Update: Full article via laprensa.mx. Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland:

Toronto, Canada (28th October 2019) .- Although he is a leading figure in social networks, Daniel Radcliffe remains firm in his decision to be 100 percent private. With 30 years of experience, the actor, who became world famous by embodying the magician's apprentice Harry Potter from J. K. Rowling's novels for cinema, confesses that he learned to deal with popularity and set limits.

"I absolutely refuse that online world of ventilating my public life.

I do not criticize anyone, nor do I put myself in the role of anyone's judge. I am not interested, the virtual world does not call me, and who likes it ... that's good!

"I have learned what it is to be popular, but I give what is necessary and that is all.

Why would I open an Instagram account talking about my trips or the ice cream I ate or the sadness that a storm causes me? "Radcliffe says.


Therefore, he says smiling, he balances his celebrity status and his behavior both in public and in private.

"I have lived all my life under scrutiny and rumors, and I have learned to handle them. I think those proposals that I have had to be an influencer, to use my name to have an account and to pay me." Or, to commit to talking about a cream or a product does not go with me. My goals are to make a good cinema and a good theater, "he says.

That vision led him to participate in Guns Akimbo, a film recently released in Canada and which critics consider an explosive and crazy treatment of violence. Paradoxically, Radcliffe embodies Miles, a video game developer who involuntarily comes to star in a death fight that is broadcast live.

"I am not a fan of video games, I am not good at that, since I could be at board games, but they make me curious and the script of this work led me to that universe of which several are friends, such as video games.

"In the cinema I want to enter into unique and intelligent projects, and this is one of them. I am super calm, violence is not part of my life, and suddenly entering this world of death fights, in such a realistic way and with real life analogies ... it is strong! "

The actor of films like Victor Frankenstein and Now You See Me 2 shares that, for his performance in this production, he analyzed YouTube videos of UFC players to understand their expressions.

He also read about technology, use of drones and terms for digital platforms to enter the atmosphere of his character.

"Actually, I don't get much into the network, beyond watching music videos or some advances in programs or movies, I'm not an expert. I will always prefer human contact, talk, debate. "

At the moment, the filming of Escape from Pretoria has just concluded, which will be released next year.
