Broadway.tv article: Dan praised for great performance
Daniel with Peter Leone.
Radcliffe took time to meet with Olympian Show Jumping Medalist Peter Leone backstage in the final days of Equus. It was Leone’s Lionshare Farm where the cast learned to become horses, though we hope Daniel did not learn how to actually blind horses at the farm. The hauntingly poetic horses of Broadway’s Equus helped make this production effective and highly memorable. In a season packed with strong revivals, Equus merits strong consideration for the Tony awards.

Leone shared that Radcliffe told him that Broadway audiences were even more invigorating than West End houses. While he enjoyed the stage, Daniel is also quite excited to return to film as well. Broadway fans can only hope that he’ll continue building a career in both theatre and film. He certainly proved that he has the talent and discipline to excel in both venues.

Updated: News on Dan's stunt double
You all must have heard the story Dan's stunt double already the past week. Daniel's stunt double David Holmes (25) was seriously injured while filming a flying sequence for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. And now Daniel has visited him together with Tom Felton (with girlfriend) now he's back in London.
"The actors appeared shaken upon leaving the hospital, and with due cause – Holmes has been Daniel's body double for all of the Harry Potter movies, and the injuries to his spine could cause paralysis."
Update: It is being reported that David Holmes, will never walk again following his accident. David will remain confined to a wheelchair.
"A friend said: "David is struggling to come to terms with the news.The friend said: "David had done the stunt earlier that day but he said that it was harder to perform than usual and that it hurt when it was pulling him back."It's a dangerous stunt and David knew that. Most stuntmen get double their daily pay to carry it out."The stunt went terribly wrong and David was thrown so far that he missed all of the safety mats. He hit the ground very hard."He told crew members he couldn't feel anything from the waist down."
A source revealed: "Greg (Stunt co-ordinator) is devastated by what has happened. He was there when the surgeons told David that he would never walk again.It's terrible news but his family and friends are trying to offer him as much support as they can."He is so young and was very good at his job. But his life will be completely altered now."The source added: "Although David has been told he'll never walk again he is still not giving up hope."Deep down he knows it's unlikely but it's still early days and so he's not giving up completely."

Equus: backstage with Wayne Hankin

Equus: backstage with Wayne Hankin
Performer Wayne Hankin's page at Epresskitz.com posted this photo of Daniel and him backstage during the run of Equus in NY.
Daniel, a first-rate theater actor, can hold his own onstage with anyone. He's also a great music lover and blessed with a fine family who do everything together

Via Wayne Hankin's Facebook (note: Wayne means with "we had visitors" the show Cirque Du Soleil)
New York: Being off broadway was nice. We had visitors. The first was Alan Rickman, who liked the show enough to tip off this fellow Daniel Radcliffe who liked it even more. He is like a sponge and takes in everything with a great amount of enthusiasm. He invited us to see his run of Equis and he proved to be a tremendous theatrical actor, holding his own against Royal Shakesphere and Vic talents. He really carried the production. He is also very humble and his family, especially his Dad Alan do everything together
