Daniel Radcliffe: I Love Spotting Celebrities in NYC
"It's very rare that I get stopped or get asked for an autograph or anything -- none of which I mind -- but people don't really care that much. I just sort of walk by, and they say, 'Oh, hi,' and then walk on. It's pretty cool, to be honest," the Harry Potter star, 21, tells Time Out New York. "I do miss London, but if I have to spend a year somewhere else, New York is not a bad place to have to spend it."
"I saw Julianne Moore walk past me a couple of weeks ago, and we sort of smiled at each other. I don't think she knew it was me. I just think she thought it was somebody smiling at her," he says. "You do see a lot of people, and I'm as guilty of it as anybody. I get so excited when I spot people, like, 'Oh, there's Kiefer Sutherland!'"
Radcliffe, who's currently starring in Broadway's How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, looks forward to spending more time exploring NYC once he's done promoting the eighth and final Harry Potter film.
"After the next three weeks, I'm kind of in the clear, which is going to be awesome," he says. "Now I've got the Potter publicity and all of that stuff starting up again, but after that is over, I can just relax and enjoy the summer."
Not that Radcliffe minds the Harry Potter media blitz. "It's very rare in your career that you get to play an action hero. I'm not the natural frame and stature of an action hero, so I may not get to play one again," the actor says. "I will miss playing Harry, but I've played him for 10 years. That's more time than any actor gets with a character normally."
