'Harry Potter' director Chris Columbus also turned out to watch Radcliffe's play 'Privacy'
Daniel Radcliffe has enjoyed a reunion with one of his Harry Potter co-stars after a performance of his new off-Broadway play.
The actor is currently starring in Privacy at New York City’s Public Theater. A new play by British writer James Graham, it questions the amount of personal information we give away to companies and governments whenever we surf the web.
After last night’s performance, Radcliffe was joined by Bonnie Wright, who played Ron Weasley’s sister Ginny in the film series based on J.K. Rowling’s novels, and by Chris Columbus, who directed the first two movies, Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets.
Sharing a picture of the Harry Potter trio on Twitter, Wright wrote: “Reunion! Congrats Dan on another stellar performance. Google is terrifying and I’m now scared to use my phone. Can say no more. Go see Privacy!”
Meanwhile, a recent study by a professor at the University of Pennsylvania has found that reading the Harry Potter novels may cause Americans to form a lower opinion of Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s nominee for President.
“It may simply be too difficult for Harry Potter readers to ignore the similarities between Trump and the power-hungry Voldemort,” Professor Diana Mutz writes in her study, which is set to be published in a special 2016 election issue of an academic journal called PS: Political Science and Politics.
