a pleasure to be your co-star and waiter as I’m always holding your coffee. I love you. And I just wish I was born like that 10 years earlier. I can [have had] a chance. Lots of love and thanks for the coolness. “

Helena Bonham Carter revealed that she treasures this note very much and keeps it in her bathroom.

Convert in three hours

Although Ralph Fiennes’ nose was cut out via CGI because of his terrifying transformation into Lord Voldemort, the actor explained that the rest of the look took a while to work out. “It took about three hours to put on the make-up,” he recalls, “the painting of my hands, my nails, my teeth. And even with my nose, I felt very good.”

Co-star Jason Isaacs expressed that he was “terrified” of Ralph while the cameras were rolling.

“Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: ​​Return to Hogwarts” is available now on HBO Max.
