“So far we have people from 160 countries and from all the continents on the tree,” he says. “We are really hoping to get people from every country.”
About meeting Daniel:
“Daniel Radcliffe said on a British radio show that he had read one of my books. So I wrote him a thank-you note through his publicist and begged him for an interview, which he granted. He’s a mix of Irish, Jewish, and South African. He said, ‘We’re all a mix. And I enjoy that I have this muttishness.’ He wanted to know if he’s related to a British runner named Paula Radcliffe. ‘I love running. And I’m quite fast for a short person. I was always crap at any kind of ball sports and teams, but anything that requires running, jumping, and climbing, I excel at.’'
