Gary Oldman Praises Daniel Radcliffe
Actor Gary Oldman, who played the part of Sirius Black in the Harry Potter movies, had nothing but praise for Dan during a recent MTV interview to promote his new film, Red Riding Hood:
“He’s in a sort of different league, Dan. I don’t know many 17 or 18 year olds who would have done ‘Equus,’ and now he’s singing and dancing on Broadway,” Oldman said. “[He’s] dedicated. He takes it very seriously, and he works very hard.”
It’s especially the case when it came to Radcliffe’s willingness to take singing and dancing lessons before he got the lead role in the Broadway musical “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying,” which he is performing in right now. Apparently Oldman and Radcliffe had had conversations about Radcliffe’s work ethic when it came to the show, and the 21-year-old actor’s commitment to being the best performer he could be really blew Oldman away.”
Enjoy the interview!
