Ever dreamed of hanging out with a Hollywood celebrity? Filipino actor JC Santos is one of the lucky few who have lived that fantasy.

In a recent interview with Monster RX 93.1, Santos recalled grocery shopping with Daniel Radcliffe back in 2013 when he was studying musical theater in New York. The Harry Potter actor approached him by the sidewalk and asked “Hello there. Do you know where Duane Reade (pharmacy) is?”

“Pagkatingin ko, as in sa loob ng utak ko, may sumigaw na ‘Si Harry Potter!’” he said, adding that the encounter made him speechless.

“Hindi ako makapagsalita! Sabi ko talaga, ‘Do you want me to take you there?’ As in naglakad kami ni Harry Potter. Sinamahan ko siya sa Duane Reade at sinamahan ko siyang mag-groceries,” he continued.

Netizens joked about turning green with envy after hearing Santos’ story, writing “Sana all” in the comment section of the clip.

Santos is currently promoting his new film More Than Blue—a Philippine remake of a 2009 K-drama) with Yassi Pressman.
