Daniel Radcliffe Talks ‘Twilight’ And Robert Pattinson

May 14th, 2011 // 13 Comments

Daniel Radcliffe is a favorite in the hearts of many a ‘Harry Potter’ fan, but he says that anyone could be popular if they had played the famous wizard. At the 92Y series Broadway Talks in Manhattan, Radcliffe spoke on his role as ‘Harry Potter’ and the success of Robert Pattinson in the ‘Twilight’ series.

Harry Potter was a phenomenon when I was 7-years-old, that’s when [the book] came out; it was a phenomenon before I was even remotely attached,” Radcliffe told E!, “The reason I say [that anyone who played him would have become famous] is I was speaking to the director of the first Twilight film, and she said she went to a reading of the books Stephenie Meyer was giving of the first Twilight book. This was before Robert Pattinson was cast. And she said the name Edward Cullen, and the audience went crazy at the name.”

Seen here, actor Daniel Radcliffe listens to some music as he takes a walk through the West Village in New York City, New York City on May 13th. Even though Dan is a little short, he is one adorably handsome guy! I’m loving his leather jacket and slim jeans combo here! Recently, Dan was overlooked for a Tony award, but got a standing ovation for ‘How To Succeed In Business’. His new film ‘The Woman In Black’ looks to be one fabulous display of handsome Daniel Radcliffe!

    Yes ROB, All your friends is my friends to . I think Daniel R. is perfect for my daughter ; what say ROB? No comment for ‘ Harry Potter’ because I don’t watch. P.S. I LOVE YOU ROB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      The quote is more intensive than this. Daniel sounded really jealous of Rob because he’s stuck on Broadway and can’t get any lead acting roles in Hollywood. Daniel was wrong about anyone being able to play Edward because Rob wasn’t initially loved by some fans. There was a petition. So anyone couldn’t play Edward and be loved.

      Daniel is mad. He’s angry because he’s been Harry for ages and no one is falling over him anymore. He can walk the streets of NY and no one cares. Dan needs to get over himself. Rob was a struggling broke actor all the years he was Harry Potter making millions.

      Rob’s earned everything he’s getting today. He’s taken his lumps. Maybe it’s time for Mr. Dan to get his.

    I’m a big fan of the Harry Potter series and I can see where he’s coming from here. If someone else had played Edward or Harry, they would have received just as much attention as Dan and Rob. However, there was a reason as to why each of them were cast in their respective roles. With that, I hope to see the Harry Potter cast become very successful after completing the series. I can’t wait to see ‘The Woman in Black’. I wish I could see Dan on Broadway, but I’m not sure if that will be possible.

    Oh and to the ‘Rob fans’ on here, Dan wasn’t insulting him. While I’m not a Rob fan myself, he seems like a decent guy and I wouldn’t be surprised if he would say the same thing about himself that Dan said. It’s the roles they played that gained them fame and attention. If someone else had those roles, they would be famous instead.

      Rob would absolutely say the same thing about himself. However, he would NEVER say that about Daniel, and that’s the difference. You can diminish your own success and that’s just being humble. But to diminish someone else’s comes off as sour grapes.

    I read all of your comments sumaya siddika, and let me tell you what:
    First of all, you have a veeery bad taste to think that Harry Potter is boring and Twilight is better (God’s sake!).
    Secondly, I don’t want to harm you, but….Robert will never,never,never,never,NEVER EVER reach Daniel, my dear…..Daniel is far away better actor and good looking man than Robert. Robert is just a tepid actor for tepid movies…no interesting at all! And Robert Pattinson is NOT sexy or cute or anything else you say in MY eyes….(the only Robert i find sexy is Robert Sheehan)
    I saw Twilight and I must inform you that I fell asleep from the first 20 minutes….
    And PLEASE, don’t think that Twilight is better in any way than Harry Potter….Before the first Harry Potter movie was made, who knew Twilight or Robert Pattinson?….Ummm…..Nobody??? So stop telling these stupid things, ok?
    To end that, you shouldn’t insult the celebrities you don’t like. You like Robert, I like Daniel,Rupert and Emma, that’s your opinion and i respect that. I said my opinion and I believe you are wrong,but….you are not me :) and Dan is not ugly :)
    Anyway,be more gentle next time :) thanx for hearing me :)
