Watson interview

Watson interview
The website from Switzerland, Watson had 15 minutes for their interview with Daniel in promotion of Swiss Army Man.

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

Daniel Radcliffe, thinking of your own death, what bothers you?
The idea of lying in an open casket and everyone stare at me! Well, I will not understand, but the thought gets me done.

And the decay?
It is of course ugly, but also reassuring. I turn to the earth slowly and something new comes out. I feel directly useful.

How did you prepare to play a movie in Swiss Army Man? Did you visit a morgue or talk to doctors?
I play a very living dead. That's why I did not have to be too precise technically. The rigor mortis of course played a big role, especially when it came to speaking, but otherwise I did it all with my imagination. My main concern was to credibly play dead without acting like a zombie. But then I saw myself in the mirror with wig and make-up, I rolled my eyes and I knew: Okay, I look very, very dead, I do not have much to play anymore.

You could certainly benefit from previous film experiences. In "A Young Doctor's Notebook" and "Victor Frankenstein" which had a lot to do with human anatomy.
Certainly! And with animal! I'll never forget how I was given a big ox heart to play around at the "Frankenstein" shoot. I said: Oh, okay, great! But what prepared me best for "Swiss Army Man" is "Harry Potter". All the stunts I had to do for "Potter" translate neatly into "Swiss Army Man". I love to do stunts and everything physical, but when I do a movie like "Kill Your Darlings" about the Beat Poets of the 60s, there is not much action. I love the total use of the body.

Well, Kill Your Darlings has a gay love scene for you.

And I had to answer so many questions! I always said: people, we are actors! This is our job and we feel good, there is nothing strange or special!

Even "Swiss Army Man" is already more than a "Bromance", right?
Although: I am neither heterosexual nor gay in the movie. I'm just dead. But there's this kiss ... I'm so happy: Our movie should be in Russia soon. The Russians did not seem to notice how gay it is. I feel very subversive right now.

I do not mean the kiss, there are much more glaring scenes between you and Paul Dano. Was that never uncomfortable?

We got used to it very quickly that we have to become very intimate. The very first day, Paul had to grab my jaw and pretend to shave my teeth. We knew: Okay, we will be very, very close.

It's a movie about a kind of hereafter. You are an atheist. How does this work?
One of my favorite books is Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, a book about the infinity of faith. I am not a militant atheist. I am sure that there is no God as agnostic - but what is for sure? I also regard the hereafter in the "Swiss Army Man" not as a hereafter in a religious sense, but as a phenomenon of magical realism. We simply claim that something is true that does not exist.

They always like to make films about characters and stories that do not exist in our world, right?
Total. And it annoys me that for films like "Harry Potter" or "Horns," where horns grow for me, or "Swiss Army Man," we do not use the beautiful concept of magical realism, as in the literature. At Bulgakov. At Márquez. I read nothing better than their books. In the movie we always talk about fantasy. At the same time, magical realism is much better.

They love to invent, to assert and to surprise.

Yes! I love movies that create worlds and let you in and explore you. In the course of such a creative idea, you can even smuggle big, serious questions to the audience: for example, a far-reaching debate about shame, shame and loneliness could be conducted via the farting corpse in "Swiss Army Man". That's the beauty of filmmaking: dreams do not have to be dreams. We make it a reality.

"Swiss Army Man" is the best thing I've seen this year, a movie that surprises from the first to the last second.
Oh, thanks, thanks, thanks! I am so proud of it! The movie is so beautiful, abominable, stupid, smart, funny ...

... and tender, touching, funny and tragic.

Oh good, good, good, thank you!

What did you think when you read the script?
I just thought, man, is that good! Many people believe that they had to convince me because the story is so completely crazy. That is not true. I read a lot of screenplays, also a lot of crazy screenplays. But with this every page was like an explosion! It was unbelievably original and well written. Everything you see in the movie is written in the script.

You recently said that your favorite movie Death in Game of Thrones would be fierce. Honestly?

It was written somewhere, but what I meant was that I would like to star in an American television series, but then I would have to commit myself again for about seven years. And after the Potter years, I do not feel like it anymore. Not yet. That's why I said: A character in "Game of Thrones," who is killed on her first appearance, would be just right for me.

Updated: Daniel Radcliffe to star in drama Beast of Burden
A new film! The Tracking Board has the exclusive news that Daniel has the starring role as a drug smuggler in the drama Beast of Burden. Jesper Ganslandt is directing and the script comes from Adam Hoelzel. The film is currently in pre-production.

Update:
22nd October 2016. The Hollywood Reporter has more news. Producers are Paul Schiff, Michael Diamond of MGMT Entertainment, and Chad Moore and Jeff Elliott of Green-Light International, which will handle foreign sales. Shooting will start in late November in Savannah, Georgia.
The film focuses on Sean Haggerty (Radcliffe), a character who’s used to lying and keeping secrets from everyone, including the feds, the cartel, and even his wife, Julie. But now he’s ready to get out of this illegal business — after he finishes carrying 55 pounds of cocaine across the border in a small aircraft. Provided he can survive when he lands, of course.

BuzzFeed UK: How to survive a desert island with Daniel Radcliffe

Marion 12 October 2016 1
BuzzFeed UK: How to survive a desert island with Daniel Radcliffe
More from BuzzFeed UK. How to survive a desert island with Daniel Radcliffe. Here's the other interview in promotion of Swiss Army Man in case you missed it.

What three books would you take with you?
Dan: The Master and Margarita, because it’s my favourite book, and I feel like I could reread it a lot more times. Probably then also some sort of survival guide, so I could, y’know, find out how to make a fire, because I definitely can’t. And what about…a dictionary, or an encyclopaedia, there we go, so I can look stuff up, like, “Is this berry going to kill me?”

What three types of snack would you take with you?
Dan: The three types of snack I’d take with me on a desert island would be… Some sort of bottomless bucket of ice cream that never runs out. Some sort of meat. Like, I don’t know, bacon. Is that a snack? Do you just have bowls of bacon at parties? Yeah, bacon. Ice cream, bacon, and something else that’s super healthy. Cheese. Some nice cheese.

I’m on a desert island, who am I trying to impress?


OK, this is a stretch. If you could take a phone or tablet with you that had enough battery life to watch one film, but you weren’t allowed to call anyone because you don’t have any service, what movie would it be?
Dan: For similar reasons to Master and Margarita, there’s a film called Matters of Life and Death, with David Niven. It was made in the late forties, and if you haven’t seen it, you have an incredible treat ahead of you. It’s one of the most magical and beautiful, amazing films ever made.

You also have enough battery life to listen to one album. What would it be?
Dan: One album?! Oh, my god. That’s really hard. There’s part of me that just wants to pick my favourite album, but then there’s a part of me that wants to be like, “What’s good on a beach?”

I’ll go with the Pixies and “Doolittle”, because there’s a good mix of stuff on there.


Would you rather have to hunt or forage for your food?
Dan: I guess I’d have to hunt, rather than forage, because the things I’d be foraging would be like, fruit and nuts, and that’s going to get really boring really quickly. So if I wanted actual meat – which, as you can tell, is a theme for me – then I would have to hunt.

If you could choose one famous person to be stuck on a desert island with, who would it be?
Dan: Somebody very strong. The Rock! So, you know, he could carry stuff and help me survive. He seems like he’d be very capable in that kind of environment. I’m not really built for that sort of environment. And, you know, if I needed stuff from the tops of trees I could stand on his shoulders and climb, I’m quite agile. I could also get into small places that he couldn’t. I feel like it would work well.

Daniel: "I'm afraid of not being able to be on film sets for the rest of my life"

Daniel: "I'm afraid of not being able to be on film sets for the rest of my life"
Below you find two interviews you could have missed in promotion of Swiss Army Man and Imperium. Both films are out in UK cinemas now. Thanks to AskMen UK and BBC Three for sharing.

Then you also could have missed InStyle UK's article "11 times Daniel Radcliffe was a totally stellar guy", thanks InStyle.

AskMen UK - full interview here

What are you afraid of?

Not being able to be on film sets for the rest of my life – if somebody turns up tomorrow morning and says “Oh, I’m sorry, you’ll never be able to act again, we’re taking your career away from you.” I know it’s not a rational fear, but just that general fear of, I guess, failure and not being able to do the thing that I love doing. I think it’s a broader fear that a lot of actors have when everyone’s like, “Oh my god, I’m going to get found out and then no one’s going to put me in things, and then I’ll never be able to do the things that I love.”

When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday, watching the Brownlee brothers chuck each other over the line – that ended me, I was in bits. To me, that’s everything that’s most exciting about sport, those moments when you see these amazingly talented people that we tend to view almost as being separate species, because they’re physically so different from the rest of us, suddenly looking so incredibly human but still extraordinary. I was a wreck.

BBC Three - full interview here.

Hi, Dan. In Imperium, you play an FBI agent who infiltrates a radical white supremacy terrorist group. In Swiss Army Man, you play a dead body who washes up on shore. Um, aren’t you tired of getting so typecast? [Laughing] Yeah. It’s a real issue. I think weird begets weird. The more interesting stuff I do, the more interesting scripts I get sent. But, I’m just very lucky that people give me these opportunities to do these weird, different things.

You shave your head in Imperium and get your notably hairy arse out in Swiss Army Man…

[Thinking]… Right, yes. Or is it the other way round…?

Would you have rather grown your hair and shaved your bum?

Ha. No. I’ve shown my arse so much,* I really don’t care any more. I really enjoyed the shaved head. It was fucking great. Everyone should do it once, to see how easy it is.

New project for Daniel Radcliffe: The play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

Marion 06 October 2016 0
New project for Daniel Radcliffe: The play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
Yes The West End theatre news is here: Daniel will star in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard at London's The Old Vic Theatre. The 1966 play focuses in on two characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet. This will be its 50th anniversary production. It's directed by David Leveaux and it will also star Joshua McGuire who also worked with Daniel on one episode of A Young Doctor's Notebook.

The production starts 25th February 2017 and will run until 29th April 2017. The opening night will be on 7th March 2017.

For info and tickets: oldvictheatre.com. General booking starts Wednesday 2nd November 2016, 12 noon.
Half a century after its premiere on The Old Vic stage, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, the play that made a young Tom Stoppard's name overnight, returns to The Old Vic in its 50th anniversary celebratory production.

Against the backdrop of Shakespeare's Hamlet, this mind-bending situation comedy sees two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz (Daniel Radcliffe) and Guildenstern (Joshua McGuire), take centre stage. Increasingly out of their depth, the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of this iconic drama. In a literary hall of mirrors, Stoppard's brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth sees us witness the ultimate identity crisis.

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

Daniel Radcliffe, do you sometimes find Lord Voldemort, the epitome of evil in Harry Potter, in nightmares?
No. I hardly ever have any dreams and certainly no nightmares. But there seems to be a dark side in your soul.

Or how do you explain your inclination to roles in dark movies?

That's not so much inside of me, but rather in the scripts. The dark is simply more interesting than glittering luck. But that's one of the great things about my profession: You get a valve for dark sides in one. And that's fun.

In "Swiss Army Man", you are now constantly releasing gases as an awakened corpse. Will you ever be able to fart again without thinking of this role?

(Laughs) Hardly. After the premiere at the Sundance Festival one should have let loose a massive fart in the public toilet, whereupon the waiting party broke into enormous laughter. When the film has achieved that, its purpose is fulfilled. That makes me happy.

The plot is a mixture of Robinson Crusoe and "waiting for Godot". , ,

, , , I think this description is great. , ,

, , , would you like to play on stage in a Beckett piece?

Absolute! When I first saw "Waiting for Godot," it was like the first "Star Wars" movie: unlike anything else.

You were a child star. As a main challenge, you once mentioned - along with the subject of drugs and alcohol - the development of an identity that was not linked to fame. How does that succeed?

It takes a lot of dealing with yourself. Fortunately I'm a man of very simple amusements like hanging out with friends, watching movies, reading. And I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by great people. So I know: I can be happy without being famous. But not without my job. I love him over everything, practice him since I was nine, and know nothing else.

Four years ago you are said to have said to the Daily Mirror. , ,

, , , definitely not to them directly. , , ,

, , In any case, they were quoted as saying that they had drunk with groupies during Harry Potter's time.
No, I certainly never said that.

And that you had an alcohol problem?

That's true.

Do you regret that you publicized it?

Yes.

Did you want to get rid of the image of brave Harry with the confession?

Not at all. First, I found that the smaller the gap between what I am and what people think of me, the better. Today I know: whatever information you give, it gets twisted. Second, I thought it would have to work so I could leave it behind. But then it became the main theme of the next four years in the media.

You have recently publicly criticized that in your job women are disadvantaged.

Also female roles in Hollywood are strongly influenced externally. But slowly it improves - also, as there are more directors.

Were not you also favored, as the role of Harry Potter was much more prominent than that of Hermione?
My role was more extensive, of course, but Hermione is an extraordinarily remarkable character!

How good are the chances of being seen again as Harry Potter on the screen in a possible sequel?
Maybe in thirty years, who knows. But certainly not in the near future. I've worked hard to do something completely different and do it with a lot of fun.

Who, like me, saw all eight Harry Potter films, almost believes you have accompanied them growing up. Something strange, right?
This is sweet above all else, although of course you did not see a true key moment. There was only one in which life covered a film role: I met my current partner Erin Darke in 2012 shooting "Kill Your Darlings". When we flirt on the screen in the library, that actually reflects real life.

Do you see something of Zurich these days?

There is hardly any time for that. I have to come back once, when I'm without obligations, it has to be great. And the fans here are absolutely wonderful.

There were even more on your performance at Bellevue than at Hugh Grant two days earlier. You are the star of this festival.
That is very exciting. But really: Here live the most considerate people on the planet. When we left the hotel yesterday, about fifty people were waiting. In London or America, that would go wrong without any barriers, here it ran smoothly. Never in such situations have I experienced that people are so mindful of each other and to me. I know it must be boring for you Swiss to always hear from Englishmen how polite you all are. But you are just incredibly nice!
