Men's Journal interview

Men's Journal interview
Men's Journal interview in promotion of Escape from Pretoria.

With it being based on a true story, what types of research did you do for this role to prepare? 
I dug into as much of the real-life story I could. The first starting point was Tim’s book [Inside Out: Escape from Pretoria Prison] and there are quite a few interviews with Tim online, so I watched a lot of those as well. I knew a decent amount about South Africa and the history of it all, I’ve spent some time there and grew up knowing about apartheid, the basics of it all. But it was fascinating just to read Tim’s book and sort of find out what the day-to-day existence of somebody who was trying to resist that and how someone went about doing that during that period of time. That was very interesting for me.

What was the biggest challenge for you during the shoot?
In terms of being on set, my biggest challenge physically was doing the scene where the guys used a broom handle and manage to unlock their cell from the inside. So for the scene, you get the broom handle and you have to unlock the cell lock that’s on the outside of the door while you’re inside the cell using a mirror to see it. It’s just incredibly difficult and for me, it was just this one thing where I was like: ‘I have to be able to actually do that. We have to have at least one shot where I actually did it.’ I did manage to get it eventually. I think I was the only actor that did it [laughs].

What was the physical preparation like for you for the film?
I go to the gym a good amount to try and stay in shape and it’s funny because I’m not somebody that a lot of people expect that goes to the gym. So anytime anyone sees me there, they’re like ‘Is this for a part?’ And I kindly respond, ‘No, I do it all the time,’ with a laugh. So for this role, there wasn’t a huge amount of physical preparation, but for this movie it was more preparing for the physical space you’re in. The stresses for this shoot were more mundane and time-based. We have a huge amount of story to tell and not a lot of time to do it, and the construct of the story is very detailed with the escape. So physically, it was more about coming in every day and knowing you have to be absolutely on point with your lines and your movements and being ready to go very, very fast. Francis [Annan], the director, was phenomenal under that pressure.

What was it like working with this director and cast?
Working with Ian Hart, Dan Weber and Mark Winter, they’re just fantastic actors and great teammates to work with. I think everybody understood the rate we were going to be going. It’s always a strange thing when you come in and know you have a 24-day shoot and six days to rehearse before that, and then you have to develop a lifelong friendship with someone in that time. It’s only hard if you have someone who is resistant to that, and in this film, there was nothing like that. Everyone was on the same page and ready to work hard and it made it really easy and fun. Ian and Dan and Mark Winter’s performances were fantastic and I was very lucky to be working with them and this director as well.

You also got to work again with Ian Hart, who you starred with in the first Harry Potter film. What’s it like connecting again after all these years?
It was really cool. I’m starting to have these experiences more and more, which is both exciting and terrifying because it means it’s a yardstick meaning I’m getting older. But it’s also lovely because I’ve worked with people now that I’ve worked with 20 years ago on Harry Potter, like Ian who was in the first one with me, and it’s exciting to connect again. In the play that I was most recently doing, I worked with an actor Carl Johnson, who I was on set with maybe my first or second day ever on an acting set back when I did David Copperfield on the BBC before Potter. I was maybe nine or 10, and now I’m 30 and it’s 21 years later and I’m working with him again. It’s a really nice thing.

Did you keep anything from the Harry Potter set while filming the series?
Working on those seven movies was such a great experience for me, I made lifelong friends. I actually have got two sets of the glasses, those iconic Harry Potter specs. I’ve got a set from the first film and a set from the last film, because they are sort of a visual of how much I grew [laughs]. I’ve got them, but they are not in my house, they are in a locked box somewhere.

Did you learn anything during making this film that surprised you about what Tim and the characters really went through?
One thing that I found super interesting was that Tim said one of the reasons the escape was made possible was that the guards were really stupid [laughs]. It wasn’t just that, I mean Tim is a genius, but having the guards kind of mess things up a little helps too. But along with that, the thing that I found the most profound and surprising is that the event even happened at all. It gives me hope that guys like Tim and Steven Lee and Dennis Goldberg and all the other characters that were based on real people even existed. Because it isn’t like one day you just wake up and realize you’re going to fight back as they did. What I mean is, we all like to think that if we were raised in a society that was oppressive that we would have the moral compass that would tell us it’s oppressive and we wouldn’t tolerate it. But the sad reality is that most people do—but these guys didn’t. And even they will say that they can’t tell you particularly tell you why they didn’t and not others. But they were able to see the situation from the outside, see it as immoral and inhumane as it was. And it gives me hope that people can do that.

Wired interview

Wired interview
Guns Akimbo is now available on Amazon Prime Video for Italy. Website Wired interviewed Daniel. Not much new but the topic Harry Potter is mentioned more than Guns Akimbo.

A excerpt:

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

It shouldn't be a new sensation: it's been Harry Potter for 10 years ...
I mean an action hero: for obvious reasons [you look at your abs, ed.] It's not that I am chosen for similar roles, but this time I could have been credible and, therefore, I threw myself headlong.
After all, we are in a movie and anything can happen, just don't take yourself too seriously.

What is the first rule of popularity?
If a young actor asks me for advice I feel uncomfortable, from experience I am the last to speak.
What am I supposed to answer? Find a nice franchise and you have turned" it doesn't seem the best, so I always repeat that the key to success lies in kindness.


He admits that he is looking for absurd roles to forget Harry...
No, it's not like that: I don't want people to forget that I was Harry Potter! For 10 years it has been part of my life and I love him immensely. I would never kill him to do anything else, but I would do it like the
the audience saw me in different roles and contexts.


At a certain point, didn't you have the impulse to escape to a deserted island? (on reading negative comments online)

No, I like my life like it, with its crazy and extraordinary moments, the package of fame includes both and I never thought about changing and things.


Would you like to take Harry's wand back?

Never say never.

The interview

What did Harry give Daniel? And Daniel to Harry?
I don't know if Daniel gave something to Harry, but Harry, and when I say Harry I mean not only the character, but everything that involved him, including the movies and the people I worked with, they gave me that great
Start. . , the opportunity to discover and work in this industry that I adore. Although my parents also work in the sector, I don't think that through them I would have felt pushed to work in the cinema. In the past few years, I've kept doing other things while still being proud of Potter. I loved making each of those movies. I think the press thinks I don't want to talk about Potter, but it's not true. What happens is that with the press I also like to talk about other topics. But if someone comes up to me on the street, nine times out of ten it's to talk about Harry Potter. It is an honor to think that I have been an important part of someone's childhood.

Would you take the role again in the future?
That is a different question. I honestly don't know if I would. I have had an incredible ten years and I loved it, but I am also very happy with my life now. I've managed to get away from the movies, of which I only have wonderful memories, but I would worry that going back to them would mean changing my life again. Also because surely it would not only be for a single film, which would imply a commitment of several years.

Did you ever get used to being called Harry instead of Daniel?

Absolutely. For quite some time I would turn around if I heard Harry's name. But there came a time when I said to myself, “I have to stop turning. That's not my name!" [laughs]. During the first three or four years, nobody knew my name. So it was basically Harry. Since that happened at first, I got used to it. And still today I am impressed and flattered when someone knows my real name.

At a very young age you were a great international sensation. At what point did you realize you were famous?
At first we did not give it much importance. We were still kids and our obsession was whether we could watch cartoons or go to sleep late. The first few days we were hired we took the three [main actors] to a London hotel because the paparazzi had previously gone to our houses. That's the first moment as a child that I became aware that he was famous, but at the same time you don't know what it means. Honestly, I didn't feel the impact of fame at first because we spent days rolling. The first times I realized it was at the end of my adolescence, when I started to party. However, it is something that is still crazy when you see your face in an advertisement on the bus ...

Or in an amusement park dedicated to you ...

Now that's crazy! But after a while you stop seeing it, because deep down it's all so crazy that your brain can't process it.

On several occasions you have defended the behaviors of the star children and their tone outs. How does one develop within the bubble of fame?
The most complicated thing is everything that has to do with identity. When you are still young and you are discovering who you are it can be very hard to digest that version that everyone thinks of you. So you wonder if you have to be that or not. Fame is fleeting. I have been famous since I was very young. But I won't always be. It is very dangerous when you are very young and fame becomes part of your identity. If you don't know who you are, when you no longer have it, you will have a problem because the world will no longer be the same for you.

To start again with the topic coronavirus. The New York Times interviewed Daniel via Skype days after the Twitter hoax at The Old Vic Theatre in London.

Update: 21st March 2020. Another photo.
Update: 25th March 2020. Another photo.

This is what he said about it:
“What’s annoying about it is, like, if things keep going the way they are going, I might well get it at some point,” he said, chuckling at the absurdity of the situation.

“I don’t know what that makes me feel, to be honest. It’s just, like, odd. I read somewhere that they said I was a perfect person to do it with because I don’t have social media, so I can’t see it and respond immediately.”
On the advice of his producers he started avoiding contact with his fans:
“It’s just a lot of feeling like you are being incredibly rude. Sometimes you’ll go to do an elbow thing and somebody will look at you, as if, ‘Come on, are we really doing that?’ and I have to reply, ‘Yes, I’m sorry, I’m really paranoid about it, I don’t want to get sick and spread that around.’”
Another topis: Child actors :
“Knowing that is what people think about young actors made me counteract that to the point where you could be quite rude to me and I would not notice,” “I would be so paranoid that you could say whatever you liked.”
The mind-set that keeps him from alcohol is helping him navigate the coronavirus anxiety today.
“To really know and understand what it means to take something one day at a time is an attitude that really helps across life,” he said. “When you first stop drinking, you have to be convinced that you can ever have fun again.”
He is eager to be reunited with his girlfriend, the actress Erin Darke, in New York:
“Honestly, I am desperately trying to get back,” he said. “I’m very much aware that this is not the main tragedy of this global pandemic, but I do not want to be not with her through whatever it is that’s happening.”

“Hopefully I’ll be over there in a few weeks,” he said. “We shall see.”
They like to watch movies or play board games:
“I’m going to make us sound ancient, but we play cribbage. I can’t describe it without making it sound intensely dull, but it’s very addictive,”
