Harry Potter consumes everything

The text below has been translated if anything seems wrong that’s why. So just a heed of warning when you read it. It’s basically the same as the video.

When you showed up at Bellevue, there was a crowd. Is not that excessive demand?
Not at all. I worry more that I can not account for all who want autographs. In Zurich there were very many, and I have some done, but not all. That stresses me! Maybe it has to do with the fact that as a child I already had to give autographs and was sometimes booed by those who I was. As a child did wrong the. One wants to disappoint anyone.

They act very generous. Have your parents so well behaved?
Sure, I was told that I should be polite, reach out to greet the hand first, things like that. My father is from Northern Ireland, my mother from Essex, they have worked their way, and I grew up in London in a middle class family.

And today all selfies want with you. Is not that strange?
Strangely not, it is the fastest way to do the whole thing. But I have in my career actually can observe the decline of the autograph. Previously wanted the all, today it is no longer anything. Documenting an experience has become more important than the experience itself. Everything I’ve seen from the stage in the cinema Corso, were mobile.

And yet there have children Stars today any easier?
I guess so. We have seen grow up some child actors who later got good roles. And today there are many more opportunities to get to know the actors take the figure. In talk shows, people get to see myself, not Harry Potter. I’ve probably got the same number of jobs thanks interviews as thanks roles.

They were eleven years old when you played in the first “Harry Potter” film. Was also no demand?
Not at all. It was even helpful. One makes a teenager some experience and has the role even a valve to express it. That’s the nice thing about acting: You have a place to dump all the garbage that you have in mind. This useful arises.

Did you have much time to make teenagers experience?
When I was 13 years old, I had at least 13 years of experience. But clearly, I had nothing had anything remotely to do with acting technique. I just learned by heart lines. But from 14 I thought: The things that happen in my life, I can do for the movies. Just because I was so young on a set, I did not even miss all the other aspects of teenage life.

but you put already in a giant cinema machine, no?
I still remember how Chris Columbus, director of the first two “Potter” films, once came into my trailer. I had assumed he turn now ten years all films. But he told me that he will not come back, he had a family that he wanted to see. So to make a “Harry Potter” film, is a company that consumes everything. Check out Alfonso Cuarón on, the director of the third film. He came as a young, good-looking Mexican. When he left, he was gray.

For many “Harry Potter” was primarily an intense reading experience. Serves you still that you can not stop to read a book?
It does not happen every time, but if it happens, it is the greatest. The last time I experienced it with “The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle” by Haruki Murakami. I was obsessed.

Come for one at that, in addition to screenplays to read novels?

For sure. I was one of these children, the joy received thanks “Harry Potter” in reading. Currently I read very, very slow “100 Years of Solitude” by Gabriel García Márquez. So fantastic the novel is, as often as I am interrupted because of a press tour. Otherwise much Kurt Vonnegut, the stories and “Cat’s Cradle”. “The Master and Margarita” by Mikhail Bulgakov is my favorite book. Not many know it, but it changes the life.

Can you explain the outrage over the black Hermione in the new “Harry Potter” -Theaterstück?
It is ridiculous. As with “Ghostbusters”, always are people in turmoil. And still you wonder: What is black Hermione to do with your life? As J. K. Rowling announced that Dumbledore was gay, people were also so angry. I think people should relax times.

You have on stage played the young fanatics in the play “Equus”. What will one day be more important to you, “Harry Potter” or “Equus”?

Automatic Answer: Thanks to “Harry Potter” I became a star, and so I could also “Equus” make. But many directors have said to “Equus”: “Perhaps he really has the talent for other things.” Well, “Harry Potter” I owe the career that I have. And “Equus” the career that I want to have.
