How Daniel Radcliffe broke out of prison

CHECK YOUR POTTER PRIVILEGE
“This was one of those scripts that you read and you’re like, ‘How is this not more widely known?’ With my specific career, Potter has afforded me to do my own thing, and I wanted to be part of helping to tell this story. That was enough of a reason for me.”

LEARN FROM THE REAL DEAL
“Tim [Jenkin] is a really fascinating guy. I was very intimidated by him because I really wanted to do his life justice. He’s actually in the film — he came on set for a few days, and we were filming in a real prison, and they put him in prison clothes again. I was like, ‘I guess this is nice?’ But he was totally up for it.”

ACCEPT THAT THE TRUTH CAN BE TOO STRANGE FOR FICTION
“In the film I have to forge a key, so I make a mould and there’s a whole process behind it. But that didn’t actually happen in real life — Tim just looked at the key he needed, went back to his cell and drew an outline from memory. He’s such an amazing guy. [But] we just didn’t think that anyone would believe that in a film.”
