Yasmin Kassim talks working with Dan

Australian actress Yasmin Kassim works with Dan in his latest film ‘Jungle’. She briefly mentions what it was like working with Dan in an interview with Marie Claire magazine. I have extracts below:

In your new film Jungle, you star along Daniel Radcliffe, which is pretty incredible, what was he like to work with?

Daniel was so amazing to work with. We really connected, I feel and we got on really, really well. Just before we started shooting our first scene, I only spoke to him in the language that I speak in the movie – I didn’t really speak to him in English – because I wanted to keep that kind of energy there, and then when we shot our first scene together there was just this really magical air on set, there was a real shift and we knew that we were going to work well together after that.

Did you watch Harry Potter growing up, were you star struck at all?

You know what’s so weird, I was nervous, I was trying not to syke myself out because I thought if I think about this too much, it’s not going to serve me, I just need to think about the work and my job and what I need to bring to the table. And then when I met him, he was in an American accent, because he had to transfer into the Israeli accent for work, and I think that helped me not click that he was Harry Potter. Even though we would chat about our lives, we both were very much in the energy of our characters, so it wasn’t until the wrap party where he had an English accent and I didn’t have all my prosthetics on my face that we were both like, ‘oh my gosh, hi, this is weird, nice to meet you properly.’

I grew up watching Harry Potter and I can’t imagine what it would be like meeting either him or someone else from the films, like Emma Watson

Well obviously, it’s our generation, who doesn’t know who Harry Potter is? Honestly, from an acting perspective, the choices he’s made since that franchise, I just really admire him as an actor and not once during the shoot did I think, ‘oh my god, Hogwarts.’ Actually you know what, there was one time where we were talking about his family and he was talking about his missing school and I asked if his family travelled for work. He was like ‘no, I was shooting the movies’, and I was like ‘oh, that’s right!’

You can read the full interview with Yasmin on the Australian Marie Claire website.

Dan comes to the aid of tourist attacked by an armed moped robber

As I’ve already reported on our social media sites, last week Dan came to the aid of a tourist in London. The incident took place in Kings Road, Chelsea and the victim was slashed in the face by an armed moped Robber. The victim is believed to have had their Louis Vuitton bag stolen.

David Videcette told the Standard he noticed the men behaving suspiciously and began following them, intervening in the attack by shunting the moped with his car after seeing them pull out a knife.

Returning to the scene, he found Radcliffe looking after the victim, who was a tourist in the UK on holiday.

“It was a bit of a surreal moment,” Videcette said. “I said: ‘You’re Daniel Radcliffe’ and he replied: ‘I am.’

“He was a really nice bloke, a lot of stars wouldn’t have stopped to help. The victim was very, very shaken up.”

A spokesman for Dan has confirmed that Dan was present at the scene.

Dan to star in ‘Jungle’

Dan is set to star in a new thriller entitled ‘Jungle’. He has confirmed the news himself on his official Google+ account. Read what he had to say below:

I’m incredibly excited and honoured to have a role in furthering people’s awareness of what happened to Yossi Ghinsberg, Kevin Gale and Markus Stamm. Their story is a truly remarkable one that sheds light on both harrowing and hopeful aspects of human nature. It should be a very intense and physical shoot (obviously we wouldn’t be doing our jobs if it wasn’t) and I can’t wait to start work on it. -Dan

2016 Sundance Film Festival

Swiss Army Man is one of the films lined up for viewing at this year’s big film festival. Here is a short synopsis from Indiewire. Written by Eric Kohn.

This U.S. competition entry stars Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe in a drama featuring a man who finds a dead body in the wilderness and forms a strange bond with it. With name actors and the seemingly familiar formula of the survivalist drama, this one might sound familiar. But there’s more going on here. Writer-directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan make their feature-length debut here, but have steadily developed a following in the music video world for several years. Their 2010 video for The Hundred and The Hands infamously features vomiting fireworks and other disorienting developments in one girl’s depraved night; their short film, “Interesting Ball,” focuses on the unlikely exploits of a bouncing red ball that spends the day at the beach.

In essence, they’ve already crafted a brand as unorthodox storytellers, and “Swiss Army Man” is poised to continue that trend. Sales agents are reportedly keeping the film on wraps while generating buzz, but Cooper described the filmmakers as “visionaries who take no prisoners,” adding that “it’s a really wild film that I hope creates both confusion and excitement.” —EK

Here is an official picture from the film that has been released featuring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe.

Sorry to be so slow with news lately. I do tend to post things on twitter faster though like this photo of Dan on the set of Imperium. He has shaved his hair off for the role and I have to say it really does suit him.
