Quote: "My character talks quite a bit about cows - there's a running joke - so I'll probably end up with a lot of stuffed cows and bells.

I haven't done that yet." Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe lists his favourite false stories about himself.

Daniel Radcliffe on the keepsakes he'll take away from the Harry Potter film franchise.
Quote: "We were all in bits. I've never seen Rupert Grint cry in my life but it was really emotional. When I saw him cry, it made me cry more.

Harry Potter star Tom Felton was baffled by rumours of raunchy naked scenes in the upcoming wizard movie - insisting his co-star Daniel Radcliffe does not strip off onscreen.

Quote: "When I'm drunk I like to cause mischief. I'll steal props like the broomsticks from the Harry Potter set and bring them out to the pub for comedy value. It seems funny at the time.

Quote: "Daniel wasn't great really when I did my kissing scene. I guess he hadn't forgotten I'd teased him when he got kissed. He was sort of standing at the back of the set trying to make me laugh. He was a little bit of a creep." Rupert Grint was unimpressed with his Harry Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe's jokey behaviour when he was filming a smooch for the movie.
