radcliffe adds magic to premiere

The red carpet will be rolled out at Cineworld this Friday for the VIP premiere of Daniel Radcliffe's new movie.

And given that the pint-sized Harry Potter star will be in attendance, tickets to see the Irish screening of What If are like gold dust.

It will be a flying visit for the popular actor though. He's going to fly in on the morning of the film event and fly out after the screening.

But not before he pays a visit to RTE's TV studio, where he has an audience with Miriam O'Callaghan. He's going to pre-record an interview for her Saturday night show.

Co-starring Zoe Kazan, the movie was filmed partly in Ireland back in 2012, when the original title was The F Word, but had to be changed due to objections in America.

The flick was shot mainly in Canada's Ontario, but finished in Ireland. Radcliffe's first ever romantic comedy, it tells the story of two friends whose feelings gradually develop.

All the usual social suspects have been invited to attend the premiere, with rumours that Devon Murray and Evanna Lynch could be having a reunion with Radcliffe at the invite-only event this weekend.
