Daniel Radcliffe closer to Harry Potter crew members than castmates

Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe has stayed closer to the crew members who worked on Harry Potter than any of his castmates.

The actor, now 30, shot to worldwide fame through his role as the teen wizard in the film adaptations of J.K. Rowling's books, alongside Emma Watson as Hermione Granger and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley. Fans are hopeful that the trio have remained friends since the last film was released in 2011, but in a new interview with Fox News, Daniel admitted that he's actually closer to those who worked behind the scenes on the films.

"Honestly I think that this is never the answer that people want to hear, but the people that I am actually closest to that I met on Potter are all crew members," he said. "My stunt double, David Holmes, and people from the AD department, makeup and hair, costume, particularly, I feel like those are the people that I have stayed and remained bonded with very closely. I think the rest of us are all sort of quite busy now and often in various cities and parts of the world."

Despite his remarks, Daniel added that the experience of going from an unknown school pupil to world-famous actor has bonded him, Emma and Rupert for life.

"I think there is definitely, going through something as mega and weird as that at a young age together, I think means that we all have some common experience that we'll probably never share with anyone else," he explained. "So I think that will bond us forever. But we're not living in each other's pockets sort of as much as people might want to hear. So I'm sorry if that answer disappoints anyone."
