Coltrane Bemused By Radcliffe's Popularity

Veteran British actor ROBBIE COLTRANE is amazed at the sudden surge of female attention his young HARRY POTTER co-star DANIEL RADCLIFFE attracts, because he had no idea the actor had turned into such a heart-throb.

Coltrane - who plays RUBEUS HAGRID in the hit franchise - was dumbfounded by the screams directed at the 15-year-old actor at the London premiere of the latest installment, HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, on Sunday night (30MAY04), because he'd failed to accept the lead star was no longer a young child.

He says, "It's like watching your own children grow up. It's so gradual, you barely notice it.

"But then one day you're at a premiere and teenage girls are throwing undergarments at them. You're going, 'Is that little Daniel?'"
