Young cancer patient Sydney Becker got the chance of a lifetime when she was invited backstage after Wednesday night's performance of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway, where she met Daniel Radcliffe, of whom she is a great fan. Sydney released a photo of herself and Dan backstage, as well as an anecdote of how she got to meet the actor.

“When it ended, I made my way out to the side doors where all the actors come out to sign autographs,” she wrote late Thursday night. She was given a special backstage pass. “As soon as we walked in, we were practically on stage. Backstage, but on it. We were in and surrounded by all the props and the stage was in clear view. We could walk on, but we were waiting for Daniel. It was so cool …

"Finally, Daniel came out and he was very friendly. He was very short though. I was about his height … My mom went to shake his hand, but she was so excited she just hugged him instead. So, we all hugged him. He was very nice.

"He also signed my Playbill, even if he did spell my name wrong, he gave me a nickname … kind of. ‘To Sid, Love from Daniel Radcliffe.’ I would ask him to sign my head, but I thought that may be a little much. Next time. It was so much fun and totally made either my day or my life. I’m still deciding.”
