Radcliffe, who played the boy wizard in the hit franchise, admits he wanted to keep the item as a special memento from his time spent working on the fourth instalment.

But was forced to give it back after learning it was worth a staggering $15,000.

”I did get in trouble when I was caught with the dragon’s egg. I didn’t know it was worth 10,000 pounds (about $15,000) and going into a museum. I had to give it back,” imdb.com quoted Radcliffe as saying.

”They were doing car checks to make sure nothing was being stolen,” he added.

Radcliffe’s co-star Rupert Grint also attempted to take a golden egg home, but movie bosses tracked the prop down and ordered him to hand it over.
