Access Hollywood released a preview of their interview with Daniel Radcliffe recently, set to air Friday evening in the U.S., where he chatted about some interesting fan experiences for both Harry Potter and How to Succeed. Dan also revealed an awkward experience during a performance of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, where actress Katie Holmes was in the audience (Dan's character Finch mocks Holmes' husband Tom Cruise in a scene where he jumps violently on a sofa). We will have the video segment here as soon as it is online.

 “Particularly this last [Harry Potter] film, I’m so proud of the way we’ve gone out ‘cause I think it’s so much better than any of the other films made.”

When asked about being a global superstar in other countries and the reception he gets from “Potter” fans, he responded, “When I got to the airport in Japan at 13, there were 5,000 people screaming and waiting at arrivals… If I walk down the street there, there is just this kind of snowballing of people. I bumped into this girl in the corridor and said, ‘Oh, I’m sorry.’ And boom! [She] just fainted immediately.”

“I’ve been handed some very strange things. I’ve been given an Etch-A-Sketch, which was kind of awesome. That was a present from a fan I’d never been given before. And, I got told that I smelled good by three people last night,” Radcliffe joked.


The actor also told Billy about a certain [How to Succeed] performance one night where he incorporated a reference to Tom Cruise’s infamous couch jump on “Oprah,” after hearing that Tom’s wife – Katie Holmes – was in the audience to witness the act.

“I got very, very paranoid that night because she was in the audience and I did it and the audience reaction wasn’t nearly as much as it normally is and I was like, ‘Oh man, they all know she’s here’ and they’re like, ‘Wow, this is really awkward!’” he laughed. “But it was.”
