Daniel Radcliffe: Sorry I Wasn't At Comic-Con!

Daniel Radcliffe: Sorry I Wasn't At Comic-Con!

Some fans were upset when Daniel Radcliffe wasn’t at the 2010 Comic Con alongside costar Tom Felton over the weekend.

The 21-year-old actor was actually off celebrating his birthday in Russia and finishing up some voice work on another project. Daniel called up the L.A. Times and explained, “I apologize to all the wishful thinkers for my disappointing non-presence. I’ve never done the Comic-Con thing and I really, really want to experience that.”

And what about that birthday in Russia: “It was fantastic. I was in St. Petersburg for my birthday, which is probably the most beautiful, the most incredible, wonderful place I’ve ever been in my life. It really is absolutely amazing. I went with two friends and it was brilliant.”

Although Tom was quick to out him on crying during the final scenes of the Harry Potter films, Daniel couldn’t deny it, “You know what, I’d love to libel him and call it a lie, but, darn, he’s absolutely right. We all three of us — me, and Emma — we just wept. And I’ve never seen Rupert Grint cry. That was really weird.”

    I have to say, I have a lot of respect for the Harry Potter cast. They’re an intelligent, talented, classy bunch that stay out of the limelight and avoid the type of scandals you see from other people their ages. Plus they all seem like nice, down-to-earth people despite all the attention they’ve recieved because of the movies. I’m sad that it’s over, but I really hope they’re all successful in whatever they choose to do next. They definitely deserve it.

    FILM IT FILM IT FILM IT! I hope they recorded the trio crying, I would love to see that moment together! I hope they filmed a really sad scene that involves some crying, that would make that scene extra special!

    Well, Dan, if you want to experience Comic-Con, then you should have went!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A lot of people said he doesn’t need to apologise, but I think he does. I mean, if you have a movie convention, all of the actors from the other movie are showing up, and you don’t show up to promote your movie, it’s like a huge “f*ck you” to your fans. You could have made plans earlier this year to just set up a couple of days free from whatever you’re doing and freaking go. I know the trio were busy with their own things, birthdays, charity drives, visiting other countries and frolocking around with boyfriends and such, but you know what, you could have held off those things for a while. But, it’s not hard to forgive Dan.

    My mother’s birthday is on Christmas. Now that’s a downer for her. Not because of what the day means. We celebrate Christmas, and my mother never got to experience 2 separate days of presents and celebration. It had to accumulate into 1 day and that’s it.

    Still, I forgive you, Dan! I hope you had fun in Russia, Happy Birthday and I can’t wait to see what the rest of your career has in store!! I can’t wait to see what Rupert and Emma are going to do next, either.

    You’re never going to find a trio of actors like this in your life. Yeah, the Twilight trio are close-knit friends (and more), but the difference is one trio consists of talented young actors, intelligent/classy role models and hightly respected and praised actors. *cough* *cough* *Harry Potter Trio* *cough*.

    aw dan, what a cutie.

  • amy

    i like this cast a lot. they’re so level-headed and they don’t seem to be attention seekers. the love and passion they have for the fans really shows.

    one thing though. libel = written, slander = spoken….c’mon dan, what if you get to play a young hotshot lawyer one day? you gotta know these things.

  • Celia

    You don’t have to apologize, Dan! It was announced weeks before hand that none of the cast were attending! It’s not like he was supposed to be there and didn’t show up.
    He’s such an AWESOME and SEXY guy! I saw some pictures from his 21st B-Day in Russia and he had a lot of fun. Needless to say, he did get pretty drunk. :D

  • Avril
