Reddiej from SnitchSeeker sat in on Daniel Radcliffe's interview at the New York TimesTalk, who discusses various topics ranging from "Harry Potter" to his current theater production Equus, as well as how he is adapting to living in New York City:
- He says that doing theatre work legitimises an actor more because of all the work put into it, and that a lot of training goes into it.
- He prepared for 18 months for Equus, though in the first two months was worried that he wasn't going to be able to get the entire performance down (afraid he was going to be "awful"); said that with the help of director Thea Sharrock and his costars, if he messed up, he "could not be messing up with better people."
- He talks about how everyone perceived the play before it was even released, calling it pornographic, but that it's only the last seven minutes of the play where the nudity and blinding took place; by the time the play was released there was a general talk about how good the play was in itself, and there was less of a focus on the nudity.
- Dan said that of the Half-Blood Prince move from November 2008 to July 2009, he was told about it 24 hours before the rest of the world, and begs everyone not to blame him for the move.
- About Half-Blood Prince Dan says that the parts with Dumbledore and Voldemort are the darkest, while the scenes with Ron are the funniest yet; he also mentions that Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown) was really great to work with.
- Dan talked about a particular incident on the Half-Blood Prince set, where Rupert had his first kiss with Jessie, and Dan was in the background of the scene laughing and trying to get Rupert to break out from character and laugh as well.
- Dan addressed how Emma Watson was hesitant about signing up for the final films, and her reason for doing so was not because she did not want to, but because of her education and the need to evaluate what her options were, especially since the last Harry Potter films would require another three years of their lives. Emma chose not to rush into the decision, but her reason was not because she did not want to.
