“Harry Potter” is undoubtedly one of the most important sagas of the beginning of the 21st century. 11 years after the release of the last part, the little behind-the-scenes anecdotes continue to come out. The latest: that concerning the particular habits of Daniel Radcliffe on set.
Harry Potter : a memorable saga
The tragic death of Robbie Coltrane (who played Hagrid) as well as the many tributes paid reminded us that movies Harry Potter made a deep impression on the general public. The saga based on the eponymous novels by JK Rowling saw the light of day in cinemas in 2001. The same year as the first part of another literary adaptation: The Lord of the Rings.
However, unlike the trilogy directed by Peter Jackson between 2001 and 2003, the saga retracing the adventures of the little wizard never received the honors of an Oscar award. That didn’t stop him from becoming one of the most popular and profitable film series in cinematic history. A franchise that has become so famous that its main sets have since 2012 become a popular tourist area in London.
Movies Harry Potter especially revealed many actors. Indeed, among them, we obviously find the one who plays the main role: Daniel Radcliffe. Thus, at only 12 years old, he became a real star after the success ofHarry Potter to the Wizards’ school, the first great success of the saga. Spotted by the producer of the license David Heyman who detects in him a real presence, the British comedian grows and evolves under the eyes of the spectators for 10 years.
Having brilliantly succeeded in the post-Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe is now a recognized actor, able to play in all possible genres of films. However, whether he likes it or not, his image is still associated with the bespectacled wizard. Although the saga has been over for more than 10 years, the filming anecdotes continue to flourish. And it is not Tom Felton (interpreter of Draco Malfoy) who will say the opposite.
When Tom Felton cafte
Recently, in the special program Back to Hogwarts which marked the reunion of the actors and directors of the franchise, the fans had discovered that Daniel Radcliffe had had a crush on the actress Helena Bonham Carter (who plays the horrible Bellatrix Lestrange). During their reunion on this show, the star of the saga Harry Potter did not hesitate to read the content of the love letter he had written for her a few years ago.
Nevertheless, the 33-year-old actor also had a crush on another famous actress. And to remember the good memories of the rivalry between their two respective characters, Tom “Malfoy” Felton did not hesitate to display his former playmate.
Indeed, according to Variety, the blond actor would have revealed in his memoirs that Daniel Radcliffe had a surprising help for his broomstick flight sequences: a photo of Cameron Diaz. If the actor has never hidden his love of youth for the one who revealed himself in The Maskwe did not know that Radcliffe used one of his portraits as a landmark for his aerial scenes.
Thus, Tom Felton specifies that since this type of sequence is shot on a green screen, it is always difficult for an actor to know where to put his eyes. when he doesn’t actually live the scene he’s playing. The actor therefore tells us that Daniel Radcliffe has decided to use a photo of Cameron Diaz as a personal object to know where to keep his gaze. A method far from unhealthy, but terribly fun.
