As many of you know, there have been a few articles surfacing online with regards to Daniel taking on a new role in an upcoming production entitled Journey, about a British photographer, Dan Eldon, who met with a tragic end in 1993.

I can now confirm for you that Daniel is indeed involved with this project, however, there have been no dates for filming or anything else set so please be patient and I will post information as it becomes available and confirmed officially.

Posted by jenna on 30/12/07

I hope everyone’s holiday has been going fabulous so far — I am just getting back in the door at home myself and I wanted to take this time to remind everyone about the Demelza Fund-Raiser for the holidays. This project will come to a close tomorrow at midnight (December 31st) – just in time to ring in the new year!

You will also be entered into the prize drawing we are sponsoring (now including a December Boys poster, OOTP DVD, HP DVD Game and a Dumbledore’s Army Wand set – it is a parchment/wooden-like stand that mounts on a wall and includes the wands of all the DA members).

We have done a great job so far with donations, and all are appreciated — no matter how big or small.

Dan is MSN Man of the Year + a Fun Quote!

Posted by coralie on 17/12/07

Daniel Radcliffe is officially MSN UK’s Hotlist Man of the Year, and I’m sure many readers here contributed to the title! Thanks to Kerry and Lynda for the tip.

We also received a scan from Olivia, complete with a delightful quote from Dan about filming in Australia toung.gif

quote:

"The first thing anyone says to you when you say ‘I’m filming in Adelaide’ is ‘Oh, the City of Churches’. I mean, that can’t be the tourist board’s idea of a great slogan."

Silly Moment of the Day (or something to be thankful for): I’m really happy that I don’t actually look like this: toung.gif when I laugh!

DanRadcliffe.com’s New Look for 2008

Posted by jenna on 17/12/07

Many of you were probably wondering what was going on earlier when the site went on hiatus for a few hours…well, now you know! (You may need to refresh your browser.) Big thanks to Tania for all of her work on the flash banner. bigsmile.gif

I hope you like this latest style. I wanted to get back to a more organic/earthy feel for the new year.

I was going to upload this on Christmas day, however, I will be out of town and internet service will be touch and go (not well enough for almost 700 pages to upload), so I wanted to do this before I left. There will still be some great Christmas goodies going live on the day, so make sure you tune in then.

Please don’t forget about the Demelza fund-raiser for the holidays. We have had a great response and hope to keep the momentum going throughout this month.

I have approval to extend the fund-raiser through December 31st (It was going to end this Friday). All those who send donations between now and then will be entered into the prize drawing and may submit a wish for Daniel for the holidays to be included in the book to him.

Speaking of that, I have one other thing to add to the drawing aside from the December Boys poster and the Order of the Phoenix DVD — a Harry Potter DVD game. This is our way of showing appreciation to those that choose to give this holiday season.

Christmas day I will also post a report about all of the things we have been up to with Demelza for the holidays, so watch out for that as well!

Celebrated Canadian Artist Paints Daniel in Equus

Posted by coralie on 15/12/07

A large oil painting by renown Canadian artist André Durand depicting his own special rendition of the biblical figure of Daniel in Daniel in the Lions’ Den was unveiled during a private viewing at the London Zoo on November 29th in aid of the Demelza House Hospice for Sick Children.

quote:

"The painting was inspired by the courage of the biblical hero Daniel and some of the bravest children of all, those who are cared for by Demelza Hospice Care for Children."

According to a press release from Picturebusiness.uk.com, Mr. Durand has also painted portraits of another well known and beloved Daniel

quote:

"A series of coincidences have weaved themselves together to create this fascinating celebration of Durand’s art and the Asian lions in the London zoo, which will help raise funds for the children’s hospice Demelza, based in Kent and South London. Daniel Weston, who posed as Daniel the prophet in Durand’s epic portrayal of one of the Old Testament’s most iconic stories – shares his name with the main subject of the story of DANIEL IN THE LIONS’ DEN. Daniel Weston also has the same name as one of Demelza’s patrons – the film star and loyal supporter of the charity Daniel Radcliffe. Radcliffe is coincidentally now the subject of Durand’s newest allegory, EQUUS. In one of the studies for EQUUS, Daniel Radcliffe is captured in a dramatic moment of transformation from boyhood to manhood."

HBP will be Funny, According to Dan

Posted by coralie on 11/12/07

According to this new MTV article, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is definitely heading for the lighter side of the spectrum.

quote:

"If we pull it off right, it should be the funniest of the films so far,” Daniel Radcliffe promised."

I have to admit that I’m now very curious to see how this movie will turn out!

Dan’s Ambition: To Keep Acting

Posted by coralie on 10/12/07

There is another interesting article in today’s Winnipeg Sun, in which Daniel speaks of his commitment to the Harry Potter franchise and his ardent desire to continue acting well into the future.

quote:

"This is an industry that can be very fickle and can be very perfidious sometimes and will turn its back on people, but I hope that I can continue building up momentum and working hard just to make sure that I can actually sustain a career. My ambition is just to keep acting, essentially, and (that) means keep doing a lot of different roles. That’s all I want really."

Many thanks to Sabine and to Radcakesfan for the link!
