I have scanned an old issue of Shortlist magazine, February 2012. This interview was carried out during the promotion of The Woman In Black.
I have added 77 press scans of Dan from various magazines dating as far back as 2001. I hadn’t realised that I hadn’t scanned any of them so enjoy!

Dan is on the front cover of Issue 5 of the magazine and you can order it online at this link. There is 14 pages dedicated to Dan in the magazine, so worth the buy. Its priced at $25.
Issue nº5 features actor, Daniel Radcliffe captured in a series of character- driven photographs shot by photographer, Tatijana Shoan. Radcliffe opens up about his dreams for the future, how he approaches acting, where he would be today if Harry Potter never happened and the challenges he faced getting naked on stage.
Dan is featured on the cover of the October 2014 Mental Floss magazine. He is interviewed and there is some great photos of Dan. I have added an excerpt below:
Today I learned that “fadoodling” was a 17th century slang term for having sex.What’s a really good fact you learned recently?
I learned the other day that prostitutes in England used to be called “Winchester Geese,” which is so weird to me. Winchester is a nice cathedral town in the south of England and that it was ever a byword for prurience is kind of amazing.
Where did you learn that?
My friend sent me a photo of just a plaque outside an old cemetery saying “This is where prostitutes, or ‘Winchester Geese,’ used to be buried.’” It was my birthday card, which made it weirder. I also learned not long ago that earwigs have two penises, one in case the other one breaks off—which it often does, apparently, during earwig sex.
In Harry Potter, you had a lightning scar on your forehead. For Frankenstein, which is out next year, you wore hair extensions, and for this movie, you wore horns. What’s more annoying to have applied?
One hundred percent hair extensions. The lightning scar, on the first two films, we essentially painted it on, and after that we used Pros-Aide, which was like a glue [to put it on]. It was very simple. The horns were basically on a wire cage, and we hid the metal under the hair and then blended in the front. But the hair extensions took 14 hours to put in across two days and were a nightmare to live with and wash for the five months I had them. They’re supposed to take 4 to 5 hours to take out, but I think we did them in two because I was just ripping them out of my head.
Dan has done a new photo shoot and interview with the New York Magazine ‘Moves’. You can see an extract of the interview below.
Huge projects loom, including a creative take on the Frankenstein story he’s said might well be called “Not Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein,” as it stitches together pieces of tellings gone before, and focuses on a time and relationship not usually explored. “In sort of contrast to most Frankenstein movies where the monster and Victor is sort of the main relationship, this film takes place mostly prior to the creation of the monster. This focuses on the relationship between Igor and Victor, and is about two young men propelling science forward.” Not to awaken the monster that is the term “Bromance,” but the emphasis on Victor and Igor’s relationship joins a list of fascinating platonics in popular culture. He muses as to why the seemingly sudden fervor — “I think maybe that what’s interesting is that so many more films and particularly TV now seems to be incredibly character-driven. Rather than sort of focusing on spectacle or something like that, people have, I think, realized that being privy to an exciting relationship, either between two men or between a guy and a woman or two women or whatever it is, is one of the most exciting things you can see on a screen.”

The Bill: Last summer’s sold-out West End production of Martin McDonagh’s black comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan, starring Daniel Radcliffe as Billy — a disabled man in a small town on Ireland’s Aran Islands who dreams of being a Hollywood star– transferred to Broadway last month.
Star Quality: Since wrapping the eighth and final Harry Potter film in 2011, Radcliffe has costarred with Jon Hamm in a quirky BBC miniseries and played Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings. This summer he’ll star opposite Zoe Kazan in the indie romcom What If.
Stage Experience: Between stints playing boy-wizard Potter, Radcliffe turned to the stage, starring on Broadway in revivals of Equus and the 1960s musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
On learning to play someone with a disability… “I worked on the physicality for about three or four months with a voice teacher, who has a very mild form of cerebral palsy, which is what I had chosen to base Billy’s condition on. It’s definitely one of the challenges of the part, but I feel good about the place I got to. I see Billy as somebody who does not pity himself; he’s very practical. He’s an incredibly strong, dynamic character within his disability.”
On social media mixups… “There was one very funny moment where my dad spotted something somebody tweeted about having seen me rehearsing for Inishmaan with a pair of tap shoes. I actually had been rehearsing for something else which required dance, and apparently somebody was like, ‘Wait, does he tap in this production?’ I’m not sure how much Martin would have approved of my changes to his play if I had been like, ‘Hey, can I make this into a jazzy musical number?'”
On spending the summer in New York… “I love just going out and sitting down in the park along with the thousands of other people who apparently have no work to do during the day. People come up to me, but they are generally really nice. New York makes it easier, for me at least. People manage to be enthusiastic and sort of sane at the same time. And that’s lovely.”
What attracted you to that person in the first place? And why did your relationship sour?
This person, in my life, was crazy and wild. That’s what was very attractive about [this person], but ultimately, I had a moment of saying, “Actually, you are just rude and horrible to people.” That f— you attitude to the world, that this person had, is actually pretty dull. When you get to a point when you see that, it’s important to make a decision and move on from it. Because then it starts to define who you are as a person, before you can define who you want to be.
