Daniel Radcliffe took part in a very lengthy interview with USA Weekend to promote Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (so much so it was split into three stories, here, here, and here). Dan discussed his work in How to Succeed, continuing on as an actor after the Harry Potter series, what Chris Columbus taught him as a young child actor, and some tidbits about his life. That, along with a new photo shoot, are here.
At what point did you start preparing for your post-Potter life? A couple of years back?
It was more than that probably even. My agent and I always felt it was important that I should be seen to be doing other things while Harry Potter was going on, to ease that transition afterward. If you spend 10 years doing one series of films, and then you suddenly go, “Look, and I’m doing this!” it’s quite a jump for people. Whereas if, over the course of those 10 years, you go off in between films and do other stuff, whether it’s a film that doesn’t get seen by many people like December Boys or a play that attracts quite a lot of attention like Equus, there’s an awareness that you’re out there doing other stuff and you want to do other stuff. When it comes to this point where we are moving on, its going to be a lot easier for people to accept that transition.
You’re one of a select group of people in this world who can cause an instant, Beatles-like riot. Is there anybody you’re able to talk about that with?
It’s interesting because the people who have had the same experience are the people you don’t talk to about it. You both know, you’ve both been there and you know what it’s like and how odd it is. Everyone has their own ways of dealing with it and putting it into perspective, but there’s a recognition. It would be hard to explain. If I was to see Rob Pattinson, there would be a knowledge that we both know what it’s like and we don’t really talk about it because our opinions on it are quite dull. [Laughs] There’s an acknowledgement of “I know what you’re talking about,” but I’m sure we wouldn’t dwell on it.
Do you feel that that relationship was helped by the fact that you always worked with older actors in the Potter movies?
Now that you’re on your second production, have you figured out why so many people want to get to Hollywood rather than stay on Broadway?
