- Daniel Radcliffe answered a big question about Harry Potter in a new interview with HuffPost.
- The question was about how Professor Quirrell and Voldemort were still able to sleep if Voldemort was in the back of Quirrell's head throughout the first movie.
- Daniel Radcliffe recently reunited with Ian Hart, who played Professor Quirrell, in their new film, Escape from Pretoria.
While talking to HuffPost, Daniel was asked about Professor Quirrell and Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The movie and book's big twist surrounded around Professor Quirrell's big reveal showing that Voldemort's face was in the back of Quirrell's head the entire time and was hidden under his turban.
Although things are usually accepted quickly in the magical world, HuffPost decided to ask him how Quirrell and Voldemort were able to sleep at night.
"That’s out of nowhere," he said before thinking about it for a minute.
"I would say that the only practical thing to do there would be to sleep on your side, unless Voldemort doesn’t need air, which I’m not sure," Daniel said. "
"As long as there’s breath coming into the body, he’s probably asleep on his front because it would still circulate around the whole thing," he continued. "I’m guessing back-of-the-head Voldemort could survive off front-of-the-head Ian Hart’s air supply."
Since Voldemort's head with hidden throughout the entire movie under Quirrell's turban, this answer seems to make total sense. Especially since he was able to survive all those hours as he taught classes and tried to continue life as a professor at Hogwarts.
Ian Hart played Professor Quirrell in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and recently reunited with Daniel 19 years later on the set of their latest film Escape from Pretoria. While the film is completely different, we can’t wait to see the magic these two cook up in their new film.
