Men's Journal interview
Men's Journal's interview with Daniel about Jungle.

What were your thoughts when you first heard Yossi’s story?
The story was so insane. I went in assuming that some of it had to be bullshit. I just didn’t know how much. I am a skeptic in that way. If I see “based on a true story” my guard goes up immediately. Sometimes you look at a script like that and want to ask the writer, “Are we sort of lying here?” Then I read Yossi’s book and found that if anything the script is actually just a taste of what actually happened. There are events that happened that you couldn’t put into a film because first of all, there is probably a limit to the punishment you are allowed to put onscreen, and there are things that happened to him that you wouldn’t buy at all.

What was the most shocking part of the journey to you?
There is a moment in the movie where I become aware that there is this ever-growing bump on my head, which I am forced to lance and cut my skin open. I pull out this creature that has been burrowing away in my skin. In the script that was stomach churning to read and just awful to think about, and then you read the book and find out that Yossi had about 20 of them under his skin that he had to take out. That is insane.

Did you speak with Yossi before starting the role?
I got to chat with him over Skype for hours. If you talk to Yossi about his time out there, he will tell you that he did not sleep for the entire three weeks. Now you and I can’t believe that. How can you not sleep? And to communicate that level of stress in a film is incredibly hard.

How did that translate into the filming process?
Listen I don’t want to go on talking about how much I struggled, because I was on a movie set and this actually happened to a guy. I got to go back to a nice hotel at the end of the night. That being said, it was a tough shoot for the cast, the crew, and myself. Going in I don’t think anyone expected for it to be a walk in the park.

How were able to get into the character’s mindset?
I was trying to make myself uncomfortable the entire time, and I mostly did that by eating virtually nothing. I knew that there is a psychological effect that happens when hunger become a permanent state, that allowed me to understand what he was feeling. I would have felt horrible doing these scenes, and then going back to the hotel for a steak dinner.

How little were you eating?
There was a three-week span where I was having one protein bar and a skillet of white fish with an unreal amount of hot sauce. For the last two days I didn’t eat at all. I don’t know if it truly shows on screen, but I was feeling it and that helped me get to where I needed.

What was it like to shoot in the locations you traveled to?
The places where we were filming were very difficult to get to, especially with camera equipment. Trucks couldn’t get there, so the only way to get our gear up there was by hiking it up or by donkey. It was crazy. The group got close very quick because of this experience in Colombia and Australia.

Did you take precautions for being in those environments?
One day we were filming near rapids, and we hired a group of guys who were part of the Colombian national kayaking team. They were probably the fittest people I have ever seen in my life. If a piece of equipment fell into the river they would jump from a waterfall into the river, chase down the equipment and then paddle against the current back to our location. It was amazing to watch. Then we had a safety supervisor on set, named Sam Elia, whose job was to jump in and take care of dangerous creatures when they were around. So on that day that there were snakes around, or any other sort of threat, he would just jump in and take care of it. I was glad we had him around. [Laughs]

Edit: The link above is gone, find the interview here.

ANI:  How was it shooting in an actual Jungle?
DR:  It was great! It was definitely a tough shoot though, particularly for the crew. There were parts of the set inaccessible to trucks which meant that all the camera equipment had to be lugged out by the camera crew or on the backs of these donkey’s we had, which is one of the only animals that could travese those sort of roads. But, yeah it was a kind of crazy, tough filming experience but it was really enjoyable and the cast and crew were great and we like, just kinda got in there together and dug in. It was good!

 ANI:  Hey, till the wheels fall off, that’s what I always say. Let me switch gears for our final question. You have a few notches in your acting belt when it comes to horror, but what is YOUR favorite scary movie?
DR:  My favorite scary movie…I think…I think the thing that I remember being really absolutely terrified by as a kid was probably ’The Shining’.  I saw that when I was really quite young and like, a lot of the imagery in that film has that great quality of just being fucking terrifying even though you don’t quite know why and the fact that it’s all so hard to understand makes it even more terrifying. In terms of creating a sense of evil being all around you, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a film like that so well done.

But yeah, my natural inclination is for much less good horror than that, like B movie Syfy channel horror movies, that’s my happy place where I can really relax and watch them. I’m probably into a lot less good horror than you are. ::Laughs::

TIME magazine interview

TIME magazine interview
TIME magazine sat down with Daniel in London to talk about Jungle. You can find more US interviews here.

TIME: What drew you to Jungle?
Daniel Radcliffe: The story itself is a survival story, but the thing I found very moving is the notion that there is this kernel inside people that refuses to die. Obviously in this situation, it is in a man surviving alone in the jungle, but I think this indestructible will to live applies to people in war or under terrible regimes and immense hardships around the world. I like to think there is something fundamental in all of us which can get activated when you’re really pushed to an extreme.

How would you survive if you were lost in the jungle for three weeks? I'd probably last 15 minutes.
I hope to God I never will be thrown into that situation. Like you, I'd probably survive really badly. I didn’t ever do the Boy Scouts, I can’t light a fire… If I got lost with somebody who was experienced with that kind of stuff I feel I would survive very well — I’d be a good helper. But if you were lost with me you’d be without a hope, really, especially if we were somewhere near water as I would probably drown.

Can you not swim?
I’m not a strong swimmer at all. I can swim, but I can’t float or tread water. You know those films like Open Water and stuff? That’s my actual worst nightmare.

So you’d never do a shark film?
I’ve done a lot of filming in water so I don’t mind being in and around it. But I don’t think I could do a shark film. The amount of water work that would be required and the amount of time in the open water — I don't think I'd be happy about that.

How much time did you actually spend in the jungle when making the movie?
We spent about three or four weeks in the Colombian jungle and about three weeks in Australia. It was a tough film for the crew; they had to lug heavy camera equipment in and out of the jungle, which was about a two-mile trek. There’s something bonding about hard shoots like that, when you feel like you’re all in it together.

Where did you stay for most of the filming?
In Colombia we stayed in one of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever been in. It felt like the lair of a Bond villain, in the least evil way possible.

Did it feel strange going from being on set to these luxurious surroundings?
Yes, very. I’m not a method actor at all, but I just felt like it would feel weird, too incongruous, to be playing this guy who went through this very harrowing time while living this incredibly comfortable, beautiful, luxurious life when not on set. So, while I was staying in the hotel I tried to not eat just to keep my general energy a bit down.

How closely did you work with Yossi Ghinsberg, whose memoir Jungle is based on?
Prior to filming we spoke for about four hours on Skype over separate conversations, where I just picked his brains. Yossi was on set a lot, particularly for the filming in Colombia. When you’re making a film about somebody’s life, that person would be well within their rights to step in and say, "I didn’t do it like that" or "that didn’t happen like that," but he didn’t. He was really supportive of the whole process and accepted that certain things were going to be changed from how they were in reality.

Your recent movies have been relatively low-budget. Was it a conscious decision to move away from big studio films and pursue these more indie roles?
I’m in a position where I don’t have to do anything I don’t want to; the only reason I have to do a script is because I’m passionate about it and I’m of the opinion that the majority of the really interesting scripts I read at the moment are not being done by studios. This is good because you get a huge amount of creative freedom, but bad because indies are frustratingly hard to actually get made. I’ve had a couple of genuine disappointments in the years since Potter, but I’ve been really lucky with things like Kill Your Darlings, Swiss Army Man and Imperium.

Are there any particular directors you'd like to work with?
I have a wish-list of directors like Wes Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson, the Coen Brothers, Martin McDonagh and Quentin Tarantino — although I don’t know what role there is for me in a Tarantino film, but hey, who knows! Equally I love working with first-time directors, like Daniel Scheinert and Dan Kwan on Swiss Army Man and John Krokidas on Kill Your Darlings.

Are there genres you'd like to try?
I’m signed on to do a movie called Guns Akimbo, which is the first time I’ll have done a proper action movie. Generally speaking, I don’t think there’s role for me in a lot of action movies and ones I feel like playing. But I read this one and it felt perfect. It’s the way a guy like me can fit into an action movie and it’s really good fun.

What do you mean by a guy like you?
I mean like not someone like Dwayne Johnson or the Hemsworths, who as well as being really good actors are just made to be action movie stars. Although I am fit and strong for my height, generally when I read scripts about some guy who beats the sh-t out of loads of people with his bare hands, I just don't know whether an audience would buy me doing that.

Could you see yourself getting involved with another big franchise in the future?
I absolutely could see myself doing another, but it would depend on the script. It would be fun to do another one of those crazy studio movies. It was amazing to start off with Potter and there’s also a lot that I don’t miss about [it]. I would never balk at going into a franchise, but I’m not racing to get there now either.

If asked, would you make an appearance in Fantastic Beasts?
I don’t think so? But again, if it was something that I thought would be fun to do and I’d enjoy, then great. Again, I’m not racing to go back there.

Are you beginning to get recognized for more than just Harry Potter?

Most people recognize me for Potter, I’m under no illusions about that. But I do get people saying how much they enjoyed Swiss Army Man or Imperium and that’s always really pleasing.
I have to say, I was watching John Oliver the other night and he was doing a whole segment about Equifax, where he said something like, "Equifax sounds like a production of a play where Daniel Radcliffe plays a horse which f-cks a fax machine," referring to my 2007 play, Equus. The fact that me doing Equus 10 years ago has become enough of a cultural reference made me genuinely super happy. I was like, "That’s a joke about me that’s not a Harry Potter joke. I’m very appreciative of that!"

What's it like when you hear yourself referenced like that?
You always have a little moment of tensing and feeling like, "Oh God, what are they going to say?" and then you go, "Ah no, it's fine." It’s funny and odd, but I also find that kind of thing weirdly flattering as well. There's this Cards Against Humanity card which features my name in a fairly sort of dirty context and I’ve signed that card a lot for people at stage doors. I find all that stuff genuinely really funny.
The John Oliver joke was very funny and I certainly didn’t see it as it being mean at all. I’m sure people have made those jokes about me but I haven’t really seen them, thankfully. Generally speaking, if that’s the stuff you were getting angry about, you’re getting angry about the wrong things.

You're not on social media. Why is that?
Well, I’m on Google Plus, but I don’t know if that counts and it’s a stretch to say I’m even on that. I don’t have Twitter because I am too opinionated and would get angry with somebody if they were saying something sh-tty about a friend. I would get into fights with people. I’d be one of those people.

My girlfriend’s on [Twitter] and I went down a rabbit hole on her account the other day. She had retweeted somebody political and I started looking at their tweets, and they’d been in a fight with somebody so I started looking at that fight, and then I ended up finding this super right-wing Twitter account and it was so depressing.

I know that stuff’s there and I think it’s important to acknowledge and talk about, but to actually see how many people out there are being really hateful to each other is exhausting and depressing. And particularly if you’re a girl, whether famous or not famous, social media seems like fresh hell.

Collider

Collider:  When you read this script, did you do so knowing that Yossi was a real person? And what was it that most stood out for you and made you want to sign on?  
DANIEL RADCLIFFE:  First of all, when it’s a true story and you read it and the story is very affecting, you go, “Yeah, I want to be a part of further spreading this story, out into the world. I want to be a part of this story becoming more widely known.” The thing that I find really moving and powerful about it and that really attracted me to it was that I think there’s something really moving about how hard it is to get a human being to give up on their life. He’s up against a jungle and nature and he’s on his own, but it could also apply to somebody in war or battle. The struggle to just keep going is something that I find incredibly moving and powerful, and this sort of story seemed like a wonderful distillation of that into a heightened and intense three-week period. 
 

Not only were you portraying a real person for this, but that person is alive and was around and available for you to talk to. How did you find that experience to be most beneficial? Were there things that you only could have gotten from Yossi that weren’t in the script?  
RADCLIFFE:  Definitely! He said a really depressing thing about hope, which I’m loathe to keep repeating, even though I have been. I found it fascinating because it never would have been what I’d assumed. I’d been working on the assumption that, when you’re in that situation, the hope that you’ll be found and get out is what keeps you going. But he said, “Actually, no, hope breaks you more than anything else.” He said that the moment he was the lowest, in the three weeks, was the moment a plane flew over and he really, for a second, fully thought that he was going to be rescued, but then the plane kept going and left him. He said he’d been really fine, up until then. He hadn’t been giving into despair, at that point. But to suddenly have hope both given and then taken away in an instant was worse than having never had it, in the first place. That, to me, was a very unexpected thing that you can only get from asking somebody who has lived through this. 

You do really tremendous work in this. There’s a level of intense physicality to this role and you also decided to lose weight, which is shocking to see. What was the most challenging scene for you to shoot and what was the most rewarding scene for you to shoot?RADCLIFFE:  It’s hard to pick a scene that was the most rewarding, only because the shoot, as a whole, was quite a tough shoot, physically, for both me and the whole crew. We were filming in the jungle and it was a three-mile hike into the set, every day, with no roads. We couldn’t get trucks in there, so the camera guys were lugging tons of equipment back and forth, every day, in the heat and humidity. It was a challenging shoot for everybody, so when you complete a shoot like that and you do it together, it gives you a real sense of achievement and it makes you feel very proud to have done it. Some of the hardest stuff to shoot was all of the stuff in and around water. Everything slows down about 50% because of safety, and it’s hard. 

The most heart-breaking moment that I had during the shoot was when we had to postpone the end of the shoot. I tried to lose weight to make myself look more frail and emaciated towards the end and we were filming the last scene that I had to look that way on a Monday. I thought I’d go home that night and have the big, massive chocolate bar in my fridge, along with a steak. And then, the night before we came to film that scene, we got word that the river that our set was next to had flooded and the level of it had raised by eight feet in a night and our set was washed away. So, we had to postpone that scene and I had to postpone my chocolate bar and steak for almost a week. We were almost there and almost done, and it was taken away again. That was a moment where I was like, “Oh, man!” I was slightly heartbroken, at that particular moment. Not that every film I ever do will present physical challenges like this one, but it’s nice, as an actor, to get to the end of the day and feel, physically, like you’ve worked that day. 

When you do a film like this, does it affect what you want to do next? Did you want to go find a light-hearted comedy to do?  
RADCLIFFE:  Yeah, you do get a bit like, “Oh, man, whatever is next, I’m going to find something not quite as harrowing.” Although, I can’t quite remember what the next thing I did was. I guess it would have been Beast of Burden. I remember when I did a movie that was called The F-Word in Canada and England and What If in America, it was a really nice romantic comedy where nobody got covered in blood. Half-way through that, I was like, “This is great! Why don’t I take projects like this, all the time?” But I’m pretty sure I’d get bored with that, too. 

Do you know what you’re going to do next?  
RADCLIFFE:  I’m doing a TV series, starting this year, and I’m pretty sure it will come out next year. It’s my first time doing an American TV series, which I’m excited about. It’s called Miracle Workers, and it’s written and created by a guy called Simon Rich. Lorne Michaels is producing it. If you don’t know Simon’s work, then you have a huge treat ahead of you. He’s written a bunch of short stories and novels that are some of the most fun, wonderful, incredibly funny, but also very beautiful short stories and books. He’s an amazing writer, and he’s assembled a team of amazing writers. If I had something that was the thing I’m most attracted to, it’s really good writing. When you get the chance to work with somebody like that, I’m so excited about it. So hopefully, that will be out next year. I could not be more excited about it.


What kind of character are you playing in that?  
RADCLIFFE:  I don’t want to say. There is a book that the first [season] is based on, called What in God’s Name. The character I play is in that book, but we are changing quite a few things for the series. You can get a sense of my character from that book, but it will be different. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t know how much has been said publicly about any of it, but I’m very excited. 

The folks who work with you, both in front of and behind the camera, talk about your incredible ability to separate being an actor and being a star. Is that something you’ve always been conscious of, or is that something you had to learn, over time?  
RADCLIFFE:  I think it’s something that I’ve gotten a bit better at. Just after we finished Harry Potter and I was doing other things, and people would mention Potter to me, there was a part of me that obviously was very proud, but there was also a part of me that was worried that that meant they didn’t care what I was doing now, and there’s all this stuff going on in your head. Now, I realize how amazingly special the relationship that people have with Potter is. When you meet kids or you meet people and you’ve been a big part of their life, you do have a certain responsibility, even if it’s only a 10-second interaction, to try to give them the best possible experience of you that they can have. I think it’s important. Frankly, it’s one of the coolest thing about my life is that, just by virtue of being me sometimes. I met a kid on the street in London, the other day, with his dad, and they were freaking out and were really happy. I didn’t have to do anything to make that happen. I just had to stand there and not be a dick. When just saying hello to someone is going to make their day a little bit better, that’s nice. I don’t think of myself as a star. I don’t ever frame it in those terms. But I do appreciate the fact that people have a very long-standing relationship with watching me, and I always want to try to honor that, as much as I can. 

Parade magazine


Is this the most taxing and difficult film shoot you’ve ever done? 
Practically speaking, yeah. Absolutely. There were some sets that were a two-mile hike to get through. The poor camera crew had to transport their equipment by hand—and actually by donkey, too. A lot of the camera equipment was going to set by donkeys when we were in Colombia because those were the only animals sturdy enough to traverse the jungle with all that weight on their back. We were filming by rapids, we were filming in tanks full of mud; it was very rare that you got to set and thought, Oh, this is a nice easy day!
It would have felt wrong if it were an easy shoot. I went into this shoot knowing it was going to be tough and demanding, for sure. I could give myself a nice, humbling reminder that a guy actually lived through this and I was going to a hotel every night. You know, don’t complain; it could be worse.

What are some of the biggest challenges you had to go through in preparation for this role?  
One thing was obviously learning the Israeli accent. It’s an accent so different from my own, and so different from any accent I’ve ever done. That was a challenge. One of my pet peeves is when an actor is promoting a thing based on a true story and they talk about how their own process was so hard or whatever. I don’t want to do that because Yossi actually lived through this.
If I were going home to the hotel every night and having steak and chips, it would have made my job a lot harder. So I just kind of stopped eating a lot. I cut down massively on eating just to create that sort of tiredness that goes through your bones when you haven’t eaten properly in a while. Obviously that’s not exactly what Yossi went through, but I found just to get a sense of that was really helpful.
There was one particularly heartbreaking moment for me. I was eating, say, a protein bar every day. Or a chicken breast and a protein bar every day. We were supposed to be filming the final scene on a Monday. In my hotel fridge, I’d saved a massive bar of chocolate and a steak. I had my meal all planned out. Then we got word that a rainstorm caused a river to rise and it washed our set away. The scene had to be postponed for a week, which meant that I was like get the chocolate bar out of my room, I can’t be around it, I’ve got another week to wait!

All of the stuff in the water was very intense to film. We had the best safety crew in the world, and they were amazing. Still, we were filming by a racing river. It required a lot of concentration, and it was quite stressful.

Have you met the real Yossi Ghinsberg? 
Yes! I talked to him on Skype for about four and a half hours in the lead-up to the film. Then Yossi was out with us in Colombia and Australia for a lot of the shoot. I have to say, he was lovely. There’s a lot of ways you could be unhelpful when you’re the real person something is based on walking on to a set. He would have been perfectly within his right to come up between takes and say things like, “I didn’t do it that way,” or “I never said that.” He was really welcoming and generous, and incredibly kind. He was happy the movie was getting made and the story was being told.

What can you tell us about working with Greg McLean?
I really enjoyed working with Greg a huge amount. For the film he had to get made and the conditions he made it in, he always seemed so calm, chill and fun. That’s very useful when you’re shooting a really intense film. He and our director of photography Stefan Duscio were just great. Greg obviously had such an appreciation for the horror moments in the film. Obviously it’s based on a true story, but there are moments that wouldn’t be out of place in a horror film. Having someone with an appreciation for that aspect of the film, as well as the survival element I was talking about just made it clear he had a vision for the film.

Your work on stage and in film in recent years has been so eclectic and adventurous. If it’s possible to even sum up, could you tell us what you look for in a role? 
The thing that most excites me is any kind of originality–something that I haven’t done before. I’m not as excited about scripts that make me feel like I’ve seen it a million times before.
I’ve heard some people say Swiss Army Man is a weird movie or Horns is a weird movie. I don’t think of them as weird choices; they all make perfect sense to me. What I’m really drawn to–and you’re not always going to be able to find it, though I really felt this way about Swiss Army Man— is something that kind of reflects the way I think about the world; compassion and empathy being this force that exists to all of the most positive things that we can possibly portray in film. When you can find films that reflect the way you feel about the world and you feel it’s an important thing to communicate to people, that’s an exciting thing to do.

How he judges a film's success

“Honestly, the way I judge how a film has been successful for me is: What was the experience I had on set? Was it good? Did I have a good time? Was I happy? And, am I happy with the final film? I have no control on what people see and what people go and see at the box office. There’s a huge disposition on people judging a film by its opening weekend and whatever. There’s a place for that and that is important.”


“I did ‘Imperium’ a couple of years ago. It came out and did well critically, but it didn’t do huge business, and nor did I expect it to. Then earlier this year I was doing a play, and suddenly everybody was talking to me about ‘Imperium.’ And I was like, ‘What the hell? How has everybody just watched it?’ And I guess it had just come out on Netflix or iTunes.”

“As long as it finds an audience eventually that doesn’t really matter to me. As long as you do good work and make good movies, that for me is its own reward. I’m in a position at the moment where I don’t have to worry about the box office. And I can’t control that so I shouldn’t worry about it. I used to stress about it a lot more but I have moved away from that.”

Digital Trends

You’ve played everyone from Harry Potter to the zombie Manny in Swiss Army Man. What’s the challenge of bringing a real person to life, whether it’s Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings or Yossi Ghinsberg in Jungle?
It’s interesting talking about that, in that you’re right, the most useful comparison is actually Allen Ginsberg – because that’s the other time that I played somebody who was real and actually in the living memory of a lot of people, but not actually alive. I think that’s a huge difference, playing somebody where the resources that you have are things that they wrote a long time ago, which is amazing and is what I had with Allen. In a lot of his poetry and his diary he certainly wore his heart on his sleeve … like he let you into his psyche a lot of the time.

With Yossi, obviously, his book exists, which is a very accurate replaying of what happened in the jungle. But to get a chance to actually get to talk to Yossi, which I did for probably about four-and-a-half hours’ worth of conversation before we started filming, was great. That is the cool thing about being an actor sometimes, you play these roles and you get to talk to these remarkable people about their lives.

What was it like having him on set?
I feel like that could have gone either way. I didn’t know how that was going to be before we started the film, whether he’d be coming in and being like, “Hey, I didn’t do it like that,” or “You’re making me look stupid.” But he was actually really collaborative. He was very happy to be there and help, but he was very aware as well that we were making a movie. So it’s not going to be his entire story. We were condensing over three weeks of his life into a two hour movie. He came to the set with a really great, helpful attitude, where we could turn around to him at any point and say, “Hey man, did you do it like this? How did you do in this situation?” He was a really great resource to have on set.

How did the physical nature of the Harry Potter films help prepare you for what looked like a very grueling and physical shoot in the Australian jungle?
To be honest, the stunts on Potter and the physical nature of Potter have sort of set me up amazingly for a lot of the films I’ve done since. Sometimes the frustrating thing is that I was allowed to do a lot of stunts myself [on Potter] because the stunt coordinator knew me really well and he knew I could do a lot of it and I was up for it. And then going to other sets with people that don’t know you as well, they are understandably a lot more nervous of letting you actually do stuff for yourself.

But on this one, we had a great stunt coordinator and a great stunt double named Toby [Fuller], and they very quickly got that I wanted to do as much as they would let me do. So that was really fun, because I like doing physical stuff.
It’s nice because you don’t always get to feel as an actor that you physically worked at the end of the day, rather than just sat around talking while other people moved lights and heavy pieces of equipment.

Jungle has some intense whitewater sequences.  How did filming those compare to the 41 hours in water that you spent filming Goblet of Fire, and how has your swimming expertise improved since then?
It hasn’t, but fortunately, I haven’t really had to. The water stuff is always hard to film. Like you always slow down by at least 30 percent just because of safety issues and other stuff that starts coming up. But there is also something about being in the rapids for a few hours each day. It was definitely slightly grueling for me and for the crew and for everybody else that was there, but it’s one of those things that gives you a really nice sense of achievement when it’s done. When you’re finished with it and you look around at the camera guys and the other actors, it’s like, “Yeah man, we did that. That was really tough and we got through it.”
Whenever something is really challenging and arduous, those dangers exist, but they also present you with the feeling of accomplishment once you’ve managed to do it. It’s always very much worth it.

Were you much of a hiker or outdoorsman before this film project came about, and how has it changed your perspective on Mother Nature?
No, I was not, and I don’t think I would be. That’s the thing about what happened to Yossi that was completely amazing — he didn’t end up hating nature. He said for the first week he was there, he viewed nature and the jungle as an enemy that was trying to kill him, and then at a certain point he let go of that and was able to see himself as being a part of nature. And while there was a lot of pain and anguish and loneliness while he was in the jungle, he also had some of the most serene and joyous moments of his life there. That’s remarkable for him.

I don’t think that I would get the same thing out of it. I think if I had survived three weeks in the jungle I would never have gone back to the jungle. But Yossi went back and made his life there for several more years. And he actually focused his life on saving the jungle that had almost ended his life. I don’t know if I would have had the same sort of very positive feelings about the outdoors if I had been in Yossi’s situation.

You’ve played a lot of very different characters on the big screen and on stage since the last Harry Potter film. What do you look for in accepting new acting challenges?
I know this sounds like it would be simplistic and obvious, like who wouldn’t be looking for that, but originality is the main thing. When I read Swiss Army Man or Horns, there was just that sense of, “Oh, I’ve never seen something like this before. That’s really cool. That’s really exciting. Let’s do it.”  That gets me very excited. And even if it’s not something that is completely original to the world of film, but it’s something that I feel I haven’t done before, or a theme or a character that I haven’t had a chance to play before, that can be really exciting.

I think it’s fairly well-documented about me now that I like weird. Weird is good. And I like stuff that sometimes demands a little more of an audience. I’m thinking of Swiss Army Man specifically in that case, in terms of you needing to take a little bit of a leap into the world that we’re inhabiting as an audience member. But if you do, then it becomes incredibly rewarding as a film to watch. So I suppose that’s the kind of stuff I respond to, just like the chance to do something different.

And Jungle definitely was a different role for you.
Yeah, absolutely. Jungle was and Swiss Army Man both were, and I’m going to try and keep things as fresh that way as I possibly can.

The A.V. Club interview

Marion 0
The A.V. Club interview
In 11 Questions, The A.V. Club asks interesting people 11 interesting questions—and then asks them to suggest one for their next interviewee.

1. If you could spend the rest of your life inside one movie or TV show, what would it be and why?
Daniel Radcliffe: The first thing that comes to mind is The Simpsons. Because that was a very—it’s a pretty happy place, on the whole. Stuff gets resolved. The Simpsons or the Sherlock Holmes series with Jeremy Brett
.
The A.V. Club: The one from the ’80s, right?
DR: Yes! From the ’80s to the ’90s. I’m a big fan of Sherlock and what they’ve done with the sort of modern adaptation. I think it’s very, very clever. But as a straight adaptation of those books and short stories, it [the Jeremy Brett series] is so brilliant. And there’s something very comforting about it to me. At the time I found it in my life—there’s something very nostalgic and cozy about that sort of world, even though it’s obviously terrifying at times as well. I don’t know if I would actually choose that one or if I’m just thinking of things I would really like. But I think I would like it, yeah—maybe out of the two of them, I would go live in The Simpsons. This is a very rambling answer, I’m sorry.

AVC: So Simpsons in terms of actual comfort, but in terms of the joy that it brought you, the Sherlock Holmes—maybe that would be the difference?
DR: Yes, I think that’s it. That’s a much more concise and articulate version of what I was saying, so thank you. I do want to give myself the slight excuse that I got off a plane a few hours ago and so I’m just kicking myself awake with coffee, so I’m slightly delirious, probably, at this point.

2. Do you have a favorite swear word or phrase, and how often do you use it and in what circumstances?
DR: I think I use all the normal swear words in fairly normal circumstances—if I stub my toe, you know, or if I’m really happy. My favorite phrase, that a friend of mine who worked on the Potter films and was a lot older than me would use in front of me, and I picked up from him many great phrases—the English have a lot of great idioms for sweating. I don’t know why that is. But that’s what we do. I feel like it’s particularly our country; probably everywhere has a lot of idioms for sweating. He always said, “I’m sweating like a glassblower’s asshole,” which I always found an incredibly strange and yet vivid image.
AVC: Yeah, that is not a typical point of reference.
DR: “Sweating like a glassblower’s asshole.” That’s something once you hear it, it [sticks] with you, and I heard it when I was probably slightly younger than I should have been to hear it. But that’s essentially growing up on set.

AVC: Those are the ones you remember, the swears you learn when you were probably a little too young.
DR: I remember, actually, when I was about 12, I had an Ali G video and I was watching it and there was a bit in the video where there’s this big buildup, and it’s Sacha Baron Cohen talking to a camera, and he does this big buildup. I can’t remember exactly what he says, but it’s something like, “I’m going to use the worst word in the world now.” I won’t say it, but the word was the C-word. And he says it, and I don’t think I’d ever heard the word before. I must have been, like, 13. But I thought that the joke—because he’d done this big buildup—was that the word wasn’t actually that bad. Like it was a joke of, like, I’m going to do this big buildup and then the word isn’t actually—but I still hadn’t heard the word. So about a minute after this sketch ended, my dad walked into the room, and I turned around to him and said, “What does the C-word mean?” And I remember his face went gray and I saw his knees buckle slightly. And he goes, “Yeah, we’re gonna have a serious talk now about that word and why you’re never going to use it again.” That was definitely—I remember distinctly the first time and the circumstances where I heard that word, definitely.

AVC: And, as your father tried to make sure, the last time you used that word.
DR: [Laughs.] Yeah, I was at the age where I was just about old enough to convince them to let me watch stuff maybe from, like, I don’t know, South Park. Stuff that was slightly edgier. And then that happened, and that set me back a few months in terms of what I was allowed to view.

3: How did you spend your last birthday?
DR: I’m not terribly big on birthdays. It was a Sunday, and Sundays are fairly sacred to me. Not in any kind of religious sense, but in the sense that I like to try and keep them devoid of any kind of responsibilities or things that I have to do. For me, the stress of planning a party would outweigh any fun I would have at that party. I went out and got a late breakfast with a few friends and then… What did I do? I think I went and saw a movie with one of them and then just chilled out. That was it, really.
I’m really not—when I turn 30 I’ll maybe force myself to do something. But I’m really not that bothered by it. I really enjoy going to other people’s birthdays. I’m just not that into it for myself, I suppose.

AVC: Do you remember what movie it was?
DR: Shit, no, I don’t. It was really good. It might have been the second Guardians. Was it out at that time? God knows. I cannot remember. I did enjoy the second Guardians. If it was that film, that is not a slight on that movie.

AVC: It’s the birthday that wasn’t memorable, not the second Guardians.
DR: Absolutely. But that’s the thing, I hope that doesn’t sound sad. I just don’t care for…

AVC: There’s a large but silent population of people who have that sort of birthday aversion.
DR: The happiest I ever am is spending time with a group of really good friends. That’s all I aspire to in life, really. So it was perfect. I also think—not to bring everything back to the fact that I was on film sets when I was young, but that’s something. I really enjoyed a lot of birthdays on set. There’s a sort of natural—you don’t really have to do anything. Everyone knows it’s your birthday, and everyone’s really cool and says, “Happy birthday,” and you get cards. I think there was something in that. I never had to plan them when I was a kid. I know most people hate—they don’t work on their birthday, but I love my job, and it’s a very fun place to be. So maybe outside of that context, I don’t really know what to do with it.

4. What is the worst professional advice you’ve ever received?
DR: Somebody I love and have a huge amount of respect for once told me something that, to this day, I don’t really think I understand. It was probably toward the end of Potter, and they were talking to me about afterwards and that kind of stuff. And they were saying, “You need to think of yourself as a brand and you need to protect that brand.” I just don’t understand what that really means in terms of being an actor, and I also think I would find that a slightly soul-destroying way to look at myself. Maybe that’ll work for somebody who’s more—we have different understandings of what that phrase means to us. The person who said this to me is in no way somebody that I would think of as trying to protect anything. They were an old artist. I would never have known how to actually implement that in my life.
AVC: Everybody probably has a different interpretation of what “branding” means to them.
DR: I think it’s a generational thing. I react to that word like, “Ugh! No!”

5. If you were a medical doctor, what kind of doctor would you be and why?
DR: I wouldn’t, first of all. I will come up with an answer, but I just—I’m relieved that there are people who want to be doctors, that there are people growing up who want to do that and want to have that kind of responsibility, of life and death and helping people, on their hands. I absolutely could not do it. A very good friend of mine’s brother and father are both neurologists. I do find that the brain is fascinating. I’ve probably also over-romanticized—I’ve read, like, Oliver Sacks’ books—so I’ve probably over-romanticized the variety and the extraordinary cases that the average neurologist would see. I still think it’s a fascinating field.


6. What’s your perfect Sunday?
AVC: You partially answered this one in question three.

DR: Yeah! Easy. Now, at this time of year: My perfect Sunday only exists in a certain amount of weeks within the year because it involves the NFL season in a big way. I’m a huge NFL fan. I wake up, go for breakfast—there are a couple of great breakfast places around me in London that serve amazing English breakfasts—so get something like that and sit down in front of the TV and watch seven hours of football. [Laughs.] I normally don’t make the late games because I’m in England. But they start at 6 here and go til 12:30, 1 a.m. with the first sort of two rounds of games.
And then eat a ton of food. I’m fairly—I’m slightly an all-or-nothing kind of person, I’m not very good at half measures, so I eat fairly well during the week because I can’t have little treats here and there. I just contain all my shit eating until Sunday and then eat terrible food.

AVC: Do you have a favorite terrible food?
DR: Several. I suppose pizza and burgers and that kind of stuff. I also love—I feel like no one ever really wants anything else but those things. You just have to have something. I don’t really believe—whenever I see somebody with a salad, I think it. I know there are people who love salads. I do not love salads. I always am like, “You must just secretly really be wanting a burger.” We all are.

7. What do you get snobby about?
DR: When I was a teenager, I was a dick about music. I felt like it was impossible to be—well, for me, I feel like a lot of very teenage things, whatever you believe, you are utterly committed to and incapable of believing there is any other version of things. So I was super opinionated about music when I was a teenager, but I am happy to say I have relaxed about that now and I am no longer. I think the thing I still—sometimes, particularly when you’re filming, you’ll be on location in somebody’s house. Some random person will just turn the house over to a film crew for a few days. I remember one house I was in and there were a lot of books by Jeffrey Archer, and I was very snobby about their book collection. If there’s a lot of Jeffrey Archer, that doesn’t immediately endear me to a household.


AVC: That’s something where, if somebody came up to you and said, “I’m looking for some good books to read,” you’d feel comfortable being like, “Let me tell you what’s good out there”?
DR: That’s the thing. I wouldn’t necessarily. I suppose I read certain things that some people would think I have really boring or weird tastes sometimes. Everyone’s got different tastes. I’m not particularly snobbish about that stuff. It’s more like—I suppose it’s the presence of right-wing conservative authors in a house than anything having to do with snobbery.

8. What book have you read the most?
DR: The Master And Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. It might be the only book I’ve read more than once, to be honest. I’m really bad. I don’t generally reread things or rewatch stuff very often. But it’s amazing. Have you read it?


AVC: I have not.

DR: It’s set in two parallel timelines, one of which involves the devil coming to Moscow in 1925 with his amazingly fun and sinister retinue of characters that follow him around and the havoc he causes there. And then another timeline is the forgiveness of Pontius Pilate for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. They mix, and it’s also about writing, and it’s crazy and incredibly fun. If I could get really nerdy for a second, I don’t know enough about Russian to know what a good translation is. The one I read was by Pevear and Volokhonsky. Whenever I get the book for somebody else, I try to get that one. I don’t know if it’s better or worse than any of the other ones, but I know it’s the one I read and I really liked it.

That book, it’s so beautiful and unexpected, and the circumstances under which it was written are so amazing. He wrote it in secret over a period of, like, 14 years. It’s the classic thing of—at one point, he tried to destroy a lot of it, and his wife saved it, and it was published after his death. Within days, the Russian public was quoting passages from it in the street. It was a satire about life in the Soviet Union and also a deeply—I think Bulgakov was quite a religious man. I am not a religious person at all, but it’s the kind of book, you read it and it almost makes me wish I believed in God more than I do. The faith that comes out of it is very beautiful.

9. What are you afraid of?
DR: Being buried alive. I don’t know. I genuinely—I’m not just saying this because it’s been out in the news recently. You’ll be able to find me saying this in other interviews, but Yellowstone volcano does scare the shit out of me in a very real way, in the same way that nuclear war did when you were a kid and does now today in a very unfortunately real way. Definitely Yellowstone volcano was something that, when I first heard about it, I was like, “What?! It’s years overdue and it could do what?!” That’s a very panicked moment.


10. Who are you a big fan of that we wouldn’t necessarily guess that you’re a big fan of?

DR: Ooh—I suppose, maybe people would guess this. Some people probably know this because I’ve done one of his songs on television in England once, but Tom Lehrer. I was really heavily brought up on his An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer album. I know a lot of the words to a lot of those songs. I was lucky enough to meet him once and came backstage afterwards, and it was one of the most special moments I’ve ever had. He’s brilliantly funny, and his songs and jokes have aged amazingly well.
I feel like he was one of the first things I was listening to, the funniest and smartest people I was listening to, when you’re a kid and you’re like, “This is grown-up stuff and I’m getting it.” It was the first encounters I had with that kind of material.

AVC: One of the first songs I remember learning as a kid was the “Poisoning Pigeons In The Park” song of his.
DR: It’s brilliant. And that was so dark! The jokes—the songs he does about the Cold War, the vicious songs he does about racism. He’s incredible. You can see how he must have pissed a lot of people off in a wonderful way. That’s why I think it all holds up.

11. What advice would you give to your younger self?
DR: I actually think, if I’m remembering Jay Baruchel’s interview correctly at this point, I’m pretty much going to say the same. I think he just said, “Chill. Chill out.” I definitely think that would be the advice I would give my younger self as well. I was quite anxious, I think, in my late teens, early 20s. I wouldn’t give much different advice to my child self, and that was all fine. The late teens, early 20s version of me, I would definitely say, “You could afford to calm down a bit. It’s all going to be okay.”


Bonus 12th question from Steve Guttenberg: If you could go bowling with five people, living or dead, who would it be?
DR: Oh, I’m a terrible bowler. I would definitely take my girlfriend because she’s very good and, obviously, she’s a great bowler and also, I love her, she’s amazing company, so that would be great. And who else? Jesus. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I know that’s probably an answer a lot of people would give at the moment, but I remember the guy who dressed me on Potter—that was also the guy who used the “glassblower’s asshole” phrase—he dressed The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, on his previous movie just before starting Potter, which I believe was one of the Mummy movies. That was the coolest thing in the world to me. This costume guy, Will, became my immediate hero for having been in proximity to Dwayne Johnson. I was a very, very big WWF fan when I was younger. So him, my girlfriend… five people is tough. Maybe Usain Bolt? Just to see if he’s good at everything? I’m pulling stuff out now. Can they be dead?


AVC: Yeah, they can be dead.

DR: Then also I’ll say Mikhail Bulgakov, the guy who wrote Master And Margarita, because it’s my favorite book and that would be fun. It would be good to talk to him. And Tom Lehrer! There you go. It combines all my other answers.

AVC: What would you like to ask the next person, not knowing who you’re asking?
DR: So… whoa, that’s tough. Do you like your name?

AVC: That’s a great one. It’s simple, and it’s something that everybody thinks about.
DR: Because I’ve always—somebody said to me once as a kid, they were like, “I don’t think anyone likes their own name.” And I was like, “I do like my own name.” “Daniel Radcliffe”—it’s not a terrible name. I don’t hate it. I’m not walking around going, like, “Hey guys, I have the best name.” But I’m fine with it. I wonder what they think of theirs.
