Daniel Radcliffe aka Harry Potter, who is not on any social media platforms, spoke to Entertainment Weekly and paid tribute to his professor Dumbledore. He said the world has become less fun with the loss of Micahel Gambon.
“Michael Gambon was one of the most brilliant, effortless actors I’ve ever had the privilege of working with, but despite his immense talent, the thing I will remember most about him is how much fun he had doing his job. He was silly, irreverent and hilarious. He loved his job, but never seemed defined by it,” Radcliffe said.
