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.
Added some photos of Dan attending the Moves Magazine summer issue party. Dan is featured on the cover and you can see an extract from the interview in the post below.
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.”

I have added the photos from the Dujour shoot that Dan did for the promotion of The Cripple Of Inishmaan.
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.

I have added to the gallery some Attitude, Sharp, and Kill Your Darlings photocall photos, check them out here.
Dan does get featured in the sexiest Empire movie poll. He came in at number 45. This is what they said.
As the star of one of the biggest franchises ever, you’d forgive Daniel Radcliffe for being at least a tiny bit of a diva. And yet he’s one of the nicest, most down-to-Earth men in show business, hard-working and apparently near egoless. Now that Potter’s behind him and he’s proven himself onstage on and with The Woman In Black, we look forward to seeing what he does next.
We suspect it’s going to be Horns, but since that isn’t out yet, we’re going to have to choose The Woman In Black because suggesting Harry Potter feels wrong.
STROKE OF CHARM
He can sing The Elements.
Out magazine have released two video clips of Dan being interviewed and photographed for the March issue of the magazine. The photos from this shoot if you haven’t already seen them can be found here. Dan talks about his gay character in Kill Your Darlings in the video.
Dan is Out’s March cover star and you can read an excerpt from the interview below and view a couple of photos in the gallery.
When John Krokidas, the director of Beat-genesis movie Kill Your Darlings, approached Daniel Radcliffe to gauge his interest in playing Allen Ginsberg, he was struck by Radcliffe’s humility. Although a marquee name whose involvement could guarantee the investment necessary to make the film, Radcliffe nevertheless insisted on a proper audition.
“I think he was nervous about whether I would want to audition or not, and so at my first meeting with him I said, ‘I want to read, I want to audition,’ because at this point in my career, I am aware that my name brings a certain kind of cachet,” recalls the actor, who is the face of Out’s upcoming March cover. “I want to know that a director wants me for me, rather than for the cachet. I can see why people are skeptical about me playing Allen Ginsberg, because I don’t look like him—although, neither does James Franco—and I’m English and middle class, and not from New Jersey, but that’s what I think is so exciting about it, because people have no idea. I’ve always known I have potential to be a good actor, and I think more than a good actor, but I’ve also at times lacked the tools and didn’t have any training. When John was first auditioning me for Ginsberg, we hadn’t even done the seventh Harry Potter yet, so I was 17 or 18, and he had nothing else to go on apart from the fact that he’d seen me in Equus.”
Today Dan has turned 23, so from the Just Dan Website we wish him all the best for today. Leave your birthday wishes in the comments. To celebrate I have scanned Youth Attitude Magazine that Dan featured in March 2012.
The magazine BULLETT is giving away a signed copy by Dan for the 15000 fan to ‘like’ Bullett magazine on Facebook. Good Luck!
