Daniel Radcliffe's Harry Potter U-turn

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed his mum and dad initially turned down the role for him because they feared the amount of time he'd have to spend in Hollywood would affect his schooling.

Filmmakers originally planned to film the blockbuster movies State-side but after he'd been picked to play the role and his parents aired their concerns they decided to do the majority of filming in England.

After this, his parents relented and Daniel was free to play the 'the chosen one', becoming a multi-millionaire and one of the world's most recognisable actors in the process.
