Daniel Radcliffe took ‘floppy’ prop from Harry Potter set and keeps it in attic

This year, Harry Potter will celebrate its 20th anniversary.

The first film in the fantasy saga, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was released at the end of 2001 – and unbeknownst to Daniel Radcliffe, it would completely change his life.

When the actors were finally finished shooting all eight of the movies, Daniel felt like he should take something from the set as a souvenir.

In an interview with BBC1 Radio, Daniel went through the props that he took to remind him of the years he spent filming.

He admits to keeping a few pairs of Harry’s iconic glasses – but it’s what he took from the set of the second movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, that’s slightly more bizarre.

Daniel said: “I’ve got a bunch of stuff from Potter. I’ve got a couple of sets of glasses.

“I’ve got actually somewhere – I don’t know where I don’t have it, it’s at my parents’ house I guess, maybe in the attic – I’ve got a prosthetic arm that was moulded for me in the scene where Harry lost all the bones in his arm. So I’ve got like a big floppy arm in my attic.”

He added: “What a weird thing for someone to find in the attic one day!”

The scene Daniel is referring to happens in the 2002 film, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, where Harry’s arm was broken during a Quidditch match.

When the Defence Against the Dark Arts professor, Gilderoy Lockhart (Kenneth Branagh), attempted to fix it, his spell went wrong, making all of the bones in Harry’s arm disappear.

But these aren’t the only strange items Daniel has kept from that time.

“I also have a mould of my face that was made when I was 10 or 11 and it looks like a death mask,” he added.
