Dan Radcliffe Apologizes For Not Being at Comic-Con

In a new interview with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) the actor expressed his regret for not attending this weekend's Comic-Con:

"I apologize to all the wishful thinkers for my disappointing non-presence," Radcliffe said Monday by phone from London.
The actor, who has finished some post-production voice work on the last "Potter" film, says he is still grappling a bit with the concept that he will never wear the robes of Hogwarts on screen again. He still cares deeply about "Potter" fans, though -- he sounded genuinely distressed to hear for the first time about the wildfire rumors that led fans to believe he would be at the San Diego pop-culture expo that wrapped up on Sunday.
"Really? Oh, God, I had no idea. I suppose it's like when I'm at Reading Festival and I hear that suddenly some amazing band is going to play a surprise gig and then it turns out to be total fiction."
Later in the article he also discusses a comment Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) made at Comic-Con about how he cried on the last day of shooting:

"You know what, I'd love to libel him and call it a lie, but, darn, he's absolutely right. We all three of us -- me, Rupert and Emma -- we just wept. And I've never seen Rupert Grint cry. That was really weird."

That brings tears to my eyes as well. Their journey (aside from promotional junkets) is over and ours is soon to be over. It’s been fabulous and at least we fans can reread and rewatch. Dan is so wonderful to be concerned enough over the feelings of his fans to apologize for something he really wasn’t a part of. Love how grounded he is.

Really? Fans thought that he would cancel all his 21st plans just for another country’s Comic-Con?

Haha, I love the guy and all, but something tells me he is not sincere with his apology!

A thoughtful thing to do, apologizing for something that wasn’t his fault. All of the young HP actors have turned into incredibly gracious adults. No wonder they’re all so well loved!

Guess That Book

He had done an even worse job of dressing himself than the wizards at the World Cup. He was wearing a tea cozy for a hat, on which he had pinned a number of bright badges; a tie patterned with horseshoes over a bare chest, a pair of what looked like child
