Washington: Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that there were quite a few things that frightened him as a child, but the thought of a nuclear blast terrified him the most.

The young star is about to scare film fans as the star of horror film ‘The Woman in Black’.

“I was afraid of ghosts when I was a kid and afraid of the dark and monsters under the bed. When I was a kid and somebody first told me about a nuclear bomb I would live in fear of nuclear war for the next five years of my life,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

Nowadays, his biggest fear is creepy crawlies.

“I don’t love cockroaches,” the ‘Harry Potter’ star admitted.

And he revealed that he doesn’t buy into ghost stories anymore.

“This film was made entirely by cynics. Strange things have happened but I don’t explain it with ghosts. It requires actually way more explanation for me than justifying a ghost doing something,” he said.
