Post Videos: Daniel Radcliffe talks first year after Harry Potter filming, future projects

Daniel Radcliffe sat down with MTV News during promotion junkets for his upcoming supernatural thriller, The Woman in Black, earlier this month to discuss his life beyond the Harry Potter films. He commented on how he's adjusted since his first year out after completing filming of the series nearly a year ago, what possible projects he may pursue, his relationship to author J.K. Rowling now that the movies have completed, and where he hopes to see himself in five to 10-years' time. That, as well as Dan calling out his Tony Awards performance as a highlight for 2011, can be viewed and read below.




What have you learned about yourself and your work abilities?
Dan:
I think the most vital thing I've learned — and this is a thing I have to adapt and be able to find throughout my career, be it onstage or film in comedy or drama — is that the more I try and suppress my own natural oddness, the less successful I am. I have a slightly staccato way of moving and talking ... the realization hit me that I'm working so hard to try and be something else, and actually, I just have to learn to be my most natural self onstage or onscreen, however that comes across. That is one of the biggest lessons there is: Don't shy away from your own weirdness. Own your oddness.

Would you consider taking a role in a movie musical?
Dan:
Yeah, definitely. My hesitation about doing this one [How to Succeed] is that I've played parts for a long time, and I'll have spent a long time with this, and I want my career to be about getting as many different characters under my belt as I possibly can. But yeah, I would love to, provided it was the right one, because they can go wrong. They can go spectacularly wrong, so we'll see.

Looking back at Potter and going through the huge promotional push surrounding the final film, was any of that surprising in any way even though you'd been through it so many times before?
Dan:
It's always what it is. I have a slight tendency when you're doing these insane press days where you do a few interviews then the red carpet and it's just mad, I have a slight tendency to shut down and go on autopilot just to get through it and not feel completely weirded out by the whole thing. What was strange to me was, in a way I felt slightly bad because I wasn't getting upset like everyone else was.

I've seen Rupert Grint cry once, on the last day of filming, when I was also in bits, but I've never seen Rupert get emotional like he did at the premiere ... I cannot go on enough about how much I loved my time on Potter. It was the most amazing, happy time, but all good things must come to an end. We couldn't have gone on forever. As much as people wanted us to, it would have been terrible. I'm glad to have done it and gone out on such a high note and now be moving on as we all are.

Do you hope you'll continue to have a relationship with J.K. Rowling?
Radcliffe:
I hope so, yeah, I really hope so. For somebody that was indirectly and directly such a huge influence on my life, I really hope so. I don't know if she's going to write anything else about Harry, but maybe I could direct something in years to come or something; we know each other.

Looking ahead 10 years, what do you hope to be doing, best and worst case scenario?
Dan:
My worst nightmare is that in 10 years, I will be not working and not doing anything. Even if in five years time I decide to leave the film industry and go off and become an archaeologist, even if I'm doing that, that's great, fine. Best-case scenario is that in 10 years time, I'll have got a good few films under my belt, I don't know how many that would be ... suppose we did eight Potter movies in 10 [years]; double that, maybe 16? Who knows. Hopefully I'll do a few films with very different parts, very different directors, and ideally, I would have liked to direct something by then; that's the ambition. I do feel having spent so much time on a film set, I would have a very good idea of how to run a film set, how to lead that set and, I don't know, I love telling stories, so I would like that as a job.

Does [2011] feel like a big year for you? A momentous year?
Dan:
Yeah, it is. I think it has been. It’s been a great first year away from Potter. It’s been very successful. I’ve done some work I’ve been really proud of in that time, particularly on stage in How To Succeed. Just in the process of doing it and doing it and doing it, I’ve gotten so much better during the run – as is the way it should be. It’s been a great year, but I think the next one is the big one for me because The Woman In Black is coming out and hopefully I’ve got a couple of other things that I’ll be doing. The next two or three years are going to be pretty important, I think. If it’s not a breakout year, then it’s a breakaway year.

Can you pinpoint a highlight, a surreal moment, when you look back at 2011?
Dan:
Yeah, the Tony Awards. The Tony Awards, definitely. We were the first show to perform and there is just that weird moment when you’re all standing there. I haven’t been that nervous in a long time. I don’t think I was as nervous on our opening night as I was at the Tonys. I was really, really nervous. And suddenly that huge LED screen goes up and you’re all revealed like prizes on a game show, and Al Pacino is in the front row sitting next to Bobby Cannavale who is sitting next to Mark Rylance who is sitting next to all these brilliant actors. And you have to get on with it. So that was a weird, surreal, triumphant moment for me was performing on the Tonys. That’s something I will be able to tell my grandchildren about that I did.
UDPATE: MTV has released two segments of their interview with Dan Radcliffe, where the actor reveals his thoughts on Darren Criss taking over his role in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, where he plans to live after leaving New York at the end of the year, as well as his favorite bands, books and TV shows.


Darren Criss has a weird symmetry with your career. Do you think [his doing How To Succeed] is a smart choice? Did you have veto power?
Dan Radcliffe:
No, God no. I don’t have any power over those things at all, nor should I. I think it’s fantastic. I’m actually thrilled. He went to the same high school as a couple of the other guys in our show did. I’ve not met him yet, but I’m sure he’s very nice. He’s a very, very talented guy and I’m sure he’ll do a great job. I feel slightly sorry for him, in a way, just because I know that if I’d done this show for three weeks I wouldn’t have felt like I had … I needed time with it to get it right. He doesn’t have that because obviously he has to go back and do Glee. I am sure if it was up to him he’d like to have done a longer run.

Have you seen Glee?
Dan:
I’ve seen a few episodes. I actually haven’t seen him in it. I’ve seen like three or four episodes probably – and liked it. My girlfriend’s really into it.

What are you writing at the moment?
Dan Radcliffe:
I am trying to write a script, which is fun and frustrating and terrible at the moment. Hopefully it’ll be good at some point. I actually wrote a poem the other day for the first time in about eight months where I went, “Acually that’s half decent.” Everything else I’ve written this year has been crap mostly, but I wrote one the other day that I was actually pleased with.

What genre is the film you’re working on?
Dan:
Arthouse. (laughs) Beyond that, I don’t know. It’ll be a film that no one wants to see.

Any musical act you’re dying to see right now? Who are you into?
Dan:
Yellow Ostrich. I just got their album the other day and it’s fantastic. I really, really like it. And, I think they’re English, I don’t know really - my friend from England recommended them – a band called Walk the Moon are pretty cool as well. I like them. But the Yellow Ostrich album is cool. Parts of it sound like Vampire Weekend and parts of it sound like The Thermals. It’s just very cool and weird.

What are you reading right now?
Dan:
I’m reading a book called We by Yevgeny Zamyatin, which was the book, that 1984 and Brave New World were both based on – although Huxley never admitted that he had cheerfully ripped off … Orwell and Huxley – it was a huge influence on them, and Orwell quite openly said, “Yes that’s, of course, where I got the idea from.” Huxley never admitted it apparently. But it’s a great book and it’s all about the dystopian future. It’s really cool.

Any TV you’re into right now?
Dan:
The thing is, America has so much really good TV. What I’m not watching, which I hear is stunning, is Breaking Bad. This is the thing that I wish I was watching, so I could say I was watching it. Everyone just raves about it. But I’ve been watching sport mainly, and still on the History Channel. Although you know what’s interesting, I think ‘cause I mentioned the History Channel much earlier in the year when I was like, “Yeah, they only have Pawn Stars and American Pickers and a restoration thing at the moment, they aren’t really history” and now the History Channel International is doing this big campaign about how they’re putting loads of history stuff out there. I think I may have effected a change. (laughs)

Where are you going to live after you’re done with [How To Succeed]? What are you going to call home?
Dan:
My home will always be London. I love it. I miss it. If I have to live somewhere else for a year, New York is wonderful. I would like to work over here more. I’ve certainly never worked on a film in America, but I would love to do that.

You’re going to L.A.?
Dan:
Nooooooooo. I mean I would work out there, but I don’t think I could ever live anywhere but London. But I’ll definitely be spending a lot of time here [in New York].

my interpreation of the script and art house film, is they are two different projects. Dan likes to write and so he's trying his hand at writing a script for fun. The arthouse film is his next work project.
