Watch Daniel Radcliffe recall Donald Trump’s advice from when they first met

The pair were fellow guests on a US talk show when the 'Harry Potter' actor was just 11

Daniel Radcliffe has told the story of when he first met Donald Trump – and the advice that Trump offered him.

Radcliffe – best known for his lead role in the Harry Potter films – appeared on US TV’s Late Night With Seth Meyers on Monday night (June 20), recalling the time he met the billionaire-turned-politician before his first ever talk show appearance on the Today Show when he was 11 years old.

Trump was also a guest for the episode and Radcliffe explains that he was “marched” over to meet him. “I remember having some idea of who he was but not really a full concept,” Radcliffe recalled.


The young actor explained to Trump that he was nervous to appear on the show. “He just said, ‘You just tell them you met Mr. Trump. To this day, I can’t even relate to that level of confidence.”

Meanwhile, Radcliffe has revealed why he probably won’t be seeing new the new Harry Potter: Cursed Child play.
