Dan on ‘Longlist’ for Evening Standard Theatre Award

Posted by coralie on 31/10/07

According to, ‘a dazzling year of performances on the London stage will be honoured at the 2007 Evening Standard Theatre Awards. Stars including Daniel Radcliffe, Robert Lindsay, John Simm, Jessica Lange, Billie Piper, Rosamund Pike and Kristin Scott Thomas are among the dozens who are under consideration for prizes.’

The judges include theatre critics Nicholas de Jongh of the Evening Standard, Georgina Brown of the Mail on Sunday, Susannah Clapp of The Observer, Benedict Nightingale of The Times and Charles Spencer of the Daily Telegraph. You will find the ‘longlist’ of potential honorees, including Dan in the Best Actor category for Equus, HERE.

Many thanks to Sarinee for the fabulous news! Hopefully Dan will also end up on the shortlist of potential honorees. Let’s cross our collective fingers for him, because he certainly deserves to be recognized for bringing a complex character like Alan Strang to life so brilliantly and with such passion night after night in Equus.

My Boy Jack Treats: Interviews, DVD Cover and Scans

Posted by coralie on 31/10/07

I know it’s Halloween, but we have no tricks for you today… Only yummy Dan related treats! toung.gif

To start you off, here are two excellent new interviews with Daniel Radcliffe and Carey Mulligan, who plays the part of Elsie Kipling, about My Boy Jack:


"Dan: The story was the first thing that attracted me to this project. It’s tragic and beautifully written. I think the strength of the story is the key thing that draws anybody to a drama. You can have a good character to play, but it doesn’t amount to anything if it’s a weak story"


"Carey: I love the birthday party scene where Rudyard tells an audience of children a story. The extras weren’t all that interested in what David was saying because whenever Daniel (Radcliffe) walked in, all the kids were just fighting the urge to look at him"

Read them HERE and HERE, courtesy of Radcakesfan.

We also have pictures of the My Boy Jack DVD cover, thanks to Janina, Mira and Amazon UK:

And finally we have Tracey to thank for these scans from Radio Times magazine, featuring a photo of Dan in MBJ:

*UPDATED* HBP Filming in Lacock Now Ended

Posted by coralie on 28/10/07

Over the past few days, our Order partner TLC has been posting news and reader reports about the filming of some scenes from the upcoming movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in the lovely village of Lacock, situated in Wiltshire. Filming is now over in that area, and it appears that Dan has once again been both gracious and generous with his fans; although according to this article, people thronged outside the barricaded entrance to the village and security guards were ordered to stop anyone from photographing or video taping the film shoot, a few lucky people managed to get autographs, and one even reported that Dan


"Patiently signed her copy of Half-Blood Prince, along with others, and said ‘Its so dark, I just wish I could see you all."

What more can we say? He’s simply the best! amuse.gif

Many thanks to Sabine for the tip!

UPDATE: Click on the full story link below to read a first hand account of what it was like to be there, kindly sent in by Zoe. Many thanks to her for that. Enjoy!

Posted by coralie on 20/10/07

Illusionist Paul Kieve, who served as magical consultant during the filming of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, has written a book on famous magicians called Hocus Pocus, and who better to write an introduction for it than Daniel Radcliffe himself? Our very own Lauren has created a bit of magic of her own (a sleight of hand trick that involves a rapid transfer of cash from one person’s hand to another) to bring you scans of the book cover and introduction, so many thanks to her for that.

J.K. Rowling Speaks of Sharing Hallows Secrets with Dan and Emma

Posted by coralie on 18/10/07

According to an interview with J.K. Rowling posted up on the MTV Movies Blog, the author had some revealing conversations with the Harry Potter stars about their characters’ fates in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows *Spoiler Warning for those who have not yet read the book!*


"I went down to the set and Dan (Radcliffe) and I had a real chat and it was great. And I said to him ‘Dumbledore’s giving me a bit of trouble.’ And he said, ‘But Dumbledore’s dead!’ And then immediately ‘Don’t tell me! Don’t tell me!’”

But that didn’t stop Radcliffe from “pretending that he knew the ending of book seven,” Rowling laughed, saying his loose lips got him his just desserts. “He went down the corridor to the other kids, because they were still being schooled at the time, and he said, ‘She’s told me, I know what happens,’” Rowling related. “Of course, then he was besieged and started to panic.”

“He got a little taste of what it’s like to be me,” the author cackled. “Serves him right!"

Rowling also said that Emma Watson


"Nearly fell off the chair laughing when I told her who she had to kiss… If it’s (the 7th movie) faithful to the story she has to kiss both of them (Harry as well as Ron), which I think is kind of funny."

STV December Boys Interview with Dan

Posted by coralie on 09/10/07

Many thanks to Frenchi for sending in another link to a video interview with Dan about December Boys. This one is from STV, and you can watch it HERE.

Unfortunately it’s been rather difficult for some of Daniel’s fans to show proper support for December Boys, as the movie didn’t open in many of the cities where it was scheduled for release (including mine). I guess we will simply have to wait for the DVD to voice our approval for what appears to be a lovely, non-violent movie!

Turkish Trendy cover, Turkish Trendy 1
Sunday Times Magazine cover, STM 1, STM 2, STM 3, STM 4, STM 5


"And with the nudity thing… the thing is, if I did the first production of Equus in 30 years and didn’t get my kit off in probably the most iconic scene in the play, people would be going ‘He’s not really committed to this!’ It’s got to be done. It makes me look much more vulnerable if I’ve got, you know, pants off rather than pants on!”

And Dan Radcliffe snorts like a teenage boy. Albeit a super-rich, ultra-famous, highly talented, rather smart and decent one."

David Heyman Respects Dan and his Choices

Posted by coralie on 05/10/07

There is a very good interview with David Heyman in Variety, in which the Harry Potter producer had this to say about Daniel and his various projects outside of Harry Potter


"You don’t put a stranglehold on an ambitious young actor who wants to stretch.” (Talking of Radcliffe and his headline-making turn on the London stage earlier this year). “Everybody talks about him being naked in ‘Equus’ but not that his character blinded six horses. There seems to be more concern about Dan’s willy than the substance of the play. But I respect him and his choices"

Heyman also mentions that one of the reasons the young actors in the Potter series are so good is because


"They’re learning by doing and also by watching. Dan, for instance, has talked about what he’s learned from Gary Oldman. The older actors are quite generous."
