Archive video: Daniel Radcliffe's first Harry Potter interview (2001)
Since it is a bit quiet around new news I decided to post this great press junket interview from Dan from about 10 years ago. It's actually the first interview he did for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with Access Hollywood back in 2001. Always great to watch back right?..

There are two Access Hollywood clips online in which Daniel talks about How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Harry Potter and more. Edit: Only one clip works still.

Updated(2): New The Woman in Black trailer (with exclusive introduction from Dan Radcliffe)

Updated(2): New The Woman in Black trailer (with exclusive introduction from Dan Radcliffe)
Yahoo! Movies released the new US/UK trailer online (below is the UK version, but don't worry both are the same regarding the scenes) of The Woman in Black, and Dan also recorded a short introduction. Enjoy



Update:
Yahoo! Movies talk chatted with Dan about The Woman in Black. Read that below. Then there is also a message to all "Hammer Fans" from Daniel Radcliffe regarding TWIB via Hammer Films
I spoke to Radcliffe from New York where he's appearing on Broadway in the musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" and I asked him what it was about this role that made it the right choice for his first post-"Potter" film.  Radcliffe said, "It was certainly not a part that people can really compare to Harry… But [the] main attraction, to be honest, was simply the story, and how compelling it was, and being a part of a really, really good horror film."

In "The Woman in Black," Radcliffe plays Arthur Kipps, a lawyer whose wife has died leaving him with a young son.  He is sent to a small village to sort out the affairs of a deceased client, but as he delves into local secrets he encounters a ghostly presence that foretells a deadly curse.  Radcliffe called the film's script "a character-driven, well-written horror film that had the capability of being just as scary as any 'Paranormal Activity' or any of those films that have recently come out,  while also having a depth of character that you don't often find there."

That's not to say, however, that Radcliffe considers himself to be a real fan of horror movies.  He said, "To be honest, if I wasn't in it myself I'd probably be too scared to see it."  Though he did clarify that the scares in "The Woman in Black" are not the type that would usually have him covering his eyes.  "What I was always scared of as a child and as a teenager was gore and blood and things like that," Radcliffe said.  "When it got too gory that's when I would get freaked out."  He explained that this film is more of a classically suspenseful ghost story: "There are moments when people do jump out of their seats, but there [are] also the the subtler moments when you just find a chill running up your spine and you're not quite sure why."

"The Woman in Black" is based on a 1983 horror novel that was previously adapted into a play that's been running continuously in London for 23 years.  It was also made into a television movie in 1989, and that version has an odd connection to Radcliffe's earlier career.  Adrian Rawlins, the actor who starred in the lead role in that adaptation, went on play Harry Potter's father.  Radcliffe recalled that he had finished work on the final film, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," and was preparing for this when he learned this fact.  He said, "I went online and, saw, suddenly, yes, Adrian Rawlins's name came up who was one of loveliest actors we've ever had on 'Potter,' and he played my dad."  Radcliffe said the link was entirely coincidental, but that "it was another bit of kinship we had there."

Radcliffe said that he read the original book, but that this new film diverges significantly from how the story is told in the novel.  But he said that Susan Hill, the book's author, "has been with us every step of the way… I know she's seen the film, and [she] is delighted with the finished product."  The film is directed by James Watkins, who previously made the violent British thriller "Eden Lake," which Radcliffe said he watched "and [I] thought, oh Jesus Christ, I know I'll be now working with a psychopath… If he wrote this film he must be an absolutely insane man."  Radcliffe expressed his relief, though, when he met the director and discovered, "he's this very, very smart, very funny, very classy guy."  Radcliffe was so impressed by Watkins work that he said the filmmaker is capable of becoming one of "the leading lights in British cinema for some time."

After playing the same character on screen for a decade — nearly half his life — Radcliffe seems eager to stretch himself with each new role.  But he said, "I don't have a long-term plan whatsoever." While some actors would feel the pressure to follow up a massive franchise like "Potter" with another huge project, Radcliffe doesn't see it that way.  He said, "[In] a way what's quite nice is that I will never have, in my career, a film that it has financially successful as 'Harry Potter.'  Ever. That is beyond question. But what's nice about that is that I don't have to aim for that anymore."  Because he already worked on the sort of big blockbusters that other actors dream of doing, he feels a degree of freedom to pick smaller projects that speak to him personally.  Radcliffe said, "If I dedicate myself to… each film as they come, then the long-term thing should take care of itself."

tweets (from the Press Conference which took place at 4PM today): [@WomanInBlackUK]

James had Daniel Radcliffe working in a marsh tank for three days and he powered through. He's proud of his performance! #TheWomanInBlack

James - 'Daniel is such a delight to work with - to an extent it is suspicious!' #TheWomanInBlack

Jon - 'measuring the audiences reaction is key to tailoring the film for the horror genre' #TheWomanInBlack @EmpireBIGSCREEN

James - we can expect a growing sense of dread when watching the film #TheWomanInBlack

Jon and James - 'Subtle, measured and unsettling. It WILL get under people's skin. And there WILL be jumpy moments!' #TheWomanInBlack

The UK trailer has just been played on stage - only shown in front of select screenings so far #TheWomanInBlack

Updated: Entertainment Weekly scan: New The Woman in Black photo
The new issue of Entertainment Weekly features a new still from Dan as Arthur Kipps into the upcoming movie The Woman in Black. See that one above.
"Harry has his share of harrowing moments, but this film is far more harrowing than any of the Potter films," says Radcliffe, who adds that it was easy to portray a dad because he got his real-life godson, Misha Handley, to play his onscreen son. "I guess I cheated a bit," he laughs.

Update:
CBS Films released a HQ version of the pic.

“The thing we didn’t want was for it to be distracting and I think we figured it out,” Radcliffe said. “We did it with prosthetics, in the end, and I’m sure there will be little bits of visual effects for retouching on those moments when we do a close-up… when you have the prosthetic on for a long time, it’s hard to maintain it, that illusion, and with close-ups you need to fix it up. It’s also a challenge to make someone who is 19 or 20 — an age where their face is still changing — and make them a fully grown adult. I think they looked fantastic though and, if I do say so, particularly mine. Mine looked pretty dead on. That’s me in the future I think.”

Confirmed: Darren Criss to replace Daniel Radcliffe in "How to Succeed"

01 August 2011 8
Confirmed: Darren Criss to replace Daniel Radcliffe in "How to Succeed"
It is confirmed: Darren Criss (Glee and A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel) takes over Dan's role as J.Pierrepont Finch in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying when he is done in January 2012 (Dan stops Jan 1, Darren starts Jan 3), for a three-week run. Broadway.com has posted that a production spokesperson confirmed this.

So if you are still planning to see Dan on stage. you better buy some tickets (see the right sidebar)
"Daniel gives an extraordinary performance eight times a week and we knew finding someone to fill his shoes would be nearly impossible. When we learned of Darren's dream of performing on Broadway we knew we had found our Finch but presumed his "GLEE" schedule would eliminate any chance to work with him," Rob Ashford ~Director/choreographer
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying opened on March 27 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre and scored eight Tony nominations, including Best Revival of a Musical. In addition to Radcliffe, the production currently stars Tony winner John Larroquette as J.B. Biggley, Rose Hemingway as Rosemary Pilkington, Tammy Blanchard as Hedy La Rue, Mary Faber as Smitty and Christopher J. Hanke as Bud Frump.
