Dan Radcliffe talks birthday, Comic Con, crying on set in new interview

The lead actor of the Harry Potter film series spoke with The Los Angeles Times today via phone and commented on the rumors about his presence at this past week’s Comic Com:

“I apologize to all the wishful thinkers for my disappointing non-presence,” Radcliffe said Monday by phone from London.

The actor, who has finished some post-production voice work on the last “Potter” film, says he is still grappling a bit with the concept that he will never wear the robes of Hogwarts on screen again.
