Washington D.C. [USA], Oct.01 (ANI): 'Harry Potter' star, Daniel Radcliffe recently shared a funny anecdote of his first meeting with the present American presidential candidate over ten years ago.

During an appearance on the premiere of British comedy chat show, 'The Graham Norton Show,' the 27-year-old actor recalled his first meeting with the businessman at a press run for 'Harry Potter' where Trump decided to offer a young Radcliffe some tips to ease his nerves, reports E! Online.

"I was like 11 or 12 and it was when we were doing press for the first Potter movie, and they took us to New York and it was sort of the first time doing any of the morning shows in New York," Radcliffe began.

".I was about to do the Today Show and I'd never been American morning TV before, and I was quite nervous," he continued, " Donald Trump had also been on that day. They walked me over to him because clearly they were like, somebody must have said, 'Hey, you wanna meet the kid who plays Harry Potter?' and he's like 'Sure!' I don't know how that conversation went."

The people in charge apparently walked him over to the politician and after a short exchange of hi's and hello's, the pre-teen Radcliffe confided that he was "quite nervous" as he had never been on TV before.

What follows was a brilliant and as usual, confidence-oozing reply from Trump.

"'You tell them you just met Mr. Trump.'"

To the child star that definitely must have been "the Everest of self-confidence."

"Imagine if I'd just been to you, 'When you go on that show, just talk about me. Don't talk about your stuff,'" the 'Swiss Army Man' actor added. (ANI)
