Daniel Radcliffe chatted with Nylon magazine about Victor Frankenstein, superfans, Emma Watson's HeForShe and more in a new interview with Nylon magazine. Highlights below.

Told from Igor’s perspective, Victor Frankenstein explores the young assistant’s backstory as well as the infamous outcome of the duo’s experiments. “I like the fact that it’s a studio movie with these big sets and sequences, but there’s also a cool intellectual debate going on—our innate fear of technology and the fear of people who push it beyond where we’re comfortable with it going—it felt like a nice combination,” he says.  

Still, he’s famously close with many of the series’ cast and crew—and not averse to the odd tomfoolery, especially with pal Tom Felton, a.k.a. Draco Malfoy. “We give each other shit via other people,” explains Radcliffe. “So if I’m doing an interview, and he’s about to do an interview with that person, I’ll say, ‘Ask him about Bryan,’ and Tom will know what that means.”

Radcliffe also speaks highly of former co-star Emma Watson’s HeForShe campaign to promote gender equality: “I think it’s fantastic that she’s bringing attention to it and adding to the conversation. I also find it bemusing, honestly, maybe because I have cool parents with a very equal marriage and have had good role models all my life, but I thought this was done,” he says.

“My guiding principal is to find jobs with that kind of electric atmosphere,” he says. But that’s not to say his entire life revolves around work. We all know he likes to rap (see: his flawless renditions of Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” and Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics”), but sadly there are no plans for further musical endeavors. “I find it very hard to take any actor’s band seriously, so I would assume other people feel the same way about it,” he says.
