Daniel Radcliffe on Harry Potter Horcrux theory "I feel like that one ― that’s definitely a good one.”

During the press junket for Jungle The Huffington Post brought up this Harry Potter Horcrux theory which popped up online years ago and asked Daniel if it could explain why the Dursleys were so mean to Harry.

Here's what he said:

Oh OK, so it affects the behavior of people around it,” he said. “That’s interesting, yeah.”

Radcliffe continued, “Yeah, that’s definitely the first time I’ve heard that one. It’s definitely interesting because it sort of posits a world where these people only known to be a certain way. Actually if you remove him from the situation, [they] would have been quite a nice, friendly family.”

Having been there for Richard Griffiths’ (Vernon) and Fiona Shaw’s (Petunia) performances,” Radcliffe said, “I feel like it was more they just hated having this kid around.”

“But I think that’s definitely a cool theory,” he added. “Has anyone asked Jo Rowling what she thinks of that one yet? I feel like that one ― that’s definitely a good one.”
J.K. Rowling doesn’t mention if Harry being a Horcrux contributed to the Dursleys’ hatred, but has written about the Dursley’s dislike for Harry on pottermore.com.
