The 25-year-old star hit ET’s Comic-Con suite at the Hard Rock Hotel on Saturday to promote his upcoming horror film Victor Frankenstein
with co-star James McAvoy.
Both actors were required to wear "many hair extensions" for the film, which took over 14 hours to install. Radcliffe revealed how stressful the experience was, admitting that caring for faux locks was trickier than expected.
"I don't know how anyone deals with them. The stress, you have to wash them! If you don't, they get really rank,” Radcliffe lamented to ETonline. “You have to wash them in a very delicate way, because otherwise, they're all going to fall out."
McAvoy, who's currently sporting a low-maintenance buzzed ‘do thanks to his upcoming role in X-Men: Apocalypse, admitted his issues occurred mostly in the shower.
"One [hair-extension] comes out and you're like [gasp!]” he explained. “I had that a couple times."
It’s probably safe to assume Radcliffe is done with hair-extensions for life, but there is one ‘hair’ he wants around forever: Harry Potter (Get it!?).
After a decade of starring as the title character in the fantasy series, Radcliffe said the constant HP questions are never a bother.
“It’s not a problem. I don’t mind talking about it. I would be crazy if I minded.”
"It’s going to be great," Radcliffe said supportively. “I think they start filming kind of soon, but I’ll just be watching and waiting with everyone else.”
Fantastic Beasts is set seven decades in the past, sadly making it impossible to include our favorite boy wizard. Radcliffe said he’s cool not making any cameos in the new series because, after all, he did star in eight Harry Potter films.
McAvoy sarcastically chimed in, “Yeah, it’s alright. I did 50 [Harry Potter films] and it was cool.” Radcliffe agreed, “Yeah, eight was cool.”
Victor Frankenstein hits theatres Thanksgiving weekend while Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is expected November 2016.
