James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe at the photobooth of the 2015 Empire Awards

Empire magazine: Who’s the most exciting person you’ve met tonight that you’ve never met before?

James: Daniel Radcliffe. Oh, that I haven’t met before? I had an exciting moment where somebody jumped in front of me and said, “You need to give me the contact details for your agent.” I was like, “No, I don’t, I’ve got to get to my table because we’re late!” But Daniel bouncered for me. I was like Keira Knightley and he was my ninja.

“We didn’t know what to say when we stood up here,” says McAvoy, “so I’ll just tell you what Daniel suggested, which is that we stand here and look pretty.” x
