Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he suffers from a mild form of dyspraxia, a brain disorder that can impair the organization of movement.
The neurological problem — which plagues about 10 percent of people in Great Britan — interfereres with a person's normal learning process, as Radcliffe's rep told London's Daily Telegraph that his client's "condition is very mild and at worst manifests itself in an inability to tie his shoe laces and bad handwriting."
The actor said his battle with dyspraxia lead him to pursue acting.
"I was having a hard time at school in terms of being crap at everything, with no discernible talent," he said.
The young star next appear as the iconic character in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which will be released in July of 2009.
