TU Style magazine interview - Daniel J Radcliffe Holland


TU Style magazine interview

Interview by Italian magazine TU Style in promotion of Guns Akimbo which is available on Amazon Prime Video.

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

In Guns Akimbo you are a video game expert who one day wakes up with two guns attached to his hands: is it an action movie?
It looks like a film by Jason Statham (Fast & Furious actor, ed.) But in a visionary and geek version. I shot it always wearing boxers and slippers, for me it was very liberating: maybe I could always act with a wardrobe like this!

Have you ever been a video game fanatic?
I started on the sports ones, then I gave up because they took me too many hours and I was a bad player.
. With the Harry Potter video game, however, I never ventured, perhaps because I felt I was going to be a sucker there too. Better not to risk.

Speaking of the wizard, Rupert Grint (Ron) and Tom Felton (Draco) would immediately return to the saga: and you?

I didn't know there was anything concrete and I never know if it is rumors circulating online. And it is always difficult to speak without damaging the sensitivity of the fans. For my part, I never said an absolute "no" on returning to the franchise, but I should read the script.

Don't you, former actors, have a group on WhatsApp?
We do not need it: we have created an unbreakable bond regardless. Especially with Rupert and Emma: we lived everything together intensely, and we know what it means. Even if we don't see each other more often, there is a special relationship between us.

When someone asks for a selfie to your character, in Guns Akimbo, he agrees. You?

I always agree willingly because I feel the responsibility for this job, I know how many kids grew up with Harry Potter and I don't want to spoil the magic of childhood to anyone.

What is your relationship with fame?

I'm lucky because the people around me have helped me to keep my feet on the ground, to make me understand that fame doesn't always last and above all it doesn't have the power to make problems disappear when they arrive. And I have wonderful memories: living on a set as a child is a dream, the whole crew pampers you and protects you.

Today you choose unusual roles and slightly crazy stories, like the Miracle Workers series. Is it a way to distance yourself from Harry?
No, I deeply love Harry and it is not to detach myself from the past that the professional challenges of the present are different. If I choose strange stories, it is because dark fairy tales allow me to give free rein to my imagination.

Guns Akimbo also has violent scenes. Aren't you afraid that they will be emulated?

It's such a" cartoon "violence that I didn't really ask myself the problem. And besides, I don't think films should offer the public a moral or educational compass.

What do you think of social media?
They are not for me. I decided not to have accounts because I would be too emotional in the reactions, I would be doing very badly. I understood it when I started compulsively reading online criticism: I stopped to safeguard my mental health and get out of a sort of addiction. They could have written wonderful comments to me but I risked fixing myself on the only negative and also convincing myself that he was right.

Instead you seem so calm and zen ... Is there something that really makes you angry?
I'm a quiet guy and I don't lose patience easily, but rudeness doesn't, I just can't stand it.
But I understood that anger is not healthy and I learned to react constructively.

Something that fans don't imagine of you?

I really like going to the gym.
I know that perhaps it would not be said ...
