Daniel Radcliffe reveals he had a major crush on 'Harry Potter' costar Helena Bonham Carter during filming and even wrote her a love letter
Daniel Radcliffe read an autograph he gave to Helena Bonham Carter while filming Harry Potter.
She resurfaced the autograph during the 20th anniversary special, available on HBO Max on January 1.
In it, Radcliffe said he wished he was older so he would have had a chance with her.
In an autograph from the "Harry Potter" filming days, Daniel Radcliffe told Helena Bonham Carter that he wished he was "10 years older" so that he might've had a chance to date her.
Radcliffe and Carter sat down together during the Harry Potter 20th anniversary special "Return to Hogwarts" to discuss their time together on the Harry Potter films. Radcliffe played the titular role of Harry Potter across the eight films, while Carter joined later in the franchise as Voldemort's right-hand witch Bellatrix Lestrange.
Carter said during the special that she had asked Radcliffe for an autograph during their time filming together. Presenting a photograph of it on her phone, she asked Radcliffe to read it aloud.
"Dear HBC," Radcliffe read from Carter's phone. "It was a pleasure being your co-star and coaster — wow, what a clever pun I made, honestly I'm still kind of pleased with that — in the sense that I always ended up holding your coffee."
"Then what does it say?" Carter asked, laughing.
"I do love you and I just wish I had been born 10 years earlier, I might have been in with a chance," Radcliffe read. "Lots of love and thanks for being cool."
Radcliffe was approximately 17 years old during filming for "Order of the Phoenix," the first film in which he appeared alongside Carter. She would have been approximately 40 years old during filming.
The 20th anniversary special, which premieres on HBO Max on January 1, also features appearances from fellow cast members like Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), and Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), as well directors Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuarón, Mike Newell, and David Yates.
"Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts" is available to stream on HBO Max beginning January 1.
