Currently on a well-earned holiday in New York (last week’s Frankenstein rehearsals notwithstanding), Dan, who said he planned to spend his time off seeing some shows, caught yesterday’s performance of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, visiting the cast backstage after the show.

Dan is set to portray UK athlete Sebastian Coe in the film Gold, which dramatises Coe’s rivalry with fellow athlete Steve Ovett during the run up to the Moscow 1980 Olympics. The film is based on the book The Perfect Distance, by Pat Butcher.
An epic story of the rivalry between Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe.
Britain in the late 70s; two athletes are about to rewrite the record books for the middle distance running. Their battle will go down in history as the most intense and combative sporting clash of its era. This is the compelling story of Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett, two men from very different backgrounds, two athletes with very different styles, both with one goal – win Olympic Gold. A taut, adrenalized look at a clash that had a nation gripped.
Filming is scheduled to start in April 2014, in the UK and Russia, and is a joint production from BBC Films, The British Film Institute, and AL Films. Woman in Black’s James Watkins will be directing.
I know Dan Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan are grown men, and grown men typically don’t like to be referred to as cute or adorable, but then they really shouldn’t give interviews like this, or finish one another’s sentences.
Dan and Dane spoke to Buzzfeed’s Adam B. Vary about the friendship that has grown from their first meeting during Dane’s audition for the role of Lucien Carr. Both of them were left with a favourable impression of the other, and that laid the foundation for building a relationship that would carry over to their characters.
Dane said, “You can learn a lot about a person from working with them, and how they work, and the conversations that come up because of what you’re working on. So in many ways, as we were working, we were still also getting to know each other as people.”
Dan agrees. “It’s just that great thing of when you actually meet someone for the first time and you talk about the way you want to work, and you are open with each other. I suppose that’s the effort you have to make. Because when you sign up [for a movie], you don’t have to sign up to, like, get to know somebody and being really open with them about stuff. But when you work with people who are willing to do that and go there with you then it really can be a very bonding thing as well good for the job.”
