In a live online video chat Daniel Radcliffe answered questions submitted by young people around the world about bullying, career insecurity he's felt, and the reason is so dedicated to helping prevent teenagers from committing suicide.
Since the end of his popular Harry Potter film franchise last year, Radcliffe has established himself as a talented Broadway actor with roles in revivals of Equus and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and will soon be seen as late gay poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings. The 23-year-old took part in the Trevor Project chat to help raise awareness for September's National Suicide Prevention Month campaign. Radcliffe has filmed numerous public service announcements for the LGBT teen suicide prevention organization and was honored with its Hero award in 2011.
During an interview with The Advocate in May, Radcliffe spoke about his passion for Trevor Project. "I find it incredibly frustrating that people are still being brought up in ways that encourage homophobia and allow it to affect the lives of millions of people across the country and the world," he said.
The live chat was moderated by Shira Lazar of the online interactive show, What's Trending with Shira Lazar, and was broadcast through TrevorTalkToMe.org and on The Trevor Project’s YouTube and Google+ pages.
