“Richard [Griffiths] was by my side during two of the most important moments of my career. In August 2000, before official production had even begun on Potter, we filmed a shot outside the Dursleys’, which was my first ever shot as Harry. I was nervous and he made me feel at ease. Seven years later, we embarked on ‘Equus’ together. It was my first time doing a play but, terrified as I was, his encouragement, tutelage and humor made it a joy. In fact, any room he walked into was made twice as funny and twice as clever just by his presence.” -Daniel Radcliffe
Daniel Radcliffe talking about his old stunt double, David Holmes, who was severely injured during a stunt on the HP films
“Well she got me the job at Potter, practically, so for anyone who doesn’t know that story, I basically owe everything to Maggie Smith because I worked with her on David Copperfield and then she came on to Potter as McGonagall and said to the director, ‘You need to audition this boy.’ So I kind of owe her everything, so to Maggie I just say my fairy godmother.” — Daniel Radcliffe (on the first thing that comes to mind about Maggie)
“Daniel was so lovely to work with. I’m so glad I insisted they see him for the part.” — Maggie Smith (on being part of the Harry Potter films)
Whenever I watch this I forget it’s Daniel Radcliffe playing a bunch of other people and not a bunch of other people dressed as Daniel Radcliffe.
yeah, it really is sort of frightening how he literally becomes the other characters.
Daniel Radcliffe = talent.
You know, I’d never actually noticed this. Especially in the first gif he looks so much like the characters he’s imitating - the Fleur and Hermione Harrys are absolutely spot on. Even the way Hermione!Harry breathes is just like the actual Hermione.
