Télé-Loisirs interview - Daniel J Radcliffe Holland


Télé-Loisirs interview

Interview by French TV magazine Télé-Loisirs in promotion of Miracle Workers.

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

If you had the same power as your character, what miracle would you accomplish?
If I could press a button like Craig does, I think it would be to eject embarrassing conversations that we sometimes have. It would be useful!

Does the series correspond to your own vision of religion and the world?

Yes, and I think that's why I wanted to be part of it, because it's rare to find a fiction that projects your vision.
It expresses how much better I feel than I could have written it myself. It mixes a dark side and a very soft tone. There is a lot of love in this series. It's light: if we get fucked, we all laugh!

The public is not used to seeing you in the comedy genre ...
I can understand that I do not consider myself a comedy actor, because I did that kind of thing in theater or in projects that few people saw. That's why I'm delighted to make them laugh with this series. I would like to do more comedies.

You had very different roles since Harry Potter. Was it a deliberate choice?

Yes, I try to choose projects as varied as possible. That's how I take the most pleasure. And what's good is that people now see me as an actor, and not just like the actor who played in Harry Potter. Being here to talk about this series is the proof!

You have also been an executive producer for Miracle Workers. What is it like to be on the other side of the fence?
I have even more respect for the actors, after attending the auditions, where I saw so many very different people from each other doing a lot of different things with the same subject and the same text. This is the first time I have been involved in a project as soon as I can consider myself a "producer". I arrived when we did not have a channel for the show yet. It's great to be able to help steer the project, not just to get to the set. I was involved for the screenplay and the casting.

Do you receive a lot of series proposals?
Yes, even though I have not done American series so far, because it usually takes a seven-year contract. With Miracle Workers, if we are lucky that the series is renewed for a season 2, I think we will try to make a series of comedy anthologies, a bit like American Horror Story in the comedy genre.
