It's been more than a decade after the Harry Potter franchise faced the emotional end, but the wizarding world of Harry Potter will always remain in our hearts. Aside from magic and the astonishing school of Hogwarts, we were introduced to the iconic trio, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and Harry Potter's adventure that lasted for 8 films.

Now, each of the prominent cast went to their own adventure outside of the Harry Potter franchise. Harry Potter lead star, Daniel Radcliffe worked on a wide range of different projects after his last Harry Potter film, Deathly Hallows Part 2, and the actor will now be starring in a new adventure film, The Lost City, together with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum. The Lost City follows Loretta (Bullock) a novelist who's been kidnapped by Fairfax (Radcliffe), and Alan (Tatum) attempts to save the woman's life just like in Loretta's books.

While promoting The Lost City, Radcliffe revealed to TooFab how playing his iconic Harry Potter character used to embarrass him. Radcliffe explained, "I think, honestly when I was on Harry Potter and dressed as a schoolboy, it didn't feel like the coolest thing in the world at the time." He follows up by saying, "It's been, honestly, later that I've looked back and gone, 'That was incredibly cool,' and I do feel that now, for sure."

Though Daniel Radcliffe's comment about his Harry Potter role might have shocked the fans, it's understandable given that the actor was only 12 years old when filming the first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. We witnessed how Daniel Radcliffe developed through puberty while filming the entire Harry Potter series and it totally makes sense how dressing in a long robe and uniform can feel embarrassing at that time for a teenage boy.

Thankfully, the actor still committed to the role at such a young age, giving us a perfect portrayal of 'the boy who lived.' Harry Potter was such an enormous part of our childhood, and this recent revelation from Radcliffe won't do much for the die-hard fans.
