Daniel Radcliffe And The ‘Stranger Things’ Kids Are Actually Big Fans Of Each Other’s Work

He thinks they are better child actors than him, too.

It turns out that Daniel Radcliffe and the kids from the “Stranger Things” are big fans of each other.


Radcliffe revealed he has been watching the hit Netflix show and couldn't hold back his inner fan when he found out that Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) were appearing on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show the day after him.

On Wednesday, he made host Nick Grimshaw pass along a sweet message for the kids when they showed up on Thursday.

"Oh my god, OK, can you, like, just tell them that I think they're amazing and also just say, like, that as a person who started out acting really young, how are they so good?" he said, according to Mashable. "I wasn't that good when I was a kid. Have the decency to be less good at acting, please, when you're so young."

Coming from the man that made Harry Potter come to life on movie screens, that's a pretty bold statement. 

Brown had the same admiration.

When she heard Radcliffe's clip, she said, "He says 'I wasn't that good when I was younger' — he was Harry Potter. Let's just review … He was doing pretty fine."

We have to agree: Radcliffe did a pretty stellar job as Harry. 

Anyways, always nice to hear that fellow actors are a fan of each other’s work, both new and old. Now back to binge-watching.
