Daniel Radcliffe apologizes to disappointed Comic-Con Harry Potter fansJuly 28th, 2010 - 6:35 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 28 (ANI): Actor Daniel Radcliffe has apologized to disappointed fans, who camped out at Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California, in the hopes of seeing him.
Thousands of Harry Potter devotees descended on the comic book convention and queued for hours to ensure they were first in line to catch the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows panel discussion.
But fans were left disappointed when Radcliffe, 21, and his co-stars Rupert Grint and Emma Watson did not turn up.
Radcliffe said he understands why fans, who took to the Internet to complain about his no-show, are unhappy but he insists he was never billed to appear at Comic-Con.
“I apologise to all the wishful thinkers for my disappointing non-presence,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling the Los Angeles Times.
“I suppose it’s like when I’m at (a music festival), and I hear that suddenly some amazing band is going to play a surprise gig and then it turns out to be total fiction.
“I was in St. Petersburg (Russia) for my birthday, which is probably the most beautiful, the most incredible, wonderful place I’ve ever been in my life.
“It really is absolutely amazing. I went with two friends and it was brilliant,” he added. (ANI)
