Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he googles himself and reads Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy fanfiction in a new interview.
Harry Potter fans will no doubt already know that Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy are one of the Harry Potter franchises' most popular ships. Since the first book came out in 1997, thousands of words of fanfiction have been written about a Harry and Draco romance. From innocent stories to explicit erotica, Harry and Draco are the ultimate enemies-to-lovers fanfic ship.
Now, Daniel Radcliffe has let slip that he is pretty well-versed when it comes to Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy fanfiction.
Taking on Vanity Fair's infamous lie detector test, Daniel was asked some intense questions by his Merrily We Roll Along co-stars Jonathan Groff and Lindsay Mendes. Jonathan asked: "Do you ever Google yourself?” and Daniel said: "Yes." When Jonathan quipped, "Aw, Dan, so honest", Daniel replied: "I mean there’s no point fucking lying is there, Judd?"
Grilling Daniel further, Jonathan added: "Have you ever read fanfiction about yourself?" and Daniel confessed: "Yes, aloud on TV." Daniel then revealed even more adding: "I’m obviously aware there’s a lot of like shipping of Harry and Draco as characters together. So, I’ve read some of that."
Jonathan didn't understand what shipping is so Daniel explained: "Shipping is like when you want two characters to get together, for a relationship."
Pretty legendary if you ask me.
Speaking on AOL's In the Know in 2019, Tom Felton revealed that he has also read Harry and Draco fanfiction. He said: "I feel like I've seen some fanfics along that line. I've seen some pictures. Some alarming ones."
He then added: "Harry was constantly crushing on Draco. He just couldn't hide it."
What do you think? Was Harry secretly in love with Draco?
