According to occult expert David Benoit, thats the cross the actor has to bear for playing a magician because evil spirits dont care whether a magic spell is spoken for real or as part of a role.
Of course, it doesnt help that Potter author J.K. Rowling has based many of the incantations on real folklore so its not just make-believe.
Benoit says that the fame and fortune that comes from playing Potter may look good to Radcliffe now but insists, Satan offers a good deal but theres a strict installment plan.
He fears the actor could end up being haunted by supernatural beings for the rest of his life and suffer lifelong depression and anxiety.
He hopes Radcliffe is able to overcome the potential problems because, in his words, Child actors have it tough enough as it is.
Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire opens tomorrow (Nov. 18).
