Say it ain't so, Daniel Radcliffe! In an interview with the website Moviefone to promote his upcoming film The Woman in Black, the actor who played Harry Potter, known to Star Wars fans as "the other Chosen One," admitted that he still hasn't seen the Star Wars Original Trilogy, and that he's only seen the first part of the Prequel Trilogy.
So not any of the six movies? I saw 'The Phantom Menace,' and everyone's like, "You saw that one! You didn't see the originals?!" I know! I was ten! I didn't know any better!
Fear not, however, as he says that a friend is getting him the Blu-ray set. He also said the following about the frequent comparisons that people make between his major franchise and Star Wars:
"[A]ny kind of a franchise where a world is created will then engender a generation of nerds. Fantastic! Nerds are the best things in the world. I think of myself as a nerd. What was the Bill Gates thing? "Be nice to nerds, you'll probably be working for them one day." But I think the difference is because 'Potter' started out as a book, it's created a generation of literary nerds in a way that 'Star Wars' perhaps didn't. But, basically, it's all the same. I mean, I do think of 'Potter' as being this generation's 'Star Wars.' It's something that an entire generation as lost themselves in and it's a meticulously created, detailed world. So I do think that's the closest thing to compare it to."
