Daniel Radcliffe sent the Stranger Things cast some serious love this week on BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast Show. He’s a huge fan of the Netflix series, and complimented the cast on their outstanding performances.
“As a person who started out acting really young, how are they so good?” Radcliffe said Wednesday, September 21. “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.”
In a happy coincidence, stars Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin appeared on BBC Radio 1 the very next day, and host Nick Grimshaw relayed Radcliffe’s message to them at his request.
“Oh my god, OK, can you, like, just tell them that I think they’re amazing,” he raved.
“He [Radcliffe] says ‘I wasn’t that good when I was younger,’ — he was Harry Potter!” Brown exclaimed at Radcliffe's sweet words. “Let’s just review. He was doing pretty fine.”
Now, is it too much to ask for a Radcliffe cameo in Stranger Things Season 2?
