Daniel Radcliffe Reveals Why He Played 'Harry Potter' For 10 Years And The Reason Is Hilarious

Without a doubt, there is not one person on Earth that would look at Daniel Radcliffe and call him 'Daniel Radcliffe'. He is Harry Potter and that is a fact. No scientific experiment or even god can convince Potterheads otherwise. In 2001, we met a young Harry, the chosen one, who grew up to beat Voldemort and become one of the greatest wizards in the world.

Over the decades, Potterheads saw Harry diving into the Chambers of secrets, beating the experts in Quidditch and saving the lives of his peers in Hogwarts. The journey was magical, blissful and full of wonders. While it was an experience of a lifetime for us, Daniel Radcliffe was merely doing it to avoid going to school.

In an interview with A24 Podcast, the actor who recently celebrated his 33rd birthday revealed the unusual yet hilarious reason for playing Harry Potter for 10 years. The actor revealed that he did it to avoid going to school. ''My mom and dad asked me between every film, basically, ‘Are you still enjoying it, and do you want to go back?' I was always like, ‘Yes. I hate school.' '' Radcliffe quipped.

Although it was said in a comical tone, we can't help but relate to it. Every Potterhead in the world would rather attend the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry than the plain ol' regular schools. In fact, given a chance, even adult Potterheads would do it in a heartbeat.
