For the past decade Daniel Radcliffe has been allergic to the glasses he wore for all the Potter films.

What does it mean for Harry Potter to be allergic to his glasses? According to Daniel Radcliffe, his signature round glasses gave him a little bit of a rash.

Today, the DVD/Blu Ray release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” has finally dropped for eager fans. Extras include an hour-long conversation between Radcliffe and J.K. Rowling, a feature focused on the female roles in the Harry Potter World, deleted scenes, a feature on the Gringotts Goblins and a demo of the newest Harry Potter Lego game for PS3.

Radcliffe revealed the startling tidbit during the conversation with Rowling.

“Eventually we realized I was allergic to them,” Radcliffe says. “I had these two rings of white heads and spots that had come up around my eyes.”

“It really is lucky we don’t believe in omens,” Radcliffe said of the event.

But Warner Brothers has also announced that after December 29, no new discs of the films will be shipped, though in 2012, they will release a premium box set editon of the films.

Watch Radcliffe discuss his allergy below:



  • Perhaps some helminthic (parasitic worm) therapy (to treat immune disorders) is in order for the H.P. star. now THAT would make for an interesting interview.

  • How odd. I had no idea that one could be allergic to glasses. Glad he wore them because they were such a great persona.

  • This was such a fantastic glimpse into JK’s and Dan’s personal views of the series one of the best things I’ve ever watched on Youtube. Thanx uberfacts for link I would have probably never known it even existed
