Slant magazine interview - Daniel J Radcliffe Holland


Slant magazine interview

Interview with Daniel by Slant magazine in promotion of Kill Your Darlings.

Is it true you were offered the part in Kill Your Darlings because the director, John Krokidas, saw your work on Broadway?
Absolutely. I do think, looking back on Equus, it was more important than I knew at the time even. I knew that it was a good choice to make, and I was really pleased with the work we had done on it, but I could never have imagined that four or five years later it would have got me this part. Also, you know, just as a statement of intent to the industry, I think it made people go, “Oh, okay, he’s not content to rest on his laurels and just live off of Harry Potter, as it were, for the rest of his life; He wants to challenge himself.” I think half of the key to success in this industry is showing the willingness to take a risk and then people will give you a chance. And when you are given that chance it is up to you what you make of it.
