Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger.

"I can't tell how far this phenomenon stretches because I'm so in the centre of it. I can't see the edges. I'm aware of it being a phenomenon, because you can hardly not be when you disembark a plane in Japan and there are 5,000 people waiting for you. It was overwhelming for a 12 or 13 year old. But I do sometimes look back and go: God, how did I do this when I was young? How did I cope with this? But when you're 11, I suppose you have more energy.... You have to dismiss it as being ridiculous. And realise they're not there for you, they're there because you play this character. If I play another role, there won’t be 5,000 people to greet me at an airport. It's Harry more than me. And as long as you make that distinction, it's easier to cope with it." - Daniel Radcliffe
