The more I find out about Daniel Radcliffe as he is in real life, the more I like him. If you’ve seen Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (which, if you haven’t, YOU NEED TO GO RIGHT NOW!!!), you know that DanRad gets a little, uh, shall we say “loopy”. It’s one of the funniest bits in the film, seriously he’s hilarious! Here’s what Daniel and Emma Watson had to say about this:
“Drugged Harry,” says Emma Watson, “is closer to Dan’s real personality.”…..“If you spent like a proper amount of time with me, you would probably wonder if I was on drugs,” Radcliffe says. “I’m not. I’m just incredibly hyperactive. Manic.” At the Harry Potter premiere in London, “My God! I was just this kind of BEAST that had been UNLEASHED onto the red carpet!” As for those scenes when he’s high on potion, “I just let the more manic side of myself that I suppress for 23 hours of every day loose for a while on set, and just became a kind of uncontrollable, vaguely irritating but sort of vaguely amusing person that I, you know, keep hidden. I just let him out,“ he says, “and went MAD for a few days.”
LOVE it. I hope we see him in some kind of comedic feature soon, I think he would be brilliant.
