Daniel Radcliffe Fanboyed Out Over The 'Stranger Things' Kids (Just Like You Would If You Met Them)
It seems like everyone, including celebrities, are obsessed with the young stars of Stranger Things, aka Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp. Even former child stars are not immune: Harry potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, and the Stranger Things kids are fans of each other, apparently. In an interview on BBC Radio 1 on Wednesday, Radcliffe got all excited (and humble) when the host revealed that the kids would be on the next day's show. Radcliffe gushed:
Oh my God. Okay, 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? 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 Thursday's interview with the Netflix show's young cast, host Nick Grimshaw played them the clip, and they were understandably excited to find out that Harry Potter was a fan of theirs. However, Millie Bobby Brown thought he was a little hard on himself. "He was Harry Potter," she said. "I think he was doing pretty fine.” Understandably, Radcliffe is not alone in his affection and admiration for the young actors. These are the other celebs who are unofficial members of the Stranger Things kids fan club.
