Dan Radcliffe To Potter Fans: “Now, go conquer the world!”

Jul 13, 2011

We got “Harry’s” last message to his fans!

It’s hard to pin down Daniel Radcliffe right now since he’s very busy starring on Broadway in “How to Succeed in Business” but he was able to talk to reporters briefly about what he is taking away from playing Harry Potter and what scene left his parents crying in the movie theater.

Q: You’ve said that the first film was action-packed but “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet”.

  • Dan Radcliffe: And I was right, wasn’t I?

Q: Yep.  What, in your opinion sets the two last films apart?

  • Dan: Part one is like a slow-burning drama and this one is an all-out action film with moments of intense emotional drama interspersed. I’ve said it before, but it’s a heist movie that turns into a war film. It’s pretty fantastic. I’m very pleased and I’m normally a very harsh judge of these films.

Q: What was the biggest challenge making this last one?

  • Dan: The emotional depth you have to find for Harry in this film was tricky and I think I got that to an extent, particularly toward the end. I’m never going to be completely happy with my performance but I enjoyed it as much as I could when watching it because I thought “Yeah, I’m more pleased than I thought I would be”.

Warning: Spoilers Below!

Q: Let’s talk Resurrection Stone because that scene makes the audience blubbering fools.

  • Dan: Good. My parents were too and they were wondering if anybody else would be so I’ll tell them that.

Q: What did it take to shoot that? It was amazing.

  • Dan: It was very hard. I put a lot of pressure on that scene because I’m so aware that it’s a favorite moment of so many people including myself that I was so conscious of trying to get it right that I ended up getting more frustrated with myself but I think, in the end, what ended up on screen turned out really, really well and I’m encouraged by your response. Thank you.

Q: Growing up being Harry, what is the most important thing you can take away from this whole “Potter” experience?

  • Dan: The memories of my time on the set and friendships that will last the rest of my life, that I’m so lucky to have and people I never would have met if it were not for these films and I’m taking away two pairs of Harry Potter glasses too!

Q: Since you started so young, don’t you think the films taught you a great work ethic as well?

  • Dan: Yeah. I think about this sometimes.  I think, in part you are right but my parents are real workers. My dad is Irish and mom’s Jewish so that’s working blood there so I think I would have had some vestige of it but I certainly don’t think it would have been as much a part of my identity as my work ethic is now.

It all going to end poster

Q: Now you are working hard on Broadway. How has that experience been?

  • Dan: Broadway is always so amazing and has welcomed me and I’m very, very lucky to be there.

Q: Talk to your fans; the devoted people who have been with you and grown up with you since day one. What do you want to say to them?

  • Dan: Thank you so much for your unrelenting support across the years. I hope you’ve been satisfied with the films. I’m sorry we haven’t been able to leave everything in. As I’ve said before, I think Harry Potter fans have a literary curiosity and an imagination that is not necessarily associated with fans of all the big movie franchises both past and present so I would say “Now, take that curiosity out into the world and do extraordinary things with it!”
