Daniel Radcliffe missed his first day at Comic-Con 2014 convention yesterday after he was reportedly stranded in Canada due to visa problems, but will make the convention today, according to reports.
The star had been in Toronto to premiere his new movie What If ahead of a planned trip to Comic-Con, but he was unable to leave the country due to an issue with his work visa which left him unable to enter the U.S.
A source tells New York Post gossip column “Page Six,” “He’s stuck in Toronto with visa problems.”
Editors of the publication report Radcliffe is currently in the process of upgrading his work visa to a permit which will grant him a three-year stay in America, and needed a stamp from the U.S. embassy in Toronto to approve the paperwork.
However, Radcliffe was reportedly unable to obtain the stamp in time because the embassy’s computer network was suffering technical problems.
According to Page Six, “Radcliffe’s rep responded at 2 a.m. Friday that a delayed Radcliffe ultimately did arrive in San Diego — in time for a scheduled Comic-Con panel later Friday afternoon with his co-star Juno Temple and director Alexandre Aja. Horns is being released by the Weinstein Company’s Radius-TWC label.”
