Daniel forwarded them this message:

"I'm really excited to be part of this production. I'm thrilled to be working with Richard Griffiths again. This is obviously a huge departure for me as an actor, but Equus is such an amazing play that this really was an opportunity not to be missed.

Rehearsal starts in January and I'm very much looking forward to working with Thea Sharrock who is an incredibly talented Director and only hope I do the role justice!"

The play was originally performed in 1973 by the National Theatre in London. It is a story of a psychiatrist who attempts to treat a young teenage man's pathological fascination with horses. It was an inspiration born out of a crime involving a teenage boy's senseless injury to horses which blinded them. The play received a Tony Award for best play in 1975.

Back then this site didn't excist. I decided to add 'archive news' like this as much as possible. I thought it might be interesting to read for you all

Harry Potter made an appearance after this…sort of. A quick video clip of Daniel Radcliffe (who plays Harry) speaking from the set of “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” (Trelawney's classroom) was shown. For fans who are interested, his hair appears to be the shortest it’s ever been for this film. Daniel said the movie is going great, and said that he was sure audiences were curious about the kiss Harry Potter receives in the movie. He then went on to say, “Well, the kiss is…”

Unfortunately, the director, David Yates, then appeared and started talking about the movie as well. He mentioned that Hagrid’s giant brother Grawp will be in the film, as well as Dolores Umbridge, whom the director described as “a cross between Doris Day and Freddy Krueger.”

Yates then addressed the issue of the kiss as well, saying “Oh, the kiss? It’s…” A production assistant interrupted and said they were both needed on the set. They quickly said goodbye and left, smiling as they left the audience wondering about that darn kiss.

Via movieweb.com:
Daniel talked about working on this film, “It’s fantastic; it’s such a blast being on set.” David gave out some info about Professor Umbridge, played by Imelda Staunton. “She’s a cross between Doris Day and Freddy Krueger,” he said. They’re also going to add some new creatures for this fifth version of the Harry Potter series; “We’re also bringing in these half-men/half-horse characters to the mix, that are wonderful.”
