Daniel Radcliffe assigned ex-SAS bodyguards after death threats
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been assigned ex-SAS bodyguards to protect him after receiving death threats from a stalker.
The 18-year-olds every move is being watched while filming for the sixth movie in the Potter series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
The exact nature of the threat is unclear, but Warner Bros studios are certainly taking it seriously. Radcliffe has had to switch cars three times, has been allocated a chase car to follow his own vehicle, and his driver of seven years seen as part of the family has been told to stand down temporarily.
One studio insider confirmed: There is real concern for Daniel’s welfare. This isn’t about keeping an eye out for paparazzi – they’re looking for something sinister.
