The reason Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe ‘Dislike’ one particular film in the series

The Harry Potter film franchise is one of the most popular series in movie history having made hundreds of millions at the box office worldwide.

Despite all this success though there are always some who don’t like the films for various reasons, which is to be expected of course.

What you may not expect though is the series’ biggest star to admit that he ‘hates’ one of the films, but that’s exactly what Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the role of Harry Potter himself, has done.

Daniel, 32, has spoken many times about his admiration for the books by J.K. Rowling the films are based on though, and there can be no doubt that he is a fan of the series as a whole and his role in it.

In an episode of Off Camera With Sam Jones in 2019, he said: “There was never a point where I was like, oh I wish this hadn’t happened to me, I wish I wasn’t Harry Potter.”

So why does Daniel dislike one of the movies so much?

Well, it comes down to his own high standards and self critical eye for his work.

Back in 2011 he went into a bit more detail about why this was, speaking to GamesRadar: “The Half-Blood Prince wasn’t my favourite installment overall…

“I just hated my performance.

“The film was good, but it’s a huge amount of exposition. I think it’s the most beautiful of all the chapters… but [it’s] basically about setting up number seven.

“I just wasn’t very happy with number six in terms of my own performance.”

He then raised the issue again with the Daily Mail in 2014, saying:

“It’s hard to watch a film like Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, because I’m just not very good in it. I hate it.

“My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across. My best film is the fifth one (Order Of The Phoenix) because I can see a progression.”

It seems though the critiques of his performance were only from Daniel himself, the film receiving wide praise and popularity among fans.

On the topic of J.K. Rowling’s thoughts on the performance in the 2011 interview Daniel even admits: “To my knowledge she was always very happy with the way I played him, but it’s my job to be critical.”
