Digital Spy interview: Daniel Radcliffe reveals his first Harry Potter memory

Digital Spy interview: Daniel Radcliffe reveals his first Harry Potter memory
It's 15 years today since the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in US (and UK) cinemas. Digital Spy talked with Daniel to reminisce about the first film.

The thing that initially got him excited on the first day on set.

"The first few days on the train platform in Goathland, which was also where they film Heartbeat, I think… I remember being there and them saying, 'This is where they film Heartbeat', and I was like 'No Shit! Really? Awesome!' That's a TV show I'd heard of as a kid."
He was not quite prepared for how the film would change his life.
"No one ever sat us down and said, 'This might happen, this might happen'... The first time I really got the sense of that was the first premiere and the first time I got recognised in the street by somebody who went crazy. I was really frightened."
"After that I was like, if I can deal with that then I'm okay. I think my parents were really good in how they dealt with it. Whether they were freaked out or not, they'd turn round to me and be like, 'Isn't life funny! What a weird thing all this stuff's happening!'
"And I think that gave me a good perspective on it rather than me thinking that all this was happening because I'm so amazing, or it was something to be feared or negative - so they gave me a nice healthy attitude towards it."
He never sat down to watch any of the films, although it turned out to be impossible to avoid them altogether.
"I saw a bit of one the other day," he says. "I was in Greece on holiday and there was a film channel that we were watching because it was the only thing in English and it came on and I was like, 'OK, now we've got to find something else to watch'. But I think I watched a couple of scenes and I was like, 'OK, don't need to watch anymore'. One day I probably will watch them back if I have kids, so I'll do that then, but hopefully they'll enjoy them and that'll distract me from my own performance."

ZFF 2016: interview
Another Zurich Film Festival (ZFF) interview in promotion of Swiss Army Man. He received a swiss army knife from's journalist. The first, but not the only one (see also this interview).

Interview page.

In Swiss Army Man hast du viele Szenen ohne Dummy gedreht. Welche Szene stellte die grösste Herausforderung dar?
Wohl diejenige zu Beginn des Films, als wir im Wasser sind. Alle meinen, es sei ein Dummy. Aber Paul Dano ritt tatsächlich auf mir. Unter mir lag ein Floss und ich streckte die Arme aus, die mit Kabel befestigt wurden. Ich versuchte meinen Rücken so stark wie möglich zu krümmen. Die Kamera wurde so positioniert, dass man davon nichts sieht. Dann setzte sich Paul auf mich und sie zogen uns durchs Wasser.

Imperium: UK DVD & Blu-ray artwork
Signature Entertainment will release Imperium on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD in the UK on 7th November. Below the artwork.

Inspired by real events and the experiences of ex-FBI agent Michael German, IMPERIUM follows Nate Foster, an idealistic young FBI agent who is selected to go undercover amongst a group of white supremacists suspected of initiating a terrorist plot. Immersed in a deeply unsettling, hate-filled world, Nate must fight to maintain control of his own beliefs and principles whilst working to identify the threat and keeping his true identity and motives a secret.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe as Foster in what is being hailed as his more powerful, transformative role to date, and featuring an outstanding supporting performance from Toni Collette as his wisecracking fellow FBI agent, IMPERIUM also features a stellar supporting cast, including Burn Gorman, Tracy Letts, Nestor Carbonell, and Sam Trammell.

Ragussis wrote IMPERIUM alongside Michael German and with German’s own experiences in the FBI informing the script, the result is an exhilarating, unforgettable thriller that underscores the fact that Radcliffe has long since stopped needing the help of a boy wizard to deliver his own searing dose of cinematic magic.
