Even Daniel Radcliffe has a Donald Trump story.

Appearing as a guest on Monday’s episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, Radcliffe recalled the first time he met the presumed Republican presidential nominee, which coincided with the star’s first-ever talk show appearance.

Radcliffe was 11 years old at the time, and slated to be a guest on the TODAY show to promote Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Trump was also a guest on the program, and Radcliffe was introduced to the New York native before going on air.

“They marched me over to him, and I remember having some idea of who he was but not really a full concept,” Radcliffe told host Seth Meyers. The youngster relayed to Trump that he was nervous about the upcoming TODAY show interview.

“He just said, ‘You just tell them you met Mr. Trump,'” Radcliffe recalled. “To this day, I can’t even relate to that level of confidence.”
