Daniel Radcliffe tried being a receptionist and crumbled under the pressure, calling the role "the hardest thing I've ever done"

Staff at fashion magazine Nylon had no idea that real life Harry Potter stepped in as their receptionist last week!

Reactions ranged from boldly asking for a selfie, to open mouthed astonishment. Some visitors to the reception desk were totally oblivious a big time actor was sitting in front of them. Where have they been?!

With no idea where the all important stamps were kept and an inability to transfer calls, the Harry Potter star quickly discovered a day (or hour) in the office is no walk in the park.

Dan informed confused passers by he was "preparing for my next role, and it's proving to be the hardest thing I've ever done." Yep, apparently fighting off Voldemort was easy in comparison.

In a very showbiz twist, Joe Jonas even stopped by the desk and pointed out "this new guy sucks!"

Speaking about the unusual experience one member of staff said: "I looked around and I saw a lot of smiling, blushed faces. They had all "happened" to walk by the lobby. And while some of them engaged with the actor, some of them chose to play it cool and freak out later."

Here at Reveal we also like to give stars of the big screen a healthy dose of reality. Ted of Ted and Ted 2 fame had a blast during his work experience with us last week. He was slightly less chatty than Daniel though...
