People think some jobs are very easy to do. For example, take a receptionist – you would think, just take calls and be sitting at your desk all day “doing nothing”.

Well, I bet Radcliffe now knows what it feels like to fill a receptionist’s shoes.

The 25-year-old Harry Potter star managed to get the job done while an hour-long receptionist of Nylon Magazine. As you can see on the next video, Radcliffe battles with talking to strange people, taking phone calls and receiving packages.

You can hear the actor saying the job is proving to be one of the hardest things he has ever done. He is preparing for a new movie role apparently.

He even struggles to find stamps, and ends up accepting he is not very good at doing the job (customers say he is not very good at it).

“People come in and you need to know what they need, it’s terrifying!”, admits Radcliffe, and at the end of the video gives a compliment to the receptionist he was replacing for a bit, telling her “I don’t know how you f#%^* do this”.

I sure liked the video. It shows a more human side of one of the most famous actors in the world at the moment. What do you think of Radcliffe’s attempt as a receptionist? Funny? Not funny? Let me know below.
