Daniel Radcliffe Was Legitimately Afraid of Ralph Fiennes While Filming HARRY POTTER
It would appear Harry Potter was a bit braver in facing Voldemort than Daniel Radcliffe. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Radcliffe reveals he was actually scared to interact with Ralph Fiennes (who played Voldemort) when they worked together on the set of the Harry Potter films The actor recounted the experience in the statement below:.
I remember when I was 15 doing scenes with Ralph for the first time. He was even scarier than Alan was at first...Alan was super intimidating to start off with as well, but then you get into it, but Ralph genuinely scared me for a few years.
I remember when they first revealed Voldemort in his resurrected form...it creeped me out. I would also believe that Alan Rickman would be scary to work with in character, but I've seen some behind the scenes footage where he was really good with the kids and would constantly tease and pal around with them. Maybe Ralph wasn't so cool when the camera stopped rolling?
