Smooth Radio

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he would love to star in a biopic about a musical artist – but who would the Dan play?

Speaking exclusively to Smooth Radio‘s Myleene Klass, Daniel revealed: “Boy George – that’s an interesting life as well. And so is George Michael’s, I’m sure.

“I don’t think I’m a good enough singer to play either of those. I would love to do some sort of music biopic. That’d be great fun. I would love to find some excuse to sing on film. That would be awesome. Anyone listening – write those scripts.”

Discussing the idea further, Daniel continued: “All my taste is alternative and indie. The Beatles? If I grow my Potter 1 hair, I really could. Potter 1 – like the first Potter film. That’s how we refer to them.

“If I grew it — in the first Potter film, my hair was like a mini John Lennon. But no, if we’re saying that The Beatles are a guilty pleasure, then 100% – The Beatles, I will play all night. That can’t be a guilty pleasure. Who listens to them guiltily?”

Esquire Mexico Interview

New interview with Dan from Esquire Mexico. You can view the article on their website or read the English version below.

IF YOU ARE FAMOUS AT 13 OR 14 YEARS OLD, YOU MAY COME AT 20 AND YOU FIND OUT THAT YOU DON’T LIKE THE ACTION. THEN EVERYONE WILL SAY YOU ARE A FAILURE. BUT I AM LUCKY, BECAUSE IT WAS NOT MY CASE AND I WAS ALWAYS SURROUNDED BY GOOD PEOPLE 

ESQUIRE: Between cinema, television and theater, what do you enjoy doing the most?

DANIEL RADCLIFFE: I think everyone allows me to do different things. Television and cinema are very similar. My experience in TV has been much more in comedy, that’s why I think it’s so fun for me. I will always love the sets because I love being there and living the whole process. I’ve done it since I was nine years old and I love being in that world. I think the theater has helped me to be better. I have learned a lot and every time I do it with more confidence.

ESQ: Do you have any favorite genre?

D: I love comedy. Making people have fun gives you life. 

ESQ: Let’s talk about the issues that will determine the cinema during this year: which do you think will be the most important during 2020? 

D: I think you’re right … many times the tone of the movies is defined by what is happening in the United States or in Hollywood. A few years ago journalism dominated, and I think there will be a lot about politics this year, because for them it is a year of elections. I haven’t done anything like that, particularly, although I think Escape from Pretoria has a bit of that. 

ESQ: How do you decide whether to take a project or not?

D: The story is always the most important, as is the character. Generally it is when I read something and I realize that I have not done anything similar, or that it would help me to explore in my acting work; something that is original and that I would like to see in the cinema. When I did Swiss Army Man, for example, I thought: “I will never be in a movie like this; it is unique”. Other times, the decision has nothing to do with the script but with the director. 

I TRY TO WRITE. PEOPLE SUGGEST TO WRITE ABOUT WHAT IS KNOWN, BUT FOR ME IT’S DIFFICULT, BECAUSE IT IS NOT EASY FOR PEOPLE TO IDENTIFY WITH MY LIFE 

ESQ: If you could play any role, which one would you choose?

D: I don’t know. There are books I would like to be in. I would love to be Winston Smith, 1984. He is a great character in a great story. My favorite book is The Master and Margarita, if there was a role for me in that story it would be cool. It’s hard to say what I would like to be because the reason I like many characters has to do with the actor who played them, and I wouldn’t like to say that I can do better than them. I have no intention of doing anything about Shakespeare, for example, and one of the reasons I would not like it is that I have seen many of my favorite actors play their characters and I know I could not do better. 

ESQ: You started acting from an early age, how do you think you have evolved since then?

D: When you are a child on the set you just stand and say what you have memorized. I never had a process to decipher the character. As I grew up in Potter I saw how other actors did it and tried to imitate them … the process has been very gradual. When you are a teenager you are very aware of your own face and do not want to do anything weird; It’s scary not to see you cool. Growing up, I have learned to accept my own natural rarity and better take it as something that will make me unique. In short, I think it’s about that: to become less insecure. 

ESQ: What do you think makes you unique as an actor?

D: I think it would be better if the question was answered by people … there are things in which I consider myself good, and many times it has to do with throwing myself to do things; there isn’t something I don’t try, I always like to try hard.

Variety Interview: Why Dan Won’t Play Potter Again

Dan spoke to Variety about researching his role in the film Escape from Pretoria, his love of the stage and why he won’t be reprising his role as Harry Potter anytime soon.

What interested you about “Escape From Pretoria”?

Just the f—ing incredible physical riddle of it all. How they were able to open the cell door of this terrible prison with these handmade keys and escape to freedom. Also there was something nice about the fact that these were people who were eminently supportable. You’re rooting for them to get out because they should not be in prison. They are victims of an oppressive, tyrannical regime, so it seemed like a wonderful story to be a part of telling.

Did you spend a lot of time with Tim Jenkin?

I did. He was in the movie in a small role. I won’t lie. I was very intimated having him on set because I was so aware that I was sort of playing at somebody’s life. We’re all walking around in costume, in prison outfits, and there’s this guy who lived through this. I kept thinking that it must be such a weird thing for him, and I worried he’d think we were trivializing it. But he seemed to like being there and he was so generous with his time. Despite having told this story a hundred thousand times, he was patient with all of my questions and just giving and generous with his time.

Do you feel a greater responsibility when you play a real person?

You do feel a real responsibility to do it justice. Not to sound pretentious and be everything I hate about actors, but it makes you want to suffer a bit more when you know there was actual real human pain involved in the story you are telling. You feel more of an obligation to try to understand what that was like.

When you say you feel a need to suffer more, what do you mean? Do you consider yourself to be a method actor?

I already hate that answer I just gave. Can I take it back? I’m not a method actor at all. I’m all about breaking down a script and figuring out what I’ll need to do. Occasionally I’ll listen to music to get in the mood for certain scenes, but generally my approach is to just know the lines well and give the director as many different options as we have time for. To try the scene in many different ways. That’s what works for me.

There are a number of articles that talk about your “weird” career choices since you finished the “Harry Potter” series. You’ve certainly made a lot of off-beat films like “Horns” and “Swiss Army Man,” but do you agree with that characterization?

I accept the label in that there’s nothing I’ve shied away from. But I wasn’t like, “find me the weirdest thing out there.” I wasn’t picking projects that were weird for weird’s sake. “Swiss Army Man” was weird in that it’s about a farting corpse coming back to life and that’s not for everybody. At the same time, it’s an incredibly smart film that has something beautiful to say about being human. I’ve done “Guns Akimbo,” where I’ve had guns bolted to my hands, but I’ve also done “Escape From Pretoria,” which is really grounded in reality. I think people saw me play one thing for so long that it seems more notable that I do loads of different stuff now.

Would you return as Harry Potter in the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” films?

I don’t think so. I don’t like say no to things, but it’s not something that I’m rushing to do. I feel like those films have moved on and they’re doing just fine without us. I’m happy to keep it that way. I like what my life is now. I’m not saying that I’ll never go back into any franchise, but I like the flexibility that I have with my career now. And I don’t want to get into a situation where I’m signed up for one series for years in advance.

You are performing opposite Alan Cumming in “Endgame” in the West End. Do you have any plans to bring that to Broadway?

I would love to come back to Broadway. I don’t know if it will be with “Endgame,” but I’ll definitely be back. Broadway and New York have been so kind to me and it’s such a fulfilling place to work. I’m going to find a way to get back as soon as I can.

ET Canada: Daniel Radcliffe Talks Career Path

Glamour: Please Don’t Ask Daniel Radcliffe What Makes Him Sexy

Dan answers Inappropriate Questions, Glamour’s column that asks all the cheeky, slightly off-kilter stuff best saved for a second (or better yet, third) date. Reader, he immediately started talking about his penis. And his love language.

Glamour: I’m going to ask you some inappropriate questions.

Daniel Radcliffe: Oh Jesus!

In Guns Akimbo, your character carries his phone around even though he’s being tracked by murderers because he wants his ex to text him back so badly. I thought that was relatable! Was that kind of desperation familiar to you?

Not, I am happy to say, in recent days. But when I was a teenager? Yeah, 100%. I’ve been with my girlfriend now for eight years, so it’s been a long time since I stressed over a text, but absolutely I was one of those people that was analyzing, “How long should I wait before I text somebody?” And then, “Is it too much to put a kiss? Is two kisses just insane? What if they don’t write any back? That means they hate you!” All that mental cycling around, I did a lot of that.

I was watching the movie and taking notes and one just says, “Oh shit! We see his penis!” Was that you, or did you use a body double?

No, that is not me. I am, uh—you know, I’m Jewish! So that will give you enough information as to why that is not my penis. It’s not actually anyone’s; it’s a prosthetic.

Did you get to pick the prosthetic penis?

Um, no. [Laughs.] It was more a case of—they had to do, I guess, a color skin match so that it would be appropriate for me. Also, I think, if I’m correct, you don’t see any balls? Because the balls of that prosthetic penis were…not good. I don’t know what it had been made for; it was not made specifically for the film, I don’t think. A lot was going wrong with the very downstairs part.

You are correct about the balls. Do you believe in astrology?

I do not, no. I’m very boring and skeptical. Which is a shame because I think I’m on the cusp of Cancer and Leo, which is a cool thing to say, because on the cusp is a…I don’t know if that sounds cool. But it doesn’t yet, none of it means anything to me, I’m afraid.

I’ve read that you’re into poetry. Who do you think is the sexiest poet?

Oh! Well! I mean, Shelley and Keats. Well, Keats wasn’t really sexy. Keats was like very, very romantic but probably not sexy. Shelley was probably quite sexy. Byron, if anything, was too sexy. They all looked like very, very handsome young men who also were incredibly talented writers. Byron is just the one that you go, “You seem like you may be a terrible human being, even if you wrote beautiful poetry.”

All too common. What is the most romantic thing you’ve ever done?

Obviously, as a teenager who liked poetry, I wrote tremendous amounts of horrible teenage love poetry. I’ve done the, like, flying in when someone doesn’t know you’re gonna fly in to surprise them, when they don’t expect you to be in the country, and you just sort of arrive on the doorstep.

It’s going to open a really good dialogue about sex positivity and honesty!

Absolutely! But I feel like—in terms of love languages, or whatever that is—is one of them gestures? Because that is not my love language.

What do you think is your love language?

Isn’t one of them just telling people? And touch?

Words of affirmation?

Words of affirmation! That’s definitely very much me. And I feel like touch, those would be my two main ones.

Does that match well with your girlfriend?

I hope so! We’ve been together eight years. I hope, if not, she’d say something.

What is the most inappropriate thing a fan has ever said to you?

Well, I had a very weird one the other night. A woman the other night at the play came up to me and went, “I just want you to know that my aunt saw you in Equus. And she wants me to tell you that your chest hair is far too much for her.” And it was all really said with the sense of “I know you wanted to date my aunt who you’ve never met or heard from before, but now you can’t.”

Have you ever ghosted anyone?

Ah, yes. I think I definitely did. Not to keep going back to when I was a teenager, because apparently the more I do the more I sound like I was a really shitty teenager, but I’m sure I did that to somebody.

What happened? Why’d you do it?

Oh, because I was young and stupid and terrified of confrontation and honesty. So probably that. It wasn’t like a serious relationship relationship. But I definitely would have done that when I was like, oh God, 16 or 17? Oh man. I have learned.

Ghosted by Daniel Radcliffe! Oof. What’s the weirdest thing you do when you’re alone?

I catch myself being very stupid when I’m alone. I’ve apologized to inanimate objects in my flat before. Like, I opened the fridge once and coughed in it and didn’t cover my mouth and just said, “Oh, sorry!” to no one. I talk to myself.

I had to get permission from my editor to ask this question: Do you think Harry and Ginny ever had sex on Hogwarts property?

I don’t know! I’m now also trying to remember the ages that they are at the various points of the film, and I don’t want to get either of these fictional characters into trouble, so I’m going to pass on that one.

What’s the sexiest thing about you?

Oh, God. Please don’t ask me that. You’d have to ask my girlfriend. Um, I dunno. Oh, God. Sorry.

Newsweek: Magic Won’t Help Daniel Radcliffe in ‘Escape from Pretoria’

How do you feel this story is relevant today? What do you hope modern audiences take from it?

Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s ever a time when it’s not relevant. The fact that Tim and Stephen and all the guys in that prison were able to see the system that they had been raised in from the outside for the immoral, oppressive tyranny that it was.

Why do you feel it was important for the film to play like a thriller?

It is also an incredible prison-break story. It’s amazing. They made keys. What’s crazy when you talk to Tim, he kind of has an air of, “Well, you know, I just did what anyone would do,” and you’re just like, “No, no one else would’ve been able to do this.”

You worked with your co-star Ian Hart as a child in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone [as Quirrell]. What was it like working together all these years later?

I think it gave both of us a terrifying sense of the passage of time. It’s lovely.

What’s something that you’re rarely asked about the Harry Potter franchise that you wish you were asked more often?

People always want to talk about actors hanging out, but I would talk about the crew until the cows come home, because I feel like there was a family feel on set that is rarely felt on franchise films—a real caring atmosphere that I think the crew was responsible for.

Sharp Interview

One afternoon in early March, Daniel Radcliffe walked into the makeup room backstage at the Old Vic theatre in London to get his hair done for that evening’s performance of Endgame, the Samuel Beckett play he’d been starring in with Alan Cumming. A hairdresser was there waiting to confront him with some rather shocking news. “You’ve got coronavirus,” the hairdresser declared.

This was news to Radcliffe, who felt healthy enough. So the hairdresser showed him the apparent source of the claim: a tweet, from an account calling itself “BBC Breaking News,” which read, “Daniel Radcliffe tests positive for coronavirus.” That was all it took for the rumour to go, uh, viral. His girlfriend, the actress Erin Darke, had to spend the afternoon reassuring friends that he was okay. “Every time I saw someone for the rest of the day, I didn’t know if they’d heard it,” Radcliffe told me. “I didn’t want to lead with ‘I don’t have it,’ but I didn’t want them thinking, ‘Oh my God, he’s being so irresponsible, to have the virus and just be walking around here.’ ”

Of course, the tweet was yet another celebrity hoax. But just days later, Endgame was cancelled two weeks before the end of its scheduled run. Hours after the cancellation was announced, Radcliffe was on one of the final flights to New York before the border was closed to international travel. As for so-called “social distancing” measures, fans have evidently not been taking them under advisement. “I’ve felt very rude over the past 24 hours,” he laughs. “People at the airport were sticking their hands out, trying to get selfies, and I’m like, ‘No, sorry, I’m literally going to America and I don’t want to catch something and not be allowed to get in.’ ” He made it in the end, and I’ve caught up with him via FaceTime at the beginning of his two-week government-mandated self-isolation.

Radcliffe concedes he was an ideal candidate for the fake-news prank. He’s one of the most well-liked and widely recognizable film stars in the world, for the simple reason that almost everyone in the world has seen and likes Harry Potter. And he’s one of the few celebrities under the age of about 45 who doesn’t use social media, meaning he can’t dismiss gossip with a tweet. “I honestly don’t think I have the mental fortitude to be on Twitter. Besides, I’ve been shoved down people’s throats since I was 10 years old. If I were on Twitter, tweeting every day, I feel like people would get sick of me. I’d get sick of me. Ugh.” Other actors, he’s quick to point out, are “fucking amazing” on social media. “And good luck to them. But I’d get bored of myself. God knows how the rest of the world would cope.”

A decade of Potter made Radcliffe ubiquitous. His face was inescapable, on t-shirts and action figures, on backpacks and coffee mugs. The amazing thing about Daniel Radcliffe now isn’t that he remains hugely famous. That was inevitable. (“The Potter films made something like five billion dollars worldwide, to put it crudely,” he says.) The amazing thing about Daniel Radcliffe now is that he’s managed to establish a career totally separate from the colossal franchise with which he’s synonymous. He has steadfastly refused to let Harry Potter define him — and so he has proceeded, over the decade that followed, to make everyone take him seriously as more than just the familiar kid wizard.

“I’m lucky,” he says. “Most actors live with this thing where the next thing they do could be the biggest thing they ever do. Whereas I’m like, no, I’ve done the biggest thing I’ll ever do,” he says. “I will never be in anything as massive as Harry Potter again. At a certain point, that becomes a hugely liberating realization: I’ve been freed from that definition of success.”

Radcliffe’s pursuit of creative freedom comes to a head this spring, when a wide swath of his interesting projects will be released. There’s the hyper-violent action movie Guns Akimbo, and Escape from Pretoria, a heady drama about political prisoners in South Africa. There’s his TV work, including the upcoming supernatural comedy series Miracle Workers, in which he stars alongside Steve Buscemi, and the new special of Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. And of course there was that Beckett play.

Radcliffe, now 30, laid the groundwork for change early, before Potter had even finished. In 2007, between Order of the Phoenix and The Half-Blood Prince, Radcliffe realized that he would “need to do something to achieve longevity” after the mega-franchise came to an eventual end. So he made the audacious choice to star in Equus, the famous (and famously difficult) Peter Shaffer play about a young man obsessed with horses. Even if you didn’t see Equus in London or on Broadway, you probably saw some of the promotional stills used to advertise the production, much-circulated in tabloids at the time. They showed Radcliffe, brooding and shirtless, six-pack abs flaring as he strokes a stallion’s mane. “Yeah, yeah, I know,” he groans when I mention it. “But doing that play sent a signal. It’s not a play you do unless you really want to be an actor — and not just because of the nudity.”

His performance in Equus was well-received by critics. (“Thank God,” Radcliffe jokes.) But he witnessed glimpses of how precarious the situation was — how perilously near he’d come to humiliation, his dream of being taken seriously dashed in an instant. “One of those supportive English papers like The Daily Mail ran a headline that said something like, ‘Crash — What’s That — The Sound of Dan Radcliffe’s Career Coming to a Grinding Halt.’ An unwieldy headline, I know, but when I saw that, I was suddenly like, ‘Oh, man, this has to be good. I have to be decent in this.’ ” So he worked on enunciation and projection with a vocal coach for 18 months. “I didn’t want them faulting me for that. Some of them probably did fault me for that, but not nearly as much as if I hadn’t done all that work.”

“From the moment you start acting as a kid, you’re confronted with the perception that child actors are dicks. Getting to show a little self-awareness was very valuable.”

Around the same time he made his serious stage debut, he was invited to appear as an exaggerated caricature of himself in an episode of Extras, Ricky Gervais’s BBC comedy. An avowed Gervais superfan (“I grew up watching The Office and could still quote whole episodes back to you,” he says), he was ecstatic about the cameo. Extras finds Radcliffe co-starring in a fantasy film with Warwick Davis. Between takes, he runs amok around the set, showing off that he smokes cigarettes and hitting on women twice his age. (“I’ve made it with a girl, intercourse-wise,” he brags at one point.) For Radcliffe, the jokes rang true. “From the moment you start acting as a kid, you’re confronted with the perception that child actors are dicks,” he explains. “Getting to show a little self-awareness, to convince people I have a sense of humour about myself, was very valuable.”

In 2013, at the Toronto International Film Festival, you could have seen Radcliffe in three very different movies playing three very different roles: the charming leading man in an independent romantic comedy (The F Word), the devilish anti-hero of an idiosyncratic supernatural thriller (Horns), and the great beat poet Allen Ginsberg (Kill Your Darlings). The timing was unintentional, if convenient. “If you wanted to see my versatility as an actor after Potter,” he says, “that TIFF was the place for me to convince you I had some range.” Yet he maintains he never chooses films because they’re different or unusual. “If it seems like an eclectic mix, it’s because I don’t see them that way. I do it because I just happen to like the movie — and sometimes I just happen to play, like, a farting corpse that comes back to life.” (That one is real. It’s called Swiss Army Man. )

In his downtime, Radcliffe isn’t much of a cinephile. (He sort-of liked ParasiteOnce Upon a Time… in Hollywood “felt a little bit long.”) Mostly, he watches documentaries on Netflix. “I don’t watch a huge amount of films, is my honest answer,” he confesses. “If the film is bad, I hate it immediately and want to stop but feel obligated to finish and just drag it out and don’t enjoy it. If it’s good, I get stressed out and sad because I’ll never get to be in it.” This hang-up, he knows, sounds “really stupid and narcissistic.” But he can’t help it. “As an actor, when you see something great, you’re like, ‘Oh, man, that’s already been made! I’ll never be in that now, and if they remade it, it would be shitty.’ ”

He likens his career now to that of Robert Pattinson. Both became famous on the strength of starring roles in tent-pole youth franchises. Both have avoided blockbusters ever since, instead favouring lower-budget projects and more eccentric work. “Rob and I were both lucky to be in something super huge when we were young, and that’s given us a lot of independence, and we both seem to be like, ‘Okay, let’s use that to do as much cool stuff as we can.’ ” Although he insists his name alone is “absolutely not enough to get a film financed,” he admits that putting the weight of his star power behind a project can sometimes get smaller projects made. “If having played Harry Potter helps people see these small movies I want to make, I’m very much okay with that,” he says.

But enjoying freedom in his career doesn’t mean he’s not ambitious. He still has goals and dreams, things he wants to do someday. Chief among them: writing and directing his own feature. “I’ve watched a lot of directors and I think it would be something I’d really enjoy,” he explains. “I don’t take it lightly. It’s a difficult job. But that’s something I want to start in the next few years.” Well, he will have at least the next few weeks on his hands, I point out — perhaps he should get writing. “I know, I know,” he groans. “Everyone’s sending this King Lear shit ’round. I know how unproductive Shakespeare is supposed to make the rest of us feel.” Still, you never know. “I have the next 14 days at least. I’ve started on a script. I might as well use this time to finish it.”

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Here’s your first look at Dan playing Fredrick on the upcoming Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Interactive Special titled: Kimmy vs. the Reverend coming on May 12. First photo can be viewed below.

 Daniel Radcliffe plays Prince Frederick Windsor, a young royal, 12th in line to the British throne. “That sounds far away but is actually pretty f—ing close; I looked it up,” says Dan from New York City’s Plaza Hotel, where the cast is shooting a certain (candy-colored, this is Kimmy!) celebration. “Frederick’s had a very sheltered life so he’s rather oblivious, but a very good-hearted human.”

Frederick and Kimmy’s unique connection is shown in little ways. For instance: Remember Jan, the backpack? Well, the prince can see and hear her too. Radcliffe admits his character’s as quirky as the rest, “but he absolutely loves Kimmy, and I hope people will be happy that she gets a prince — well, a prince with caveats.”

See why Daniel Radcliffe Was Unfazed by Playing a Royal in the ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Special

While the special sees a lot of returning favorites, like Amy Sedaris, Chris Parnell and Fred Armisen in various recurring roles, nothing beats the addition of Radcliffe, who plays an emotionally-stunted royal who is 12th in line to the throne. The  whole experience was like a crazy dream — in a good way. “I got to go in and play this ridiculous character and say some incredibly funny lines,” he says. “So yeah, it was a joy.”

GMA Network Interview

Where are you isolating these days and how are you dealing with what’s going on in the world?

I am in New York right now. I’m in an incredibly fortunate position like I’ve got a lot of friends who are either isolating or quarantining alone right now [because] I’m with my girlfriend which is lovely, you know. I’m very, very grateful for that. 

Also, we are not having to try to home-school children or entertain children 24 hours a day, which seems it would be very, very challenging. So yeah, we’re in, you know, everyone is safe and healthy and staying indoors so, yeah, we’re okay. Thanks for asking. I hope you’re well too.

Are you finding yourself doing different things? How do you keep busy?

Well, I’ve done a lot of Lego. It’s very good, passes a lot of time and is sort of meditative. You get to make a cool thing at the end. I recently built a “Jurassic Park” and a “Stranger Things” set with Lego.

I’ve been doing like a lot of reading, and yesterday I finally did some writing. I have been trying every day. It has been a thing of getting up and thinking that today is the day, do something productive and I haven’t really for the previous however long it’s been 6 weeks or whatever. So finally, I felt a little bit productive yesterday so hopefully more of that to come. 

Talk about your relationship with Kimmy Schmidt and being part of this unique interactive episode?

The filming of it was tricky for lots of people, namely the director and the script supervisor and, costume and make-up having to remember where everything was at every moment but for the actors, all we had to do was learn all the various versions of the scenes. 

Beyond that, it wasn’t really – the burden of responsibility of making sure that we were in the right timeline every time was not on us so much but I loved it. I hadn’t seen anything like that before.

I was a huge fan of “30 Rock” and Tina Fey. It’s this style of comedy that I love and it’s all these tightly wound, very like thoroughly plotted out things but there’s also a joke every 10 seconds and it’s the kind of writing that I could never do myself. So I’m in awe of it and I love watching and getting to be a part of it. It was so incredible.

What are you discovering about yourself during this lockdown? Are you learning how to cook, paint?

I definitely am not one of the people who have learned any new skills in quarantine yet. I have a lot of respect for anyone who’s like learning to sew or bake or any of that stuff, that’s very impressive. I have not done any of that. 

I think I’m finding out about myself that for about 23 hours of the day, I’m pretty okay staying inside. At first it felt slowly inhibiting, but now I’ve settled into a rhythm and also we’re incredibly lucky that we’re here together.

We have got very little responsibilities during this time so all we have to do is stay inside and keep ourselves entertained so that’s good.

How do you find time for yourself since you are isolating with your girlfriend right now? Do you go to another room?

I don’t feel the need for it that much. We both like to read a lot so when you’re reading and you’ve got your head in a book that’s quite like “me time.”

You mentioned you are doing a bit of writing. What type of writing are you doing?

Attempting to write scripts. I know every actor is also writing scripts on the side now so it’s something that we all seem to be wanting to do but I would love to be able to write and direct a film. They are in the realms of slightly dark comedies and so hopefully one day, I’ll get to make one.

DAN RESPONDS TO J.K. ROWLING’S TWEETS ON GENDER IDENTITY

June 8, 2020

I realize that certain press outlets will probably want to paint this as in-fighting between J.K. Rowling and myself, but that is really not what this is about, nor is it what’s important right now. While Jo is unquestionably responsible for the course my life has taken, as someone who has been honored to work with and continues to contribute to The Trevor Project for the last decade, and just as a human being, I feel compelled to say something at this moment.

Transgender women are women. Any statement to the contrary erases the identity and dignity of transgender people and goes against all advice given by professional health care associations who have far more expertise on this subject matter than either Jo or I. According to The Trevor Project, 78% of transgender and nonbinary youth reported being the subject of discrimination due to their gender identity. It’s clear that we need to do more to support transgender and nonbinary people, not invalidate their identities, and not cause further harm.

I am still learning how to be a better ally, so if you want to join me in learning more about transgender and nonbinary identities check out The Trevor Project’s Guide to Being an Ally to Transgender and Nonbinary Youth. It’s an introductory educational resource that covers a wide range of topics, including the differences between sex and gender, and shares best practices on how to support transgender and nonbinary people.

To all the people who now feel that their experience of the books has been tarnished or diminished, I am deeply sorry for the pain these comments have caused you. I really hope that you don’t entirely lose what was valuable in these stories to you. If these books taught you that love is the strongest force in the universe, capable of overcoming anything; if they taught you that strength is found in diversity, and that dogmatic ideas of pureness lead to the oppression of vulnerable groups; if you believe that a particular character is trans, nonbinary, or gender fluid, or that they are gay or bisexual; if you found anything in these stories that resonated with you and helped you at any time in your life — then that is between you and the book that you read, and it is sacred. And in my opinion nobody can touch that. It means to you what it means to you and I hope that these comments will not taint that too much.

Love always,
Dan

From Magic to Real Life

New interview from El Sol de Irapuato it talks about Escape from Pretoria in a phone interview with Dan in London.

About Escape from Pretoria

“We are living in a time when it is important to tell the stories of people who have heroic qualities to be celebrated, of people with enormous courage, but who at the same time have great principles and sacrifice so much for their ideals. That’s always something important as an actor,” Radcliffe tells via telephone from London. 

Dan devoted three months for preparation to learn the South African accent and the escape plan. Here’s what Dan had to say about Tim Jenkin.

“We talked a lot about what it meant to grow up in South Africa and how the social awakening to apartheid was. He told me about the day-to-day protests, what it was like to get to prison and the step-by-step escape plan; that helped me get practical details of how and where he hid the tools to sand the wood or the technique to do it, among many other things. It was very rare to hear all these stories coming directly from him” ” he says.

Book Review: Living Dead Girl

My Review: I didn’t have enough time to read much of it. But from what I did read it started off as two friends that enjoyed each other’s company and a bit of a hidden secret that Kaitlyn hid from her friend Dana. I am hoping to read more soon.

About Kelly:

Kelly Gunderman was born a child of the late eighties in small-town Pennsylvania. A bibliophile in her own right, she is hoping to one day surpass the number of pages she has turned with those she has written of her own accord.

Having recently completed her Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Development, Kelly suddenly found herself with a bit more free time than usual, and began her immediately successful foray into blogging and Freelance Writing, which subsequently led to her renewed desire to finally put her ideas and imaginings “on paper.”

Focusing primarily on the Young Adult genre, Kelly’s first novel, Finding Me, was published by Swoon Romance, and she is currently working on putting even more stories on paper.

She currently resides in her original home town with her husband, their two daughters, and a few cats that constantly challenge the sanity of all with their ill-advised attempts at what can only be assumed to be world domination.

“He’s aware of how much he means to so many people and takes it upon himself to operate in the world with grace and humility.” Karan Soni, Daniel’s Miracle Workers co-star

His co-star Karan Soni opened up about working with the actor on comedy series Miracle Workers, telling HELLO!: “Daniel Radcliffe is everything you want him to be. Like many others, I grew up watching him and found myself quite starstruck when we first met. Dan instantly relaxed me with his kindness.

“He’s aware of how much he means to so many people and takes it upon himself to operate in the world with grace and humility. His passion for acting hasn’t dimmed after all these years of doing it. His work ethic is infectious and it is only surpassed by his capacity to care for others.”

How Daniel Has Prepared For His Past Roles

Actors are always looking to enhance their roles with real life experience. While this can be hard to come by, especially when their characters often lead extreme lives, actors find ways to prepare themselves and get a glimpse into the necessary lifestyle. Daniel Radcliffe is no different and since his Harry Potter days, he has actually played a variety of very distinct and unique roles. Here is a look into how he prepared himself to play these diverse characters.

Now You See Me 2

In the 2016 film Now You See Me 2, we were able to see Daniel in an entertaining role as the somewhat maniacal young tech tycoon. This was an interesting side to Daniel’s acting skills and overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable film. For this role, Daniel decided to really embrace the atmosphere that the film showcases. 

To get a firm understanding of the true ambience and draw of the Macau setting, Radcliffe dove into the famous casino scene here. He decided to start with the historically prominent gaming staple Blackjack, which has been a part of casino culture for decades. After this, he tried his luck with Baccarat, a game that is a popular attraction in most Asian casinos. It doesn’t stop there either. Daniel also worked with celebrity magician Dynamo to understand some of the tricks of the trade, things he then utilized on the set. 

Jungle

For the 2017 film Jungle, Daniel understood this would be a physically challenging role that required him to change his physique drastically. The character Daniel was portraying was Yossi Ghinsburg, an Israeli that went missing in the Amazon Rainforest for weeks, battling starvation and the many threats of this wild and uncharted landscape. 

During the shooting, Daniel showed the dedication to his craft that makes him such an inspiration for his fans. To put himself in the mindset of this character as well as physically look the part, Daniel forced himself to follow a strict diet of just one chicken breast and one protein bar every day to really lean out as well as get into the necessary mindset to understand such a desperate situation. In the final days of shooting the most destitute of moments for the film, he stopped eating completely. It has been reported that Daniel lost 14 pounds from his already petite frame in preparation for Jungle. 

Horns

Daniel may have spent his early years playing Harry Potter and fighting the dark side, but in the 2013 comedy-horror film Horns he became the darkness. This film has a lot of devilish elements as the main character, Ignatius Perrish, suddenly grows horns and gains supernatural powers following a tragedy in his life. To prepare for filming this, Daniel Radcliffe tossed out the indie rock playlists and instead listened to heavy metal around the clock, particularly the band Megadeth and songs like Sweating Bullets. This helped him to get into the rock and roll spirit and find the energy he needed to excel in this film. 

Swiss Army Man

After playing his most famous role of Harry Potter for a full decade, it’s clear that Daniel could only pursue unusual roles after this. Whether it is his personal tastes or how Hollywood sees him, his post-Harry Potter performances are certainly not the norm. One of his most unorthodox performances came in the 2016 black comedy film Swiss Army Man. In this creative film, Daniel played a literal corpse and throughout the film he was required to show a plethora of emotions with very minimal facial movement and an arsenal of strange sounds. 

Daniel regularly said that he was immensely stressed in the production of this film as he had no idea how to portray this character. He spent hours recording unintentionally hilarious sounds and faces and sending it to the director to get feedback. All of this culminated in the film and whether you loved it or hated it, it certainly is a very memorable piece of cinema history. 

Beast of Burden


In 2018’s Beast of Burden, Daniel played the role of an American pilot who is tasked with flying drugs across the US/Mexico border. Of course, he must sidestep both the DEA and the Mexican cartels and return in one piece. Daniel was dedicated to learning the skills necessary to be a pilot and went out for multiple flying lessons both as a passenger and even briefly in the cockpit to understand what it really entails. Though the film itself was not very successful, the memory of the experience will certainly stay with Daniel for his entire life.

First Look: Miracle Workers Season 3

Set in the 1840s, an idealistic small-town preacher (Daniel Radcliffe) teams up with a wanted outlaw (Steve Buscemi) and a liberated prairie wife (Geraldine Viswanathan) to lead a wagon train west on the Oregon Trail, in a comedic adventure across an American landscape which — like today — is fraught with both peril and promise.

New Project: Lost City Of D

Daniel Radcliffe is set to play the villain in Paramount’s romantic action adventure comedy The Lost City of D starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum. Patti Harrison and Da’Vine Joy Randolph are also on board. Bullock is producing through her Fortis Films banner with Liza Chasin and her company 3dot Productions. Seth Gordon is also attached to produce via Exhibit A.

The story follows a reclusive romance novelist (Bullock) who was sure nothing could be worse than getting stuck on a book tour with her cover model (Tatum) until a kidnapping attempt sweeps them both into a cutthroat jungle adventure, proving life can be so much stranger, and more romantic, than any of her paperback fictions.

Access Hollywood caught up with the star, who is reflecting on his time as the famous wizard. “Franky, I was learning to act a lot of those years,” he said. “Harry was a character that was obviously changing and developing a lot so it wasn’t playing the same thing every year.” Daniel is now starring as a preacher in season three of “Miracle Workers” alongside Steve Buscemi. He compared his time on the show, where he changes character each season, to his longstanding role in “Harry Potter.” “There was a lot to keep me interested [in the “Harry Potter” films], but then there is something joyous about getting to do this thing that you know you’re only going to do once,” he said. Steve echoed his sentiment, comparing his role on “Boardwalk Empire” to the Outlaw he plays in the new season of “Miracle Workers.”

Mental Floss Shelfies

Mental Floss did a Shelfies version of what’s on Dan’s Selves. So here’s what he had to share.

1. A FRAMED BROADWAY BOW TIE

“This is the bow tie from the poster shoot for How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, a musical I did in New York about 10 years ago,

2. AN EPIC DOG PORTRAIT

“This is a portrait of a dog we fostered that our friends then adopted. It’s a long story; suffice to say we are now dog godparents,” he says. “There is a company that will transpose a photo of your (or a friend’s) pet into a painting in the style of a historical portrait. This is Lex in some sort of 18th century military regalia. This is very stupid and brings me a ridiculous amount of joy.”

3. A SCRABBLE BOARD

“This is a super fancy Scrabble board my parents gave me for Christmas many years ago,” Radcliffe says. “There’s not much else to say about it! It’s just cool!”

4. NANO: THE SPECTACULAR SCIENCE OF THE VERY (VERY) SMALL

“One of my best friends, who I’ve known since I was 14 and is an incredibly clever and wonderful human being called Dr. Jess Wade, has recently written a book about nanoscience for children!” Radcliffe says. “It’s brilliantly written and beautifully illustrated [by Melissa Castrillón] and I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn’t want to explain nanoscience to their children themselves!”

In addition to writing a book and working her day job as a physicist at Imperial College London, Wade is on a mission to diversify the profiles of scientists featured on Wikipedia—so it’s fitting that the book is accompanied by a LEGO of Margaret Hamilton, a key player in NASA’s Apollo project, as well as a LEGO that references astronomer Nancy G. Roman, a.k.a. the “Mother of Hubble.” Nano is out September 14.

5. YODA LEGO FIGURE

“I felt I had to include some LEGO here as it does occupy a lot of space on the shelves now due to an early pandemic flurry of LEGO-making activity, that has admittedly tailed off since I’ve been working again,” he says. “I particularly like LEGO Yoda because the eyes are slightly too real and give him a kind of permanently haunted/anxious look, which I was not expecting from the picture on the box, but which I very much related to in the early part of the pandemic.”

Synopsis

Sandra Bullock plays brilliant but reclusive author Loretta Sage, famous for writing romance-adventure novels, all of which feature handsome model Alan (Tatum) on the cover. Alan, whom Tatum describes as a “modern-day Fabio,” has dedicated his life to embodying the hero character, Dash. While on tour promoting her new book with Alan, Loretta is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire named Fairfax (played by Daniel Radcliffe) who hopes that she can lead him to the ancient treasure from her latest story. Thrust into an epic jungle adventure, the unlikely pair will need to work together to survive the elements and find the treasure before it’s lost forever.

USA Today Interview

New interview on Dan from USA Today talking about the Lost City and much more.

Daniel Radcliffe says that Abigail Fairfax, the villain he plays in “The Lost City” (in theaters Friday), was written as an impeccably dressed, totally together billionaire searching for treasure in the tropics.

But that was before Radcliffe, 32, landed in the Dominican Republic heat to shoot the adventure comedy, in which Fairfax kidnaps a romance novelist (Sandra Bullock) to help decipher an ancient key to a hidden jungle fortune.

“At one point, I was holding one fan, while two other people were holding other fans just to keep me from sweating through the costume of this guy, who is supposed to look calm, cool and collected at all times,” says Radcliffe. “I was like, guys, that’s not gonna happen.”

Question: A villain named Abigail Fairfax doesn’t exactly scream Voldemort for evildoer street cred. Did you call your agent when you found out your character’s name? 

Daniel Radcliffe: I found it funny, especially when Abigail Fairfax describes it as a gender-neutral name. But the thing was, the film staff would check us all into hotels in the Dominican Republic under our character names. So the hotel staff would be calling me Abigail. I would have to tell them, ‘It’s Dan. Please call me Dan.’

Will Miracle Workers Season 4 air on HBO Max?

American DadMiracle Workers and Snowpiercer Among TBS/TNT Series in Limbo Amid Scripted Exodus

Believed to be the cabler’s last remaining live-action comedy, Miracle Workers was renewed for Season 4 in November — also pre-merger. The pickup was announced in tandem with a series order for Damon Wayans Jr. comedy Kill the Orange-Faced Bear… which was subsequently killed by WBD in April, just a week out from production.

While the Daniel Radcliffe/Steve Buscemi anthology is currently shooting Season 4, it seems unlikely the new episodes will air on TBS. But there is hope: Unlike Chad and SnowpiercerMiracle Workers has not disappeared from HBO Max, signaling a potential jump to the streamer.

“It’s always so rewarding when you make something and you love it,” declares Daniel Radcliffe about portraying the larger-than-life satirist Weird Al Yankovic. For our recent webchat he adds, “The whole experience of shooting this movie was so special and fun, and then to put that out into the world and for it to inspire the same feeling in the people who watch it; you can’t really ask for anything more than that as an actor or a performer. So yeah, the reactions that the film’s gotten have been amazing.”

My life’s an absolute mystery to me in terms of how anything happens,” he said. “I won the lottery when I was 11 and have been trying to capitalize on it ever since in terms of being allowed to keep doing this. If you’d told me when I was finishing ‘Potter’ that I’d be doing things like this, I would absolutely not have believed you.

David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived Documentary

Daniel Radcliffe has boarded the upcoming HBO original documentary “David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived” as an executive producer, in addition to being prominently featured in the film as an interview subject. The movie, set to debut in November, chronicles the life of Radcliffe’s “Harry Potter” stunt double, who worked closely alongside Radcliffe from “Sorcerer’s Stone” all the way to “Deathly Hallows Part 1” when he was tragically paralyzed during a set accident. Holmes broke his neck performing a stunt and was paralyzed from the chest down.

“The film is a coming-of-age story of stuntman David Holmes, a prodigious teenage gymnast from Essex, England, who is selected to play Daniel Radcliffe’s stunt double in the first ‘Harry Potter’ film, when Daniel is just 11. Over the next 10 years, the two form an inextricable bond, but on the penultimate film a tragic accident on set leaves David paralyzed with a debilitating spinal injury, turning his world upside down. As Daniel and his closest stunt colleagues rally to support David and his family in their moment of need, it is David’s extraordinary spirit of resilience that becomes their greatest source of strength and inspiration.”

David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived premieres on HBO on Wednesday November 15 at 9pm EST, before being made available to stream on Max in the US. UK viewers can stream it on Sky Documentaries and NOW from November 18.

USA Today Interview

“Dark Ages” is the second installment of the “Miracle Workers” anthology series, created by Simon Rich (FXX’s “Man Seeking Woman”) and both starring Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi and Geraldine Viswanathan. But while Season 1 was based on Rich’s 2013 book “What in God’s Name” and followed low-level angels in a corporate version of heaven, Season 2 is set in Medieval times, as the bumbling Chauncley grapples with inheriting the throne from his bloodthirsty father (Peter Serafinowicz). 

Radcliffe, 30, says “Dark Ages” is “Game of Thrones” meets “The Simpsons,” and strikes a unique tone of being “sweet and charming, but also very profane and stupid and funny.” He chats with USA TODAY about the show, and life after “Harry Potter.” 

Question: What are some similarities between your characters Craig (in Season 1) and Chauncley (in Season 2)? 

Daniel Radcliffe: They’re both socially inept but come from completely different places. Craig’s social ineptitude is caused by him being overly analytical and self-aware, whereas Chauncley has no self-awareness. He starts as someone who’s psychotically stupid, and his journey is one of starting to become a good person by the end. It’s a very different role for me – I’ve never done anything this broad before. It’s very hard to find a grounded and subtle way of playing someone who dances with ducks. 

Q: Given the medieval setting, did you have to learn how to swordfight or ride horses? 

Radcliffe: I got out of that, thankfully. When we were first doing the show, I was like, “I’m definitely going to have to ride.” I can get on a horse and go from point A to point B, but I don’t love it. I also didn’t have to do any sort of fighting, because my character’s a coward. Really, the only thing I had to do was called “duck training,” where I’d stand there for 10 minutes, and the (animal handlers) would be like, “Pick up the duck. Now put it down again. Cool, need anything else from us?” 

Q: Aside from the cast, are there any connective threads between the stories in seasons 1 and 2?  

Radcliffe: We discovered some as we were going along, but I don’t even know if they’re intentional. It’s really little things, like a scene where me and Geraldine’s character end up spreading a map out on a table and poring over it and working out a plan, which is an echo of something from the first season, (which was) thematically about finding the bravery to be yourself. And the second has a more parental theme: How do we love our parents, and how do we move away from (them)? But done in the craziest, most heightened context.  

Q: You’ve appeared in Broadway shows, independent films and now TV series in the decade since “Harry Potter.” What was the most difficult part of making that transition? 

Radcliffe: There’s a lovely thing, which is that I’m open to some weirder stuff. Well, maybe other people say it’s weird, but I just think it’s fun. And weird begets weird, so then you become known for responding to those scripts and get sent (them). What I had to learn is that I’m in a position very few actors are in, which is you have autonomy over your career. And because “Potter” has been very good to me financially, you can pick and choose some (projects) purely because it makes you happy. 

There was a stage where I thought I should be doing a certain type of film, and it was a very valuable lesson to learn that, “Oh, I shouldn’t necessarily do something because it’s the right thing to do on paper.” I was very worried at the end of “Potter,” because I didn’t know what the future was going to be or what my life was like without that thing. But if you told me then that in 10 years, I’d have made films like “Horns” and “Kill Your Darlings” and “Guns Akimbo” and “Swiss Army Man,” I’d have bitten your hand off. “Potter” was this amazing start, and then I had to step back and say, “OK, what do you want your career to be?”

Q: I spoke to your “Harry Potter” co-star Rupert Grint, who said he recently re-watched “Sorcerer’s Stone” (released in 2001, when Radcliffe was just 11 years old). Have you seen any of the movies lately? 

Radcliffe: Yeah, I was at the gym on Thanksgiving and it was just on on a loop on some channel. I came into the gym and there was a little bit of recognition at the door, but it settled down and I was like, “OK, cool, cool.” And then I get on the treadmill and look up, and it’s (expletive) me in the third film (“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”)! It’s funny. I don’t know if I can watch them, just because I don’t know if I’m ready for that opioid-level hit of nostalgia. It would be too much of a mixture of sadness and happiness and embarrassment. But I will watch them again at some point. It’s definitely not something I seek out, though.

Entertainment Weekly Interview

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When you signed on to the first season of Miracle Workers, there was always the plan to make it an anthology series. How did Simon decide on this Dark Ages setting and story line?
DANIEL RADCLIFFE: Simon is somebody who is a bit of a history nerd, and Simon’s brain looked at a lot of the potential situations in that world and just saw something he could make very, very funny. There is some stuff in the show that is really obviously heightened, that is very crazy, but it’s not that far off from the kind of stuff that was going on in medieval Europe. We have a goat on trial, and that is actually something that is completely true and something that happened with semi-regularity in medieval Europe. There really were animals put on trial for things, so it’s quite rich pickings for comedy.

The first season played with our common perceptions of the afterlife and God, and this is certainly a different take on the Middle Ages than we’re used to seeing — less Game of Thrones, more medieval sitcom. What do you most enjoy about the expectations or world this is subverting?
As you say, it complicates people’s notions of what these archetypes of certain characters would be, and Simon finds the means to subvert them. My character, for instance, is essentially a stupid prince in the way you might expect one to exist, but then we gradually watch him become more human as the series goes on. With how beautiful the sets are and how well lit it is, it has the look of Game of Thrones, but the jokes and the format of The Simpsons.

It’s so fun to see this repertory company of actors shaking things up, taking on very different roles from season 1. Did you draw straws for them? How did that all shake out?
No, not at all. My one request, or the thing I was most excited about, was that we would actually all be on set together for this series, because certain structural things in the first [season] — I never had scenes with Jon Bass, for example, because he was on earth and I was in heaven. I was very excited to actually have the cast all combined for this series this time around, and get to do stuff with them. It was me, Steve, and Geraldine’s characters that I remember Simon talking about first. The joy of working with somebody like Simon is that I don’t know if there’s anybody else that I know well enough that I could just trust and be like, “Whatever you write for the next few years, I will be happy to perform.” I am in such awe of his ability. I’ve been in the writers’ room with him and watched him be forensic and amazing about a story in a way that I have admiration for. I feel very safe in his hands. I would pretty much do whatever he writes — I have to be careful saying that.

Your character has… I guess we could call it an affinity for ducks. What is one surprising thing you learned from working with live ducks?
[Laughs] It’s unfortunate to say that the one thing I learned about them is that they smell worse than you’d expect, but there was a lot of duck s— happening when you’ve got multiple ducks on set, and it is a very distinctive smell. Karan Soni will confirm that once you’ve smelt it, it’s a smell you can identify anywhere, and as soon as they’re around you’re like, “Oh, the ducks are here.” They’re quite hard to train. Originally it was going to be geese, and they were like, “No, geese are a nightmare. That’s not going to happen.” We had three ducks that were the main ducks — they were called in British film terminology the hero ducks — and they would be brought to set. They were very good. You would set them in a certain spot and they would kind of do what they were told, and then you would get the other ducks on set and it’d be like, “Okay, let’s see what happens.”

It sounds like a bit of a clusterduck.
[Laughs] Yes, you could say that. I can’t believe I never thought of that in 10 weeks of filming!

How would you describe Chauncley, and in particular his relationship with his father? What journey can we expect this season?
At the beginning, Chauncley is intensely lonely and psychotically stupid. He’s an individual who has no empathy or self-awareness whatsoever, and the journey throughout — he meets Alexandra, Geraldine’s character, and she begins to open him up to a new world and between her and Karan, he gradually learns he does not have to follow in his tyrannical father’s footsteps. [She] helps him become more human and nice toward the end.

You and Geraldine have an easy rapport and natural chemistry. Is that story one of friendship or her making you more politically aware?
That friendship grows and maybe blossoms into something else, but Chauncley’s obviously not very good at that. He doesn’t really know what to do with these new feelings. But it is also about her just making him realize that there is life outside of the castle, and there is life outside of the line of murderous tyrants that he comes from. He does not necessarily have to follow in their footsteps. I would say that she learns stuff from me, but I don’t think she does — I think I just kind of help out at key moments, but it’s very rare that I’m speaking out as a character. Chauncley does not have a lot of speeches, bless him.

This is the first project you’ve done since Harry Potter where you got to have that experience of coming back together as a group to tell a story with deepened relationships and familiarity with one other — but now with the added element of taking on a new set of characters. If you had the luxury of doing that on Potter, which character would you have wanted to jump into?
Oh God, I guess Lupin and Sirius Black are both incredibly cool characters. Though I have to say, it’s also [because] I probably am biased a little because I love both the actors [David Thewlis and Gary Oldman] that played them. But yeah, I’d probably have to say one of those two.

You’ve been in rehearsals for Endgame on the West End, and I saw Alan Cumming’s photo with your director’s notes saying, “Actors fried.” You’ve done classic musical theater, Martin McDonagh, Peter Shaffer. Where does Beckett rank in difficulty level for you, in terms of language and approach?
Right up there at the very top. It’s tough, and I’m so glad I’m subjected to it with Alan and with [director] Richard Jones. It’s an amazing team that I’m getting to work with. It’s really tricky material, and it requires a lot of precision. Hopefully, it will come out right. But you’re definitely talking to me at a period of rehearsals where I’m like, “Oh my God.” It really is the hardest thing I’ve done.

Prince Chauncley is a bit more song-and-dance than warmonger. Do you want to do another musical, and if so do you have one in particular you want to do?
I would love to do another musical, but you have to genuinely commit for a long time. That’s not the case with plays, normally. You generally have to commit for a lot longer, and then you have to really love it. You have to absolutely know going in. You have to love doing that show, and be able to love it for a year. So I definitely want to do a musical again, but I’m not going to do it until I’m sure of that.

New trailer for Escape from Pretoria

 Check out the NEW TRAILER and see it in theaters March 6.

Escape From Pretoria is the true story of Tim Jenkin (Daniel Radcliffe) and Stephen Lee (Daniel Webber), young, white South Africans branded “terrorists”, and imprisoned in 1978 for working covert operations for Nelson Mandela’s banned ANC. Incarcerated in Pretoria Maximum Security Prison, they decide to send the apartheid regime a clear message and escape! With breath-taking ingenuity, meticulous surveillance, and wooden keys crafted for 10 steel doors, they make a bid for freedom…Beyond a thrilling will-they-won’t-they-escape, this is the story of an oppressed majority’s struggle, and two ordinary men who stood-up to be counted in the pursuit of equality for all.

First photos from the rehearsal of Endgame have been posted online by The Old Vic Theatre and Alan Cumming. The play starts Janaury 27, 2020. You can view the photos down below.

Synopsis

Nothing stirs outside. In a bare room, Hamm, old and blind, is locked in a stalemate with his servant Clov. Interrupted only by the nostalgic musings of Hamm’s ancient, dustbin-dwelling parents, this bleakly funny double act cling stubbornly to their routine of casual savagery and mutual dependence.

Endgame will be presented in a double bill with Beckett’s rarely seen short play Rough for Theatre II, in which two men discuss the fate of the other man in the room, who never speaks. This will be performed by members of the company.

Video Games Daniel Radcliffe Would Approve Of

Ever wonder which video games Daniel Radcliffe might approve of? From actual games he’s played and loved, to games that feature characters he’s played, here are some of the video games that every Daniel Radcliffe fan should check out:

Call of Duty Series

One of Daniel Radcliffe’s favorite video games is rumored to be the ever-popular Call of Duty series. With more than a dozen titles, there’s a Call of Duty game to fit whatever you’re in the mood for, whether that be WWII action, black ops missions, or the supernatural (like zombies).

When it comes to the best games in the series, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Call of Duty: World at War are among the best. You can’t go wrong with any of these options when testing the waters of the Call of Duty series.

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5–7

This LEGO-themed Harry Potter game tends to rank higher among fans than the official video game releases. Part of that is due to the LEGO games’ fun-filled adventure and sense of humor, both of which are definitely included in LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5–7. The game follows the final three books and final four films, and includes corresponding adventures and challenges. It also features an incredible soundtrack that fans will appreciate.

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5–7 is simple enough for beginners to pick up while also packing in complex and interesting gameplay. If you’re looking for more LEGO Harry Potter fun after checking this one out, you definitely must play the game’s predecessor, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4.

Wizard Casino Games

If your interests lie more in the realm of casino gaming, there are options for you, too — especially online. For example, sites like Pokerstars.bet have a huge selection of games, which are available in certain themes, styles, and types. No matter what you’re looking for online, odds are you’ll be able to find it. And if you’re looking for Harry Potter or Wizard-themed casino games, the internet has got you covered.

Online you’ll find plenty of movie-themed slots or else Harry Potter-inspired games like witchcraft slots, wizard slots, and spell-casting slots. Many of the slots also include iconic Harry Potter creatures like dragons, trolls, and goblins.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

For many Harry Potter fans, their favorite book tends to determine their favorite Harry Potter video game. But there is one Harry Potter game that tends to be favored above the rest, and that’s Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Released in 2002, the game features pretty dated graphics and is only available for select older gaming systems (like Gameboy Color). But if you have the chance, it’s certainly the Harry Potter game you should start with.

Part of the game’s excitement is its focus on the secrets of Hogwarts and the castle’s history. Besides learning spells and how to fly a broomstick, you’ll also get to explore many of the locations mentioned in the second book like the Forbidden Forest and the Chamber of Secrets.

Grand Theft Auto Series

In addition to Call of Duty, Radcliffe has also been vocal about his love of Grand Theft Auto. He grew up playing the game and then got back into it for his role in The Gamechangers, a BBC TV film about a controversy surrounding the Grand Theft Auto series. There are a lot of games in the Grand Theft Auto series, so it might be hard to choose one to start with. Generally, you can expect plenty of entertainment, a sweet ride, a lot of action, and exciting worlds to explore.

If you want to keep The Gamechangers in mind when choosing a game, go for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the 2002 game that started it all (for the movie, that is). Featuring an incredible ‘80s backdrop, style, and music, Vice City has plenty of action and entertainment to keep you busy.

Physics World

Daniel Radcliffe talks to friend and physicist Jess Wade about what it’s like as an actor to work with this kind of technology.

Jess Wade: You have been in a bunch of films that use VFX in the most progressive and creative ways. What was it like starting your acting career with the extraordinary VFX in the Harry Potter films [2001–2011]?

Daniel Radcliffe: For some of the experienced actors on Potter, it was their first time working with VFX on that kind of scale. It was different for us kids. Telling us that “the dragon is this tennis ball on the end of the stick” is a little different from giving an older actor that instruction – we’d never known anything different. And we were all kids, so using our imagination was something that we were doing a lot anyway.

JW: Has VFX changed how you act?

DR: I don’t think so – it’s always been a big part of my career. I enjoy the challenge of it. I think I’m weirdly good at following numbered cues now. I remember when they shot all the audience reactions during the Tri-Wizard Tournament [in the fourth film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)], and there would basically be a bunch of the cast and background artists on a big stand – sometimes on a green screen, depending on what the backdrop was. Assistant directors would hang big numbers around the studio and just say, for example, “1” so everyone would turn to the same eye line at the same time.

JW: The Harry Potter films ended eight years ago, and you’ve done some really exciting things with VFX since then. Has it changed a lot?

DRPotter came at a time when people were leaning heavily toward visual effects and away from “practical” make-up or special effects. Even though, of course, we had plenty of them too. In the last couple of years, we’ve reached a nice balance – where big franchises like Star Wars and Mad Max use a lot of practical stuff in creature effects and stunt work. People see the value of having practical, on-set effects, but VFX are so good. It can also make stunt work safer because you don’t have to put a human being through what you can get VFX to do.

But certainly, VFX is improving at an extraordinary rate. If you were to look at the difference between the first and last Potter films [in 2001 and 2011] – they get exponentially better over time.

JW: How does working with all that VFX compare to stage acting?

DR: I think that’s the joy of my job – I’ll do some films where there’s almost no VFX whatsoever, then I’ll do films like Swiss Army Man [2016] where it’s a crazy mix of VFX and old-school practical stuff such as camera tricks. There was one scene in that film where my character gets punched in the mouth, then swallows the hand that punches him… and punches himself in the stomach to make the hand that’s in his mouth get forced back out. I wondered “how are we going to do that?”. There was no VFX involved – it was entirely clever camera angles and a bit of make-up on the arm to make it look like it was covered in spit. It’s wonderful to be able to flit between those things – the very low-fi and the highly sophisticated ways of solving problems on film.

JW: Do you ever get involved with VFX? Do you go and see what they’re doing?

DR: The closest you get on set is when the film’s big enough to do previs [previsualization] sequences – like an animated storyboard that no-one else ever sees. For example, when there was a big quidditch sequence on Potter, they’d have that all mapped out on a visual storyboard first, and we’d try and stick to that when we filmed. But the majority of the time, the VFX is in post-production, when the actors aren’t around.

JW: But sometimes you go in to do that funny thing – what’s it called – ADR?

DR: Yeah, ADR – additional dialogue recording. At that point you might see some sequences with half-finished VFX – and that’s always cool; it’s always fun to see it in a primitive phase. For someone who is interested in how films get put together it’s kind of fascinating. In this rough cut of the film there will be shots like, if you did a driving sequence on a green screen, they’ll just show the shot on a green screen with a little caption saying “VFX needed”.

When films started using huge sets that were just entirely blue screen and VFX, I think actors were a bit whiney about it – there’s something about being on a bright blue or green screen that can drive you slightly insane. At first it was something to be remarked upon, but now it is so much part of the industry – I don’t think anyone sees it as a novel thing anymore.

JW: What’s your favourite example of VFX that you’ve worked with?

DR: That’s really hard. There are some amazing sequences in Potter – there is some really beautiful stuff. The Hall of Prophecy in [the fifth film, Harry Potter and theOrder of the Phoenix [2007] was almost entirely green screen if I remember rightly.

And then in Horns [2013], when my on-screen brother took some hallucinogenic drugs and had this really visual trip – that’s a really good mix of practical prosthetics, VFX and tricks the designers built into the sets.

There’s also the other side of VFX, which is less glamorous but even more useful. Like driving sequences – when you’re filming in a place where you can’t shut down roads, you have to do it on green screens. Then there’s patching up a prosthetic. Sometimes things look fantastic when they’ve been put on at 9 a.m., but when you’ve been wearing it for 10 or 11 hours, visual effects can be helpful for polishing up that stuff.

JW: What has been the most ridiculous thing that you had to work with?

DR: None of it feels too ridiculous at the time. The hippogriff [a magical creature that’s part eagle, part horse] in [the third film, Harry Potter and thePrisoner of Azkaban [2004] – the reality of the hippogriff and the flight of it was quite funny. If you imagine a limbless, headless bucking bronco…

JW: [descends into laughter] Like…a mechanical thing?

DR: Yeah, a mechanical bucking bronco on hydraulics. Just a grey torso with no texture, filmed on a blue screen and a green screen with a motion control camera.

JW: [can’t stop laughing] But you were all kids! I imagine when one 14-year-old starts laughing, everyone starts laughing.

DR: Sure, there would be an element of that. Thankfully, for the hippogriff sequence I was on my own at the start – so I’d got used to it. Of course, it also feels slightly strange when you mark it through for the first time if you’re acting alongside something like a tennis ball, but you get used to it.

JW: Is it weird to watch yourself after you’ve been VFX-d?

DR: It’s not weird so much as it is cool! It’s satisfying and really fascinating to see the finished product all put together, after having seen it at its most basic stages.

JW: Have you had experience with any cool VFX technologies?

DR: On Potter there was something called cyber-scanning. You’d stand in the middle of around 30 cameras and a computer would make a 3D map of you. And you know, as a kid, I had to be very still for a long time. They also had to keep doing it for every film because us kids were growing up.

JW: What did they use that for?

DR: If there’s a scene where you’re being thrown around in a crazy way – or you’re falling from a broom or something – and they didn’t want to do it with a stunt man. They use the cyber scan to recreate a digital version of you.

JW: It’s kind of cool but also intimidating. I think I’d hate to have 30 cameras pointing at me from all different angles.

DR: Yeah, for sure, it’s weird. You don’t just sit there either – you sometimes have to make expressions. There will be six or seven “first do a neutral face, then do smiling, then smiling with teeth, then surprised, then scared…” – so you have to make slightly caricatured versions of facial expressions. It’s one of the weirder parts of my job – but I enjoy all of those parts of my job!

JW: Does it feel like there’s a movement in the film industry to go back to more old-school techniques, away from VFX?

DR: Maybe a little bit. If you go to one of J J Abrams’ sets for the new Star Wars films there are lots of practical prosthetics, make-up effects and creatures – it’s really cool. It’s one of the things people love about the films that he has made.

The directors of Swiss Army Man, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, love doing stuff practically. There are sequences in the film where we’re attacked by a bear, and there is no safe or practical way of doing that really, and we didn’t have the money that The Revenant [2015] had to do a bear attack. But Dan Kwan has a VFX/animation background and knew how to film things to make the VFX easy – there are tricks.

People used to say they didn’t want movies to look like video games – but video games look incredible at this point in time, so it’s not really a valid criticism anyway anymore. I don’t think we’ll ever get to a point where we completely do away with human actors and have entirely VFX movies – though there is a place for those movies right now, and they’re awesome.

You see how people respond to films like Mad Max: Fury Road [2015], which had a lot of practical stunts, the crazy cars – that was all real. But it was coupled with a tonne of VFX – removing wires, stunt harnesses. I think the industry has got to a point where we realize the value of both and find a compromise between the two.

I cannot overstate how important that relationship is – the VFX team can really bail you out

JW: When you think about your career – of course you think about acting, but increasingly producing and directing – do you see yourself getting more involved with VFX?

DR: Depending on what level of VFX is in the film, VFX teams work very closely with the director. I think it’s really important to work with people you get on with and who understand the vision of the film. I cannot overstate how important that relationship is – the VFX team can really bail you out of stuff. On Guns Akimbo [2019] there was a lot of VFX, and we had a very chill, cool VFX co-ordinator called Tony [Kock] – and whenever there was a problem on set we’d say, “Hey Tony, can you fix that?” and he’d be like, “Yeah, that’s fine.”

JW: When you find someone like that do you not just want to ask them a tonne of questions about the technical parts of it?

DR: I do, but it’s like when I ask you about physics – I can only understand so much.

JW: Talking of physics, it’s not often we have a film star in Physics World. If you played a physicist who would you be?

DR: I will reverse the question: who would you cast me as?

JW: Paul Dirac would be great. Remember we read that great book about him [Graham Farmelo’s The Strangest Man]. But I want to know more about whether you like physics?

DR: I was always excited by space but there was way too much math in it for me to ever feel truly at home. I’m interested in it now though – absolutely. You know I always watch science shows and listen to podcasts. I guess I’d say I’m an enthusiast but I’m not informed. Maybe I got it from my teachers at school and my tutors on set. Even though I wasn’t great, they got me interested. But I think pretty much across the board, every subject I didn’t think I was good at when I was at school, I’m fascinated by now. I’m fascinated by mathematics. I don’t understand anything about mathematics, but I love hearing people talk about it. It blows my mind.

Daniel stays away from social networks

TORONTO, Canada.-Although he is a leading figure in social networks, Daniel Radcliffe stands firm in his decision to be 100 percent private. 

With 30 years in tow, the actor, who became world famous by incarnating the magician’s apprentice Harry Potter from JK Rowling’s novels for the cinema , confesses that he learned to deal with popularity and set limits.

I absolutely refuse that online world of ventilating my public life. I do not criticize anyone, nor do I put myself in the role of a judge of anyone. I’m not interested, the virtual world doesn’t call me, and whoever likes it … that’s great!

“I have learned what it is to be popular, but I give what is necessary and now. Why would I open an Instagram account talking about my trips or the ice cream I ate or the sadness that a storm causes me?” , says Radcliffe.

Therefore, smiling account, balances its celebrity and its behavior both publicly and privately.

“I have lived all my life under scrutiny and rumors, and I have learned to handle them. I think those proposals that I have had to be influencer, to use my name to have an account and get paid.

“Or, to commit to talk about a cream or a product does not go with me. My goals are to make good cinema and good theater,” he says.

That vision led him to participate in Guns Akimbo, a film recently released in Canada and which critics consider an explosive and insane treatment of violence.

Paradoxically, in it Radcliffe embodies Miles, a video game developer who involuntarily comes to star in a fight to the death that is broadcast live. 

“I am not a fan of videogames, I am not good at all for that as I could be at board games, but they do provoke me curiosity and the script of this work took me to that universe of which several are friends, such as videogames.

“In the cinema I want to go into unique, intelligent projects, and this is one of them. I am super calm, violence is not part of my life, and suddenly entering this world of death fights, in such a way realistic and with real life analogies … it’s strong! ” 

The actor of films like Victor Frankenstein and The Illusionists 2 shares that for his performance in this production he analyzed YouTube videos of UFC players to understand their expressions. 

He also read about technology, use of drones and terms for digital platforms to enter the atmosphere of his character. 

“Actually, I don’t get much into the network, beyond watching music videos or some advances in programs or movies, I’m not very expert in the network. I will always prefer human contact, talk, debate.” 

At the moment the filming of Escape from Pretoria has just concluded, which will be released next year.

Dan talks to the Wrap at TIFF

Daniel Radcliffe dropped by TheWrap’s Studio at the Toronto Film Festival to talk about playing someone who had guns surgically attached to his hands in Jason Lei Howden’s “Guns Akimbo.”

Deadline Studio at TIFF

Jason Lei Howden’s Guns Akimbo drags the gladiator fight into the modern world, with an anonymous hacker group abducting civilians and forcing them to fight to the death in a live-streamed action game. The film is, “about a normal guy that gets thrust into this world of social media, televised violence,” says Howden.

Daniel Radcliffe plays Miles, a loser who upsets the wrong people with an online comment and awakes to find he’s dual-wielding pistols that have been surgically attached to his hands. Hot on his tail is Nix (Samara Weaving)—“the LeBron of murder,” says Howden— who believes killing Miles will free her from the deadly game once and for all. With 50 bullets in each magazine, Miles has to learn not only to shoot, but also to survive.

BBC Radio 1: Innuendo Bingo

Daniel Radcliffe and Chris Stark get wet laughing at some of radio and television’s rudest innuendos, hand picked by Scott Mills.

Who Do You Think You Are?

The new series of Who Do You Think You Are? will start on Monday 22 July 2019, with the first episode following Daniel Radcliffe’s quest to uncover his family history.

The episode, which will be broadcast at 9pm on BBC One on 22 July, will see Radcliffe discovering one ancestor who became a successful Hatton Garden jeweler before meeting a tragic fate, and another who wrote moving letters from the front line of the First World War.

Prejudiced police accused the Jewish businessman of faking the raid to claim insurance cash. So, destitute and shamed, Sam took his life aged 42. An emotional Daniel says: “Everything he had worked for and that his father had worked for, has sort of been destroyed.

“You want to just reach into the past and just go ‘whatever you’re going through, you have so much to offer the people who are around you still . . . you have so much to give to them. And, they still would all have loved you’.”

Daniel doesn’t rule out that his great grandfather could have faked the robbery, though there was no proof. Tragically, the insurance company eventually paid the claim — but only after Sam’s suicide.

With a backdrop of rising British fascism under Sir Oswald Mosley, there was strong evidence detectives were anti-Semitic and reluctant to properly investigate the crime. A police report said: “Jews are so frequently responsible for the bringing down of their own business premises.”

Daniel, whose family descended from Russian and German immigrants, though he was raised an atheist, is shocked by the prejudice.

Daniel says of the report: “There’s a lot to dig into in that one sentence. It’s very jarring to see being a Jew to be taken as a piece of evidence in itself.” Shortly after the events, which took place in the year of the infamous Battle of Cable Street clash between fascists and local people in London’s East End, the family anglicised its name from Gershon to Gresham. Claims the robbery were faked and the suicide became public knowledge, which must have been tough for Sam’s wife Raie.

Daniel, who says he has always been surrounded by strong women in his life, admires his great grandmother’s “extraordinary shielding work” in protecting her daughters. The actor, whose hit Potter films include 2010’s Deathly Hallows, adds: “It’s fascinating to find that maybe the strongest of all of them was this woman I knew almost nothing about.”

One of the daughters affected was Daniel’s “Granny Pat”. He also uncovers a photo of his great, great grandfather Louis, who bore a striking resemblance.

Dan Joins ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Interactive Special

Daniel Radcliffe is entering the world of Kimmy Schmidt. The “Harry Potter” actor will star in the upcoming “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” interactive special at Netflix, set to debut in 2020.

The special will see Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) set off on her biggest adventure yet across three states. As with Netflix’s “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” movie and other interactive shows, viewers will be able to make choices on behalf of the show’s characters and take them down different story branches — and they’ll get different jokes.

In announcing the addition of Radcliffe, Netflix also teased the appearance of Kimmy’s kidnapper, the Rev. Dr. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne played by Jon Hamm, in the special. Cast returning for the interactive special include Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski and Carol Kane.

Netflix’s order for the special came after the fourth and final season of the show dropped in January. In its announcement, Netflix quoted Tina Fey, co-creator and executive producer, as saying the interactive special “will be a great way to officially complete the series.”

“He pieces together the heart-breaking story of how Ernie fought alongside his three brothers and how all of them, except for Ernie, survived.”

Guns Akimbo Update

Here’s the new synopsis and poster for the upcoming Guns Akimbo. While we wait for more news on this film. I am so looking forward to this one. Thanks to Ola for the update.

Miles is a socially awkward, easily intimidated loner who spends his days in a deadend job, pining for his beautiful ex-girlfriend Nova. His mundane existence is turned upside down when he finds himself enrolled on a dark net website that forces complete strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, so that their gladiatorial battles can be live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical, blood-lusting audience.

The contestants are chosen by a clandestine snuff film gang known as Schism, who handicap the weaker contestants to make the contest even more compelling. In Miles’s case, twin handguns are bolted onto his hands, which although great for killing, is less helpful for more day-to-day tasks. Miles is pitted against Nix, a seemingly unstoppable killing machine. Armed to the teeth, she carves a path of destruction through the city in pursuit of the cowardly Miles.

Miles’s lifetime of running from his problems initially pays off when he manages to elude Nix rather than fight. But when Nova is kidnapped, he must stop running and overcome his fear to fight for the girl he loves.

An inspired, contemporary take on the iconic action movies of the 80’s and 90’s, GUNS AKIMBO is an adrenaline soaked balls-to-the-wall action comedy in the tradition of Kick-Ass, The Terminator and Deadpool.

That’s right, it brings us great pleasure to share with you that your fave Voldermort fighting wizard is a massive fan of ‘The Bachelor’.

Daniel admitted to loving the ‘the match-making’ aspect of the show and even shared that he participates in a fantasy league for it:

“I’m actually quite into it… I don’t know If you’ve ever had the enormous pleasure of watching the show but you can get points if your girl came up – like if they’re having a conversation with the bachelor and then your girl comes up and says hi can I just steal him away for 5 minutes, you get points for that” – he said.​

“You also get points if your girl or guy like pretended that the bachelor had thought of the date instead of the producers…That got me into it and now I’m sucked in.”

Daniel Radcliffe on obsession with death, religion & TV heaven

DANIEL RADCLIFFE admits he is potty about his own mortality after landing a new gig as a low-level angel in US sitcom Miracle Workers.

The former boy wizard also shared where he lands when it comes to religion — and even teased fans about a Harry Potter afterlife.

The 29-year-old British actor admitted on death: ‘I think about it constantly anyway. I think I’m quite morbid.’

Now spending time in the ‘fun world’ of heaven on TV, he continued: ‘I don’t particularly believe in an afterlife but, if there was one and it was like this, I’d be very happy.’

On religion, Dan also shared: ‘I personally am agnostic leaning toward atheism. I don’t expect there to be a God and an afterlife.

‘I would be pleasantly surprised if there was. I’m fully aware that religion is a huge part of a lot of people’s lives.

‘Everyone can believe whatever they want, as long as it’s not hurting anyone and as long as you don’t think that gives you the right to tell someone else how they can live their life.’

Despite his views, he says he expects an afterlife for the eight Potter films — the movie franchise he starred in from the age of 11 and waved goodbye to in 2011.

Stopping short of teasing a return to the role, he finished: ‘I’m sure there will be some other version of it; I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’m gonna see in my lifetime — we’ve already got a few more.’

Bustle Interview

Daniel Radcliffe Is Happy To Be Alive Right Now

Either it’s the cappuccino he downed moments before, or Daniel Radcliffe is really excited to be here. We’re hunkered inside on a particularly frigid January morning, but the 29-year-old actor emanates warmth. There’s an anxious energy that radiates off of him like aerial caffeine, and he speaks with zealous intensity: eyes wide, limbs taut. It’s exactly this quality, I soon realize, that’s endeared him to so many people. Embodying the iconic wizard at the center of the Harry Potterseries at times made him seem larger than life, but in person he’s approachable, effusive, and bracingly unreserved. In less than an hour, we’ve blazed through a half dozen topics most people would take much longer to build to: toxic masculinity, existentialism, questions of fear and failure.

In the years since his star-making turn in Harry Potter, it’s this affability and candor that have come to define who Radcliffe is. There’s an extensive Reddit thread allotted to discussing how rigorously nice he is, and there’s an entire Upworthy post dedicated to the “9 Times Daniel Radcliffe Was The Greatest Human In Hollywood.” It’s not that it’s unprompted: Daniel Radcliffe is enduringly likable, and whether eviscerating the friend zone or skewering double standards, he has a particular knack for doling out the sort of societal hip-checks that can send Twitter into overdrive. But, as Radcliffe points out, none of this is especially impressive.

I think I get a lot of credit because people expect me to be a d*ck.

“People’s image of what a child actor is is often so f*cking terrible that just by being a baseline of decency people are like, ‘Wow, you’re an amazing person!'” he tells me, breaking into asheepish grin. “And it’s like no, I’m just fine. I’m just not actively an asshole. I think I get a lot of credit because people expect me to be a d*ck.”

He adds that he doesn’t necessarily tire of being praised for doing what he considers the bare minimum. “If the worst thing people are saying about me is that I’m nice, then I’m OK with that,” he shrugs. But there was a time when it weighed on him. Coming off of the final Potter film, Radcliffe was grossly preoccupied with public perception: he’d Google himself chronically, frustrated that critics were fixated on his charisma and not his talent. Initially, he picked roles that were purposefully bold: at 17, he famously starred in Equus, a psychosexual stage drama that required prolonged full-frontal nudity. It was a striking, conscious departure meant to distinguish his capabilities as an actor, but it was just as much about shielding his own anticipated inhibitions.

“If the point of it was to show another side of myself and to show that I could do stuff as an actor that people hadn’t seen before, then doing something safe was not going to show that. Not that you have to go full-frontal. [Your only options aren’t] safe, supporting role or just get your dick out,” Radcliffe laughs. “[But] I think it was about taking certain pieces of ammunition away from critics or the press. You could say that I was bad in Equus, but you couldn’t say that I wasn’t trying something interesting.”

Eventually, Radcliffe stepped back from the internet for his own sanity, let go of his thirst for self-affirmation, and started choosing projects not based on how validating they might be, but how personally fulfilling. “There’s always gonna be a modest chip on my shoulder, but in a way that I think is motivating rather than bitter,” Radcliffe explains. “Towards the end of Potter, I would get asked a question a lot that basically amounted to, ‘So, your life’s over. What are you gonna do now?’ There was always a part of me that wanted to prove to those people that no, you can have a good, fun, varied career after having been famous for one thing for a while. But honestly, my main goal now is a lot less about proving stuff to people and more about just being happy.”

Posing for photos in Bustle’s studio, Radcliffe does have a palpable levity. He’s diligent, yet loose: bopping along to the British rap-rock of Jamie T’s “Sheila,”dropping his shoulders, wagging his eyebrows. He chatters excitedly about his recent discovery of English pop band Superorganism, and how much he “f*cking loves” New York, where he now lives roughly half the year (the other half, of course, in London). He’s spent the last decade acting in a smorgasbord of idiosyncratic art films — an eclectic catalog reflective of his own wide-ranging tastes. He’s a documented fan of Sharknado movies, enjoys indulging in midday Scrabble games and fantasy football leagues, and recently revealed he’s an unashamed Bachelor obsessive. He gravitates toward projects because he’s passionate about them, and because, as he once told NME, he “likes things that do whatever the f*ck they want at all times.”

That includes Miracle Workers, TBS’ heady new afterlife comedy in which he stars as a skittish angel named Craig. The show’s portrayal of heaven is corporatized and chaotic: God (Steve Buscemi) is the apathetic, embittered CEO of Heaven, Inc., and Craig a lowly employee. He works in the long-neglected Department of Answered Prayers, helping mortals to find lost keys and misplaced gloves. The tone is cynical, but silly — a bit of a reprieve for Radcliffe, who, having played a stranded-in-the-Amazon adventurist in 2017’s Jungle and a crunched-for-time cocaine smuggler in 2018’s Beast of Burdenis fresh off a run of somber, high-intensity film roles.

In Miracle Workers, his character is idealistic and pure in heart, a rise-to-the-occasion paladin not unlike the young boy wonder that came to consume his childhood. After God decides he’d rather implode Earth than clean up the mess he’s made of it, Craig and newcomer Eliza (Blockers‘ Geraldine Viswanathan) make a deal with him to try and save humanity: get two mutually smitten but hopelessly awkward 20-somethings to kiss, and the timed detonator will halt the clock. What follows is a haphazard, dispiriting, and often futile venture, but according to Radcliffe, there’s beauty in the attempt.

“It’s certainly a picture of heaven that most people will be like, ‘I hope it’s not like that,'” he concedes. “There are parts of it that are slightly defeatist, but I also think there’s something really joyous in the fact that even amidst all that chaos, there are people in there trying to make a difference and trying to do something really important and help people.”

“The amount of sh*t that had to go right for us to exist if there is no God is miraculous. That is truly something that makes me feel amazed by my own existence constantly.”

As in similarly-minded series like The Good Place and Russian Doll, Miracle Workersraises questions about free will, fate, and purpose without offering concrete answers, but Radcliffe is more assertive in his views. “To me there’s never been anything depressing about [not believing in God] as much as there’s been something liberating. There’s no assigned meaning to life, so you can make it mean what you want it to be for you,” he explains. For him, an absence of faith doesn’t preclude an optimistic outlook. “The amount of sh*t that had to go right for us to exist if there is no God is miraculous. That is truly something that makes me feel amazed by my own existence constantly.”

For Radcliffe, though, the show’s appeal wasn’t so much about probing his place in the world as it was about conveying a deep part of himself he wouldn’t have otherwise been able to express — it’s one of two projects, he says, that reflect his “personal life philosophy.” The first is his so-called “farting corpse” movie Swiss Army Man, a frank-humored 2016 indie that, much as actors do in their art, finds comfort in the power of imagination. The other is this series, an equally strange but more accessible story about believing in good — even in the smallest of increments — amid a world that’s all but abandoned any hope.

“Craig’s miracles are pathetic when you first meet him … [but] the fact that he can [make someone’s] day just slightly better for a moment is more than enough for him, and I think that’s my way of seeing the world,” Radcliffe says. “The world has always been screwed up and will continue to always be screwed up. I have so much admiration for people who wake up in the morning and go like, ‘My mission today is that I’m going to help stop climate change’ or ‘I’m gonna try and solve income inequality.’ For me I just go, ‘I don’t know man. I think the boat might have sailed on that.’ The way I feel most comfortable making a difference is making the lives of the people you are directly in contact with a little bit better every day, just by virtue of being nice or fun or whatever it is.”

It’s a modest sentiment befitting of Radcliffe, who’s spent his career bucking the notion that fame somehow justifies impudence. Hollywood is an insular, often outmoded industry rife with deep-festering problems, but Radcliffe recognizes he might not be the right person to solve them. Instead, he, like Craig, is content to do his part — even if all that means is being kind.

“We feel like we’re in a time of huge turmoil, and we are, and lots of things are changing and it’s very uncomfortable,” Radcliffe says. “But I think the idea that we’re in an especially bad time to be alive right now is just not true. I would still rather be alive at this moment than at literally any other point in history.”

Apparently, it wasn’t the cappuccino after all.

Collider’s Interview with Dan

Daniel Radcliffe is set to return to TV in TBS’ new comedy series, Miracle Workers. Based on Simon Rich’s book, “What in God’s Name”, this seven-episode limited series turns the perception of heaven on its head while also making the case that humans are worth saving. In the Heaven-sent send-up from the mind behind Man Seeking Woman, Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers. Steve Buscemi plays Craig’s boss, God, who has pretty much checked out to focus on petty hobbies. To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly impossible prayer: help two humans, Laura and Sam (played by Sasha Compere and Jon Bass), fall in love.

Also starring Karan Soni (Deadpool), Miracle Workers will feature guest stars Tituss BurgessMargaret ChoAngela KinseyTim MeadowsJohn ReynoldsLolly Adefope and Chris Parnell appearing throughout the season. Look for it on TBS starting February 12th!

During a visit to the Atlanta-area set with a small group of journalists, I had a chance to chat with Radcliffe about Miracle Workers, what drew him to the project, and his parts to play both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Filming took place in a disused wing of a massive fiber optics factory which acted as a perfect setting for Rich’s particular version of Heaven Inc. We caught up with Radcliffe before he filmed his character Craig’s scenes in the company’s Department of Answered Prayers, where he spends most of his afterlife.

If you’d like a taste of the new series, be sure to watch the official trailer, followed by my set visit interview with Radcliffe:

Miracle Workers is created by Man Seeking Woman creator Simon Rich. It is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer of Michaels’ Broadway Video, along with Rich, Radcliffe and Buscemi. Broadway Video produces the series in association with Turner’s Studio T.

We had so much fun finding all the random stuff from decades and decades of computer and communications technology on set…

Daniel Radcliffe: I do think that, there’s something lovely about this show. From the moment I sort of started working on it, you could just tell that Simon’s world and the world that he’s built up has kind of inspired everybody, in all the different departments. It’s so rare to get a job where you have to production design Heaven, or find a new take on Heaven, or something like that. And I just think that, that’s the kind of project that … just gives everyone permission to kind of go kind of crazy and just their imagination.

And also just the level of detail. I don’t know if you’ve had the chance to see the books and stuff, in the department of prayers, and all the prayers that are on the wall are all very specific, real prayers with pictures of crew members. It’s a lovely, when you step on to the sets and see that level of detail, I always think that’s a really cool, exciting thing.

So what specifically was it about this project that brought you on board?

Radcliffe: I mean, I think its really like, it was a chance to work with Simon and work with him over hopefully a number of years. And I just think he just has the most unbelievably creative mind and I’m such a fan of all his sort of short stories and his work. I think one of the intimidating things for me about doing TV is that you are often signing on to something having just read a pilot. And that’s crazy to me. And not knowing where that goes is something that would worry me. But there’s something about Simon that I have absolutely no doubt that he would be able to come up with amazing ideas for how [and] where to go with this show. Obviously [the] next series will not be in Heaven, it will be in somewhere totally different.

Hearing how excited Simon was at the prospect of being able to write a show that … there are things that I never considered about writing for TV, but you know, you can’t write an ending, you have to write continuously-open ended stuff. How frustrating that must be, as a writer, so I think, when I hear the excitement in his voice, at the amount of freedom TBS was giving him to just create a world, tell the whole story… So essentially it’s like a long movie, and then you chuck it out and go on to something completely different for the next season.

And, for me as well, that freed me of any of the worry of, “Oh, I’m going to be playing the same character again for a long time, because I’m gonna get to play a different character every year.”

So what was this character? What was intriguing for you?

Radcliffe: Well you know, this first series is obviously based off of Simon’s book, so the character of Craig is pretty much how he is in the book. I think he’s probably become slightly more neurotic and nervous, as the writer started writing for my voice.

In some ways, there are definitely parallels between myself and this character that I see, but I also think the character of Craig kind of functions as an avatar for Simon, himself, in the story. Obviously it’s his creation and his character, but I think there’s definitely a lot of both of us in it.

And also this world. I know Simon has written for Pixar, and The Simpsons, and lots of animated stuff, but I definitely picture this world somehow as–even though I’ve been filming for four weeks–as still being an animated Pixar movie, it just has that, in the same way that Inside Out did. As well as it being a great story, with great characters, there’s an intricacy and a playfulness to the world, where you just want to spend time in it, and see how more of it works. And, to me, that’s a very exciting thing, as an audience member, where you just want to get back to being in that space with all these characters.

This version of Heaven has a corporate name. Can you talk a little bit about the hierarchy and how your character fits into that hierarchy?

Radcliffe: Yes. Very, very lowly. So I think, contrary to what we, as human beings on Earth, would hope for, the answering of our prayers is very low priority in this version of Heaven. Craig, my character, takes an incredible amount of joy and pride in his job, but he’s like a one-man army, he’s literally a one-man band receiving millions of prayers a day; answering like three or four, that’s like a good day.

And so he is somebody who is sort of quite isolated. Because nobody else is really in his department, and he’s developed a certain way of doing things, he’s also very cautious. He’s somebody who, for fear of failing, will not try. He would rather take the path of, “Well, I won’t even try that, because that’s gonna go terribly, badly wrong. So I’ll just stick to my safe prayers that I know that I can get done.”

Then when Eliza comes into the story, in the beginning, she kind of comes in with an attitude of, “Wait, what the hell are you doing? You have an opportunity to make a massive difference to people’s lives, and you’re just sort of doing these tiny trivial prayers.” But then she finds out, in her zeal to try and make a massive difference in the world, that actually it’s very hard to do that without there being some sort of horrible butterfly effect that launches something terrible else halfway around the world.

That’s one of the things in this story that I find, not funniest, because its not funny, but it also is. These guys are working in Heaven. And so, when something goes wrong, it is truly catastrophic on Earth. But they have also been there for 10,000 years, and they’ve seen every variant of an earthquake or every variant of a volcano, or something going wrong. So there’s a certain de-sensitivity, or the i[detachment] of doctors, with the sort of gallows humor of, “Well, okay then, there goes another one. Moving on.”

Simon’s humor, hopefully, combines some very, very light fun stuff with some very, very dark. We are trying to save the world, so at a certain point, the ends justify the means, to a certain extent, for our characters in this series. We do some bad things to people who are getting in our way in order to try and save the world.

You’ve only got seven episodes, so I’m curious about the scope. Do we get to see Craig sort of like, super enthusiastic and then kind of waning over time, or is the story kind of just focused on one particular point in time?

Radcliffe: Yeah, no, it’s focused on one particular, sort of, I guess just over two week time period. But you certainly see everyone kind of run the gamut in that thing.

Simon had a great analogy for the series actually. What he said was it’s kind of like a sports movie in that a lot of the drama from it comes from, not how’s it going to end, but actually how are they going to assemble the team. So it starts off with just me, and I’m useless on my own, and Eliza, and she’s kind of too enthusiastic for her own good on her own. And then we meet and sort of balance each other out. And then it’s about us learning that we’re not enough, so we maybe have to go with some characters who we don’t won’t to, or we find intimidating, and try and bring them into the team. It’s sort of about the ups and downs of the relationships along the way.

And also my favorite description that Simon has is half the movie is like this crazy high-stakes almost action movie … it’s not an action movie, but it’s that sort of feel of incredibly fast tempo and high stakes craziness, all the time. And then the other half is just like this romcom movie about these two kids trying to go on a date. And hopefully the flipping back and forth between these two, and seeing these people on Earth completely unaware of the weight that their story is carrying, and the fact that there are literally angels watching them, depending on their every move … hopefully, a lot of comedy will come from that as well.

How did Craig get this gig?

Radcliffe: That’s a great question.

Is that addressed or not really important?

Radcliffe: I don’t think it’s addressed. Everyone is randomly assigned roles when they get in to Heaven, and it’s random weather you get into Heaven, in our story, as well. There’s one moment when Eliza is trying to rally the troops, and she’s like, “Come on guys, you know, we’re all in Heaven, that means we’re the best humanity has to offer.” And somebody else is like, “No, no, no, that’s not how it works. It’s random.” I think that’s definitely one of the things that Simon has enjoyed, is just like messing with what expectations of Heaven would be, and generally, I think, being pretty disillusioning to people.

But, in terms of how Craig got his job, I assume he was randomly assigned and has just sort of taken to it and loved it, and made it his own.

These angels don’t have wings?

Radcliffe: No, no. No wings, no halos.

You mentioned that this was the earliest that you’d ever been involved in a project. So how did you inform the character of Craig?

Radcliffe: I don’t know. I suppose in a way that I’m not trying to give you no answer, but I think that’s probably more of a question for Simon. Simon and I definitely had conversation about how I saw Craig, particularly in moments at the end of the series. It’s normally like I’d say, “I think maybe Craig needs to have something there to sort of tie that together.” And then Simon goes off and writes an amazing scene. So it’s generally that’s the input I had, was just going, “Maybe something that…” And then Simon did something amazing, and it was exactly what it needed.

I got to be involved in the casting process as well, which was super weird, to be on the other side of that. It was cool, and it made me have so much respect for actors in a way that I maybe didn’t before, frankly. But I don’t know, like I do obviously have respect for actors but, watching loads and loads and loads of tapes of people that had sent tapes in, for various roles. And so you were seeing the same scene again and again and again. And then suddenly you’ll see somebody and like, “Oh, wow, you just said the exact same thing as everyone one else, and suddenly that was completely different and amazing.”

So it was cool being involved in that part of the process. And yeah, I think, as I said, I think Simon and I are quite similar people. I’m like a dumb version of Simon. But I do think, talking about the character, that we were often finding a lot of common ground, particularly around stuff … the most I ever ever feel like myself and comfortable is on set working, and I think that’s something that Craig has as well. When he meets Eliza, in the beginning, he’s thrilled to be meeting her at work, because that’s kind of the place where he knows, and he can show off and be his version of cool.

And then outside, anywhere removed from that, in a slightly social situation or in a situation anywhere else around the sort of cavern, or the campus of Heaven Inc, he’s pretty useless. I think Simon and I have experienced versions of that same sort of feeling. So you know, conversations like that.

What do you think that people will respond to specifically with Miracle Workers?

Radcliffe: Oh, I don’t know. You just hope that it finds an audience and that people like it. The thing that I find lovely about it is that, first of all, the world that it is in I genuinely think is so imaginative and creative and wonderful and fun. And I think that is really powerful, in terms of people wanting to watch the show.

I’m not saying this is like Harry Potter, but I think it’s the reason that Harry Potter was very successful as well, was that world, and you wanted to spend time in there. So, no matter what iteration of it it is, you sort of just want to go back and see more of it. I think this has that same feeling.

I think it’s really, as I said earlier, there’s some darker humor in it, but generally speaking, I think it’s incredibly kind and heart-warming and happy comedy. And I think it’s very hard to do comedy that is just not in any way mean or cynical. There’s a huge amount of warmth for just humanity, and the awkwardness of being human. And I think there’s a huge amount of love in the series. And I know that sounds like just a cheesy, corny thing to say, but sometimes you watch some comedies, and you’re like, “Ah, man. I feel like this is really funny.” But often you’re like, “I feel like writers kind of hate the characters.” Whereas, I feel like, with this, there’s an incredible amount of … even our depiction of God is kind of crazy. And Steve [Buscemi] is sort of a child in it. But even in that character and even in that depiction of him, there’s still a huge amount of love for that character, and hopefully that sort of comes across. Ultimately, what I’m saying is I think it’ll be a very happy show to watch. And so I think people want that I think.

How did this marry with your own upbringing of what Heaven was, and your concept? Because we’re either affected by what our parents feel or what religion institutions teach us, or cinematically, there are versions of Heaven.

Radcliffe: Yeah, I mean, that’s the thing. I feel like most of my versions of Heaven were from like, cartoons and Terry Pratchett books. My mum and dad were, I think they definitely both believe in God, I think.

But it’s not something that we, as a family, it was never something that was passed on to me, in terms of, “This is what Heaven is and this is where you’re going to go and not go.” I’ve never been particularly religious, but I’ve always been fascinated by religion and also found it amazing. There’s reason religion has such an important place in all of our lives, and is reflective of where we, as a species, have been at every point in our existence. And so there’s something to it, and there’s something, I particularly think, from a storytelling point of view.

I did a movie called Horns, which is a similarly weird. Like, I’m not religious, but it’s a weirdly very religious movie. And it’s quite straight-on on its take on demons and angels and redemption and that kind of stuff. And so I think, I don’t know, maybe it’s just pure exploitation, but I feel like Heaven and religious symbolism, and stuff like that, is incredibly fertile ground for storytelling. Because it is why things like Good Omens, the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman book that I was thinking of earlier, one of the reasons that’s so good is that it just plays with things we sort of already know about Heaven and reinvents them in ways that are pleasing and fun. And I actually think this world is less religious than the Heaven in Simon’s book. The Heaven in Simon’s book is kind of a straight-up Christian Heaven. I think Jesus is mentioned directly.

This is much more sort of secular. Like it is like a corporation, it’s definitely a non-denominational kind of just omnipresent organization, I don’t know. The closest we ever get to some direct religious parody, or something like that, there’s one episode where God gets a prophet, and that’s great. That’s one of my favorite things, but I don’t want to say too much about it.

Do we know how Craig gets to Heaven? Do we know what happened to him on Earth?

Radcliffe: You do find out about his past life, yeah. Well Craig’s life on Earth took place at a time where he was actually probably towards the top end of human life expectancy when he died. It’s one of my favorite jokes in the series actually is you see all of our past lives, all the three main angels, what we did on Earth. But I’m not gonna say anything more about that, because it’s such a great joke. Those particular jokes remind me of the jokes in movies like Airplane, where you just are like, “Whoa, how much time was put into that four-second joke?” Because they’re all very, very short, but we all had sets made specifically for that. It’s one of my favorite moments, but I won’t say any more about that.

Wall Street Journal Interview

As Harry Potter, actor Daniel Radcliffe was the boy wizard who lived in the cupboard under the stairs. Now, he’s an angel working in the basement of heaven.

In his new show, the TBS comedy “Miracle Workers,” Mr. Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-ranking angel at Heaven Inc., who diligently answers humanity’s prayers. He and other angels must try to save Earth after their capricious boss, God (Steve Buscemi), decides he wants to blow it all up and start a new venture.

There’s a lot of collateral damage as their mission unfolds—a single action in heaven can trigger a natural disaster or wave of accidental deaths on Earth. The show pokes fun at the randomness of earthly encounters and human culture. “It manages to be both nihilistic and very positive at the same time,” Mr. Radcliffe says. “That’s something akin to my outlook, which is that yes, the world is crazy but we’re so lucky to be alive.”

“Miracle Workers” is his first major comedy on screen; he’s also an executive producer of the series, which debuts Feb. 12. It’s intended to be an anthology, like the dramas “True Detective” or “American Horror Story,” with each season (if the show succeeds) taking on new story lines, settings and characters, while keeping many of the same actors.

The prospect of changing characters is a big part of the appeal for Mr. Radcliffe, who had long wanted to do an American television series but was reluctant to play the same part over and over again. “Having played one character for a long time when I played Harry, this felt like an amazing opportunity to get into TV, but also get to do something new every year,” he says.

As Harry Potter, he played in eight films for a decade, from the age of 11 to 21. Getting cast as the orphan wizard brought Mr. Radcliffe, now 29, instant, international fame. Yet being on the set for 11 months of the year “isolated me from the outer effects of what fame is,” he says. “I also think that if you can become famous when you’re young, and do it with good people around you, you know, you can throw a kid into anything and they’re very adaptable.” He thinks a film set is the place where actors get treated normally, since everyone else working on the set is used to being around actors: “There’s nothing special about it.”

He also worked out, early on, what success means to him. “I’ve always been very lucky, very young, to be financially secure and to work on really big movies,” he says. “I know that is amazing, but it’s not the be all, end all of what a successful life as an actor looks like to me. It’s about longevity and versatility and having fun.”

Since the “Harry Potter” franchise concluded in 2011, he has worked in a range of films and starred in theater in New York and London, including Broadway’s “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” and “The Lifespan of a Fact,” where he tried to hone his comedic delivery every night. In “Lifespan,” which closed Jan. 13, he played an obsessive fact checker at a magazine, opposite Cherry Jones and Bobby Cannavale.

“There were some nights when it felt like we were doing a sitcom with a live audience,” he says. “I love doing theater in London, but New York audiences are so vocal, man!”

With theater, the jokes don’t always land with live audiences, and in a play full of them, the risk is high. “When you lay yourself out for a joke and you get nothing, you feel very cheap,” he says, grimacing at the thought of it. “I have a very jarring response whenever that happens,” he says as he throws his arms up in the air and shields himself. “It’s a thing you learn early on, not to chase jokes. That’s part of the ebb and flow of doing a show every night. But as an actor, you get attached to certain laughs,” he says.

Although “Miracle Workers” is his biggest foray into on-screen comedy, he has made guest appearances on “The Simpsons,” hosted “Saturday Night Live” and had a dog-walking cameo in “Trainwreck.” (“The amount of people that mention that to me is amazing still,” he says of the cameo, marveling at the half-life of a half-day’s work.)

As a viewer, he has long devoured sitcoms, he says. He grew up on Alan Partridge and “The Day Today,” “The Office” (the British one), and “Fawlty Towers.” As a teenager, he’d rush home every day to catch “The Simpsons” on BBC Two. “‘The Simpsons’ is my baseline for comedy. Me getting to do a voice was a real ‘I made it’ moment,” he says.

“Miracle Workers” mines dark territory, with both the angels and humans dealing with their own demons. Mr. Radcliffe sees comedy as a coping mechanism for sadness and thinks that characters like David Brent in the British “Office” (played by Ricky Gervais) and Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan) are “brilliantly tragic creations” and “all about desperation to be liked.”

In his spare time, Mr. Radcliffe doesn’t find it relaxing to watch movies; it’s stressful to see Oscar-nominated pictures or performances, he says, though he did see “Vice” and loved it. “I get a bit, ‘I wish I were in that,’ or ‘I’m not working hard.’ It’s a funny feeling,” he says.

His eyes light up, though, when discussing favorite documentaries, and he confesses to consuming a lot of “semi-trashy TV.” “I’m unashamedly into ‘The Bachelor.’ ‘Top Chef,’ I’m obsessed with,” he says.

He’s also a big sports fan. On Super Bowl Sunday, he’ll be supporting the Rams. “The Patriots now are like Manchester United in the ’90s in England, where they’ve just been too good for too long, and we all have to start rooting for their demise,” he says.

As for his own faith, Mr. Radcliffe says that he doesn’t expect there to be an afterlife, or a God. “I feel like people think that being agnostic is depressing and bleak, and I’ve never found it to be that way,” he says. “It always seems to me that there being nothing after just makes this incredibly special…It does seem miraculous.”

Daniel Radcliffe Goes to Heaven in “Miracle Workers”

Daniel Radcliffe adds to his phenomenal acting career with a role in the offbeat comedy TV series Miracle Workers. His foray into episodic TV bowed at Sundance before its premiere on TBS next month and is the latest twist in the professional path of former – and forever – Harry Potter who incredibly will be turning 30 in July. 

The series is based on Simon Rich’s book What in God’s Name and is set in the offices of Heaven Inc. where Steve Buscemi plays God and Radcliffe is Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers. His job is made harder by the fact that God has pretty much checked out and is ready to move on to his next project. In fact, the Boss is so disappointed in humans that he has decided to destroy Earth. To prevent this, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan), must answer a seemingly unanswerable prayer: help two humans fall in love. Miracle Workers is created by Simon Rich and executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer and its presence at Sundance is further evidence of the growing presence of episodic fiction at the festival.

HFPA journalists met Radcliffe in Park City. He’s not new to Sundance: he was here three years ago with the much talked about film Swiss Army Knife.

Miracle Workers sounds like a fascinating concept, given the current political and social flux, and all these religious controversies, isn’t it?

Well, for a show set in heaven, it’s a comedy and it’s not that much about religion. The show is much more secular than Rich’s book was. But yes, I think one reason that I love the show is that it has a very dark comedy in it – people die because we are in heaven – so those are the things we are dealing with. But there’s also a real warmth and kindness in this comedy, it’s not mean-spirited and I think it has a huge amount of love and optimism for human beings, as crazy as the world is right now.

And redemption, trying to do good things too?

I think one of the overarching things about the series is God rediscovering his love of Earth and what he created. At the beginning of the season, he is kind of disillusioned by it and by how badly it’s all going, and his journey is to learn what actually you have created, although it is mad and messy, is also beautiful and sort of genius.

What do you think about the fact that you come to Sundance not with a film but with a TV series?

It’s nice to just come here and I can just enjoy this, and it is lovely doing press for something that you like. And I am so happy to see all the cast again and show what you did, whether it’s film or TV.

In terms of God being center stage right now, do you think God really loves people?

I don’t believe in God (laughter), so I have a hard time wondering if he is feeling that way. But I almost feel that we are at a dark place in history at the moment, and I think this show has a very realistic but also optimistic message about us as a species. That sounds very grand and it is just a seven-part comedy, but it does have a lovely message by the end.

Why did you want to do it? 

I was just so blown away by the script. And I think the world that Simon (Rich) has built in Heaven, in its very bureaucratic, funny convoluted kind of version of Heaven, is a world that I’d want to spend time in and see how it all works. I read the book and I had a meeting with Simon, and I told him if you ever make anything out of this, TV, film, radio, theater, I don’t care, I just want to be a part of it in any way possible.

Another theme in the show: do we really have free will about love? Is it a coincidence, are people supposed to be together? What do you think?

I don’t think there’s one person for everybody. I think this show says that not everything happens for a reason. Personally, I think love is something that you have to work hard for; at the same time loving another human being is the most joyous thing that you can devote yourself too. And the incredible thing about the show is that these two people that you so want to get together, they are so blissfully unaware that the entirety of Heaven is working hard to get them together!

Steve Buscemi is playing God. If you had the chance to sit down and have a conversation with God, in whose form would you want it to be?

I would go with Michael Gambon, who obviously played Dumbledore in Potter: Michael is one of those guys who looks like one might imagine God but also is just really silly and fun. So, if I get to heaven and Michael Gambon is there as God, I will be pretty happy.

Will there be a second season?

I hope so. We don’t know. It has to come out and we see if people like it but hopefully, yes. The second season will be an anthology series, so the idea would be to take as much of the same cast as we could, and just change the setting, change the roles, change the story, just reset it in a totally different world, I don’t think in heaven. 

What’s next for you? Are you really going to be escaping from prison in South Africa?

 [laughs] I will be in a couple of weeks: I will be starting Escape from Pretoria. We are filming in Australia actually – unfortunately we couldn’t film in South Africa – in Adelaide, which is doubling for Pretoria, and I am practicing my South African accent a lot. I very much look forward to it.

Why Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter Cameo Was Cut From Lego Movie 2

Don’t expecto Daniel Radcliffe to show up in “The Lego Movie 2.”

The follow-up to the wildly successful “Lego Movie” is packed full of typically riddikulus cameos. Among director Mike Mitchell’s favorite sequences are when Chris Pratt’s perpetually upbeat Emmet Brickowski walks through a “Mad Max”-like hellscape and when Tiffany Haddish’s Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi convincingly sings about how “not evil” she is.

The filmmakers were able to “cram in” pretty much every wild idea for a cameo they had, Mitchell said, but there was one scene that they unfortunately had to obliviate:  

“Gary Potter was the only one.”

According to Mitchell, “Lego Movie 2” originally involved a joke “about an unlicensed character, Gary Potter, that I don’t think made it into the film, that made everyone laugh.”

“It was Harry Potter’s cousin,” he explained. “It was an unlicensed character. He didn’t make it in.”

Wait, Gary Potter? “Lego Movie 2” doesn’t mess around with its cameos; actual “Justice League” actors Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa voice their respective characters in the movie. Would Gary Potter have been played by the Boy Who Lived himself, (gasp!), Daniel Radcliffe?

“Oh yeah, we were definitely going to go out to Daniel. And he was game, but unfortunately his character got cut,” Mitchell said, “I don’t remember

why it happened. I think it was because we didn’t want to upset any ‘Harry Potter’ fans. They have such a following, so we deci
