Daniel Radcliffe Quotes:
  • "I think I'm a tiny bit like Harry 'cos I'd like to have an owl. Yeah, that's the tiny bit, actually." (After being cast as Harry Potter)
  • "I'm just going to take it as it comes and see what happens. I think a bit of fame will probably just be fun, and I won't mind it. But I still want to lead a normal life with my friends." (about how he will deal with fame)
  • "I don't know. People tell me I look mournful. They say, "Cheer up, Dan, it's not that bad!" Sometimes I just look into space, which freaks people out. If I was ever required to do anything other than look haunted, I could. I'm a happy person. Though I don't, like, dot my "I's" with hearts or anything - that would be too happy."
  • "I'm not much of a cake person."
  • On believing in magic: "Absolutely. 100 percent."
  • "I was in the bath at the time, and my dad came running in and said, 'Guess who they want to play Harry Potter!?' and I started to cry. It was probably the best moment of my life."
  • "I'm not clumsy, I'm just accident prone."
  • Upon seeing the movie: "I'm a bit nervous about whether people will like it, but I've seen it, and I'm sure they will. It's really good - it's quite scary, it's quite emotional. Even I cried and I don't cry easily! I cried at the end credits when my name came up, and I was, like, Oh my God! I can't believe that's my name! I've met so many people since we started filming and it's been wonderful. I've progressed so far and changed so much since the beginning. It's been like a real journey."
  • "When I get into trouble at school I'd like to take an invisibility cloak, drape it over me and sneak out the door. Or I'd like to have a 3 headed-dog because then no one would argue with me"
  • "I dont mind being around girls.''
  • "I cried when I saw my name in the end credits!"
