The Demelza House Fundraiser is something we do several times a year. We are doing a special feature in ACED Magazine for those that donate to Demelza House within the time frame listed for this project, this is a special fundraiser, separate from the annual birthday fundraiser. There will be a prize drawing for those that submit entries for this fan project. The drawing will take place on Dan's birthday, in a live chat, on July 23rd. (Prizes to be announced at a later date).

This year we're adding a special twist. We would like everyone who donates to send us their own short birthday greeting for Dan, their photo (if they wish) and their thoughts about what Demelza House means to them and why they choose to donate. All (yes, ALL) of these contributions will be included in the print edition of ACED Magazine that will be sent to Dan for his 16th birthday.

Full details of how to donate to Demelza House and what you need to send can be found on our ACED Fan Projects Page.

Wizard Chase in London

Posted by jenna on 27/05/05

Today the Independent published a small article about the “politics” behind shooting certain scenes for the next Harry Potter installment.

“A highlight of the superhero's next film outing will (hopefully) see Potter, played by Daniel Radcliffe leading a high-speed broomstick chase, James Bond-style, down the Thames.

Unfortunately, the film's director, David Yates, who is currently masterminding pre-production, says that several local councils are refusing to play ball.

“So far, we have spent a lot of time on boats on the Thames,” he tells me.

“I want to do a great big wizard chase past the London landmarks and it is going to be very exciting, but it has not been easy to set up.

ACED Print Project #1

Posted by jenna on 26/05/05

I know, I know, where have all the updates gone… As soon as the media server and I have it out I will be uploading a few things… HE is being difficult. (Probably sulking since I took ACED and put it up on a new separate server this weekend).

GENERAL UPDATE:

ACED Magazine has had many changes over the last few weeks, and even more on the way. We are starting many promotions for upcoming movies, bands, album releases, and more. You can also sign up for a newsletter on the main ACED Magazine online site to get notified about prize promotions, to include CDs, posters, t-shirts, a Sony PSP, Hot Topic gift certificates, and more. We are working with Record Labels, PR, and various studios to bring you movie reviews, album reviews, exclusive feature articles, celebrity interviews, etc. – all online. Updates will be made at least once a week.

I have many e-mails I am sorting through right now, so if you have sent me e-mail about ACED I WILL get to you, I promise. (I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel). If you are interested in writing or editing for ACED Magazine you can E-Mail Me and I will send you more information and guidelines.

FAN PROJECT:

Now is the time to quickly get through our fan projects for Dan's printed version of ACED for his 16th birthday. For those of you who did not have the chance to participate in the video project, or even if you did, you can participate in the Fan Projects for ACED Magazine as an alternative.

The first project is the Poetry and Short Story Section. If you would like to submit your writing masterpiece for inclusion in the printed edition of ACED, that will be sent directly to Dan for his birthday, please send your submissions to ELENA. She will be heading up this project.

Poetry and stories do NOT have to be about Dan, in fact, I'd encourage you to write on different subjects. The most creative and original submissions will be chosen for the printed edition.

*** The Poetry and Short Story project starts today and ends Tuesday, 31 May 2005 at midnight EST. A link to the ACED Fan Projects for Dan's 16th B-day will be added at the top of the page later today for your convenience.

If you know of any HBP parties in your area you can add it to the database, see what other parties are in your area, and even chat with other fans that may be in your area and will be attending the party. Not only does this site list HBP parties all over the world, it also has sections to give you, the fan, ideas on how to conduct your own parties, including decorations, recipes, costume suggestions, etc. We know you'll find it useful in the coming months, so go check it out.

PotterParties.com is a collaborative effort on the part of all of the top HP fan sites, HPANA, Veritaserum, DanRadcliffe.co.uk, DanRadcliffe.com, Mugglenet, HP Fan Zone, and especially The Leaky Cauldron who did a lot of work to put this together for everyone.

What Dan has to say – the Weekly Reader issue

Posted by jenna on 16/05/05

After learning what a frenzy the Weekly Reader caused over this past weekend Dan sent a response to straighten things out. As always we thank Dan for clearing this up and taking the time to send this to us. He had this to say about it:

“I usually do not make any comment on postings on websites however, I have been made aware that a simple answer I gave in an interview to Weekly Reader re my relationship with Rupert has sent people into a maelstrom of speculation. It has shocked me that the words “I don't spend much time with Rupert” has been interpreted in so many grossly inaccurate ways.

FACT: I like Rupert, I get on with Rupert, we are friends and when we are on set together we have a good laugh.

We don't spend much time together off set – because there isn't any! Those of you who are familiar with GoF will know that there are many scenes in which Ron doesn't appear Also, I am still at school and when I am not on set filming I am in tutoring and when Rupert is not needed for filming he is not in the studio. But, we are good friends and any suggestion otherwise is wrong”.

Weekly Reader Interview

Posted by jenna on 14/05/05

Weekly Reader has published some new pictures of Goblet of Fire cast members as well as interviews with cast members, and Dan. You can see Dan's Q&A below.

How would you describe Harry these days?
He's grown up quite a bit. He's becoming slightly more aggressive. In this story [Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire], everything is being taken away, and it's out of his hands. Harry struggles to get a grip on the situation.

How has being Harry Potter changed your life?

I do get recognized in public. This one guy saw me near a [subway] station and burst out, “Hey, everyone! Look!” It would have been OK with me if he hadn't yelled. The other thing that has changed is that I'm not in school as I'd normally be. [He attends school on the set.]

Do you still enjoy portraying Harry Potter?
Yes, it gets easier, but each film presents new challenges.

How do you get along with other cast members?
Me and Emma [Watson] are like brother and sister. We don't have huge fights, but we do have altercations. Rupert [Grint] I don't really know. I don't spend that much time with him. Emma and I spend a lot more time together.

What is it like working with director Mike Newell and the new cast members, such as Katie Leung?
Working with Mike Newell has been fantastic. We don't see that much of each other when we're not filming. Katie is a completely, really, really natural actor–and she's really cool.

Are you shy, like you are with Cho Chang, in real life?
I'm quite shy, but I'd like to think that I'm not. I don't have a girlfriend, but I try. Sometimes I find myself not knowing what to say to [girls]. I don't understand girls yet, but I'm trying to.

Which scenes did you most enjoy filming in The Goblet of Fire?
The underwater scenes were the most interesting and the most fun. I had two ear infections from being underwater so much. Mike told us, “Don't try to actually speak your lines underwater. Just move your mouth.”

Do you have one favorite scene?
I did enjoy the graveyard scene in an intense kind of way. Remembering all the scenes does become a blur. There's also another scene in the bathroom in a hot tub that I enjoyed.

If you could have one magical power of Harry's, what would it be?
That I could do everything with the wand, like cast spells.

What will life be like for you after Harry Potter?
I want to continue to be an actor and maybe be a director. If I could direct one really great film, then I'd never want to direct again. I have a certain confidence about my acting now.

Thanks to Heidi for the tip! And please – behave in those comments…

Dan Answers Questions and Gives Fans a Recipe

Posted by jenna on 12/05/05

Both Page and I have received the first preview of Dan's next newsletter that will be sent out to fans soon. In it he answers a few questions that were sent in by readers of DanRadcliffe.com – he even gives fans one of his favorite recipes! (You can see the recipe for BAKED GNOCCHI BOLOGNESE by clicking on the full story link below). Thanks very much to Dan for taking the time to send these to us!

Newsletter Preview ::

For this newsletter, I have decided to answer several questions which have been posted on Danradcliffe.com. Just for the record, the questions were chosen at random by a friend and not by me because as everyone knows I never visit websites.

1. HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK DO YOU HAVE GUITAR LESSONS AND DO YOU ENJOY THEM?

Unfortunately, because I have been so busy on Goblet of Fire and revising for my exams I have stopped having lessons as there weren’t enough hours in the day!!!!!!! However I hope to get back to them when things ease up a little.

2. CURRENTLY WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE SONGS?

Retreat by The Rakes, Not Everyone by Nine Black Alps and Tuned To A Different Station by Dogs

3. HOW TALL ARE YOU?

5’5 and a half inches – the half inch is very important!

4. WHAT MOVIE HAVE YOU SEEN RECENTLY?

The German film The Edukators directed by Hans Weingartner – loved it!

5. WHAT IS THE MOST PLAYED SONG ON YOUR IPOD?

No Surprises by Radiohead

6. WHAT IS THE MOST BEWILDERING THING ABOUT GIRLS?

I never know whether they are laughing with me or at me.

7. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK AT THE MOMENT?

I have just finished 1984 by George Orwell and loved it.

8. IS THERE SOMETHING YOU HAVE LEARNED TO COOK YET?

Yes, I love cooking Baked Gnocchi Bolognese (it’s very easy and a bit of a cheat). It’s a recipe by Delia Smith and you can find it at Danradcliffe.com and Danradcliffe.co.uk. If I can make it – anyone can!!!!!!

9. IS THERE ANYTHING ABOUT GIRLS THAT ANNOY YOU?

Yes, girls who are totally obsessed with being cool.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE SIMPSON EPISODE

Currently Homer Loves Flanders (Series 5)

*** Please be patient in receiving replies from Dan via post as he is in the midst of exams and will reply to you as soon as he can. And again, let's all thank Dan for sending us this preview!

More Interviews with Dan on MSN Video

Posted by allo on 11/05/05

MSN Video has posted three video clips previewing Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, including two short interviews with Dan and some raw, behind-the-scenes footage. While all three clips are very similar to what we've seen already this week, one of the interviews with Dan does go into a little more detail with some new quotes about Harry falling in love.

quote:

"Dan: And so I feel really sorry for him in some parts simply because I know how it feels to be standing there going… (sighs)… huh, yeah, and having nothing to say."

To find the clips, go to MSN Video and type “Harry Potter” in the Video Search box. You will need Internet Explorer 6 or higher to view them. If you can't see the clips, click on the Full Story link below for transcripts of the three clips. Thanks very much to Nadia for the tip!


And if you're having trouble keeping up with all the new video links that have come out around the Net this week, we've rounded them all up on our offsite videos page. Thanks to Veritaserum for some of that link info.

If you've been enjoying all the video footage and teaser reports about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire that have come out over the last 24 hours, then don't forget the big TV event this weekend: US viewers can see an exclusive sneak preview, including cast interviews and clips, of GOF during ABC's special four-hour presentation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets this Saturday, May 7th, at 7:00PM ET/PT.

Coincidentally, over in Canada, CBC is also showing a four-hour presentation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on Saturday, May 7th, at 7:00PM ET/PT. According to the CBC website, this will include a “sneak peek behind the scenes to look at the movie magic that brought Harry Potter to the screen. And you'll hear from the woman who conjured all this – with a dream on a train from Manchester to London – author J.K. Rowling.” Unfortunately, there's no mention of GOF sneak previews… sorry, Canada. cry.gif

UPDATE: Thanks to reader Astrid for letting us know that viewers in Canada WILL see GOF sneaks during the CBC presentation and also on ABC!

This coming Monday, May 9th, US viewers can see another report from the GOF set on E! News Live, which airs at 7:00PM ET/PT on E! channel. We managed to capture a 30-second teaser for this report from tonight's broadcast:

Daniel Radcliffe, the 15-year-old who plays Potter, has said he will definitely be back as Harry in the fifth movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which starts filming next year.

Radcliffe says he enjoyed diving, despite some minor drawbacks.

“It did sting a bit in the eyes, but other than that and the ear infections, it was fantastic.”

In another scene, he slides down a roof to battle a dragon. “It was pretty much a vertical drop of about 50 feet,” Radcliffe says. “I was on a wire going so fast that my mind didn't have time to catch up with my body and go, 'Wow, I'm falling.' It was fun after the first take. But at the beginning, I was absolutely terrified.”

Posted by jenna on 02/05/05

Warner Bros and IMAX announced this morning that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will be released in IMAX and conventional theaters simultaneously this year.

You might recall Prisoner of Azkaban was released in IMAX theaters last year at the same time as the conventional theatrical release. Shortly after, our website and TLC held the fan party at the IMAX theater in Florida.

Let me just say – you haven't seen a movie (especially a Harry Potter movie) until you've seen it on an IMAX screen …
