The two actors, who are best known for their roles as Frodo in The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter from the franchise of the same name, opened up about being mistaken for one another by fans.
“Once I was in an elevator…just me and one other person, and I could feel them looking at me intently,” Elijah recalled of one moment with a fan. “Just before the door opened, he finally got up the courage, pointed at me and said, ‘Harry Potter!’ I said ‘No!’ and I walked away.”
Daniel had the same type of situation, too.
“Though we’re both short, pale, blue-eyed and brown-haired, I would say that we don’t exactly look alike,” he noted. “But the idea of us is exactly the same.”
Daniel continued, “When people say to me ‘Lord of the Rings!’ I literally just say, ‘Nope. The other one.’”
Being mistaken for each other happens to them often, and Daniel once told a story about him signing an autograph as Elijah.
