Daniel Radcliffe Addresses the Broken Wand Rumor While Answering the Web’s Most-Searched Questions

WIRED brought in Daniel Radcliffe, one of our favorite wizards, to answer some of the Web’s most-searched questions in a new Autocomplete Interview. However, this wasn’t the first time the Boy Who Lived participated in the segment.

Daniel first appeared on a WIRED Autocomplete Interview in 2019. He started both interviews off with his thoughts on how weird it is to watch himself as a kid on-screen. The first question he uncovered was about Harry Potter, of course. He discussed his favorite film to watch of the series and what his favorite one was to film. From talking about his age to what his accent is, the first few questions were what most of us would imagine is being searched online about him.

The questions then drifted to Daniel’s celebrity look-alike, Elijah Wood, who starred in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. We admit the stars do have some similar features, but most Potter fans can definitely spot who’s who.

This video truly has it all, and some questions were very unexpected – yes, Daniel talks about that scene in Miracle Workers that had the Internet buzzing for weeks about his stellar dance moves and outfit. We know you’re ready to check out the video too, so here it is with all the funny, unexpected, and general questions from the Web regarding Daniel Radcliffe.



From simple questions to the ones that require some deep thinking, it’s always thrilling to see this side of the actors that we’ve watched on-screen so many times. We’re all glad to finally know the truth of how many wands were broken on the set of Harry Potter. Did you learn anything new about Daniel in this video?
