Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe, is supporting Eddie Izzard's bid to become London Mayor. The 51-year-old comedian is seeking the Labour nomination for Mayor of London in 2019.
Speaking to the Radio Times, Daniel Radcliffe said he was disillusioned by party politics:
"I'm not an affiliate of any party. I do vote - I think it's important. The first time I voted, I felt I had graduated as a full member of society. But politics is disillusioning; it's just bickering, it's exhausting.
"I think the next thing I'm going to get excited about is Eddie Izzard running for London mayor. He's really interesting, super-smart and brings a huge amount of integrity - something that we definitely don't have today."
Daniel Radcliffe looks set to play London 2012 boss Lord Coe in a film about his track battles with fellow athlete Steve Ovett three decades ago. The Harry Potter actor will star in 'Gold', which looks at the tense rivalry between the middle distance runners.
The competition between Ovett and Sebastian Coe is seen as one of the greatest sporting rivalries as they dominated middle distance running, setting world records and amassing medals.
'Magical,' 'mid-blowing' and 'the best first week ever' - not what you'd expect to hear from even the most keen Year 7 students. But for pupils at Queens' School in Watford it really was like none other. The children had their first assembly of secondary school on the set of Harry Potter.
Two hundred had the chance to sit at the long banquet tables where cast members including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint shot many of their famous scenes.
Students have been reflecting on their most exciting start of term yet - following in the footsteps of Harry Potter. Year 7 pupils from Queens' School in Watford had their first assembly of the school year in the Hogwarts Great Hall, on the set of Harry Potter.
The Queens' School in Watford will have their first assembly of the school year within the iconic Harry Potter film Great Hall set at Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London, marking the first time that a school assembly has taken place here since filming.
The year 7 pupils are being given the once-in-a-lifetime chance to sit at the long banquet tables in the Great Hall where cast members including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint shot many scenes.
