Congratulations for Dan! He has such an amazing future in film and on stage ahead of him! I hope he wins
Congrats to Daniel Radcliffe!
yay!!! go Dan!! its good that he isnt just seen as Harry Potter now because the movies are ending soon (sobs) and he’s not just seen as the boy wizard. i havent seen december boys but is it good? i saw david copperfield when he was little and the actor who played him when he got older looks nothing like Dan. hehe!!
That’s a fantastic honor. This may sound silly, but I’m glad that Daniel is bringing good attention to theater – hopefully it will make more HP fans also theater fans down the road. :)
What a great role for a young actor!
Wow! Such a honor! Congrats Dan!! PARABÉNS( Portuguese)!!! I( do think he is a reallly good actor,but I just think Rupert is better. people dont give Rupes the deserved credit. It´s always Dan Dan Dan. Dan is awesome but Rupert is a bit more awesome. Go Rupes! Rupert has to win the Oscar campaign. hahahaha
Tamyris, this is about theater, he has never done theater, so how do you want people to talk about him if he has never done it? Doesn’t make sense. Like it doesn’t make sense to name other HP actors every time Dan does something great, everyone has their own career, and comments like that only show jealousy.
If someone wants recognition they have to take risks, work hard and don’t care about what people say. Daniel didn’t care, he worked very hard, he did a great job and now he gets the recognition he deserves. Meanwhile, Rupert laugh of him in an interview when he was asked about Equus, because of the naked scene, some time ago. But then he did a movie where he doen’t wear much clothes either, I guess he learned a good lesson, acting is not about what tabloids talk about, it’s about choosing good roles and give everyhing you have.
