Radcliffe talks life at, after Hogwarts Radcliffe talks life at, after Hogwarts

090703 harry la timesThe LA Times has published a new feature piece on Daniel Radcliffe.  In the piece, Radcliffe talks about life at Hogwarts, saying that he has learned his way around all of the sets ("Well, pretty much.") and discussing what it has been like working with some of Britain's finest theater and film actors on those very sets.

Griffiths also once advised Radcliffe to never let the camera catch him when he wasn’t thinking because the void would be read in his eyes; the veteran prefaced that counsel by saying it was told to him by Lee Marvin, who heard it from Spencer Tracy. “Just think,” Radcliffe said, “how many young people get access to that sort of advice and that sort of history?”

The actor, who turns 20 this month, also talks about life after Hogwarts, commenting on the importance of not always being associated with J.K. Rowling's famous boy wizard that he has been playing on screen since 2001.

New Zealand Herald profiles Daniel Radcliffe New Zealand Herald profiles Daniel Radcliffe

090701 Radcliffe profileThe New Zealand Herald has published a lengthy feature on Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter).  In the piece – "Harry Potter – still working his magic" – Radcliffe discusses his hopes for the final two films; why he is glad the seventh book is being made into two films; and what it's like working with Michael Gambon (Professor Dumbledore), among other things.

"I'm very happy that the seventh book is being made as two films," notes Radcliffe, "because I was worried they would have to cut important scenes. For example in the fourth film you could cut out the house elf sub-plot and it doesn't affect the main story in any way. In the second film they cut out the Nearly Headless Nick Death Day Party. In fact that whole character has fallen by the wayside. The problem with doing that with the final book is that there is nothing that doesn't relate to the main story or drive it forward. There's not much you could cut. So we've given ourselves the room and opportunity to do it justice."
