Guns Akimbo is now playing in Mexico. It's an extended interview by Juan Carlos García who spoke to him at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2019.

Update: Just found the full article via eldiariodeparral.mx. A translation from his quotes:

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

“We live in a time when everything is polarization, fights, hatred. It is not very far from reality and in this macabre, sinister and very well told game, there is a purpose: to kill the one who knows the most. I think Skizm is very significant today - it's a network that runs in the nether worlds and in these struggles, between criminals and psychotics who fight to the death, there is a lot of symbolism, especially in the digital age"

For Radcliffe this was an opportunity to prove himself on another acting record:

“I have always wanted to make characters diametrically opposed to those of a magician. In the case of this film, I approached her because of the treatment, the visual proposal and the narrative that Jason gave me, ”

Le Parisien interview

French interview in promotion of Miracle Workers: Dark Ages (series 2). The series premières on Warner TV in France today.

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

After heaven in season 1, Miracle Workers takes place this time in a medieval village. What makes this season 2?
The jokes are really successful. I'm delighted that a show can exist being silly and ridiculous while being smart with a lot of emotion. It is a real tour de force of the authors. And the sets are crazy. The exterior already existed, but the interiors were created for Miracle Workers. It's crazy to think that this is the setting for a small comic series! It's a bit like having the Game of Thrones sets and the Simpsons jokes. A combination as cool as it is weird.

What was your impression the first time you entered these settings?

This is the biggest film set I have known since Harry Potter. Every time I opened a door, I thought there would be nothing behind it, but what if: another room, a hallway, a courtyard… it never ends!

You play an incredibly stupid prince. What is easier to interpret as an actor: intelligence or stupidity?
Intelligence, I think. Because if it's well written, you just have to say your text correctly and you look smart. I hope I pretend more when I play stupid (laughs). When you think of famous silly characters like Joey in Friends, for example, it's a brilliant, incredibly nuanced performance by Matt LeBlanc. Either way, it's the most fun to play.

As in season 1, Miracle Workers remains a satire of the world today, taking place even in the Middle Ages ...
Yes, the series is a reminder of how much humanity has always faced difficulties. We are not special today.

Yet you are special yourself because of your popularity. Difficult to keep your feet on the ground?

No, I am not special. Believe me, I live with myself every day (laughs)! I grew up on movie sets and that taught me a lot. When I was 10-11 years old, the teams around me talked all the time about two types of actors: those who work normally by treating everyone the same and those who think they are above others. The choice was quickly made on the kind of person I wanted to be. I have always been aware that I was treated differently from the average person, but I try to do the opposite. I am not comfortable with preferential treatment.

What did the series bring you?

The chance to meet high quality comedy writers and see how they work. I got to spend time in the writing room in season 1 and even more time in season 2. They don't just write jokes, they build the whole structure of the narrative, the relationship between the different stories is fascinating. .

Steve Buscemi, your onscreen partner, directs an episode. Are you also planning to go behind the camera?
Yes, this is a direction I would like to take. Without giving up comedy, but I would like to do both in the next few years. I've been talking about it for a long time now, I would have to get started!

What kind of project would you like to do?
Something I would have written. Probably a black comedy. I would take all my friends there, I would use my connections from the last twenty years to convince everyone I have played with in the past (laughs).

Have you been writing for a long time?

For five or six years. It's something that has always attracted me, but I find it difficult to complete a script. I have finished one which does not seem very nice to me. There I am working on another one that could give something better. The more I meet authors, the more I take the opportunity to observe them. I'm still learning on this side.

What other comedy series would you recommend?
The first episode of season 2 is one of the best written things I have seen in my entire life. The entire series is masterful in its combination of sad emotions and laughter.

Télécâble Sat Hebdo interview

An interview with Daniel is featured in French TV magazine Télécâble Sat Hebdo in promotion of Miracle Workers: Dark Ages (series 2). The series premières 18th August on Warner TV in France.

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

Why did you choose the Middle Ages to stage season 2 of Miracle Workers?

A context that has nothing to do with that of season 1 ... When Simon (Rich, creator of the series) wondered where and especially when the next season of Miracle Workers could take place, he said to himself that the period of the Middle Ages had the greatest comic potential.

To what extent?
You should know that Simon is passionate about history and that some things, very funny or even completely crazy in season 2, are based on historical facts. This is the case, for example, with animal tests that actually existed. We tried to exploit some of these practices that were common in the Middle Ages in a comical and wacky way in Season 2 of the series.

Isn't it something troubling for you to change things so drastically from season to season?

Not at all. I knew that with Simon I was in good hands. He is an intelligent, intelligent and cultured person. I think it takes all of these qualities to pull off a show as absurd and wacky as Miracle Workers. Changing the context completely was no problem for him and his team. You know, Simon is one of the few people in the business that I can say, "Whatever you write for the next few years, I'll be happy to be a part of it."

How would you describe Prince Chauncley that you play in this new season?

Initially, Chauncley is a particularly stupid lone prince. He has no sympathy for anyone. But over the course of history and certain encounters, he will become more and more human and realize that he doesn't have to be like his tyrannical father.

It seems that initially, the idea of ​​having to play a character from the medieval period did not enchant you more than that. Rumor or truth?

I have to admit that before discussing this with Simon, I was very worried. I was afraid I would have to ride a horse and use a sword. So let's be honest, since the character I'm playing is a huge coward, I - thank goodness! - escaped thunderous cavalcades and fratricidal sword fights.

On the other hand, you have not escaped the ducks with which your character seems to have a great affinity. Is it complicated to play with this type of animal?
(He bursts out laughing.) It's not easy. With time and patience, you can get your ten ducks to stay in roughly one place. Otherwise, it's very, very complicated. There was a disconnect between what the writers had imagined and what we actually got from them on set during filming. The first day of filming with the ducks was intimidating.

Other than the ducks, how did the ten week shoot in Prague, Czech Republic go?

I hadn’t seen such huge sets since Harry Potter. It was gigantic. Every time you walked through a door and thought it was the end of the film set, it opened up to something even bigger. It was truly breathtaking.

How was the atmosphere?

I know it sounds cliché to say this, but it's true, filming season 2 was like summer camp with a good group of friends. It was really just happiness.

Would you be ready for a season 3?

Yes of course ! But at the moment, it's unclear whether the series will be renewed. (It is recently  announced that there will be a season 3).

What are your immediate plans?
Nothing specific yet, apart from the fact that I'm dying to go back on stage in London or Broadway. Sooner or later I know it will happen eventually.

El Sol de México interview

El Sol de México interview with Daniel on the phone in promotion of Escape from Pretoria (Fuga de Pretoria)'s release in Mexico.

Translation by Daniel J Radcliffe Holland.

An excerpt:
“We are living in a time when it is important to tell the stories of people who have heroic qualities that should be celebrated, of people with enormous courage, but who at the same time have great principles and sacrifice so much for their ideals. That is always something important as an actor ”
Daniel talking about Tim Jenkin

“We talk a lot about what it meant to grow up in South Africa and what the social awakening to apartheid was like. He told me the day to day of the protests, what it was like to get to prison and the step-by-step plan of the escape; that helped me to have practical details of how and where he hid the tools to sand the wood or the technique to do it, among many other things. It was very strange to hear all these stories coming directly from him ”
