Fangoria Q&A

Marion 31 October 2014 0
Fangoria Q&A
Q&A: Daniel on Horns and Victor Frankenstein.

FANGORIA: How did you initially get involved with HORNS?
DANIEL RADCLIFFE: It was one of the scripts my agent sent to me, and he said, “Let’s see what you think.” It wasn’t an offer or anything; it was more like, “If you like it, we’ll get a meeting with the director.” I read HORNS and, when you’re an actor, you’re constantly looking for that script. You’ll always get a script that’s good and you’ll go, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s good… maybe,” and there are very few scripts like HORNS where they’re asking for a lot of time in advance, which is hard to do unless you really love something. And when I read HORNS, it was one of those scripts that made me want to get up, bang on the table and say, “No one else can play this. I must play this part.”
That was the sign that I wanted to do HORNS; I didn’t want anyone else playing this role [laughs]. I had that feeling with the script very quickly, so then I had a meeting with Alex [Aja] and that went really well. We had a long conversation about The Devil in literature and pop culture, and it turned out I knew a weird amount about that; enough to come off as knowledgeable. But we talked about how The Devil has been generally a much more interesting character than God, and a much more charismatic one, which is why he turns up all the time .

Did you know that when John Milton wrote PARADISE LOST that he felt so bad, as a religious man, for having made The Devil into such an interesting character that he wrote PARADISE REGAINED to make Jesus the star? The problem is that one was really boring and no one liked it, so it was not as successful. So we talked about that as well as THE MASTER AND MARGARITA, which is one of my favorite books and The Devil is important in that story as well. We talked about The Devil a lot, and when you respond to a script that like, it’s very easy to be like, “I love this, and I love this,” and the process becomes a lot easier to talk about.

So we got off to a great start, but I really was won over when Alex showed me these photos that were made to look like portraits. They were very vibrant, intense and cool. When the director sits you down and shows you a mood board, and you see exactly what you were thinking, that’s when you go, “Oh man, this is going to be really cool.” I didn’t have the part by that point, but I really wanted to be a part of HORNS because it looked really cool. But then I read the book, and things started to fly after that meeting, really.

FANG: HORNS is a very hard film to define; it’s part love story, part crime story, part horror story, etc. What was the film exactly in your eyes?
RADCLIFFE: That’s the thing; I think we’re obsessed with defining things and the thing I loved about HORNS is that it was very hard to define. I loved the fact that it jumped between genres and was really, really funny. To me, though, the most important aspect where if we didn’t have it right, the film doesn’t work, is the romance. We had to carry off the love story well, and when you say, “a love story in a horror movie,” as funny as that might be, that’s what I think it needed.

Particularly, it was most important that we nail that scene in the diner where my character goes to propose to Merrin, especially considering that we see that scene from so many different perspectives. It’s such a key moment in the film, and unless you care and really feel how perfect that relationship between Ig and Merrin was, and how much of a gut-punch it is to have that ripped away from him, then the film doesn’t work. Ig’s quest for revenge wouldn’t make sense, and you’d ask, “Why are you doing that?” It’s those moments and that storyline which elevates the film from just being a really fun, entertaining movie with some horror elements to having a real place of emotional power. Hopefully, HORNS will be the kind of movie that sticks with people.

FANG: Speaking to that point, there’s a theme of uncovering hidden emotional truths that runs through the film. Sometimes, it’s used for comedic effect, but other times, especially in Ig’s chats with his parents, the film takes a really tragic, heartbreaking turn. Was there any scene of this in particular that you were wary of approaching or perhaps felt like could hit a nerve personally?
RADCLIFFE: No, but actually, those kinds of scenes are actually kind of welcome when you’re an actor. When things get close to home and you start to face down those fears, that’s when it’s really easy, actually, and acting feels very natural. That’s something everyone can tap into: the fear of disappointing your family, no matter what form that takes. People can relate to that fear, and the idea of your parents saying those awful things to you is so horrendous, but I think that’s why actors are really lucky: we’re allowed to have a very healthy relationship with our own dysfunction, so we get to know it and we can use it.

As an actor, I can be at peace with that dysfunction and that can really be helpful in the rest of my life. In a way, that’s also what Ig does throughout the course of HORNS: he gives people permission to feel these dark, awful things and realize that they’re all human and normal. Just because something you feel isn’t moral doesn’t mean you’re not moral; it’s how you act upon those feelings which chooses to dictate that. But that kind of catharsis is really helpful as an actor, even though one of my biggest acting challenges in HORNS was making those reactions feel gradual. Those first bits in the hospital with Ig are a bit disconcerting but it’s also quite funny, but when you get to Ig seeing his mom, and she says she doesn’t want to see him ever again, that’s an awful thing for someone to say. You have to give yourself room emotionally, because we’re only a half hour into the movie and it’s only going to get a lot worse for Ig. So it was like making sure you did justice for the scene you were in, while always making sure you didn’t screw yourself for those later emotional moments.

FANG: The role of Ig Perrish also required you to become quite demonic at times. Were there ever times during certain scenes where you might have felt that you were going too far or were those the moments you wanted to play more in while you had the opportunity?

RADCLIFFE: Yeah, absolutely. Like the scene where I go to torture Terry, where I have the snake around my neck? That’s a scene I’d never done before, where I’m being asked to be really ominous and frightening. I think my natural reaction is to downplay stuff and not go particularly over the top, but Alex and I were on the same page most of the time. The battle with HORNS was making sure we got all of the tones right and making sure they didn’t conflict with each other, so I really put myself in Alex’s hands for those moments. If Alex said he was getting what he needed, I always trusted that, and I never have a problem with “going for it” on set. I don’t remember Alex having to reign me in on set, but you’d have to ask him.

FANG: As a genre publication, we have to ask: what can you tell us about Paul McGuigan’s VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN? Can you tell us anything about the project?
RADCLIFFE: I’ve seen a very rough version of VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN, and it’s really good. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a very new version of FRANKENSTEIN. I’m very pleased with how they portray Igor because there’s certain things people picture when you say you’re playing Igor. You want to live up to that and do that well, but you also want to make something unexpected and different. I think we’ve done that.

VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN is much like an adventure movie, and it’s less of a straight horror film than previous FRANKENSTEIN movies have been. But there are a lot of nods to past incarnations of FRANKENSTEIN. James McAvoy, in my mind, is now the definitive Victor Frankenstein, and I think he’ll be that in everyone else’s mind shortly.

Metro US interview

Metro US interview
Metro US interview with Daniel in promotion of Horns.

The allure of the devil: “It’s interesting how many times the devil appears in pop culture, literature, plays, movies — it’s a lot more than God. I can think of “Bruce Almighty.” Other than that I’m kind of struggling. The devil is a very charismatic character, and always has been. He used to be an angel and fell from that. There is the potential for good and evil within him. There seems something relatable about that, like he’s a real human being, instead of God, who is great all the time.”

His favorite fictitious devil: “‘The Master and Margarita’ is my favorite version of the devil, because it’s the devil as an amalgamation of separate parts that are distilled into separate entities. There’s a called named Roland, who’s dressed in black, but there’s also Koroviev, who’s this seven-feet-tall, and there’s a black cat who’s five-feet-tall. They’re his retinue. It’s just a wonderful depiction of the devil tearing through Moscow in 1925. [He and director Alexandre Aja] also talked about ‘Sympathy for the Devil,’ and the idea of the devil as a timeless, shapeshifting being who was ever-present.”

His need to do "Horns"
: “I responded to the script very viscerally. I always know it’s right to pursue something when I feel like if I was to ever see another actor playing this part, it would be like watching my girlfriend kissing someone else. It’s that jealous knot in your stomach. Soon as I read it, I knew if I watched someone else play this part I would be really unhappy.”

He had to convince Aja to cast him: “I went to Alex and just sold the hell out of myself. I let him know what I was going to do for this movie and how hard I would work, because I knew he was thinking of [the lead] being slightly older. I just went in and said, ‘I know you think I’m too old for this. Please let me tell you why I think you’re wrong.’”

Why it’s not a horror:“There is a modern obsession — maybe it’s not modern, maybe I’m being too hard on modernity — but there is an obsession with categorizing things and putting things into a genre. You could say it’s a horror film, because Alex is the director. I actually wonder if Alex wasn’t the director if it would be called horror with such frequency. I think it might not be. It has elements of horror and slasher horror. But generally speaking it’s just a beautiful f—ing love story. It’s just a drama, really. It’s about a classic battle of good and evil, except it’s all going on inside one person. The dilemma of the film isn’t who did it but what is he going to do when he finds out who did it. Is he going to stick to his path of anger and violence, or is he going to do what the person he’s ostensibly grieving for would have wanted, which is to stop the violence and hatred.”

Playing a character who’s intense and not always nice:“If you can have someone doing terrible things who the audience is still rooting for? That’s almost the ideal! His intensity, the range of his emotions made me want to do it, from the comedy at the beginning of the film to how horrible the scene is where he’s torturing his brother. There was a real mobility to him, and a real romance about him, in the sense of being pure at heart. There’s something beautiful and painful watching this get tested and destroyed and rebuilt. “

His favorite horror films:“‘The Shining’ would be the first horror film that ever really scared me in a deep way. Not that it just made me jump, but it creeped me the f— out. Also, I watched this because I was working with the director, but James Watkins, who directed ‘Woman in Black,’ his first movie is called ‘Eden Lake,’ with Michael Fassbender and Kelly Reilly. That’s a f—ing great movie, because it could conceivably happen in real life. The antagonists in it are just some horrible f—ing kids who f— up this family’s weekend. It also has maybe the nastiest, bleakest ending to a film I’ve ever seen. What I et him James, I said, ‘How did you have the balls to end you f—ing movie like that?’”

But his favorite-ever film is the 1946 British film “A Matter of Life and Death” (which is indeed mind-meltingly brilliant)
:“That’s a movie I’ve watched with every girlfriend I’ve ever been with. It’s a real moment of, ‘If you don’t like this I might not be able to go out with you.’”

Digital Spy Q&A

Marion 27 October 2014 0
Digital Spy Q&A
Digital Spy Q&A about Horns, Harry Potter legacy and more.

Would you say this is the darkest role you've played on screen, if not on stage?
Equus can probably give it a run for its money, yeah. In fact, Equus is probably just the bleakest thing I've ever done - there is not a ray of hope at the end of Equus, it's just like 'You're gonna f**k your kids up, there's nothing you can do to stop it'. That's kind of the theme that emerged after 200 performances of that play! Sorry, can I swear in this interview?

Totally fine, we can star it out.
Okay, good. But yeah, I think you're absolutely right, on film Horns is the darkest. Even if it's not as overtly 'make you jump' scary as Woman in Black was, it's sort of a general feeling of unease which is ramped up in intensity throughout. I love the darkness of the film and I think what makes it special is the fact that that is intertwined so easily with the comedy and the romance, and that the love story is what anchors it.

There's a surreal quality that links all those elements together.
Yeah, I always saw it as being proper magical realism, where there's one crazy thing that's happening and everything else around it is very grounded. I'm sure when you're sending out a script like this, you know that if someone responds to it, they're the kind of person you want to work with. I think that's what Alex [Aja, the film's director] felt when he met me, because I responded so strongly to it, and also because I talked him round!

I know he was thinking of casting someone in his late twenties, and I was 23 when I shot it, so when I met him I just said "I know you think I'm too young for this, and let me take the next hour to tell you why you're wrong!"I realise that makes me sound super pushy, which I'm not, but when there's a part in front of you that you really want, sometimes you do just have to stand up and bang on the table and draw a bit of attention to yourself. Stating your ambition goes a long way sometimes.

You're doing an American accent here, but your voice is also notably different, it sounds much deeper. Was that a conscious choice?
Not really, I think that's honestly... My voice changes anyway, according to the situation, all of ours do – when I'm on a red carpet I'll go up here [does an energetic RP voice] and I'll be incredibly posh, and when I'm relaxed I'll be talking like I am now. So there definitely wasn't a conscious choice to deepen my voice, so much as I think I wanted to make Ig sound like he's had a rough night, and he's kind of always had a rough night!

Seeing the final version on screen, was there anything that surprised you or that changed significantly from the script?
The only thing I'm really unhappy with is that in this country, we don't get to see the exploding head. There's an exploding head – I don't know if it's in the American version, I'm sure it's in the French version – and it's so good! It's the best exploding head scene since Scanners. It'll be on the DVD, but that's the one thing I'm unhappy about.

I know some people are talking about the ending saying that they didn't really get it, or think it's too crazy, but frankly my response to that is 'How would you end it?' How, after that insanity that you've just watched for two and a half hours? It seemed totally fitting to me, it's the logical conclusion to everything else that's been happening.

I know you've said you don't really keep in touch with your Potter co-stars, but did you see Emma Watson's UN speech?
Yeah. It's great, she's always been incredibly bright, so it's no surprise that she's now channeling that in areas aside from acting. We're not in much contact, but I'm very pleased. But I was thinking, I just got asked by another journalist 'Are you a feminist?' and I was just like... Is there a strange thing at the moment where you have to come out as a feminist? As I said to them, I'm egalitarian for everything so of course, yes is the answer, but there's been this flood of it. I've been asked if I'm a feminist so many times recently, and I'm just like 'Yes, yes, for god's sake yes! Is there something that I give off that says I'm not?' It's interesting.

Are you looking forward to seeing Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as a fan, not having to be involved?
Yeah, it'll be slightly bizarre but it'll be great - I'm excited to see what they do with them, and I also have no idea what they're doing with them, which is exciting. It is amazing because we're three years removed from the last film coming out, and it's not that I would have expected it to die down by now, but every time I go to a premiere there's Gryffindor ties and Ravenclaw badges and stuff.
There's still such a hunger for it that I think it's kind of wonderful they're continuing to expand the world. But having said that, there's a sense of relief in just being able to sit back and watch and enjoy it with everyone else.

If you just go out in London on Halloween there are always Gryffindor and Slytherin scarfs nearby.
Oh yeah, maybe that's what I should do this year, that should be my Halloween challenge – I should go out in a mask and try to get pictures with as many Harry Potters as I can. At Comic-Con, there weren't... There might have been a couple of people in Gryffindor cloaks and stuff, but not that many, there was not a strong Harry Potter presence at Comic-Con that I saw. So come on, Potter fans!

Movie Tie-In edition of Horns (UK)
Below you find the cover of the UK Movie Tie-In edition of the book Horns by Joe Hill. Released by publisher Gollancz - Orion Books on 23rd October 2014.

Pages: 448 pages.
ISBN-10: 057512069X
ISBN-13: 978-0575120693

Now a major Hollywood film starring Daniel Radcliffe: read it first, if you dare ...
Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache ... and a pair of horns growing from his temples.
Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic.

Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect. He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty.

Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power - with just a touch he can see people's darkest desires - to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge; it's time the devil had his due.

Daniel attended the MCM London Comic Con yesterday to promote Horns. There is a short video from the Horns panel below. Afterwards there was a signing for a select group of fans. Find more photos via Mcm Buzz magazine on Facebook and via contactmusic.com. Thanks to Yaffa Meskell photography (photo below) & Steve Munden (photo from the signing) for sharing photos with Daniel J Radcliffe Holland on Twitter. Then last but not least there's also a photo from the signing on Daniel's official Google+ page.
Daniel revealed that he only read Joe Hill’s book upon which Horns is based after he got the part of Ig. “It’s a fantastic book and I’m sure we have many fans of the book here.” He revealed that things have changed in this adaptation but declared that fans of the book “will love the film.”

When he initially read the script for Horns, Daniel focused a little too much on the comedy, and was excited about one particular sequence. “When Ig goes to the hospital and tries to get the horns removed, I just thought it was really, really funny.”
