Daniel Radcliffe – Cash for Questions
Posted by coralie on 30/04/07
There is a ‘Cash for Question’ feature involving Daniel posted up at Q4Music.com that allows you the chance of winning £25 if you participate and your question for Dan is selected. Here are the details:
"Libertines-loving Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe will be the next person to face the probing interrogation of Q’s Cash For Questions feature. Here’s your opportunity to ask him whatever you want, from what it was like meeting Jarvis Cocker or how often he plays the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind The Bollocks on the Harry Potter set – and if your query is answered by the actor himself, you could bag yourself £25.
Only the sharpest, funniest questions will be put to him. Send your questions, along with your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org and please mark your email “Daniel Radcliffe”. Good luck!"
Please note: If you happen to read any rude or vulgar questions posted up under the ‘cash for questions’ feature, please make sure you hit the ‘Report Abuse’ button in order to have them removed.
Many thanks to Lauren for the tip!

American Idol Tonight
Posted by jenna on 25/04/07
Don’t forget, American Idol will air part two of its special fund-raising event tonight, including something special from Daniel. Contrary to reports made by other media outlets, he will not be there on stage, but in remote attendance via video stream (pre-recorded).
I can’t tell you what he will be doing during his appearance just yet, but I can tell you it is not something you have seen him do before. Should be a real knee-slapper though.
All monies raised will go to various charities, including U.S. Fund for UNICEF, The Global Fund, Save the Children, Nothing but Nets and Malaria No More.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, the video segment featuring Dan was NOT included in tonight’s show and so far there is no explanation as to why it was omitted. (It is unclear whether the “technical difficulties” experienced late in the show are related to the lack of video.) We’ll try to find out what happened and whether the video will be made available somewhere online in the future.

IMAX Corporation plans to use its proprietary 2D to 3D conversion technology to transform approximately 20 minutes at the end of the film – which is being digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® using IMAX DMR (Digital Re-Mastering) technology – into IMAX® 3D.

Dan’s 18th Birthday Project
Posted by jenna on 18/04/07
You have all been doing an amazing job with this latest birthday project for Daniel. We have had well over 2000 entrants to this project already!!! Give yourselves a hand people. This still isn’t enough – we need MORE!
If you haven’t sent in your photo to be included in this monstrous photo mosaic – there is no time like the present. (Please keep in mind duplicate entries will be deleted.) ONE entry per individual. Send your photo in NOW.
This weekend we will be launching our Demelza fund-raising project that goes hand-in-hand with the mosaic project. There will be participatory prizes and a special fan-dedication piece for those that donate. More details coming!
Dan’s MySpace – er – NOT
Posted by jenna on 16/04/07
Because we have been getting many, many e-mails about a particular MySpace account that claims to be the “official” Daniel Radcliffe MySpace I am going to post about it here. So let me just say this rant about it then:
NO, NO, NO – Dan does not now, has no plans for, and will not have a MySpace account (this includes any other online community, chat or e-mail to fans – if someone says they are Dan they are lying). Dan does not chat with fans online, e-mail them or create online community profiles.
This is something he has said on many occasions to the media, through our website and to me personally. This is also something I have repeatedly posted about here as well. Nothing has changed.
For all of the HP and Dan fan sites that have posted about it (you know who you are), or told people it was real – you need to retract your advertisement for this fake “space” – please.
It is not nice to fool innocent fans about such things, but many people think it is great fun unfortunately. Please check about these things before you post news up that could potentially be harmful to those reported to. The imposter’s “MySpace” will be dealt with. Thanks to all of you who wrote in about it.

We’ll add more links later if we find any new ones.
Update: You can also check out our gallery for pics of this appearance – more photos will be added later as well.

More Praise for Daniel from Equus Co-Star Joanna Christie
Posted by coralie on 10/04/07
In a recent interview for theatre.com, actress Joanna Christie, who plays stable girl Jill Mason in the current West End revival of Equus, spoke in glowing terms about meeting and working with Daniel Radcliffe:
"He’s so down to earth and normal. He doesn’t make you feel nervous. There’s nothing starry about him. He’s one in a million. He’s 17 and he’s had such an extraordinary life—he could be a nightmare and so messed up by his bizarre teenage years, living on a massive film set and having enormous global fame. But he’s so lovely and such a gentleman and so polite and intelligent. He’s an amazing guy."
Joanna also had this to say about Daniel’s acting and his many loyal fans:
"It’s been great for Daniel—it has given him the respect he deserves as an actor, and he has proved himself more than capable of doing something apart from Harry Potter. But more importantly than that, the response from Daniel’s fans and regular theatregoers and anyone else who has just been curious has been absolutely amazing. The audiences are such a mixture of people, and they all really, really love it. There are hundreds of people at the stage door every night, and they’re all very complimentary. That means a lot."
Of course we already know all this, but isn’t it lovely to read such comments over and over again?
Many thanks to Kasey for the tip!

Lots of scans! I am playing catch up due to my moving and everything so I have had limited access to the internet until now.
Thanks very much to Lynda, Tracey, Mary, Kim, Michelle, and Lauren for sending in scans to OK Magazine, Sci-Fi Magazine, Movie Magic, Total Film, The Sun, Sky Movies, Entertainment Weekly and Ripley’s Believe It or Not Comic. There are 63 scans in all – needless to say I am not posting all of the links in this post! You can sort through them in the two main galleries where they were posted below:
Dan and American Idol
Posted by jenna on 04/04/07
There has been a bunch of rumors floating around about Daniel guest starring on the American Idol show the 25th of April. This is not going to happen…he is not going to fly over to “physically” be on the show or judge anything, but…
FOX, AMERICAN IDOL and the Charity Projects Entertainment Fund (CPEF is a charitable U.S. organization) have partnered on an historic television event – IDOL GIVES BACK – a two-night special to help raise awareness and funds for children and young people in extreme poverty in America and Africa.
The money raised by the two shows will equally benefit the U.S. and Africa. In the U.S., the money will be distributed to Save the Children and other U.S. organizations working to deliver programs to children living in some of the most disadvantaged areas of America. View a video about the project HERE.
Daniel will be involved in this…in some way…but that is all I can say about it right now. Stay tuned for more information!
New Photo of Dan in December Boys
Posted by coralie on 04/04/07
There is a new, albeit small, photo of Daniel in December Boys at safilm.com. The photo is featured in the ‘made in SA’ showcase section of the South Australian Film Corporation’s website. There is also a tiny (did I mention how tiny it is?) photo of Dan with co-star Teresa Palmer here.
