Daniel Radcliffe and G!

Do you believe in magic?  I do!  Actor Daniel Radcliffe is currently starring on Broadway in “How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”  Though he is beyond mobbed when he leaves the theatre each night, Daniel Radcliffe does his very best to accommodate fans who’ve waited for hours (sometimes days) to catch a glimpse of one of the biggest stars in the world.  I love the Harry Potter books and movies so much, the other day, I couldn’t help myself and I went to sneak a peak.  Seeing Daniel Radcliffe literally engulfed by screaming fans is one of the craziest sights I’ve ever seen, and to those who read this site daily, you know I see a lot of insane stuff!

I think up until this point, meeting Lady Gaga in a sea of fans was one of the nuttiest experiences I’ve had.  I can’t really explain it, but there is something so cool about seeing Daniel Radcliffe do his best to talk to fans and sign autographs even though he is utterly mobbed.  I’ve had a lot of respect for him already for so many reasons – he’s a great actor (in addition to the Harry Potter franchise, he’s amazing on Broadway in “Equus” and now “How To Succeed In Business…”), he’s accomplished so many great things before age 21 and last but not least – he is Harry Potter (for crying out loud!)

I was able to pull off a very difficult task of getting a photo with Daniel Radcliffe and I am very grateful for this experience which I’ll never forget.  To those people from around the world that stood with me through a freak New York summer rainstorm (that lasted for well over an hour), I know July 26, 2011 is a day they’ll not be forgetting any time soon either.  Thanks again Daniel.  I have so much respect for you for keeping your cool in these situations and for being VERY cool.  All I can say is that meeting you is truly magical.
