Daniel Radcliffe: Equus Rehearsals Under Way!

Daniel Radcliffe: Equus Rehearsals Under Way!

Harry Poter star Daniel Radcliffe enters Broadhurst Theatre in New York City early Sunday morning to rehearse for his new play Equus.

Radcliffe plays the disturbed Alan Strang, a seemingly normal 17-year-old who is fascinated by horses but inexplicably blinds six of them. The play, which has Radcliffe naked by the end of the play, tries to understand why.

“Offended mothers were calling up and saying I shouldn’t be doing this, that they weren’t going to go see it,” Radcliffe admitted recently. “OK, don’t see it. They’re treating it like it’s pornography, and it’s not. It’s only seven minutes at the end of the play when I’m naked, and I’m 19 now.”

This will be Radcliffe‘s Broadway debut. Previews start this Friday and opens Sept. 25.

    Some people are unbelievable, thinking they can tell others what they should do or not do… and I’m sure they haven’t even read the play, most people have a very distorted idea of what it’s about.

    I’m glad he is playing in a Peter Shaffer’s play, I hope someday he plays Amadeus, he would be perfect for it.
    Break a leg Daniel!

    I mean he looks secluded, he should shave and lose the cap and ipod, that just looks depressing.

    Marc: what a lot of silliness. You can try to make fun of Dan but it isn’t easy since he is, quite clearly, (1) bright (2) nice (3) talented (4) sensible. I suppose you could ask him if he thinks when one is 19 he is permitted to “flash” as much as he wants. Dan might find that funny. What is pertinent about Dan is that he has changed vastly from when he was 9. Then he was shy and diffident and unbelievably charming. Perfection in the role of David Copperfield. With his subsequent great success he has become very self confident, and I have no doubt that he is pleased about that, but the boyhood charm has disappeared. Now he is an adult actor, and pretty much like all the rest, except perhaps better behaved. His future will depend upon his professional smarts. I don’t think it will be terribly easy. He has drawbacks, like his small size and his lack of super good looks. He is nice looking but not super handsome. He will need to pick and choose his roles carefully.

    Lots of actors like to go around listening to music or whatever. It helps them avoid hearing all the screaming fans and other annoyances and it signals that they won’t pay any attention to you. Defensive device. Perfectly understandable. They can’t be bothered by fans all the time.

    I was about to write about how creepy this kid looks. Maybe Marc is right. I never saw one, but it seems like that old conundrum of the child star making that Awkward transition to adulthood. Creepy kid/ adult blinding horses. It all sounds too creepy to me. Glad my son is too young to know who he is. Would freak me out if my kid had been a fan of the”child star” to witness his transformation into a naked, gay animal abuser. All respects to gay people. I dont think the direction he took was so great to say the least!

    Dan and his advisors (parents) were/are smart to put him into other roles besides Harry Potter. He needs career-wise to be seen as an actor and not as HP. Shirley Temple is the case in point. She was so identified with her cute little girl roles that she never could transition to adult roles. Nobody was willing to see her as anything but little Miss Muppet or whatever. Other child actors have also burned out for the same reason. So Dan has done other things without waiting that DIS-identify him with Harry Potter. Whether Warner Bros. is happy is not his problem. He is determined to become an actor and not just an eternal Harry Potter. I hope he succeeds.

    Sunday: you don’t have a clue. Alan Strang is NOT gay. He has a horse obsession. The idea that nobody should play the role of a disturbed person is nonsense. Actors play such people all the time. Dan doesn’t look “creepy” except perhaps to you. You think he should have played a virginal little boy all his life? Yeah, that would be great, Radcliffe at 50 playing Harry Potter. You are silly and foolish. Good you never saw a HP movie. Those movies were full of “creepy” people. He was a wizard there. That would have been “creepy” to you, no doubt.

    If you want to see Dan in a comic role you should get the DVD of Extras where he plays a 17 year old sex-crazed Boy Scout who goes around propositioning all the females on the set.. He is beyond hilarious. One of the best things he has done. You can also see parts of it on You Tube. I recommend it highly.

    I think he’s hot even when he looks serious very early in the morning, this guy is rehearsing every day, morning and night, he’s not partying or going to clubs and staying till 3 or 4 am – this guy works so hard that sometimes I wonder if he ever enjoys his succesful career, and I know after the Equus run in Broadway is over at the end of January next year Dan will go back to London to play again Harry Potter in February for 11 months.

    Dan is among the HP kids the most talented, handsome, smart, well spoken and very charismatic!
