Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he had his first kiss on the set of Harry Potter after reflecting on his time growing up on the Warner Bros film set.

As part of the highly anticipated HBO special Harry Potter: Return To Hogwarts, Daniel and his castmates Rupert Grint and Emma Watson will delve into how much of their childhood and teenage years were spent on the set of the beloved film franchise.

The 32-year-old actor started out playing "the boy who lived" at the age of 11, and spent the subsequent ten years of his life at Warner Bros studios in Leavesden, growing up with the cast and crew.

Despite the outstanding work that Daniel has been involved in since Harry Potter came to an end, the actor said that he would always be happy to talk about the iconic films.

In a clip from the upcoming reunion special, Daniel said: "I think people expect me not to want to talk about it. But that's like somebody not talking about their childhood or their teenage years.

"Every part of my life is connected to Potter and to Leavesden... my first kiss is connected to someone here, my first girlfriends were here... it all spirals out from the Potter set somewhere, you know?"

He continued: "Everyone also says things like: 'You grew up on screen', and it's like, well, yes and no. We did our growing up privately still, we just did it on a film set and we did it with each other and that's bizarre."

We're devastated Daniel didn't spill on who exactly his first kiss was, but you can leave that up to your imagination.

In another teaser clip ahead of the 20th anniversary special, Daniel says he has a "bone to pick" with director Mike Newell.

He explained that every time production wrapped on a Potter film, the production team would tell Daniel and Rupert to grow out their hair over the summer, suggesting that they would decide what to do with it when production for the next film began.

Daniel recalled: "And me and Rupert both dutifully grew our hair for months, and then came in and [Newell] was like: 'Great!'

"And we went: 'No, no no no no. You're not leaving us like this? We're supposed to be becoming teenagers and dating girls in this film. Like, you can't? That's not what it's gonna be is it?'

"So I think we were pretty devastated as we realised that it was."

Don't worry Daniel, we still loved you!

As well as Daniel, Rupert, and Emma, Potterheads can look forward to seeing stars like Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) - among many others - in the Return to Hogwarts reunion.
