Daniel Radcliffe is best known for his role as Harry Potter in the immensely popular Harry Potter franchise, and despite distancing himself from the boy wizard role with widely varied roles in film, television and theatre, the 26-year-old actor has no problem reminiscing about his time as the boy who lived, and recently revealed that he was terrified of his co-star Ralph Fiennes, who played the series' most evil villain, Lord Voldemort.

Chatting on US talk show The Jess Cagle Interview, the Kill Your Darlings actor spoke about how he was afraid of Ralph "for years." He said: "I remember when I was 15 doing scenes with Ralph for the first time. He was even scarier than Alan [Rickman] was at first. Alan was super intimidating to start off with as well, but then you get into it, but Ralph genuinely scared me for a few years."

The actor, who is currently starring in Now You See Me 2, also spoke about possibly reprising his role as Harry Potter in the future, telling Radio Times: "It would depend on the script. The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there!

"So I am saying 'No' for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future."

Another of Daniel's Harry Potter co-stars, Tom Felton, recently made headlines after it was announced that he would be joining the immensely popular superhero TV show The Flash as a series regular.

According to TV Line, the Draco Malfoy actor will play a CSI agent who tries to find out the truth about what Barry Allen is hiding, and fans have gone into a frenzy in anticipation of seeing Tom in the role. 

One person tweeted: "is it weird that I’m just as excited that the cast gets to work with the guy that played Draco? Like I’m excited for the cast," while another wrote: "Harry Potter and #TheFlash are colliding. I don't even know how to handle this right now."
