The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow leading man enjoyed a wild night on the town in St Petersburg
2010 is set to be a monumental year for Daniel Radcliffe – after recently wrapping Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the actor turned 21-years-old this week, and so had plenty of reasons to celebrate.
And celebrate he did….!
Radcliffe was spotted partying the night away until 4am at a St Petersburg club, necking vodka shots and joking with bar staff.
A fellow attendee at the 48 Chairs club told The Sun: ‘We were stunned when we realised it was Harry Potter. He was just fab. He enjoyed himself so much. He was laughing like a hyena all night.’
Radcliffe was in Russia for a holiday with two friends, but while he was off enjoying himself, thousands of Harry Potter fans were left disappointed, as the trip meant he missed an appearance at Comic-Con 2010.
He later apologised, telling the LA Times: ‘I apologise to all the wishful thinkers for my disappointing non-presence.’
Admitting he missed the break due to his birthday, he confessed he didn’t know that fans were expecting him to be present: ‘Oh, God, I had no idea. I suppose it’s like when I’m at Reading 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.’
As for the trip, he added: ‘It was fantastic. I was in St. Petersburg 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.’
Happy birthday Daniel!
