Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe-completely rational

It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more
~ Albus Dumbledore

You've probably heard recently that Daniel Radcliffe acknowledged that he is an atheist. So when I read this, that he also hates homophobia, in my Reader this morning; I wasn't terribly surprised. The kid's got a good head on his shoulders. I'm not a big fan of celebrity news, but I admit- I did a little dance when I read these.


  1. I agree, I was so glad to hear a young actor being open and honest and matter-of-fact about these things. What a great role model!

  2. Love and miss Albus...not sure I can bear watching #6. Joseph Campbell would have had volumes to say on the subject of HP, I am sure.

  3. Beta-exactly!

    Mo- Six will be hard, but the last movies will be worse!

  4. Well, all non-religious kids just got a cool role model :) I was not thrilled with Radcliff's performance in #4, but he improved in #5 and was pretty good in #6. I am really looking forward to the last 2 movies - they'd better do #7 justice :)
