Dennys Ilic about working with Dan
Photographer Dennys Ilic has been interviewed by Galactica TV about the four years he has been working with Dan (Harry Potter promotion photos)
But in the end I have to say that probably the greatest experience for me overall -- because I've been involved with it for a good four or five years now -- has been photographing Daniel Radcliffe for the Harry Potter films. Partly because I shot him for the first time when he was fifteen years old and I now just finished shooting him when he's 20, Just seeing him change and grow from a young child to this amazing young man. He's so grounded and so intelligent and so focused on his work.

Obviously he makes a good deal of money for someone his age, but he hasn't suffered any of trappings that come with that. He's a normal young man who probably works a hundred times harder than any of us can conceive or would do ourselves. He's just all about his craft. It's just amazing seeing a Harry Potter film being made and seeing how much he does -- how hard he worked on Equus, reading scripts for other projects while at the same time he was preparing for my photoshoot.

Harry is Hot
Little boys grow older and hotter!..When we look at Daniel Radcliffe in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” then. Time for more information on Daniel.

You are 8 Harry Potter movies further. Aren’t you almost become Harry yourself?

D: Harry is amazing and it’s great to play him. But then I hope that people can see him besides me. I also had a role into the play Equus, which even made me stand naked on the stage! Scary, but also great to know that I can do more then just Harry.

And then.. after 10 years of filming, you are ready with filming from the last Harry Potter movie.. strange.. or maybe even relaxed?

D: Very odd.. to not be able to come back to the set after it will end. It was just a nice idea to know that, besides my other projects, the role of harry always waited for me. Now I know that it will end soon, it isn’t so great. And not to be able to work again with all the friends I made on the set is of course not so great. But I won’t miss all the table tennis tournaments with Emma. I am able to beat Rupert most of the times, but Emma is so good at it, she always wins!

How Is it to see the first movie again?
D: It keep strange to look at yourself and to be honest I always get a weird feeling into my stomach when I look at my earlier acting performances. I haven’t done that in a long time. Mmm.. maybe even a good idea. Then can I see how much I have been grown. Literally and figuratively haha.

You love music. To which bands do you listen the most right now?
D: Vampire Weekend is a-ma-zing. Everyone should listen to that. The music from Laura Marling is also on my playlist, she writes amazing song texts. Just like Adele, by the way. And now I am already starting: I’m also a fan from the bands: The Wombats, Beirut, and Mars Volta. Listening to music and explore new bands. I love it!

Wouldn’t you like to play in a band yourself?

D: No.. I absolutely don’t have enough musically talent for that. It would be great if I suddenly get noticed as a great guitarist, but I’m afraid that that will never happen.

Daniel Radcliffe talks about Half-Blood Prince live community screening

Daniel Radcliffe talks about Half-Blood Prince live community screening
David Yates and Daniel discussed the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince BD live community screening with Vira-Tempo blog. 
“So you’re undertaking something of a first with the Blu-ray release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince with the Live Community Screening ’ can you tell me more about that?
David Yates: “Yes. Technically, it’s an extraordinary event. It’s happened before, but not on the global scale that we’re going to do because obviously there are Harry Potter fans everywhere on the planet. It’s on December 12th of this year and Daniel Radcliffe and I will be answering questions directly from fans via BD-Live about how we made the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and some of the things that were challenging as we made it, and some of the things that I’m sure the fans will begin to know about: Why did we leave some things out? Why did some things come in? And it will be the first time that we’ll really engage with that global fan-base on a minute-by-minute basis, so it’ll be really cool.

So you’ll be enticing people to take part, obviously?
Dan Radcliffe: Oh, absolutely. I’m actually genuinely very, very excited about it. I think it’ll be really cool. I’m looking forward to some absolutely mental questions, and probably questions I haven’t been asked before because fans come at the film from a totally different side to journalists. So I imagine there’ll be some stuff I’ve never heard before.”
In terms of the Blu-ray and DVD of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, you crop up on the extra feature about the editing. Is that something that you are particularly interested in?
DR: They said ‘are there any departments that you would be interested having a look into?’ And to be honest, I see about 10 per cent of what goes on in this building. But one of the things I just always thought of as being the most painstaking, meticulous job was editing. And I knew very little about it. And I think editors are actually the unsung heroes of the film industry because they can make bad performances or a bad film look very, very good. So I was really interested and also, Mark’s a really lovely guy, and I thought if I’m going to learn, here’s my chance to have a bit of chat with Mark about it.
And you’re also taking part in something of a first for the Blu-ray this time around. Tell me about the Blu-ray Live Community Screening?

Yes, it’s on December 12th and it means that anybody who has got the Blu-ray copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince can use the BD-Live function on the disc which means that everybody can join in with me and David Yates who are going to be watching the film together. And then everyone around the world will be watching the synchronized version of the film and then they can ask David and I questions – which we will attempt to answer as cogently and interestingly as we can!

Dan about Robert Pattinson's fame
Robert Pattinson always said he admired Daniel on the way he acts into handling the fans and fame. Daniel said the following about this on the DVD launch from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
"I wouldn't have any advice" Radcliffe said. He seems to be coping well" about fame: 'it is totally mad when people are screaming and going absolutely insane for you"

"Particulary with Robert- The amount of women that would jump on him- you have to keep it in some kind of perspective, by thinking 'well partly they like me and partly they are just attracted by the character' As long as you don't think 'oh yeah god they're all doing this - I must be absolutely fantastic' As long as you do that you should be all right"

Interview: EQUUS Nationale Toneel (NL)

Marion 16 November 2009 0
Interview: EQUUS Nationale Toneel (NL)
Door Marion

14 november 2009, Muzeval: Emmen

Ik ben op 14 november naar de Nederlandse versie van Equus geweest. Ik vond het heel gaaf om de Nederlandse versie van Equus te zien. De versie was wel anders. Geen maskers zoals ze in Londen en New York gebruikt hadden, maar nog steeds wel half ontblootte mannen die de paarden voorstelden. Ik had van tevoren al de idee om Xander wat vragen te stellen met betrekking tot Equus in Londen en NY met Daniel. Ik vroeg me o.a dus af of hij Equus met Daniel misschien gezien zou hebben. Hieronder de antwoorden! Xander is 24 en speelt de rol van Alan Strang, dezelfde rol die Daniel had in 2007/2008.

Na de show had ik nog even de kans om met hem te praten, wat heel gaaf was. Hij vroeg me wat ik van Londen vond [ik had hem van tevoren gemaild over het feit dat ik Equus in London had gezien nu alweer 2 jaar geleden] Ik heb hem verteld dat hij wel heel anders was, echt een eigen versie maar wel heel goed. Xander bij deze, je was echt super! Petje af! Heel erg bedankt voor alles! En veel succes met je verdere carrière.

De vragen:

1) Wat vind je in het algemeen van het verhaal achter Equus?
Het verhaal van Equus vind ik enorm fascinerend. Het roept vragen op over wat normaal is en wat niet normaal is. We kennen allemaal wel voorbeelden van mensen als Karst T., die tijdens Koninginnedag op een menigte inrijdt, en mensen die hem kennen die dan zeggen: het was zo'n gewone, normale, rustige jongen. Maar iedereen heeft verborgen driften, angsten, verlangens. Alleen: in hoeverre laat je die zien, laat je ze naar buiten komen? Want de omgeving bepaalt of jij gewoon een beetje vreemd bent, of gek. Equus speelt met deze gegevens. Hoe de 'gek' (Alan) normaal kan zijn en de 'normale' (Dysart) waanzinnig kan worden.

2) Hoe ben je in aanraking met deze rol gekomen?
Via via hoorde ik dat ik Alan zou gaan spelen, het was alleen nog niet officieel bevestigd. Ik speel als vaste acteur bij het Nationale Toneel, dus als je weet dat een stuk gespeeld gaat worden en er een geweldige rol voor je in zit, kun je daar soms best op zitten azen. Toen de regisseur het inderdaad toegaf was ik natuurlijk erg blij.

3) Wat vind je zo leuk aan deze rol?
Alan Strang is een van de meest geweldige rollen die een jonge acteur zich kan wensen. Hij bezit zo veel kanten: met name in het begin is hij totaal gesloten en angstig. Het is een puber op de rand van volwassenheid. Hij is én kind én man. Hij is enorm intelligent (vind ik). Manipuleert als een meester. Draagt het hele stuk lang een groot geheim met zich mee. Er zitten scènes in dat ik hem als een klein jongetje mag spelen. Kortom, één van de rijkste rollen in het toneelrepertoire.

4) Ook mindere punten?
Er is geen enkel moment, geen enkele zin waar ik niks aan vind. En als dat wel af en toe zo is, dan ligt het niet aan Shaffer, maar omdat ik het niet goed speel.

5) Heb je nog speciale dingen gedaan om je in te leven/studeren in deze rol?
Afvallen! Ik ben tien kilo kwijtgeraakt voor deze rol. Uit ijdelheid , maar ook omdat je dan jonger lijkt (ik ben 24). Verder heb ik erg veel gelezen en programma's gekeken die met dit onderwerp te maken hebben. Maar dat is meer ter inspiratie op het thema, voor een rol heb je daar geloof ik niet zo veel aan. De film heb ik natuurlijk gezien, plus zelfs een DVD van een amateurversie. Zo kan ik precies zien wat ik wél en niet zelf ook wil doen.

6) Ben je in Londen of New York geweest om daar Equus te zien?
- Zo ja wat voor een indruk had je van die Engelse versie?
- Hoe vind jij Daniel Radcliffe als Alan Strang?
Ja, ik zag Equus op Broadway, samen met onze regisseur Johan Doesburg. Onze versie is wel heel anders geworden, dat zul je wel zien. Er viel me wel wat op toen ik daar in het Broadhurst Theatre zat te kijken. De Engelsen maken vaak heel getrouwe versies van toneelstukken: er wordt exact geënsceneerd wat er staat in de tekst. Vrijwel niets wordt weggelaten en niets wordt anders gedaan. Zowel qua tekst als qua regie-aanwijzingen. Ik zag opnieuw hoe goed het stuk was (ik had het natuurlijk ook al gelezen), maar vond de uitvoering in de VS wel erg traditioneel.

Dan Daniel Radcliffe. Ik was wel wat nerveus om hem te zien. Ik dacht steeds: stel je voor dat ik hem briljant vind in die rol, dan moet je het ook nog maar eens zelf gaan doen. En toen kwam ik in het theater. Ik vond hem goed. Zelfs erg goed als je in aanmerking neemt dat hij geen toneelopleiding heeft gevolgd en alleen nog maar de Harry Potter-films heeft gedaan Hij was mooi verbeten en gekweld als Alan. Maar ik vond wel dat hij wat weinig kanten liet zien. Zoals ik eerder al schreef, de rol van Alan heeft zo veel facetten. Het gaat ook over passie in positieve zin, het mag ook bij momenten wel een leuke, vrolijke jongen zijn. En dat zag ik bij Daniel niet zo. Dus ik was niet totaal ontmoedigd om aan de rol te beginnen. Maar nogmaals, petje af voor hem. Ze spelen het daar acht keer in de week. Ik zei gister nog tegen Pieter, die de psychiater speelt: "Stel je toch voor dat je dat zo vaak moet doen, ik begrijp niet hoe die mensen daar de kracht en inspiratie voor vinden."

7) Hoe denk jij over de veelgenoemde naaktscene in het stuk?
Tsja, ik denk dat het vooral zo'n big deal is geworden omdat een 'kindsterretje', of hoe mensen dat dan ook zagen, ineens uit de kleren ging. Het is functioneel, kwetsbaar en totaal niet goedkoop. Het is in het begin wel eng, tijdens de repetitie. Als die onderbroek voor de eerste keer uit gaat, oei. Maar wat vooral heftig is, is als na de repetitie de gewone lampen weer aan gaan en jij daar een beetje bedremmeld je ondergoed staat te zoeken. Voor een publiek kan het me niets schelen. Hoewel, gisteravond in Arnhem zaten er veel jonge mensen in de zaal en dan is het toch nét weer even anders. Maar ook dat is na drie seconden over.

8) Was het een idee om Equus in Nederland te starten na het succes op Broadway en West End?
Ja, dat was het. Het oorspronkelijke plan was een co-productie met Joop van den Ende Theaterproducties. Vooral een commerciele producent is dan geïnteresseerd in dat internationale succes. Maar langzamerhand verschuift de discussie al snel naar de inhoud van het stuk, en die blijkt heel actueel en dus noodzakelijk om op de planken te brengen.

9) Wie heeft de Nederlandse versie bedacht/geschreven?
De Engelse tekst is gewoon vertaald naar het Nederlands, door Johan Boonen, een Vlaming. Dat deed hij een paar jaar terug voor een ander gezelschap, en wij hebben de Vlaamse elementen er uit moeten filteren. Ook hebben we het wat ingekort. De visuele dingen die er op het toneel gebeuren hebben we zelf, de regisseur, choreografe, de acteurs, de dansers, bedacht.

Daniel narrates 2010 Holocaust Memorial Day film

Daniel narrates 2010 Holocaust Memorial Day film
Daniel has lent his voice for a short film entitled The Legacy of Hope for the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust. It is created for the Holocaust Memorial Day in 2010 (27th January). This short film focuses on three Holocaust victims who spoke of their survival.

From the press release:

Daniel explains his involvement:
“When I was approached to narrate this short film, The Legacy of Hope, I felt very privileged. I felt that in a very small way I was contributing to the remembrance of these tragic and horrendous events, whilst also commemorating all those people who refused to let the horrors they had lived through dictate the tone of the rest of their lives.

“The surest shield we have against future atrocities is our knowledge and our emotional understanding of what has happened in the past. The chance to help the vital work done by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust could not be turned down.”
Carly Whyborn, Chief Executive Officer, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust:
“With this year’s theme – The Legacy of Hope’ it is entirely fitting that Daniel, who is so well known amongst younger audiences, has narrated our film, which will be shown at HMD events across the UK. Through the film, people will have the opportunity to listen to the memories of survivors like Ben, Lily and Iby and think about what action they can take after HMD which will have a positive impact on their community.”

Daniel supports Get Connected
Daniel is lending his support and made a generous donation to a UK charity called Get Connected, which is a confidential, free, national helpline for young people under-25 who have a problem but do not know where to find help. Get Connected is there for young people in need of help no matter what the issue, from eating disorders to abuse, homelessness to pregnancy.

“I am delighted to pledge my support for Get Connected, and mark their 10th anniversary by becoming their first Best Friend. The free confidential helpline finding young people help for any problem is a vital and unique service. We live in a world that is so full of choice and information; it is often impossible to know where to turn or what to do."

“Get Connected is there for young people in need of help no matter what the issue, from eating disorders to abuse, homelessness to pregnancy. I see Get Connected as much more than just a gateway for information; it is a friend to thousands of young people across the UK. I also support The Trevor Project, which is America’s leading national organisation focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. As with Trevor, I hope that my support can raise the visibility of Get Connected so that even more young people become aware that there’s help on hand.”
Fiona Clark, Interim Chief Executive of Get Connected, added:
We feel extremely privileged that Daniel Radcliffe has chosen to support Get Connected and help us launch our new Friends scheme in such an exciting way. His generous contribution will assist us immensely as we work towards raising greater awareness among young people and expanding our services to be available for young people whenever they need help.

We are hopeful that Daniel's big-hearted commitment will encourage others to follow his lead and also become a Friend of Get Connected to help us make a difference to thousands more young people

Daniel supports The Trevor Project
There had been a press release from The Trevor Project, America's leading national organisation focussed on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gax bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.

Daniel became a financial supporter and joined its Circle of Hope, a “community of major donors” to the organization by giving a "major donation".

This is what Daniel said about it:

In text:
“I am very pleased to begin my support of The Trevor Project, which saves lives every day through its critical work,” said Daniel Radcliffe. “It's extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top three killer of young people, and it's truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. I deeply hope my support can raise the organization's visibility so even more despondent youth become aware of The Trevor Helpline's highly trained counselors and Trevor's many other resources. It's vitally important that young people understand they are not alone and, perhaps even more important, that their young lives have real value.”
Executive director and chief executive officer Charles Robbins:
“We're incredibly grateful to Daniel for his truly inspiring and historic generosity and support,"

“He is setting a meaningful example for millions of young people around the world by embracing diversity and demonstrating that he cares deeply about the well-being of LGBTQ youth."
