Daniel Radcliffe’s Thoughts on Rejecting J.K. Rowling’s Views

Radcliffe Emphasizes J.K. Rowling’s Views Are Not Representative of the Harry Potter Cast.

The Harry Potter franchise, while still immensely popular and successful, has faced controversy due to the viewpoints expressed by its creator, J.K. Rowling. Rowling has been vocal in her criticisms of the LGBTQ+ community, especially transgender individuals. In 2020, Daniel Radcliffe, known for his role as Harry Potter, penned a public letter condemning Rowling’s views and voicing his support for the LGBTQ+ community.

!function(n){if(!window.cnxps){window.cnxps={},window.cnxps.cmd=[];var t=n.createElement(‘iframe’);t.display=’none’,t.onload=function(){var n=t.contentWindow.document,c=n.createElement(‘script’);c.src=”https://cd.connatix.com/connatix.playspace.js”,c.setAttribute(‘async’,’1′),c.setAttribute(‘type’,’text/javascript’),n.body.appendChild(c)},n.head.appendChild(t)}}(document);

cnxps.cmd.push(function () {
cnxps({
playerId: getUrsCtxStoryPlayer() ,”customParam1″:getUrsPI(),”customParam2″:getUrsSTI(),”customParam3″:”ConnatixMain”,settings: {queryJsTargeting:{apsTargetingKey:getUrsTI().split(‘_’).slice(0,1).join(‘_’).toLowerCase()},advertising: {macros: {“CustomMacro1″:getUrsPI(),”CustomMacro2″:getUrsSTI(),”CustomMacro3″:”ConnatixMain”}}}
}).render(‘307852102563439fa7d193066a4208a5’,connatix_js_ready_callback);
});

In a recent interview with IndieWire, Radcliffe revisited his letter, underscoring the need to differentiate between Rowling’s views and those of himself and the Harry Potter cast.

Radcliffe shared, “The reason I felt compelled to speak out when I did was because, especially since finishing ‘Potter,’ I’ve encountered many queer and trans youth who deeply identified with the series. Witnessing their distress, I wanted to assure them that not everyone in the franchise shared those beliefs. That was crucial,”

Radcliffe has long been a supporter of LGBTQ+ charity The Trevor Project and felt it was necessary to clarify his stance to continue supporting them with a clear conscience. “It was truly important as I have been involved with the Trevor Project for over a decade, and I don’t think I could have faced myself if I had stayed silent,” he expressed.
