You may know that a biography has recently been published on Dan aptly entitled: Daniel Radcliffe: The Biography. John Blake Publishing have kindly sent me the book to review for the site, which I have finally got around to reading and reviewing. We also have a book to give away in a competition, so stay tuned on how you can win that in the next coming days.
As you guys can see I have a new layout on the main site and in the gallery, so enjoy those. If you notice any errors please let me know by contacting me. Just so you Dan fans know the site recently set up a Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter page. I will be using the social media to keep you guys, the fans up to date with Dan news and any updates we do on the site. So please sign up!
I met Dan back in October of this year at the London MCM Comic Con and I have written it up for the site. I have also added photos that were taken of me with Dan, which had not previously been on the site for you guys to view and you can find out why I was reluctant to do so here.
On Tuesday evening, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe took to Reddit to connect with fans in the internet-honoured way: an Ask Me Anything (AMA) webchat. The 25-year-old actor was polite and funny, but he also gave away loads of information about growing up on a film set and being mistaken for Elijah Wood.
Here is what we learned:
1. Radcliffe would like to work with Jennifer Lawrence
When asked who he would like to work with, Radcliffe said: “George Clooney… Jennifer Lawrence… I just think they’d be really cool, Paul Rudd, I met him and was like “You’re awesome!” I just want to work with people you can get on with, and you have a good rapport with, and those are definitely some of them.”
Perhaps Katniss Everdeen and Harry Potter could exist in a realm outside fan fiction after all. Radcliffe also said he would like to work with filmmakers including Coen brothers, Wes Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson and Christopher Nolan.
2. Russell Brand is his new best friend
As part of a conversation about what he enjoys watching on YouTube, Radcliffe revealed: “Normally I immediately distrust actors as soon as they are talking about politics, because I think it’s quite self-serving, but [Brand]’s very sincere, and I really got on with him when I met him.”
3. Alan Rickman was a bit like a real-life Severus Snape…
…as Radcliffe’s intimidating but ultimately kind mentor – Just without the fake allegiance to the Dark Arts. Radcliffe posted: “The first few years I was genuinely quite intimidated by Alan […] but as I grew up, I realised he was one of the kindest and most supportive members of that cast to me.
“Alan has cut short holidays to come and see me in plays, and take me out for dinner afterwards to talk to me about stuff, I think when he realised how serious I was about wanting to be an actor, and he knew what a particular world the Potter set was to grow up in – he just really wanted to help us all and has been very helpful to me, certainly.”
…albeit a practical-joking version of Snape
Writing about pranks pulled on set, Radcliffe disclosed that in the third Harry Potter film: “There’s a shot of all the kids sleeping in the Great Hall, and the camera starts very wide, and comes in so that it’s an inch from my face, a very long developing set. Alan Rickman decided he would plant one of those fart machines in my sleeping bag, and they waited until the camera had come in for this huge DRAMATIC developing shot, and then unleashed this tremendous noise in the great hall.
I immediately thought: ‘This is one of the other kids f—ing around, and we were going to get in trouble.’
But as it turns out, it was one of the members of Britain’s acting royalty.”

The 25-year-old actor was lucky to dodge death after consuming a cup of water which contained the chemical additive – which had been added to the water to ensure it wouldn’t freeze – while shooting the movie in Canada, but he didn’t realize the antifreeze had caused his illness until weeks afterwards.
He said: “It is very cold in Canada and as a solution to that, because they don’t want the water to freeze in the pipes in the trailers overnight, they put antifreeze in it.
“So it’s all non-potable water that comes out the tap. I did not know that, so I drank a full cup of non-potable water … so I guess like half-antifreeze or whatever it would have been.
“I didn’t realize, and then I got horrendously ill and didn’t know why I had become so ill, and a couple of weeks later I went to drink a glass of water in hair and makeup and they were like, ‘What are you doing? Don’t do that, that’s crazy you can’t drink that water!’ “
After realizing the additive was the cause of Daniel’s near-death experience, he raced back to his trailer on the set to discover it hadn’t been fitted with signs telling him not to drink the water.
Speaking on chat show ‘Conan’, he added: “I just had never seen the signs. I went back and checked my trailer and there weren’t signs in it that said, ‘Don’t drink this water,’ but it was just, yeah, it was an accident.”
Lionsgate has announced that both Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan will be officially part of the Now You See Me 2 cast, playing characters named Walter and Lula, respectively. The studio is remaining mum on just what role these characters will play in the story, but they are also joined by series newcomer Jay Chou.
Absent from Lionsgate’s announcement is Isla Fisher, who played horsewoman Henley Reeves in the first film.
The sequel’s plot will still revolve around the Four (now Three?) Horsemen, one year after the first film. The group’s services are enlisted by an enemy who asks them to partake in one of the Horsemen’s most dangerous heists yet—presumably until Now You See Three-D brings the heist action into a new dimension.
Jon M. Chu is directing the film, while Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Michael Caine, and Dave Franco are all set to return. Now You See Me 2 is set to release on June 10, 2016.
