Although he acknowledges that winning the role of the boy wizard was the movie equivalent of winning a Willy Wonka golden ticket to fame and fortune, there were many times Radcliffe could barely watch himself on screen.
In an interview with FHM, he hinted that both he and Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter, had tried to win favour with Granger, but declined to comment on which of the two was more enamoured with her. The 20-year-old, who suffers from severe arachnophobia, also spoke about the more "terrifying" aspects of fame.
