During an interview with the BBC, the star of the “Harry Potter” films — who has said Donald Trump stirs up feelings of “fear and hatred” — was asked outright if he works in a racist industry.

“It’s pretty undeniable,” Radcliffe said. “We like to think of ourselves as being a very, very progressive industry, but we have been lagging behind in all kinds of areas. ”

Radcliffe said he knows actors who won’t say they’re gay because they fear retribution. (RELATED: Lil Wayne: I Have Never Experienced Racism)

“I suppose then people just want to cast you as gay.”

In another interview, Radcliffe said he predicts that Trump will become president.

“I do think he’s going to get in actually, unfortunately, but, you know, we’ll make the best of it,” Radcliffe said.

“Frankly, I think that at this point him not getting in is maybe more dangerous than him getting in, just because the amount of people that will then say it was all rigged. I feel like there’s almost a part of you that’s like, ‘No, if you want this you need to get it so that you see how much you don’t want it really.’”
