Daniel Radcliffe categorically denies smoking cannabis
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has categorically denied smoking cannabis at a party after photos of his alleged drug use were splashed in the Mirror today.
The roll-up being smoked by the 20-year-old actor at the flat of a friend in Camden, north London, contained merely tobacco, a spokesman for the star explained. "Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this," he said.
"We are considering our position and will be taking all necessary action in relation to such allegations."
Pictures on the cover of the Mirror and a two-page spread inside show the actor laughing after having allowed a fellow partygoer to draw a beard on his face.
Wadia Tazi, who was also at the gathering, told the Mirror that the actor "pulled out a huge joint and lit up".
Radcliffe is currently putting the finishing touches on his performance in the final two-part episode of the Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
