Parade Magazine Feature on Dan Radcliffe

Radcliffe Interviews

The new issue of Parade magazine, carried in many weekend editions of US newspapers, will feature actor Dan Radcliffe. There is a new interview with the actor now online, as well as these new photos seen via this link. In the piece, Dan discusses taking on the role in the stage production of Equus, dating, fame and fortune, as well as aging while doing the Harry Potter films.

It will shock nobody that Radcliffe is a spectacularly sensible and articulate young man. Just like Harry. Over the years, he admits, it’s been hard to tell where Harry leaves off and he begins. “When I started out at the age of 10 or 11,” he says, “I was essentially saying the lines as I myself would say them. When I became aware that that’s what I was doing, at 13 or 14, it didn’t make sense to change, because it would suddenly be a dramatic shift in the character.” He smiles. When his mother read the sixth Harry Potter book, he remembers, she noticed that “Harry argues in the kind of irritating, pedantic way that I argue. She thought Harry and I were getting closer and closer together at that point.”

And what about the prospect of—gulp—turning 20 next month?  “I’ve noticed I make noises when I get up and sit down now,” Radcliffe says in all seriousness. “I mean, my knees are rotten bad—I refused to wear knee pads too many times when I was doing stunts, and I just clobbered them up a bit. I am an old man in a young man’s body.”

Finally, be sure to take what they are calling "The Ultimate Harry Potter Quiz." This issue of Parade will be in newspapers this weekend. Thanks much Vicki!

Good article. Interesting insight on his growth as an actor and realizing where being himself and the character intersected,lol.

Loving the picture of Dan in this interview. VERY HOT!

I love hearing from Dan. He’s always so interesting and insightful. He talks about how he hopes the $$ he gets paid for big-budget films like HP will give him the freedom to do smaller films as well. I’d love to see Dan do smaller independent films in the future. Hopefully, they’ll give him a chance to stretch himself like Equus did.

I’ve said it many times before, but I just have to say it again – I LOVE Dan!!!

Really enjoined reading the interview, as always happens with Daniel.

I don’t understand why some of you pretend to be shocked with the age stuff, he is not even the oldest of the HP male actors, actually, I think he is the youngest.
