Now that the Harry Potter films have officially wrapped, Daniel Radcliffe is spilling a little secret about his time as ‘Harry Potter’…he occasionally showed up to work drunk although did not drink while at work! Daniel also says he quit drinking in 2010 after admitting he had a problem.

‘I went into work still drunk. I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes. I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem.’

‘People with problems like that are very adept at hiding it. It was bad. I drank a lot and it was … nightly.’

In a previous interview with ShortList magazine, Radcliffe, who gave up alcohol in August 2010, said that his addition to alcohol was so bad at one point that he used to black out every time he had a drink.

He said: ‘Seriously, in the last three years of drinking I blacked out nearly every time. Blacking out was my thing.’

The actor added: ‘The drinking was unhealthy and damaging to my body and my social life. That’s beyond question.

‘I was living in constant fear of who I’d meet, what I might have said to them, what I might have done with them, so I’d stay in my apartment for days and drink alone.’
