Post Daniel Radcliffe talks Harry Potter, How to Succeed, Woman in Black at 92Y panel

Daniel Radcliffe sat down for a chat about his work in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the Harry Potter series, The Woman in Black, his career as an actor and beyond, and a few personal tidbits earlier this evening at the 92Y Broadway Talks special. For those who were keeping tabs on Twitter, SnitchSeeker was at the event and reported on some of the highlights from Dan's chat with host Jordan Roth. The audio (albeit a bit garbled) of the interview can be heard below, and photos of Dan and Roth from the event can be found in our galleries.

• Dan admitted that he had been taking singing lessons for about three and a half years, and what got him started was trying to sing a better version of The Milky Bar song for Equus.
• Dan talked at great length about How to Succeed, and his personal aspirations for it, including hoping that his goal was, frankly, not to suck on stage. He found that he performed better on stage than screen because there were rarely any breaks from character while performing, whereas with film you could be done for the day on set and separate from the character and film.
• As mentioned in numerous interviews, Dan's a huge fan of The History Channel... the international version, which actually does broadcast actual historic documentaries, and not the reality programmes the U.S. version airs.
• On Harry Potter, the anecdote on when producer David Heyman found Dan for the first time at a London play many years back was brought up, and how he, Dan, realised he got the role of Harry pretty much for his big blue eyes, which he jokingly called his 'orphan eyes', given that he has so far played three orphans (Harry, David Copperfield, and Maps in December Boys).
• Dan admitted that as crazy as Harry Potter premieres are, he found them 'hysterically funny' as he found the recognition to be a bit strange.
• One thing Dan realised he had increasingly common with Harry as the books went on, especially the last few, was their argumentative natures, which Dan called bratty and snide. Dan jokingly wondered if JK Rowling had been deliberately noted this about him, and wrote Harry just as that.
• Dan does hope to do some behind-the-camera work in the future, as he has said many times in the past, though he'd rather prefer to direct a small, independent film, and not a huge epic fantasy like Harry Potter.
• Dan got to see a rough cut of his supernatural thriller, The Woman in Black, recently, and called it a "slow-burning Victorian Gothic film" that frightened him so much that he nearly fainted at points. He enjoyed the themes of loss in the story, as his character, Arthur Kipps, was a widower; he also argued that no one in their right mind would visit the home of The Woman in Black, but Kipps had a good enough reason to.
• Dan praised various Harry Potter costars, including of course Gary Oldman, David Thewlis whom he said is wonderful, Michael Gambon, Imelda Staunton, and especially pointed out David Bradley (Filch) and Gemma Jones (Madam Pomfrey), who had done a great deal of work on stage as well as screen.
• The topic of the Tony Awards, and Dan's obvious snub, was brought up in discussion. Dan said that everyone around him, including fans, came up to him and consoled him on the snub as though a relative had died, jokingly stating that they'd say things like 'are you OK?' about it, which he found a bit shocking. He was, however, rather pleased and humbled at even being considered in the same category as those actually nominated, as is happy for How to Succeed's eight nominations.

A few other tidbits from the chat can be found on SnitchSeeker's Twitter, including his love for New York City, what books and music he's into right now, and some of his favourite Broadway productions at the present.

He's such a nerd...I adore him. Lol.

Your flavour is milk. You're a quiet person and enjoy the peace, but you also
enjoy a bit of something new. You like the unconventional surprises that life
brings. You keep those dear to you close and adore them, as they adore you. ♥

He's always been so humble, I love that about him. I'm really excited for The Woman in Black, I think that it's going to be amazing.
