If there is one thing Donald Trump does not lack, it is confidence. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s impermeable self-assurance knows no bounds.
Speaking on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday night, Radcliffe relayed the advice the mogul-turned-politico imparted to him while he waited to go on air on The Today Show a decade and a half ago.
“I was really nervous, 11-years-old, had never been on live TV before and was terrified," Radcliffe said.
"[Trump] was a guest on it, and presumably, somebody went up to him and was like, 'you wanna meet the kid that plays Harry Potter?' … I remember having some idea of who he was but not really a full concept.”
When Radcliffe told Mr Trump he was nervous about his upcoming interview, he apparently responded: “You just tell them you met Mr Trump.”
“To this day, I can’t even imagine that level of confidence,” Radcliffe said, attempting to adopt the mindset of Mr Trump and quipping ”I am interesting enough to be everyone's story.“
“How weirded out would [the audience] be? 'That British kid really loves Trump. He's really into real estate’,” Radcliffe added.
