The evening before, Daniel made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and revealed the advice Donald Trump gave him when he was 11.
“[Trump] was like, ‘How are you?’ And I was like, ‘I’m really nervous. I don’t know what I’m going to talk about on the show’,” Daniel told Seth. “And he just said, ‘You just tell them you met Mr. Trump.’ To this day, I can’t even relate to that level of confidence.”

Daniel Radcliffe stops to have a bite to eat in a park near the Hudson River on Tuesday afternoon (June 7) in New York City.
The 26-year-old Now You See Me 2 actor still isn’t sure if he’ll be attending the upcoming Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play during its run in England.
“I don’t know. I’m busy doing a play here at the moment, but I’m not sure,” he told E! News.
Daniel also explained why he doesn’t want to attend the show’s opening, saying, “It would be a weird one. I could be completely wrong in this, but I feel like if I went to see it that night, there’s going to be a lot of Harry Potter fans there in the audience obviously and would that then become a thing? Would it be more about them watching me watch the show or would it take away from the show. I would never want to do anything that would distract or take away from the show.”
The 26-year-old actor opened up about his girlfriend, his future roles and the reality of being a child star. Check it:
On how he chooses roles: “It’s, ‘Will I have fun doing this?’ And by fun, I don’t necessarily mean just have a blast the whole time and being totally relaxed, but will I be fulfilled?”
On girlfriend Erin Darke: “There isn’t a moment that I’m stressed out that Erin can’t make me feel more relaxed or calm. There’s not a moment that I’m sad that she can’t make me laugh. And we have a huge amount of fun together.”
On being a child star: “When you’re a kid and you’re in films, all you get asked is, ‘So, what’s going to happen to you?’… That attitude of, ‘You’re not going to last,’ is really impressed upon you at a young age when you’re a kid actor doing interviews. I don’t want to be that.”
“Found this and thought I’d share it with you all,” Daniel wrote. “Two days before the start of HP1 our producer, David Heyman, took Matthew Lewis, Rupert Grint and me (in my super-cool lime green zip-top!) to WWF INSURRECTION in Sheffield (this was prior to it becoming WWE). Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of the whole group. Judging by the sign behind us I think William Regal was making his entrance! And judging by our faces we weren’t quite brave enough to boo him.”
He added, “It was very good night! Go watch the brilliant Mr. Lewis in season 2 of Happy Valley on Netflix! Happy Friday everyone! – Dan?”
Daniel Radcliffe pulls out a “tada” in the official trailer for Now You See Me 2.
In the sequel film, one year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, The Four Horsemen — Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Jesse Eisenberg and Lizzy Caplan — resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate.
The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry (Radliffe), a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.
