Daniel’s performance in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying convinced many critics that the young actor should be nominated for a Tony Award.
However, when the nominations were announced, Daniel was mysteriously left out.
Does that make the Harry Potter star bitter about the snub?
“The thing that shocked me was everybody else’s reaction…and how they started treating me — because it was like I lost a relative,” he explained. “In my opinion, it was sweet, but over the top. People would ask me, ‘Are you Ok?’”
“I think I speak for 99 per cent of actors when I say that the reason we do this job…while it’s lovely to get recognised by your peers, it’s not the reason why we do it. The people that do this job for awards and recognition are kind of worshipping at the wrong altar, and I’m not really quite sure if I want to know those people.”
