As his teenage wizard alter-ego Harry Potter, there was rarely a situation Daniel Radcliffe couldn’t fix with a bit of magic.
So the 23-year-old actor must have been wishing he had his wand to hand as he attended a friend’s wedding in London on Friday.
Daniel found himself dwarfed by a rather statuesque female friend as he greeted guests at the ceremony, held in Chelsea.

The 5ft 5in tall star, who wore a grey suit for the nuptials, appeared significantly shorter than the young woman, who wore short kitten-heeled shoes for the occasion, as he headed into the venue.
A male member of the bridal party was also seen towering over the petite actor.
However, Daniel appeared less than concerned about the almost comical height difference, exchanging words with the pair before heading on his way.

Later, Daniel, who grew up in the neighbouring district of Fulham, was seen slipping outside the venue during the reception for a few cigarettes.
Sitting outside during his fag break, Daniel enjoyed a chat with two female wedding guests.
While his smoking companions sipped champagne, Daniel stuck to a water as he has been teetotal since 2010.

Daniel is currently back home in London rehearsing for his new West End show.
He will take on the leading role as a young man with degenerative muscle disease in Martin McDonagh’s play The Cripple of Inishmaan.
He told the Mail’s Baz Bamigboye last month: ‘Ive been working with a consultant trainer who helps people who have multiple sclerosis, because Billy – the boy I play – is crippled in his legs and his back has gone. I wanted to find a way of conveying his illness in a manner I’d be able to perform every night.
‘If you do these things the wrong way, you can end up with serious back or walking problems.
‘It’s not actually specified what’s wrong with Billy. But reading through the play, it seemed that multiple sclerosis might be closest to what he has.’
Daniel admitted he still gets called Harry Potter in the street, even though most people should know his real name by now.
He told the Wall Street Journal: ‘I almost never get called Harry Potter in New York, whereas over here, it is a lot more.
‘That’s something you get very used to, very quickly, but it’s also nice to be somewhere where people know you’ve done other stuff.’
