Daniel Radcliffe names his favourite Harry Potter film

Everyone has a favourite Harry Potter film – even Daniel Radcliffe.

The actor, who played the boy wizard across seven films, revealed his film of choice while taking part in WIRED‘s “Autcomplete Interview” series, which sees celebrities answer the internet’s most searched questions about themselves.

Naturally, the first question that appears when he types his name into a search engine is: “What is Daniel Radcliffe’s favourite Harry Potter?” It turns out, he has an immediate go-to.

Aside from the final instalment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Radcliffe revealed that his favourite was actually Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

“I love the last one, but I also really love the fifth, which is not a lot of people’s favourite, I kind of realise,” he said.

“I love it because of the relationship between Harry and Sirius [Black], and you get a lot of Gary Oldman in that movie.”

He continued: “That was my favourite one. Probably to film as well. We had a really, really good time making that one. [So], five or seven, part two.”
