Daniel Radcliffe walked the black carpet at Alice Tully Hall on Monday November 16th for the New York City premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. The actor had a chance to talk about how he felt working on the film franchise under so many varied directors:
“Yeah, I think it was great to be honest with you, because I remember when Chris told me he was leaving on #2, I was very upset and I thought, “Oh no, that’s a terrible thing.” But actually, it proved the best thing for the series because it opened it up to different creative ideas and different people came on board. I think the fact that Alfonso (Cuaron) came along to the film was not just for him, but really, really smart from our producers, particularly David Heyman, who was very instrumental in that. (Alfonso) had just directed “Y Tu Mama Tambien” and for such a mainstream movie franchise, it gives you a bit of weight with the critics, to have somebody who’s had such an indie (hit) suddenly working on the film. (laughs) So I think that made people see us in a slightly different light, and I think the fact that David Yates got the job on #5 was fantastic because it shows that we’re not afraid of taking risks, because a lot of people saw it as a risk.”
Daniel is getting ready for his Broadway show How to Succeed in Business (Without Really Trying) to open in February 2011.
