The Huffington Post interview

The Huffington Post interview
Daniel talked on the phone with The Huffington Post about being executive producer on Circus Kid, now streaming on Sundance Now, and more.
“Sorry if I sound out of breath,” a panting Daniel Radcliffe told HuffPost on the phone recently. “I accidentally didn’t notice that I got out on the wrong floor of the building I’m staying in and fully just ran into somebody else’s apartment ... thinking that it was mine.”

“Luckily they weren’t in there. I suddenly just sort of walked in and said somebody’s done something ... and where are all my things? And then just fully sprinted out of the room in blind panic,” he added.
Daniel met Lorenzo during Equus on Broadway:
“I can probably tell this story now because at the time my parents didn’t know that I smoked, but they do now,” he said. “At the time when I was in theater, I would sneak up to Lorenzo’s room and ask if I could jump out on his fire escape to smoke. Again, maybe I shouldn’t be saying this.”

Pisoni wasn’t smoking, Radcliffe clarified. “He was literally like, ‘Yeah, fine, you can use my fire escape.’ I had had my first cigarette before that, but I won’t say when. I will spare my parents’ retroactive disapproval.”

After Radcliffe learned Pisoni grew up in the circus, the former “Harry Potter” actor couldn’t stop pestering his co-star about it. Radcliffe eventually attended an early version of Pisoni’s show, “Humor Abuse,” in which he told the story of his childhood. That sparked the idea behind ― and eventually led to the creation of ― “Circus Kid.”

“He’s had this incredible life, but he’s incredibly grounded and has a level of self-awareness that is not always common in people that kind of know they’ve had extraordinary lives,” Radcliffe said.

Yahoo! Entertainment interview

Yahoo! Entertainment interview
A new interview regarding Daniel as executive producer on Circus Kid. The documentary film premiered yesterday exclusively on Sundance Now (US). Miracle Workers is also mentioned (in which he plays an angel but he is also an executive producer for that project).

Circus Now
is fantastic. It left me wanting to know even more about the Pisoni family.

Oh, good, that’s great! We’ll do a sequel.

You worked with Lorenzo in Equus on Broadway. Is that when you became friends and heard his story for the first time?
Yes, we worked together [on Equus], and I was 19 at the time, and just thought he was the coolest person I had ever met. And he’s cool without trying to be. He’s just a lovely human being, but he’s also extraordinarily talented. He thought on Equus that he was going to be getting, for the first time in his career on Broadway, his own dressing room. And that would have been really nice for him. But, unfortunately, he had a 19-year-old groupie call me, who just, like, invaded his dressing room for the duration of the run. We became very, very good friends. And he’s somebody that helped me; he helped me on that show, but he helped me in my personal life too. He’s been somebody that I’ve often gone to, to talk through things and help keep my sanity. And I like to think that I’ve sort of been a useful sounding board for him at times throughout the years. But also, professionally, he’s somebody that, because he’s obviously, as you’ve seen, somebody so extraordinarily talented physically, whenever I’ve been doing parts that require a sort of physical element to them — the two I’m thinking of are Victor Frankenstein and Swiss Army Man — he was somebody that I would go to to work through ideas with, because I know I don’t mind making a total fool of myself in front of him.

Fox News interview with Daniel Radcliffe

Fox News interview with Daniel Radcliffe
Fox News talked with Daniel about his role as executive producer of the documentary film Circus Kid. It captures the real-life tale of Lorenzo Pisoni’s unique childhood with The Pickle Family Circus. Circus Kid available exclusively on Sundance Now (US), starting today.
“We became very good friends,” Radcliffe told Fox News. “I started learning about his life… and then I became the most annoying [person]… Like, ‘Oh, you were in the circus?! Can you juggle?’ It was annoying I’m sure, but he was very sweet and humored me."
How the spotlight had impacted them over the years:
“I think I'd be hard-pressed to find parallels in our families and how we dealt with it all,” explained Radcliffe. “Lorenzo’s parents are separated. I’m very lucky my parents are still together and are a wonderful team. And Lorenzo went off on his own for a lot of his childhood. I was generally chaperoned by one or the other of my parents… But it all just made sense.

When you’re living in a life where there really isn’t a blueprint for it, there’s nobody you can look to, there wasn’t a family my parents can go and say, ‘OK, so what’s it like when your kid gets involved in a massive franchise?’ You just have to go, ‘Let’s do this ourselves.’… I certainly wouldn’t change anything about my life or how I grew up because it made me the person that I am. I’m actually becoming more and more OK with that person.”

Collider's interview with Daniel Radcliffe

Collider's interview with Daniel Radcliffe
The documentary film Circus Kid is available exclusively on Sundance Now in the US starting today, 21st December. Below you can read Collider's interview with producer Jennifer Westeldt and Daniel, who's executive producer together with Karen Lehner.

Collider:  How did you get involved with Circus Kid?
DANIEL RADCLIFFE: Lorenzo and I first worked together when I did Equus in New York. I think it was the first Broadway show in which he had ever had it in his contract that he would have his own dressing room, which is always a nice thing for an actor. And then, he didn’t get to enjoy that because I invaded his dressing room for basically the entire run. I just thought he was amazing and I wanted to hang out, so he had me, as a 19-year-old groupie going, “Tell me more stories about the circus!

Daniel Radcliffe's holiday book suggestion

Daniel Radcliffe's holiday book suggestion
MarketWatch asked a number of notables the following question: What book do you like to recommend or give as gifts to friends and family over the holidays? And yes, Daniel also answered their question.

Daniel Radcliffe, star of “Jungle”:
“The one book that I have to recommend to everybody at the moment because it’s changing a lot of how I see things, frankly, is a book called ‘Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story’ by Angela Saini. I feel like you’ll read it and probably buy it for a lot of other people because that’s what I’ve been doing with it. My friend Jesse, who is a female physicist, bought it for me. It’s basically about scientists all the way back to Darwin. A lot of the research that has been done into and about women has been filtered through a very male, sometimes deliberately, sometimes not deliberately, sexist filter of biases. We like to think of science as being above bias but of course it’s not because it’s just human beings. It’s an amazing story of this research and what the information itself is, but it’s also the story of how scientific research is done, how it gets published, how it gets to be in the newspaper. It’s just a fascinating look at that world and I can’t recommend it enough.”
