Aniel Radcliffe has said she felt it was “really important” to speak out earlier in response to JK Rowling’s alleged anti-trans remarks.

The Harry Potter author drew widespread criticism in June 2020 following a series of tweets in which critics accused her of being transphobic.

Rowling strongly denied the accusations.

“I want them to know that not everyone in the franchise feels that way,” Radcliffe said after meeting with members of the LGBT+ community.

In a recent interview with online publication IndieWire, the 33-year-old actor said the series’ many young, queer, and transgender fans were “hurt that day.”

“The reason I felt like I needed to say something was because, especially since I finished reading Potter, the many queer and trans kids and young people with whom I identified with a huge amount of because I met the ,” he said.

“And seeing them hurt that day, I wanted them to know that not everyone in the franchise feels that way.

“And it was really important.”

I don’t think I could have looked in the mirror if I hadn’t said anything.

In her first tweet, Rowling challenged an online article headline discussing “menstruating people,” writing: somebody help. Umben? Winpad? Umad? ”

Radcliffe, who became a global star for her portrayal of a schoolboy wizard, commented at the time, “Transgender women are women.”

The actor released a statement through The Trevor Project, an LGBT+ suicide prevention charity, saying Rowling said, “I was definitely responsible for the path my life took…as a human being, I had to say something at this moment.” I feel compelled,” he said.

“Having worked with the Trevor Project for over 10 years, it was really important. I don’t think I could have looked myself in the mirror if I hadn’t said anything,” he told IndieWire. .

Following the ensuing controversy sparked by her comments, Rowling was motivated to speak out on transgender issues because of her experience with domestic abuse and sexual assault.

She also said she has since received threats from “hundreds of transgender activists.” This has been condemned by the British government.

Earlier this year, the author appeared in the 20th annual Harry Potter reunion special, but only in archival video clips.

The HBO Max special, Return to Hogwarts, reunited Radcliffe and fellow castmates Rupert Grint and Emma Watson for the 20th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
