Actor Daniel Radcliffe is a fan of seven-time PDC major winner James Wade, it was revealed this week.

The 23-year-old, who rose to super-stardom playing the title role in the Harry Potter film series, may have been a top ‘Quidditch’ player on screen but Radcliffe is actually a huge fan of darts.

And, though you might expect his favourite player to be ‘The Wizard’ Simon Whitlock, the esteemed film star is a secretly a fan of ‘The Machine’.

Radcliffe’s passion for darts and support for Wade was revealed by Irish pop group The Duckworth Lewis Method in a BBC Radio 2 interview.

Band members Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh, who have worked with Radcliffe, mentioned on Monday’s Drivetime Show to host Simon Mayo that: “We worked with Stephen Fry, who is a big fan of darts. Incidentally, Daniel is a big fan of darts too. He is a James Wade fan.”

Wade welcomed the support of the film star, saying: “It is always nice to learn that someone of his profile and status appreciates what you do and he would be more welcome to attend a tournament as my guest.”
