Check it out. Time Magazine has released this new video interview with actor Dan Radcliffe who answers ten questions from fans. In the article version, you can see a new (handsome) photo of Dan, plus read some of the responses which include a very candid response on the character of Harry Potter:

What do you think has been Harry’s greatest misstep or failure in judgment?Susan Bevins, Winter Park, Fla.
Susan Bevins, you have asked a question no journalist has ever asked
me. I think the way he treated his friends a couple of films ago was
quite questionable. They’re always there for him, and he was a little
bit ungrateful. I think Harry is a flawed character. He can be quite
selfish and really manipulative. He’s not all sweetness and light.

What do you think about the way J.K. Rowling formed the plots of the books?Frances Taylor, Sarnia, Ont.
Obviously, it’s inspired. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have done nearly as
well as they have. They have taken the best bits of different kinds of
literature. It’s the latest in a long line of orphan literature.
There’s the English boarding school. There’s the good-vs.-evil thing.
The fact that she came up with the entire thing on one train journey is
pretty remarkable.

Cheers Aly!

In fact I always thought of him the opposite. Maybe he means that Harry sometimes isolates himself, because he believes he has to manage everything on his own, without troubling his friends. Avatar Imageothfhp says: Nice to see at least 3 different countries represented in the chosen questions.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: watched the interview!! loved the thats not a spell thats a potion thing!! lol!! hes funny :PAvatar Imageminishiva says: Dan seems to be very intelligent.I like reading his interviews.Avatar Imagebengtson_98 says: Great Questions!Avatar ImageHazelShadows says: Oooo loved the interview!

These actors genuinely appear to listen and care about the movies, content and fan queries. I can almost see gears turning as they ponder the questions and give well versed canon answers.

I thought it was really good. Check it out if you haven't already! http://www.fancast.com/movies/We-Are-Wizards/141533/1145408141/We-Are-Wizards/videos Avatar ImagetheREALGinnyWeasley says: he is so funny!!! really sad though that none of my questions got on :(Avatar ImageethanHP says: I like when the fans get to be the ones asking the questions, they are always more interesting than the repetitive ones the journalists ask. It's funny what he says about the comedy, I think he doesn't realize how good he is with it, because after watching the film I thibk Daniel stole the show with the Felix Felicis scene! He was so funny! I can't wait to watch the movie again. :)Avatar ImageFresca says: Wow! They actually liked my question enough to use it. That is amazing. I think all the questions were thought provoking too, and I learned a lot from them. Avatar ImageethanHP says: That's great FrescaROAR! Which one is your question? :D I really liked the stories about Richard Harris and Gary Oldman. See, journalists don't make the right questions, otherwise we would have heard those stories quite a long time ago!Avatar ImageAmy Darlene says: True Love and then a clip of Cho Chang? loved his comments about Gary Oldman i'd like to see them in another project down the road... Avatar Imagemariapotter says: As usual, Dan delivers. He is SO quick! So smart at his age so who knows what he'll be like with a decade of other data and learning in his busy head. I love you danrad!Avatar Imagebudgie says: Good interview and thoughtful questions and answers.Avatar Imagekbicprez says: Yet another GREAT interview from Dan! Mad about you Dan!Avatar Imagebeewell says: Great interview like always! Like that he actually listen to the questions and knew the right answers to them.

ILD!Avatar Imagepotter_mom_in_GA says: Way to go Dan! He's done some great interviews this summer!Avatar ImageJadeDanielle says: Haha, nice interview. I loved the bit about Gary Oldman (kinda surprised the question didn't include Alan Rickman's name, though). And about Richard Harris....awwwww. :sAvatar Imagemaimiaa says: lol love Dan :] great interview! Avatar Imagesanjuangelina says: oh how awesome can he get! He is really so involved and absorbed in his work and that is why he is such a brilliant actor. Same thing goes for even My Boy Jack. I think that many people who quite like Dan didn't watch it with a lot of interest sadly. He is such an amazing actor in that too.Avatar Imagesanjuangelina says: oh how awesome can he get!

I love his energy and randomness.Avatar ImageJillxoxo says: What a nice discovery - he answered my question!Avatar Imagehanname says: A really nice interview. He seems to genuinely care for the movies and Harry Potter.Avatar ImageAura says: I found it weird that he says Harry is reserved and doesn't show his feelings. I always thought of Harry as one who wears his heart on his sleeve. Hermione always figures him out; and Ron would too, wasn't he so out of it.Avatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: Once again, a fantastic interview with Dan. His answers about the Potterverse are really good and well formulated, he truly gives the impression that he knows the books and the characters inside out. Go Dan, our walking Potter encyclopedia! :) Loved the "it's not a spell, it's a potion" comment. Really good questions, btw, just goes to show that we fans are the ones who should be doing the interviews.Avatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: Btw, can anyone rip this particular interview and send it to the Leaky Galleries? My Firefox add-ons are not doing the job they should be doing..Avatar ImageTamyris says: Dan is so cool! There was a question from a Brazilian!! So proud!! Vai Brasil!! Brasil Brasil!! It was a great question by the way. And a great answer. He´s not crazy to answer he is not a Harry Potter. Avatar Imagegot2lovme says: I really loved this interview. Shows that he's actually enjoys answering them.Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: glad to see that different questions were asked of him instead of hearing the same ones all the time
