NME Interview

“No, I don’t really have mainstream tastes,” he says. “People do ask me, ‘Why do you choose such weird movies?’ but I don’t think they’re weird, they’re just stories I’m interested in. Isn’t having weird tastes good, though? I think so. I think that’s better than always wanting to play the handsome hero. You think I’m weird? I’ll take that.”

Radcliffe is handsome but in quite a normal way – he has what your mum might call “a nice face” – which means he’s not obvious leading man material, and at around 5’5”, he’s a bit small to be an action star (though that never stopped Tom Cruise). Today, dressed all in black and with his hair sharply cropped as a souvenir from a recently completed role in Imperium, playing an FBI agent posing as a neo-Nazi, he should look intimidating. Yet he’s so effusively cheerful that he just looks… tidy. He’s 26 now, but clean-shaven, he could pass for much younger. He’s got a character actor’s face, which means he can do those strange lead roles your more traditional leading man couldn’t.
