Daniel Radcliffe is best known of Harry Potter, after starring in the series of films based on the novels by J.K. Rowling.
Playing a wizard in the movies, he’s still shown to have the magic touch, and that immense fame hasn’t stopped the 27-year-old from being a normal kind-hearted bloke, by coming to the aid of a tourist who was mugged by men on a scooter.
While in west London last Friday night the star and other passers-by stopped to help the man who was bleeding, reports EveningStandard, after being slashed on the face by the muggers.
According to police, two men targeted the victim. “The victim — a man aged in his 50s — was walking along the road when two people riding a moped snatched his bag before riding off,” police said in a statement. “The victim suffered a cut to the face during the incident.”

Because it was a police matter Radcliffe’s representatives confirmed he was there but declined to comment further on the incident although a former police officer, David Videcette, told The Evening Standard he witnessed Radcliffe comforting the tourist.
Speaking to the news station Videcette said it was a surreal moment when he said ‘You’re Daniel Radcliffe’ and he replied ‘I am’. “He was a really nice bloke; a lot of stars wouldn’t have stopped to help.” Videcette said he also saw the thieves, on a moped with no number plates, carrying a knife and called police.
So impressed he took to social media to thank the star.
Do you think this shows his true character, or is it something everyone would do?
