London (ANI): It seems that four ex-SAS officers are not enough for Harry Potter star and stalker target Daniel Radcliffe, for the actor has asked for an additional two-man SAS team, and that too not for himself, but his two pet pooches. The teenaged actor has requested for two SAS officers to walk his dogs, reports The Sun.
Radcliffe, who has been receiving death threats from the stalker, fears that his beloved pets Binka and Nugget will be kidnapped and killed. The actor also asked for a total number of 15 SAS men to guard him. However, he was assigned only four ex-SAS officers by his management who told him: "You're Harry Potter, not J-Lo!". Insiders say that the nature and details of the threat, received through Warner Bros, is unclear.
However, a security source revealed that bosses are taking the threat seriously and ordered Radcliffe's protection at all times on set and to and from shoots. "There is a real concern for Daniel's welfare. The bigwigs haven't said what has been going on. It's all hush-hush but security has been massively ramped up," the source said.
The actor has also been provided with a "chase car" which follows the vehicle in which he is travelling in case of emergency.
