Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is the subject of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, with Dan Radcliffe featuring on the cover.
Radcliffe has always been pretty fearless. At 11, when most boys are afraid of being vulnerable, he talked about how he found out that he’d been cast as the boy wizard, after months of auditions. “I was in the bath at the time,” he said then. “My dad came running in and said, ‘Guess who they want to play Harry Potter?’ and I started to cry. It was probably the best moment of my life.” In the years since, Radcliffe has proved he isn’t afraid to reveal himself. He famously appeared naked on stage in Equus, both in London’s West End and on Broadway. (There’s even a reference to it in Hallows-Part 1.
In one scene, Ron, Hermione and Harry, on the run in London, enter a café. On the wall in one corner is a poster for Equus.) Radcliffe is still taking risks. He’s currently rehearsing to star in a stage musical, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and trying to not think about saying goodbye to Harry after all these years. “It’s key for me to keep working,” he says. “Focusing on other things rather than moping around the house.”
