Radcliffe may have put his boy wizards behind him with roles in ‘The Woman in Black’ and the upcoming ‘Kill Your Darlings’, but his fans have not forgotten. At this weekend’s Venice Film Festival, hoards of screaming fans stormed across the barricades at the 24-year-old’s premiere, forcing bodyguards and police officers to come to his rescue.

After safely entering the building, Radcliffe admitted that these scenarios didn’t particularly bother him. At the press conference for ‘Kill Your Darlings’, the critically lauded film that sees Radcliffe starring as beat poet, Allen Ginsberg, he explains that this fan display is thankfully atypical.

"Thankfully, it's not always like this," he began.

"I've been dealing with it in various ways since I was 11. I don't take it seriously, actually I think it's funny," Radcliffe continued.

Radcliffe instead focuses on his current and upcoming theatre and film roles, and is grateful that his fans are joining him for the ride.

"I'm incredibly grateful for the swirl of support behind me," he said. "My fans seem to be excited by the unconventional path I am taking."

Radcliffe is set to visit Toronto shortly for TIFF where he is promoting three films: ‘The F Word’, ‘Horns’, and ‘Kill Your Darlings’.
