Daniel Radcliffe: 'I Was Allergic to Harry Potter Glasses'

Daniel Radcliffe sits down to chat with “Harry Potter” author, J.K. Rowling in a behind-the-scenes feature available on the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Blu-ray and DVD.

According to ABC News, the 22-year-old actor who played the Boy Wizard told J.K. that he was once allergic to his first pair of Harry Potter glasses.

“It was brilliant because we put the glasses on and eventually we realized that I was allergic to them,” Daniel said, “I was actually allergic to the Harry Potter glasses. Because I had these two rings of whiteheads and spots that had come up around my eyes and it took us a week to realize that it was actually the glasses.”

Daniel and J.K.‘s 53-minute long conversation is featured on the disc on sale NOW!

    You know I am actually pissed at there actors. I mean if you will go on being all “Oh I was so misarable, Harry Potter did not allow me to be free” so don’t do it. I love Dan, but all this crying how they were unhappy, and how saga’s just control them and do not allow them to do anything else is pissing me off. There is millions of talented people who would kill to have an opportunity to be in something this huge, and will never have it. So for God sake get it together cause you are damn lucky. And when Emma Watson talked about how she feels free now that it’s over she can cut her hair and stuff, fine so don’t do it. Trust me honey no one is irreplacable. Celebs who cry about this just makes me pissed.

    @Mina: For me, this article for example, is just a”trivia” thing that they want to share with us. I’m not a huge HP fan but I appreciate the films (and books) and this little details they’re sharing to the fans. Also, about Emma, well, yes, there are a lot of people who would want their places. But you can’t blame the cast for telling about being “free”. Remember, their childhood (not only ours) were spent making this film. So, I don’t blame them if they felt they have no freedom at some point.

    Shots might seem like an unusual way to treat allergies, but they’re effective at decreasing sensitivity to triggers. The substances in the shots are chosen according to the allergens identified from a person’s medical history and by the allergist during the initial testing. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees the standards used in preparing the materials for allergy shots given in the United States.
