Daniel Radcliffe to Accept Award for Preventing Suicide


Daniel Radcliffe


The British actor will receive an award from the Trevor Project for his attention to raise awareness of suicide prevention among youths.

Daniel Radcliffe is set to be honored with the Trevor Project's Hero Award for his work helping the suicide prevention organization. The "Harry Potter" star will be handed the top prize for raising awareness of the non-profit group dedicated to crisis support for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered youths.

But the modest Brit, who has appeared in public service announcements for the Trevor Project since 2009, insists the real heroes are the staff members working tirelessly for the charity. He tells the Associated Press, "It's fantastic. The fact that they think of what I've done by promoting awareness of the Trevor Project itself and the issues that it works to promote and help is a great honor".

"The people that are doing the heroic things are the people answering phones 24 hours a day in the Trevor call centers. I think that out of everything that I've done so far in my career, I think this is absolutely one of the most important, if not the most important, thing that I'm associated with."

Former recipients of the Trevor Hero Award include actor Nathan Lane, "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and "Ugly Betty" star Vanessa Williams.

Radcliffe will pick up his award at a ceremony in New York in June.
