An audience member asked about what the funniest moment on set was, and Radcliffe deadpanned, “What’s the funniest thing that’s happened to me in the past 10 years?” One moment, though, that stood out to him was his “Henry V” speech to Dumbledore’s Army in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. He shared that he would wear shoes with blue covers on them so not to mark up the floor. During one take, while delivering the big rousing speech, Radcliffe looked down and realized he had put his shoes on the wrong feet. “Patton would not have done well if his shoes were on the wrong feet,” he laughed.
When it came time to talk about worst moments on set, Radcliffe was quick to respond “Quidditch,” explaining that riding a broom is much more painful than it looks. In terms of best, he shared, “It’s impossible to pick. This is my life. I see a scene, it’s a moment from my life. I had a blast on these films.”

The best part of the chat for the audience? To the surprise of no one who’s checked out any of his interviews over the years, Radcliffe brought the charming awkwardness that’s endeared him to so many, laughing constantly throughout the chat. He also got genuinely personal: “The day we finished [filming], I cried and cried,” Radcliffe said. “In that moment, when the thing you’ve been doing for 10 years ends; I just thought, ‘What am I going to do now?’ … I had a moment the other day where I was feeling very nostalgic for it.”
