Daniel Radcliffe's embarrassing selfie moment

Daniel Radcliffe's embarrassing selfie moment

Daniel Radcliffe wanted to "crawl into a hole" when he mistakenly thought a fan was asking for a photo with him.

The 'Harry Potter' star - who starred in the fantasy franchise for 10 years - was left red faced a decade ago when he thought a girl was asking him for a selfie when she actually just wanted to move past him and get out of the crowd after a play.

Speaking to Chris Moyles on Radio X, he explained: "I had one of the most awful, embarrassing moments, one of those when you just want to crawl in a hole.

"I'd been to see a play, it was a very crowded bar and my friend was standing at the bar and I'd just been talking to him and I was working my way out through the crowd.

"And as I was working my way out through the crowd, I came face to face, very close to this girl who started making a face and going, 'Oh, oh would you mind? Would it be possible if?' and I was like, "I'm really, really sorry, I'm just on my way out right now." She just went, 'No, I'm just trying to get past you'. I was like, 'Oh God.' I was 17. I thought I won't make that mistake again."

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old actor has been the hot topic of conversation recently as it's believed plans are being made to create a new 'Harry Potter' film.

But, although Daniel is the hot favourite to reprise his role as the titular character, he has admitted a lot of things will need to line up before he'll agree to take on the part once again.

He said: "It would depend on the script. The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo [in 'Star Wars'] and look what happened there! So I am saying 'No' for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future."
