We’re glad you’re still on the right track!
One aspect of his personal life that’s come to light in the past few years has been Daniel’s drinking problem.
Well now that the young star is trying to move on, he’s more open to talking about what he went through.
On Wednesday’s episode of Marc Maron‘s WTF podcast, the British actor revealed he had a hard time coping after the Harry Potter films ended and admitted:
“I was living alone, and I think I was really freaked out. I drank a lot.”
Daniel went on to explain:
“I think it was more to do with going out in public and having a battle within me of thinking no, I can have a totally normal life. You get bored of waking up feeling like that.”
Luckily Radcliffe was able to recognize his problems and tackle them head on and has been sober since 2013! His decision was definitely a smart one for his career as it has allowed him to continue to be offered parts in other films!
The Woman in Black star said of his career since Potter:
“I was very lucky that people gave me opportunities directly after Potter finished to play more grown-up stuff, because I could have been getting teen offer type stuff.”
