Abendzeitung München interview

Interview by the German Abendzeitung München in promotion of The Woman in Black (Die Frau in Schwarz).

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

Q: Mr. Radcliffe, what did you find most difficult during the filming of The Woman in Black?
DANIEL RADCLIFFE: A big physical challenge was to get something muddy out of the moor.
We shot this scene for two days and it was pretty cold and very wet. The mud, however, was not really, but only a special effect. This is something you use in TV shows to whiten others.
You said, "The Woman in Black" is just the kind of movie you would never see because you are so scared. How did you feel in the scariest scenes?
Actually, I could turn them all without problems.
The scenes are not really scary during the shoot, because you are surrounded by many team members. We also laughed a lot when we had to cut off some ridiculous fearful faces. But when I saw the movie for the first time, there were shocks that I did not expect. And they made me cold.

Her film is about Ghost Phenomenon. Do you believe in the supernatural?
No, neither ghosts nor other apparitions.
But I would like to live in a world where there are ghosts and spirits. That would be really exciting! But unfortunately that is not the case.

The movie is heavily advertised with your name. Do you also think he can reach the Potter fans?
That's exactly the role that Harry Potter fans will love.
And to be honest, I've already tested my fans with my theatrical performance in Equus. For the first time, I was no longer a boy, but a man. Anyone who has accepted this transformation will have no problem with my new movie.

You play a good person who did not have it easy and has to fight against evil. He is not unlike Harry Potter.
If you reduce my character to that, then of course that is true.
But I believe that the comparisons are based mainly on the supernatural context of the substances. But Harry is someone who has taken on any challenge while Arthur is not really attached to his life. Only towards the end does the changing shadow become aware of the responsibility for his son.

If you had not become a famous actor, what would you do?
What children dream of: Astronaut or soldier. But I was not very good at school, that would hardly have improved my career plans. But if someone holds a gun to my head and tells me, "You have to give up everything and start over!" - Then I would have become an archaeologist.
