Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone screencaps

I have replaced the old screencaps in the gallery. I had a rather pathetic 534 DVD caps and the size was small and this was done back in 2009. So it was time for an upgrade. I have added over 2500 Blu-Ray screencaps in over 1900px wide. Better!

NME Magazine interview and shoot

Dan is featured in this weeks NME magazine on the front cover and there is a new interview inside. There is also some lovely new photos of Dan taken by Dean Chalkley.

1 2 3

Here is an excerpt below:

Radcliffe is handsome but in quite a normal way – he has what your mum might call “a nice face” – which means he’s not obvious leading man material, and at around 5’5”, he’s a bit small to be an action star (though that never stopped Tom Cruise). Today, dressed all in black and with his hair sharply cropped as a souvenir from a recently completed role in Imperium, playing an FBI agent posing as a neo-Nazi, he should look intimidating. Yet he’s so effusively cheerful that he just looks… tidy. He’s 26 now, but clean-shaven, he could pass for much younger. He’s got a character actor’s face, which means he can do those strange lead roles your more traditional leading man couldn’t.

“I had a huge amount to prove [after Potter],” continues Radcliffe. “Proving that you can be a young actor and not be a complete fucking disaster when you grow up. That is the – quite unfair I think – image that people have of young actors. There are a huge number of child actors who grow up fine. Always with my career in film, I saw Potter as an amazing beginning to it. I’m sure I’ll never hit that kind of commercial peak again but very, very few people will.”

Daniel Radcliffe: I find it hard to watch myself in early Harry Potter films

Actor Daniel Radcliffe says he thinks he could have done with acting lessons when filming the early Harry Potter films.

The 24-year-old, who played the boy wizard in all eight of the films, tells Melvyn Bragg that he finds the early films “hard to watch” in an edition of the South Bank Show airing this Thursday.

He says that he and co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were not given acting coaching on the set of the blockbuster films.

“If we had a singing scene we had a singing teacher come in. If we had a dance scene a dance coach would come in. We never had an acting coach in all the time we were there and there were times we could have done with one. I know I could have.

“There wasn’t a lot of nuance to my performance when we were young and I find those early films very hard to watch personally. There were certain things I just didn’t know. There were certain things like how to break down a script, or even certain questions like what does a certain character want out of a certain scene.”

Radcliffe appears to be thinking of his first two films, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

He tells Bragg that he is glad to have developed his acting talents and credits the appearance of Gary Oldman as wizard Sirius Black in the third Potter film, the 2004 movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, for helping his professional development.

The two became close friends and Radcliffe reveals that he also sought out relationship advice from his onscreen godfather.

“I was going on my first date and I was doing a scene with Gary Oldman that day so I ended up being anxious about my first date… with Gary Oldman and asking advice and all that stuff,” he says.

Radcliffe also reveals that he harboured an early ambition to be a professional wrestler.

“I definitely drifted into acting to start with…I saw an interview with myself, they asked me what do you want to do when you grow up and I completely, sincerely and earnestly answer ‘I want to be a professional wrestler’, because I was very very into WWF at the time.”

He adds that despite being embarrassed by his early performances as Potter he still owes a great debt to to the Potter producers.

“I never wanted to be one of those people that turned round and had to be disparaging about what they had done in the past in order to make a career for themselves in the future.”

Daniel Radcliffe’s Next Trick Is to Make Harry Potter Disappear

Dan appears in New York Times magazine and below is some excerpts of interest:

Not long after Radcliffe moved out on his own, he started drinking. By his own description, this was not casual drinking at parties, but every-night drinking, heavy drinking, drinking to the point of making a scene and then blacking out. “I became a nuisance,” he has said. “I became the person in the group who has to be looked after.” He drank in local bars and eventually alone, because he was too embarrassed to go back to the bars where he had been so drunk on nights past. In August 2010, when he was 21, after awakening from a blackout, bruised and unable to account for the previous eight hours, he decided to stop drinking. He hadn’t talked publicly about the extent of his problem and was worried that he would rise one morning to find photos of his past exploits plastered on the front page of a tabloid. So in 2011, he decided to speak openly about his drinking.

Radcliffe’s upbringing during the Potter years was at once cloistered and uncensored. His father was on the set every day, providing an unusual amount of oversight in the strange, charmed halls of the drafty, converted aircraft hangar where the movies were shot. But all around him, especially as he became a teenager, the crew and cast were swearing, changing in front of him and regaling him with tales of boozy revels. Although he and Watson and Grint shared an intense experience and are friendly enough, they have barely seen one another since the last film. Radcliffe’s closest friends were always among the crew, people who “were either much older than me and had kids or lived outside of London,” he said. “I didn’t have that normal teenage period when you build up your friends in your area and you have a social circle.”

Radcliffe’s pleasures can veer into compulsions: he often chain-smokes cigarettes, pounds Diet Coke, recently kicked a Red Bull addiction and spends hours, into the early morning, on NFL.com, pursuing an obsession with American football he cultivated during “How to Succeed.” “I probably know every starting player’s name in the league,” he told me. “Actually, I don’t know why I’m being modest, I definitely know every starting player.” He records episodes of “Jeopardy!” when he’s in New York and watches them before he goes to sleep. A former guest on a brainy British quiz show called “QI,” he has an encyclopedic knowledge of music and trivia and a seemingly inexhaustible catalog of jokes.

Thrown into an adult world early on, Radcliffe nonetheless still clings to some adolescent habits. He subsists on a diet based largely on cheeseburgers and pizza, is the same poor sleeper he was as a child and is an inveterate slob. One friend still teases him about the time he took off a sock to mop up some soda, then put the sock back on.

001

In “Kill Your Darlings,” Radcliffe displays more range than he did in the Potter films, with a role that defies easy characterization. Radcliffe’s Ginsberg is both socially insecure and sure of his genius; he is, by turns, deeply romantic and sullen and sexual. In Venice, several interviewers asked Radcliffe if he was trying to “put a knife in the back” of Harry Potter by doing an explicit gay sex scene. But Radcliffe simply said it was a part of the story, just as being nude in “Equus” was essential. “I honestly don’t know what the big deal is,” Radcliffe, whose parents had many close gay friends when he was growing up, said in a news conference. “People have been having gay sex for as long as they’ve been having straight sex, period.”

He had five minutes after the scene [A Young Doctor’s Notebook, series 2] to take a break and quickly walked outside to smoke a cigarette; he rolls them, a habit he picked up from the Harry Potter wardrobe dresser, a father of three now in his 40s, whom Radcliffe considers one of his best friends from the days on the set. Among the wealthiest men under 30 in his country, Radcliffe, particularly when he smokes, has the pallid, slightly starved look of an artist who might live in a garret.
