“As an English person, he was one of those people that I heard talked about growing up — and you’d be like, ‘Oh, I want people to talk about me that way one day.’ That is the Everest of my own personal aspiration. That would be the greatest compliment that I can think of, because he’s kind of universally adored as a person and as a professional … Still going, and still loves it.”

The actor noticed the reputation that Caine had and knew that when it came time for him to be known as a veteran actor, he wanted a similar reputation to that of The Dark Knight actor. He was in awe of the actor and how Caine was interacting with everyone else, something he wanted to implement in his own career as well.

Daniel Radcliffe Thought Michael Caine Was Different From Other Actors

Daniel Radcliffe saw a completely different side of how actors can be when he was working with Michael Caine. The environment that the actor had set was completely different from what he was used to. As a renowned actor, he was still mixing well with the crowd with a rather welcoming persona.

“He’s not one of these older actors — and there are a lot of them — that come on like, ‘Okay, let’s just do it and get it done and I’ll go.’ He’s having fun, he’s having a laugh, he’s having a joke, he’s catching up with a friend. It’s really inspirational.”

On previous occasions, Radcliffe has been influenced by other actors as well, such as Gary Oldman. Oldman managed to teach something new to the actor throughout his time in the Harry Potter franchise. Similarly, Caine had a massive influence on the actor as well.
