Daniel Radcliffe Covers 'Time Out New York'
Here’s what the 21-year-old English actor, who’s currently starring in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, had to share with the mag:
On being spotted by fans in New York City: “It’s very rare that I get stopped or get asked for an autograph or anything – none of which I mind – but people don’t really care that much. I just sort of walk by, and they say, ‘Oh, hi,’ and then walk on. It’s pretty cool, to be honest. You should be proud of that, as a city, that you’re very chilled out with celebrities. I do miss London, but if I have to spend a year somewhere else, New York is not a bad place to have to spend it.”
On performing at the Tony Awards: “There’s that moment when you’re all standing behind this huge LED screen, and suddenly you’re revealed like prizes on a game show, and Al Pacino is ten feet from you, and Mark Rylance and Bobby Cannavale and Sutton Foster and all these huge people.…it’s f—ing terrifying. [Laughs] But it was a huge thrill to perform there.”
On Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2: “I said to someone the other day, ‘It’s like the emotional range of Shakespeare with the action and blood of Tarantino.’ The body count in this film is massive.”
On the end of Harry Potter: “It’s very rare in your career that you get to play an action hero. I’m not the natural frame and stature of an action hero, so I may not get to play one again. Things like bursting out of the water in film six, surrounded by a ring of fire…I won’t get to do that again. I miss that stuff.”
