We'd be excited, too.

If Harry Potter himself freaks out in your presence, you have to know you’re a pretty big deal. 

Harry, also known in real life as actor Daniel Radcliffe, recently visited Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 morning show and, upon hearing that the kids from “Stranger Things” would be on the next day, totally lost it.

“Oh my god. OK, can you, like, just tell them that I think they’re amazing and also just say, like, that as a person who started out acting really young, how are they so good?” Radcliffe asked the radio host. “I wasn’t that good when I was a kid. Have the decency to be less good at acting, please, when you’re so young.”

When Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin stopped by “The Breakfast Show” the next day, Grimshaw inquired about the trio’s many celebrity fans ― among them the cast of “Game of Thrones” and “Modern Family.” (Not too shabby!) They were happy about that, but all three freaked out when they heard Radcliffe’s message.

“He said ‘I wasn’t very good when I was younger’ ― he was Harry Potter!” Brown said. “Let’s just review ... I think he was doing pretty fine.”
