Before Daniel Radcliffe stepped onstage for Live with Regis and Kelly this morning, the hosts showed a clip of his first appearance in 2001, where he was an adorable pipsqueak shaking his head in disbelief that he’d just seen The Producers. Ten years later, he’s had two successful Broadway appearances in Equus and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying – and it’s fitting that they showed that clip, since he revealed that the souvenir he nabbed from the set was two pairs of Harry’s signature glasses.
“I’ve got one from the first film, and one from the last film,” he said. They don’t have lenses, he explained, since those were the ones they used for shooting. He probably could’ve grabbed a Horcrux, a broomstick, or something flashier; but his choice really nicely acknowledges the impact of the series and its place in his life for a decade.
