At a glance

  • When Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling decided to double and triple down on her transphobic comments on Twitter, Daniel Radcliffe, alongside other cast members, condemned her beliefs almost immediately.
  • Now two years later, Radcliffe talks about revisiting Rowling’s comments and how at the time he wanted to reassure fans, especially gender non-confirming and transgender fans, that their favorite character, Harry Potter, isn’t a transphobe.
  • In a recent interview with IndieWire, Radcliffe shared why he felt compelled to write an open letter with the Trevor Project about Rowling’s transphobic tweets in 2020.
