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.
