Daniel Rad­cliffe likes to shock peo­ple by ask­ing them for cig­a­rette lighters

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 27-year-old ac­tor - who shot to fame as Harry Pot­ter, the saviour of the wiz­ard­ing world, in the 'Harry Pot­ter' fran­chise - ad­mit­ted he "gets a kick out of" sur­pris­ing strangers by smok­ing. He said: "I do smoke and I like roll-ups. "I get a kick out of ask­ing peo­ple for a light - I'm al­ways los­ing lighters. "They fum­ble in their pock­ets, look up and re­alise they've com­mit­ted the crime of giv­ing Harry Pot­ter can­cer." Daniel is cur­rently dat­ing New York based ac­tress Erin Darke, 30, and says the pair have a ro­man­tic trans-At­lantic love. He ex­plained: "I live in both Lon­don and New York. My girl­friend and I hop back and forth, so we're con­stantly say­ing good­bye but look­ing for­ward to see­ing each other. It's quite a ro­man­tic state to be in." And al­though Daniel loved work­ing on the 'Harry Pot­ter' movies, he is happy to have moved on from the role of the young wizard. He said: "I'm not Harry Pot­ter any more, but I don't re­gret a day of it. I had the time of my life. "Peo­ple look at me with pity some­times. I know it's be­cause they think I didn't have a child­hood, that I was like a slave to the Pot­ter set. "But it was fun hang­ing out with Emma Wat­son and Ru­pert Grint, and the most fas­ci­nat­ing grown-ups like Alan Rick­man, Julie Wal­ters and Mag­gie Smith. "You don't meet those char­ac­ters ev­ery day and they were like fam­ily to me."
