Cinemania Magazine interview (maybe english translation soon) via snitchseeker.com

The cover and interview.

The Harry Potter films have made you a star. Can you tell us about both the positive and negative parts?

I’ve never considered myself a celebrity. Usually, people who do feel that way aren’t very nice. I mean, I know I am a movie star, but what you never have to forget is that you are just an actor.

There’s a lot written about child actors that never got used to their adult lives. How has it been for you?
That never happened to me. I will keep doing what I like, either an actor or whatever I like.

Harry Potter is going to be part of Hollywood history as one of the biggest franchises of all time. What would you like the people to remember about them?
I hope they remember the bond between Harry and both of his friends. Friendship is very important, even more if you were unfortunate and you grew up without parents, like Harry. His friends were his family, and for many kids who are in similar situations in the real world, he’s kind of a role model.

People admire you and some think of you as a hero. Who are your heroes?
My heroes are actors. I like Joseph and Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law… I love movies and I’m like an obsessive fan. As a hero- don’t make fun of me but, I love Bart Simpson! He’s my all time hero, definitely.

Is it true the first time Rowling met you she said it was like finding his lost son?
That’s true. You can’t receive a better compliment, can you? She’s very nice. The first time we talked on the phone she said she wanted to adopt me, which was a great thing. I just handed the phone to David Heyman (producer), I was very embarrassed. She’s a great person.

How much are you like Harry?
I think I’m quite different, though there are some things in which we are alike. Both of us are very reserved in terms of how much we show our feelings. We both value friendship immensely, and we shared the curiosity for things.

You were fan of the books. Do you ever imagined yourself playing this wizard?
I think every time you read a book you always imagined yourself as one of the characters, but it never happened with this books. I never imagined myself in this role.

Do you like writing?
Someone must have told you about that. Yes, I like to write drama and comedy scripts.

If you could remake an old movie, what would it be?
Henry Fonda’s 12 angry men, because that’s my favorite one.

Tell me about your friends.
They are good. I’m very lucky. Many of them come visit me when I’m not working, or on the weekends. If I’m on location, we e-mail each other.

Are you happy with how your life changed since 10 years ago?
Well, I think my life has change sparingly. I mean, people recognize me in the streets. That’s why I have fun with people’s enthusiasm about the saga, and I like to listen to them. But, overall, I am a very normal person.

Do you read what some blogs write about you? Does it annoy you?
I don’t read that. I follow my parents advice: “Just enjoy what you do.” That’s enough for me.

What are your favorite hobbies?
I like the music very much, and I want to play the drums. I like to write some lyrics. I like punk bands, their attitude and sound. The Damned, The Clash, the Undertones, etc… and I follow soccer. I go to the matches with my dad.

Time Out Bahrain interview

Interview by Time Out Bahrain in promotion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1.

You’ve spent nearly half of your life with Harry Potter. Do you think you’ll miss him?
Yes, I will miss the character obviously, but I will also miss the process of making these films and the friends I have made.

Do you think you’ll be called Harry Potter for the rest of your life?
No, not particularly. People have cast me in other things so far, and I don’t see why that should stop just because Harry Potter does. There are some who will probably see me as Harry forever, and there are some who will be willing to keep an open mind.

You’re 20 now, but how old do you actually feel? You’ve been working your whole teenage life...
My friend always says I’m a 60-year-old man in a young man’s husk. I flit really between being about nine, mentally, to about 80, and I use very old fashioned words at times. I can have a young sense of humour, which I love still, but some things I see in an old way because I’ve grown up quite quickly, and I can be very grumpy about them.

So how straightforward is your life? You’re the star of the biggest film franchise ever...
Well yes, that’s the reality of it in terms of gross and stuff. I can lead a pretty normal life. It is actually really straightforward, particularly when I am filming – I wake up at 6am every morning, just because I’m terrified of oversleeping. I get to work by 9am and leave by 7pm. It’s that simple. I still work on Saturday – I either do an acting or voice coaching lesson, the gym or something like that, just to keep everything going. Sunday is very much a day of rest for me.

What’s the weirdest thing a fan ever did?
So many to choose from! I’ve had very strange presents sent. I had a fake hand sent – well, I hope it was fake.

With a note or something?
No! It was unexplained. That’s what made it brilliant. There was a letter, but I think it was near the time of Halloween that someone sent a Freddie Krueger mask that smelt really bad. I’ve had some very funny things. The best one, of course, was a Japanese present I was once sent which was a – I’ve probably told this story before – it was a big plastic ear. It was rubbery, and you’re meant to take it out at a dinner party or something, and say, ‘Oh no, there’s something wrong with my ear… it’s a big ear!’ and it unfolds just like that. It’s a big thing in Japan apparently.

I know you go to a lot of rock gigs. Do you have to go in disguise?
Well, the great thing about concerts is that it’s not like, say, when you go to see a film. Your main purpose is always going to be the film, but because it’s not live, you’re going to be distracted and looking around. At a rock gig people are focused. I’ve only been recognised once at a gig and it was by some really, really posh kids at a Killers concert, who really obviously didn’t like me very much.

Equus was a big success for you – you finished in that last year. How did it feel to take it to Broadway?
Very nervous, actually. We had to approach it with a new attitude, not thinking, ‘Well, we’ve done this once in London, we’ll be able to do it again.’ If we went in with that attitude, we frankly wouldn’t deserve to be there. You hear things about New Yorkers, ‘Some of them see 50 shows a year,’ and all those things. There was obviously massive uproar in America when I was doing it in England because I was a minor – 17 at the time – and I was getting my kit off, which I found very funny.

How do you approach playing Harry Potter each time? Is it difficult to bring something new?
Well, for the past couple of years I’ve gone off and done other things in between the films. I go off and learn stuff, and then want to implement those things and come back to Potter, so that excites me. And it’s also the chance to go back and work with my best friends. Working with [director] David Yates, for example. There are a ton of reasons and things which get me excited about going back to Potter each time.

Do you think it was inevitable that the last book would always become two films?
I think it was, kind of. I know there were a few agents – not agents, people – fighting against it. I never thought we could do it in one, because it would be a risk. You just couldn’t. In the fourth film you can cut out the house elves and still have the same story, but I don’t think there’s anything in the last book that is surplus to requirements. There are no subplots; it’s just one driven-through line, and of course that means you’ve got to put it all in. So it became two films. We’ve come so far and done so well, we don’t want to fall at the final hurdle.

American Libraries READ campaign interview

Interview with Daniel about the READ campaign.

How did the READ poster photo shoot go? Librarians everywhere have been clamoring for Harry Potter posters since 2001
I think it’s good we waited; my interview answers at age 11 wouldn’t have been as interesting. We shot a lot of other things at the same time, but this one was simple and only took about 15 minutes.

In your poster, you are holding Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita. That’s an extremely interesting book choice, with demons, succubi, a talking cat, the interplay of good and evil, truth and lies. How did you discover it?
I’ve been obsessed with the novel ever since I read it about a year ago. I’ve always been a huge fan of Magical Realism. It’s an inspiring genre in which writers can just let their imaginations go wild and wonderful. I discovered the book through an Amazon.com recommendation. I’d just ordered Louis de Biernières’s The War of Don Emmanuel’s Nether Parts, and The Master and Margarita came up as an Amazon “other readers like this book” choice. I’ve read it twice now, and I just received an English first edition (Collins and Harvill, 1967) with a beautiful cover as a birthday present. That’s the one that appears on the READ poster.

You mentioned in one of your interviews that you buy a lot of books—what are some of your favorites?
I loved Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. I also liked Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose, and Émile Zola’s Germinal, which I thought would be difficult but it read very easily. I also like classic Russian writers; I’ve read Mikhail Lermontov’s A Hero of Our Time and Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Notes from the Underground. The reason that these books have become classics is that they are so readable and accessible.

Do you think Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one of the best books in the series?
My personal favorite is the fifth, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, because it’s involved with Harry’s relationship with Sirius Black, the most interesting character in the series. But Deathly Hallows is also one of the best novels. J. K. Rowling was under intense pressure to complete the series, but she is a woman of much conviction and she wrote a final novel that was both up to her exacting standards and one that she knew would give fans the ending that they wanted.

Will these two Deathly Hallows films be the best of the Harry Potter series?
They’d better be. We need to have the series go out with a bang, in recognition of all the fans who have supported the films and books over the years.

How much of the Harry Potter character is due to J. K. Rowling’s text, and how much do you attribute to your own insights and ideas?
Most of what you need to know about Harry Potter is in the books. It would have been presumptuous of me to add things that were not already there. J. K. Rowling is not one of those authors who is constantly on the set, but she was always available to answer questions.

Besides mastering Rowling’s books, how else have you prepared for your role in the film series? Do you get ideas from other fantasy novels?
Not in other novels so much as listening to music. I find Radiohead inspirational, also Florence and the Machine, whose song “My Boy Builds Coffins” from the 2009 Lungs album is filled with melancholy and determination. And “Me Ves Y Sufres” from Hope of the States’s 2004 The Lost Riots album, with the lyrics, “It’s so desperately sad that my life has come to this / I hope there’s something better than this for me.” Harry Potter is similarly dogged by tragedy.

Have you ever dipped into books on occultism for inspiration, or books about basilisks and dragons?
No, not at all. I didn’t know there were any books on basilisks. But I did look at J. K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a companion book to the series, and Jorge Luis Borges’s Book of Imaginary Beings.

What was it like shooting scenes for the first two films in Duke Humfrey’s Library at Oxford University? Did the librarians let you look at any of the really rare books?
No. Even if they had, I doubt whether I would have appreciated them at the time. However, I’m very excited to participate in the British Library’s Adopt a Book program that supports the library’s conservation work. For my birthday, a former teacher of mine, a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, chose Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles to adopt, and we get to go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the library’s conservation lab. I’m really looking forward to it.

Librarians love Harry Potter because Rowling has created such vivid characters and a fun fictional world that encourages kids to read. I understand that many cast members were intense fans of the book. Do people tell you that the books and the films have inspired a love of reading?
Absolutely, and I am a case in point. Before I was cast in the first Harry Potter film, I didn’t read much at all. But I have grown to love reading because of the film and now I am an absolutely voracious reader, although kind of a slow one. Anything that gets kids into reading is fantastic.

Do you run into other people who say that the books and films are instruction manuals for paganism and witchcraft? How do you answer them?
I have encountered that occasionally. “Paganism” is one of those words that’s thrown around and can have some terrible connotations, and I detest the word “witchcraft.” I tell them that witchcraft is not real and that I don’t understand what they are complaining about. Harry Potter is about loyalty and friendship and duty and fighting for what’s right. I believe in people and the human spirit.

I’ve read that you have contributed to charities that have helped out with the recovery from the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004. Are you also involved in literacy outreach efforts or anticensorship causes?
These are absolutely the kinds of causes that I would support. Recently I have been giving to The Trevor Project, which is an around-the-clock crisis and suicide-prevention helpline for gay and lesbian youth.

The Harry Potter role has offered you a wide range of acting challenges—drama, comedy, action, maybe even a little bit of romance. What type of role do you see as your best fit at this time?
I don’t really like to think in terms of genre. If a film has a good script, with a good director and a good part, then I’d consider it. There are very few good films that fall into just one genre.

Exclusive The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XXI clips

Interview with guest voice Daniel Radcliffe regarding The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XXI, released by Fox.

Updated(2): Harry Potter websites interview

Snitchseeker.com and various other Harry Potter websites took part in a group chat with Daniel back in August in which he talked about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1.

Update: 8th July 2011. More from their interview in which Daniel talks about Deathly Hallows part 2 is released and you can find that below.
Update: 13th july 2019. Read more from mugglenet.com, HPANA.com and danradcliffe.com at mugglenet.com.

What was it like playing the other characters for the Seven Potter scene?
Daniel Radcliffe:
Oh, it was bizarre; some were easier than others to impersonate. The actor Andy, who played Mundungus, was the easiest because Andy has a very, kind of a idiosyncratic walk and way about him. He was easy to imitate. But you know, Rupert was very difficult, because Rupert's got a - you know, his walk - you wouldn’t expect that about Rupert. When you actually analyze it, Rupert’s got a real wiggle in the hips when he walks. That was slightly unexpected. He was one of the slightly tricky ones.

But it was great fun And I think it’s going to be a very funny, good scene as well because normally if you see split screen stuff in films it’s often the case that you can see the join, as it were. Where one actor is more apt to playing two on screen at the same time, they don’t really cross over into each other’s space very often. Whereas in this scene, the way we did it was very, very clever and rather brilliant so that we can have everything overlapping. Obviously it’s an actor’s dream – there are seven of me on screen at one time. It’s fantastic!

How was it playing Hermione?
That was fun. The girls were very, very funny. I think the crew were slightly worried that I was walking around a little too confidently in those heels of Fleur’s. But it was very good fun.

Entertainment Weekly announced the split point for Deathly Hallows this week (note this took place in August) - last week, rather, where Voldemort gains possession of the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's tomb. How long have you known about this split point, why this was chosen, and what's your opinion of this scene being chosen as the end of part one?
Well, to be honest with you, you have been a little bit preemptive in that, because we don't actually know when the split's going to be, yet. So, that's not confirmed, I have to say. I mean, I haven't actually hear that, as one of the places that it might be.

That would be - as an option - would be kind of very appropriate, and a good suspenseful moment to have. I mean, it's, at the moment it's sort of within, in or around sort of a few scenes different of where it could be, but I won’t say where it might be, yet, in case I'm then proved very, very wrong. (laughs) I hate to disappoint you on that one.

I heard rumours that it could be right before Malfoy Manor. Is there some truth in that, without saying too much?
There is, but it could be - you know - it could be ten scenes before, it could be ten scenes later. We genuinely don't know, at the moment, I'm afraid.

Which film was your favorite hair look?
I would probably say either the third film or the last one – these ones we’ve just finished. I think those are the two in which we’ve got the hair most right. To be honest, my favorite time I ever look is when I’m covered in mud and blood and sweat. I think that’s how I look best. It’s obviously hard to achieve that look in day-to-day life, but still it’s certainly I think how I look strongest. With those kinds of scenes also it’s weirdly helpful. It does actually help you get into the character and get into the scene if you are covered in all that stuff. It’s actually very helpful in terms of helping your performance.

What would your reaction be to doing something like Harry Potter the musical for stage?
My reaction would be pretty negative. Harry Potter is a book then our films, you know? I mean, hey, a radio play could work. I don’t know how it would be done on musical. I’m ready to be proved wrong, but I think it’s a bit of a long shot. In my opinion, it’s not the kind of film that would make a good musical. I don’t think it lends itself to those things. To be perfectly honest with you, I just don’t think it would work and I don’t think I would be a big fan of that idea.

What was the most challenging thing to film physically and emotionally [in Deathly Hallows]?
Physically? Well, underwater stuff is always pretty tricky. In this case it was particularly tricky because it’s a big fight scene. I’m going under into the frozen lake to get the sword of Gryffindor and obviously the horcrux is fighting for its existence and is trying to kill me. We do what will hopefully be a pretty terrifying almost semi-homage to The Omen where I get dragged up against the ice and toyed around by the locket. So that was pretty challenging.

Emotionally? All the stuff early on in the film in the first part with Rupert. It’s very, very hard, as I’m sure you all know, to hate Rupert Grint – even in performance. So that was a challenge, but hopefully some really, really good scenes will have come out of it. Also, all the scenes in Godric’s Hollow where Harry sees his parents’ tombstone. They were obviously big emotional moments. Harry being such a battle hardened, almost desensitized person at this stage.

He’s dealing with emotions that he doesn’t know how to show because he’s buried emotions for so long. That’s how he’s managed to survive and keep his sanity. By ignoring, a lot of the time to the back of his mind, his tragic past and how he feels about it. So to mind the natural grief one would feel at that moment with the stoicism that Harry has developed over the last years – that was a challenge, but one I thoroughly enjoyed.

Part 1 is more of a road movie. Was it a really different experience playing Harry?
Absolutely. It’s a very different film. It’s bizarre, in a way. I don’t think we were aware how different it was at the time of filming. At the time we were just doing scenes like we’d do any other scenes. We weren’t really thinking about how different it was going to eventually seem. But then when I saw the trailer and saw the extra footage I’ve seen, it just struck me how very different it’s going to be because we’ve never seen these characters in this different context before.

I think it’s one of the things that makes the first film so exciting. You see these characters stripped of their comfortable safe surroundings, and suddenly just out in the wilderness together. The first one, as well as being that road movie, because they’re all overexposed and it’s such a different situation, you learn a lot more about how those characters function in that situation. It’s a real exploration of the relationships between them and the flaws – particularly Harry and Ron, because Hermione as always is the voice of reason. Harry and Ron do fall apart to some degree. It’s a very different feel to it. I think, hopefully, people will be very excited by that.

For people who haven’t read the book, do you think the fan’s reaction will turn in the first half of the movie against Dumbledore because of Rita’s book?
I hope so. That’s the intention. That, for me, is what the first film is about. It’s about faith. It’s about how far can one’s faith be tested before you give in entirely. Harry’s a Job figure in the book in the first part. He hears so much about Dumbledore that is less than esteemable. He starts to really question why he’s going on this insane, demanding mission, which is costing him his friends and potentially will cost his life - for somebody he starts to question the values of. Hopefully at the end of the first film people should be very much wondering, “Well, what was Dumbledore’s real agenda?” They should question it because that is ultimately what we want them to do.

I also think, while I’m on the topic of talking about faith is also about as Harry loses faith in Dumbledore and starts to fall apart, so Ron and Hermione lose faith in Harry. Harry becomes … I was also comparing him to a Roman Emperor in the last days of the empire just getting paranoid, isolated and puffing himself up. I always felt with Harry there is an element of a martyr complex in him. He doesn’t want to reach out for help. He wants to be the sacrifice. He wants to do it alone. There’s a pride/arrogance, which means he won’t always reach out to other people. When, if fact, he should. When, in fact, he’s actually endangering his own chances of succeeding in this mission and, therefore, the chances of saving the good of the magical world by not asking for help and not accepting help.

Now that it’s all over have you kept any mementos from the series?
I’ve got two pairs of glasses. One from the seventh film which were lensless because we use two sets of glasses on films: lensed and lensless. We use lensless for camera reflections and things like that. And also I have a lensed pair from the first film, which are just these tiny little things now that a boy I used to know used to wear. It’s very sweet and they both have pride of place in my home. And actually I’m probably going to get broken into now that I’ve told you that. That was the only thing that I wanted. I didn’t want the wand. I clearly didn’t want the broom. Those were the only thing I had my heart set on.

If you had to choose to take the journey that Harry takes in the movie in real life, would you and why?
I think I would if I had the same responsibility that Harry had, I’d like to think that I would be as selfless and as brave as he could be. I think we all would like to think that. And recognize the importance of what he had to do for the good of all of those people that he loves and the people he has to help protect. So, yes, I think I would. Although I don’t think any of us are as brave as Harry.

Deathly Hallows part 2

SnitchSeeker: It was reported that Kate Winslet was asked to play the Grey Lady but she turned it down. Who is playing the role and what was it like playing against her for such a pivotal scene?
Daniel Radcliffe:
Unfortunately that hasn’t been announced yet so I can’t actually say. [Editor’s Note: Scottish-born Kelly Macdonald was confirmed to play the Grey Lady.] Rest assured it is a wonderful British actress whose very well known and held in high esteem by lots and lots of people. Somebody who, on a personal note, I was thrilled to work with. She’s wonderful in the role and brings both the loneliness and sense of isolation and also the embittered anger that that character needs to have. I hadn’t actually heard the Kate Winslet rumor. I think if that had come to fruition I don’t think I would have been able to look her in the eye. I’m far too in love with her. So, in a way I’m quite glad that didn’t happen because I think my performance would have just fallen apart.

What was the most challenging thing to film physically [in Deathly Hallows - Part 2]?
The stuff actually in Gringott’s bank in the Lestrange vault where all the treasure is multiplying and multiplying, that was very hard. The way we did it was we had moving platforms on the set so that as the treasure multiplied, these platforms would move up and I would have to struggle onto the next one and then onto the next one and then on to the next one. I don’t think my calf muscles have ever worked quite so hard. So that was, physically, a pretty challenging thing.

What as it like to film the scene with Helena Bonham Carter playing Hermione as Bellatrix?
It was very, very funny. It was actually one of my favorite scenes on the film to do was all fo us, Warwick Davis, Helena and Rupert all on the cart going into Gringott’s bank. Of course Helena and Warwick are hysterically funny, both of them. I basically became Helena Bonham Carter’s PA on this film. The first day I was going, “Helena, you gonna hold that coffee? Do you want that coffee in this shot or do you want me to move it somewhere else for you? Are you gonna use that character thing you’re doing now?” She’s mad and brilliant and wonderful and everything I love about the English people. So that was great fun. The scene then when she whips the dragon’s back was also hilarious. On that part me and Rupert were all soaking wet. It was great fun. It was very, very funny. Helena as Hermione is very, very funny. Or rather Hermione as Helena … it felt very confusing.

Did she have to be a little bit more conservative?
Yes, yes. Yes, she certainly did than she would normally be as Bellatrix.

Part 1 is more of a road movie. Was it a really different experience playing Harry?
Absolutely. It’s a very different film. It’s bizarre, in a way. I don’t think we were aware how different it was at the time of filming. At the time we were just doing scenes like we’d do any other scenes. We weren’t really thinking about how different it was going to eventually seem. But then when I saw the trailer and saw the extra footage I’ve seen, it just struck me how very different it’s going to be because we’ve never seen these characters in this different context before. I think it’s one of the things that makes the first film so exciting. You see these characters stripped of their comfortable safe surroundings, and suddenly just out in the wilderness together. The first one, as well as being that road movie, because they’re all overexposed and it’s such a different situation, you learn a lot more about how those characters function in that situation. It’s a real exploration of the relationships between them and the flaws – particularly Harry and Ron, because Hermione as always is the voice of reason. But Harry and Ron do fall apart to some degree. It’s a very different feel to it.

Can you talk a bit about the final battle and the emotion [since] Harry’s gone away and comes back to find everyone fighting and Hogwarts on fire?
It’s a bizarre thing. It wasn’t so much the courtyard scene in the battle that was emotional, it was actually seeing the Great Hall destroyed and turned into a field hospital, which was the slightly more emotionally shocking moments. The Great Hall is such an iconic set. Seeing it destroyed is bizarre. The emotions for us all were that really brought home the fact things were coming to a close. Sad as that was, it gave us an awareness of how much it mattered that we get this right. How much we owe it to all the people who have supported us for so long to get it right, as well as for ourselves. It’s a huge motivation because we’ve been there for ten years and don’t want to go out in any other way than spectacularly. Also to the people who have watched for so long, we know we owe it to them, as well, to make this film the best we can.

What was your favorite thing in the movie and why?
There’s so many to choose from. And the truth is, this year, we filmed this film over a period of 17 months, so I’ve forgotten a lot of it from the beginning. Here’s actually one of the two favorite scenes. One of them is when I’m going into the forest. I see the ghosts of my parents and of Sirius and Lupin. They’ve come back to give me guidance and comfort in what are, in theory, the last moments of Harry’s life. I’ve always found that scene right from when I read it in the book to be one of the most moving moments in all the films. And also, on a personal note, I had missed having Michael Gambon on set very, very much. And so to do the Kings Cross scene where we meet in this half life, limbo world was also one of my favorites because it’s an amazing set. It’s slightly odd, disturbing, more surreal than Harry Potter’s ever been before. So that would’ve been my favorite scene probably.
