Los Angeles - Daniel Radcliffe was intimidated when he met James McAvoy.

The 26-year-old actor was never fazed when working on the Harry Potter films alongside acting greats such as Alan Rickman and Gary Oldman, but was "in awe" of his Victor Frankenstein co-star because he has always been such a fan of his work.

He said: "I was much more in awe of James than I was initially with a lot of the senior actors on Potter.

"When I first met Maggie Smith, I Was nine and did not know who Maggie Smith was! I had not seen The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. I was gloriously unintimidated by all of those people.

"But when I met James, I'd grown up watching The Last King of Scotland. Inside I'm Dancing was a huge fucking film to me and I remember being obsessed with Atonement.

"Suddenly you're working with him. That was very intimidating."

Luckily, the two actors got on very well and Radcliffe thinks his new friend gave a "phenomenal" performance in their movie.

He told Total Film magazine: "What he brings to the character is phenomenal. He's fucking extraordinary in it."
