Reminder: Daniel’s 19th Birthday Project/Demelza House Fundraiser
Posted by coralie on 30/06/08
Just a small reminder that Daniel will be turning 19 next month, so please help us wish him a happy birthday by participating in our Reel Love Birthday Project & fundraiser for Demelza House!
Rather than just send in your wishes once you donate to the hospice, we’d like you to get a little creative. Think of your favourite line from any film, or think of a line that most reminds you of Daniel. Send it in along with your name and country and be included in our Reel Love production right here for everyone to see!
Each “screen” represents fans in various countries all over the world. Your line will scroll, along with your name and country, within its regional section.
Remember – any amount is welcome, whether one pound or twenty – all contributions help the children of Demelza. There is no such thing as a small donation.
When donating please e-mail your world pay receipt to Jenna, and don’t forget to select Daniel Radcliffe as your source when you send your donation online. To find out more about donating, visit our How You Can Help page. If you already know what to do, go DONATE NOW!!!
The changing screens will be updated weekly followed by the total on July 23, so don’t delay and check out the Birthday Page today!
Equus Website Updated for Broadway Run
Posted by coralie on 28/06/08
The Official Equus website has now been updated in preparation for the play’s Broadway run, including a very interesting In Conversation With Peter Shaffer feature:
“Whoever plays Strang doesn’t have to be 17 in reality but he does need to be able to convey a rawness, an impressionability and a sensitivity.”
Check the site on a regular basis for news and casting updates!
Many thanks to Jeannine for the tip

Daniel Radcliffe Maked Forbes Celebrity 100 List
Posted by lauren on 12/06/08
Every year, Forbes.com uses a fiendishly complicated formula to work out who the Top 100 Celebrities in the world are.
This year, Daniel Radcliffe moves up from #79 to #64, where he ranks between Gwen Stefani and Alicia Keys.
“Last summer the British-born boy wizard, 18, signed a jaw-dropping contract worth an estimated $50 million to continue his leading role in the last two installments of the Harry Potter series. (The final story, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, has since split into two movies, meaning even more cash for him.) He also played the title role in the BBC’s TV movie My Boy Jack, a World War I story about Rudyard Kipling’s ill-fated son, and he’ll be baring all on Broadway in Equus. ”
Yes, we know they got the title of book seven wrong…
Many thanks, as always, to everyone who sent us the link.

Many thanks, as ever, to radcakesfan for the tip off.
