Order of the Phoenix Wins Teen Choice Award
Posted by coralie on 27/08/07
Good news! Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix won the award for Choice Summer Movie – Drama/Action Adventure in this year’s Teen Choice Awards.
Congratulations to the fabulous cast and crew, including all the people who worked their magic behind the scenes to bring us this wonderful movie version of J.K. Rowling’s fifth book in the epic Harry Potter series!
So let’s hope this is only the first of many accolades for OOTP, including perhaps some well deserved recognition for Dan. We will keep some cyber champagne on the rocks just in case!
Thanks to Lo and the many other readers who emailed us about this.
Emma Speaks of Dan, plus DB Scan
Posted by coralie on 26/08/07
Many thanks to Jain for sending in a scan of an interview with Emma Watson in the Daily Mail in which she shared a few thoughts about Dan:
"I can talk to him for hours. He’s very witty and intelligent, and says what he thinks. He’s an interesting guy – even if he did look at me like I had three heads when I told him I didn’t know who Gary Oldman was."
And thanks to Annie for a scan from Parade Magazine promoting the oh so long awaited arrival of December Boys in movie theatres: Parade Magazine
Daniel Radcliffe Talks About December Boys with DanRadcliffe.com
Posted by jenna on 24/08/07
Last July I had the privilege of being the first person to interview Daniel about his upcoming production, December Boys.
I have now been given permission to release this interview, with more coverage of December Boys coming in the next few weeks.
"The difference between Maps and Harry is marked. They are very different characters. Whereas Harry often wears his heart on his sleeve and is quite open – and not very good at always hiding his emotions – Maps is a very, very restrained character."

Posted by coralie on 24/08/07
I apologize if this clip has already been posted here, but for the life of me I can’t remember seeing it before and it’s just too delightful to miss!

Many thanks to Kelly for sending in this link to a moviefone video in which Dan, Rupert and Emma ask each other questions submitted to them by readers (click on the ‘Watch the Full Interview’ link to the right to see the clip without interruptions).

Watch until the very end, when Emma teases Dan about not sounding excited enough when telling fans to go see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

snitchseeker.com has posted up a video clip taped during the Los Angeles premiere of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in which Dan speaks, amongst other things, of the possible fate of Harry in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:
"Channel 18: J.K. Rowling has her ending for Harry Potter, what would you like to see happen to Harry?
Dan Radcliffe: I have no idea. You know, I think Harry will live. I didn’t always think that. I think he’ll live, and I think maybe Snape will be the hero."

According to a recent press release, Harry Potter fans living in Europe (I know, I know… but maybe worldwide shipping is in the company’s plans for the near future!) can now purchase professionally printed pictures in various formats taken on the set of all the Harry Potter movies. British company Comprints, in collaboration with Warner Brothers, is selling these pictures, known as ‘Unit Photography’, through a new website called movieprints.co.uk. The pictures are really nice to look at, even for those of us who can’t buy any at the present time!

Last, but certainly not least, we have a fun new quote for you sent in by Tracey:
"Source: ITV1 Teletext, Showbiz Spy.
GET OFF YOUR BIKE DANIEL!!
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe had to make a confession on the set of ITV1 drama My Boy Jack in which he plays Rudyard Kipling’s tragic Son ( Nov 11th).
A spy says: “There’s a scene where he had to ride a 90-year-old motorbike.
“Then he tells us he hadn’t a driving licence and can’t ride a motorbike! We had to insist on a stuntman double. But Dan did sit on it while the engine was off."
It’s Dan, Only Butter!
Posted by jenna on 17/08/07
Welcome to the world of the strange and unusual…a place where all things are made of butter – even Harry Potter. According to First Coast News, a Dan-like Harry Potter is immortalized in butter. The Boy Wizard stands tall and proud as a butter sculpture at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.
He has his trademark glasses and his wand, of course. He’s standing next to the famous butter cow, a crowd pleaser at the fair since the early 90s. Moo…
Thanks to Ginny for the tip!

Imelda Staunton: I Did Slap Dan!
Posted by coralie on 15/08/07
Many thanks to Laurie from Snitchseeker.com for sending in a small transcript from her website’s Order of the Phoenix Los Angeles red carpet interview with actress Imelda Staunton (Professor Umbridge). This little part was about Daniel:
"SnitchSeeker: Did you really slap Dan? Did you enjoy it? And how many takes was it?
Staunton: I did slap him. Of course I didn’t enjoy it. And we did quite a few takes. And he was very brave."

Friday Feast of Scans and Links
Posted by coralie on 10/08/07
Also many thanks to Manaal for a link to yet another interview with Dan to promote Order of the Phoenix:
Event Guide Interview
"For Radcliffe, it’s just another day at the office, the young actor having developed a method of tricks and treats to help him through the annual promotional circus. The way the rest of us develop our own little methods of surviving long-distance flights.
One of the tricks today, he tells me, is a conspiracy between himself and his two lead co-stars in the Potter franchise, Rupert Grint (who plays comic sidekick Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (who plays the determined Hermione Granger) to give one unsuspecting Japanese journalist completely different answers to the same question. “There’s always this tendency to get the same questions over and over again,” smiles Radcliffe, “and so, you know, we thought we could have a little fun with that. The poor woman is going to go home with a real twister. It’ll be interesting to see how she makes sense of it all."
Care for a Few More Scans of Dan with your Coffee?

Daniel Radcliffe Writes to DanRadcliffe.com Fans
Posted by jenna on 07/08/07
As most of you know, DanRadcliffe.com held a fund-raiser for Dan’s 18th birthday. We raised a total of 1,679.46 pounds sterling. Of course Daniel read all of the wishes sent in by those that donated to Demelza, as well as the comments on the main site for his birthday, of which he said, “Thank you for all the messages in the comments section which I really enjoyed reading – something I never do – but hey once a year can’t hurt!!”
We also created a huge mosaic poster for Daniel, comprised of over 3000+ fan photo submissions!!! There was a huge response and Daniel loved it! He says about the poster, “A huge thank you for the amazing poster which I received last week to mark my eighteenth birthday. I will treasure it forever as it marks a very important milestone in my life.”
The rest of the letter went on to say:
“Thank you, also, for putting together a fund-raiser for Demelza House – you are all so kind and generous and it makes a huge difference to this extraordinary place.
As always the encouragement I receive from everyone on this site is staggering and in this, a particularly busy year, it means a lot to have your support. I also had the pleasure of reading the amazing messages sent to me during the first preview and opening night of Equus. I met Coralie during the last week of Equus and she presented me with them – all I can say is I had a lot of cyber support! Thank you and apologies for the delay in acknowledging them.
I am currently in Dublin filming MY BOY JACK, which is going extremely well, and then I will be setting off on a whirlwind tour for DECEMBER BOYS before returning to the UK to resume the sixth HARRY POTTER.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the words of encouragement you have sent throughout the year. I have a very busy time ahead but it is a very exciting period and I truly value the support I receive from you Jenna and everyone who contributes to DanRadcliffe.com. I hope to see many of you when I promote DECEMBER BOYS in both the U.S. and Australia.
Well – so there you have it…a little hint about the upcoming U.S. promotion of December Boys from Dan…of course, only the premieres in Oz can be officially confirmed at this time.
As always, we thank all of you for participating in our fan projects. It is always so much fun putting these things together for Dan from his many fans. All of you are much more than site visitors, you are like family! We appreciate you, your continued support, and your never-ending patience when we have sometimes had technical difficulties in the past over media-related news posts!
As far as Dan – well – we all love Dan don’t we? What’s not to love? (That is a rhetorical question). It is an honor to operate a website for someone so magnificent! Cheers to you mate!

December Boys Premiere(s)
Posted by jenna on 05/08/07
I have been given permission to release the dates for the December Boys premieres in Oz. The first will take place on Sunday, September 9, in Melbourne. The second will occur the following Tuesday, September 11, in Sydney.
Dan will be in attendance. We have staff covering both events – so look for that coverage when the time comes! Place and time confirmations to come. And – no, sorry, there are no other premieres aside from these two.
Update:Just to clarify a few rumors – there are no other premieres anywhere else for this film (i.e. UK or US). There will be, however, a few special screenings. Screenings are NOT premieres – no red carpet or anything like that. They are an advanced peek (by invitation only) at a movie before its release.
Sometimes – and I stress sometimes – some of the cast show up for these events, however, it is generally the director or producers involved with the production, and very rarely key members of the cast. I will let you know more about the details as they are finalized. Right now, nothing is for sure as far as these screenings are concerned, so don’t get your hopes up please.
