DANIEL RADCLIFFE CHANGES NAME TO HARRY POTTER
HOLLYWOOD – In a surprising move, actor Daniel Radcliffe has changed his name by deed poll to Harry Potter.
The diminutive ex-Hogwarts actor spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec:
For years, I’ve been fighting against typecasting and trying to escape the shadow of my most famous role. But now I’ve come to realize everyone just thinks of me as Harry Potter, whether I’m blinding horses in Equus or writing beat poetry and having gay sex in Kill Your Darlings, people just keep saying why is Harry Potter blinding horse, why is Harry Potter writing Beat poetry and having gay sex. I spoke to my therapist and she said why don’t you just run with it, so that’s what I’ve decided to do. From now on I will be Harry Potter.
Does this mean there might be a chance you will return to play Harry Potter?
No absolutely not. I’m totally done with that character.
But now you’re called Harry Potter…
Well, exactly. You see? Can you imagine Harry Potter is Harry Potter? It wouldn’t work. It’d be a nonsense. And so there we have it.
Ah, I see. Well thank you, Harry.
Mnnnnnn. Okay. Yes. Harry Potter. Yes.
