Title: "Equus"
Post by: Blue Star on July 31, 2006, 07:26:18 pm

I found this hilarious... of course I'm not a Daniel Radcliffe fan in the least. ;)



[quote]Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is set to ditch his glasses as well as his clothes.

The 17-year-old actor, who is now a multimillionaire thanks to the Harry Potter films, will make his West End debut in the controversial play Equus, The Times says.

Radcliffe, who is currently filming Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix, will play Alan Strang, a psychologically disturbed youth who is interviewed by a psychiatrist after he blinds six horses with a metal spike in Peter Shaffer's controversial drama in London next year.

But the role would require Radcliffe to simulate sexual ecstasy while riding naked.

This is a departure for Radcliffe, whose career has been dominated by his part as JK Rowling's teenage wizard. He recently finished filming December Boys, in which he plays one of four orphans hoping to be adopted

*falls off chair laughing* I would give anything to see that. And considering that he really can't act very well (in my opinion), it would make it all the more hilarious.

Thanks for the article ;D

Simulate sexual ecstasy? He has enough trouble 'simulating' mild happiness. :P (In my opinion, of course)

And that sounds like such a weird play.

WOW :o
Um...well This is interesting news! I admire him for doing this. He must really have a passion for the project. I always admire screen actors who cross over to stage. I love theatre. Daniel is growing up now and although he will always be "Harry Potter" to us, as an actor he needs to spread his wings beyond Hogwarts. You know not everyone agrees with the roles an actor/actress may take but it's part of their maturing.

Peace

Post by: Cristiel on August 15, 2006, 01:58:40 pm

Am I the only one who is actually proud of Daniel for making such a choice? Come on, he's 17 years old, I'm sure he doesn't want to be Harry Potter for the rest of his life. It's already going to be very difficult for him to find adult roles. Harry is the only role we've seen Daniel in. It's about time he shows that he can do other things as well. If he can pull this off, he will get a lot of respect and recognition, if he doesn't... well than I'm afraid it'll be "bye, bye Daniel".

Title: Re:Harry Potter to be Naked
Post by: Caz on August 15, 2006, 04:44:32 pm

I admit I had a giggle at the sexual ecstasy thing, but who knows, he may just be able to pull it off, and if he does, he'll have a great career in front of him. :)

Post by: magicdancer on August 19, 2006, 12:01:03 am

I receive newsletters from Daniel's website. There's more here about Equus...and a lot of other things he's doing.



August 2006 All the latest information!

Exclusive:
Daniel Radcliffe to play Alan Strang in Equus

After much speculation in the media and online, DanRadcliffe.com was delighted to exclusively announce recently that Dan will be involved in an upcoming production of Equus, which will be playing on the West End during early 2007. After originally turning down the role- due to timing constraints- Jenna was finally able to confirm that Dan will be playing the role of Alan Strang in the production.

Dan sent this message to Jenna, to pass on to his fans:

"I'm really excited to be part of this production and thrilled to be working with Richard Griffiths again. This is obviously a huge departure for me as an actor, but Equus is such an amazing play that this really was an opportunity not to be missed.

Rehearsal starts in January and I am very much looking forward to working with Thea Sharock who is an incredibly talented director. I only hope I do the role justice."

A little about the play... (courtesy of Jenna)

Peter Shaffer's Equus first premiered in 1973 in London, England and won a multitude of awards. Equus focuses on the relationship between seventeen-year-old Alan Strang (Radcliffe), who has blinded six horses with a spike, and Martin Dysart (Griffiths), a middle-aged psychiatrist who tries to figure out what drove Strang to commit the crime.

Shaffer based the plot on an allegedly true story told by a friend about a young man who blinded a stable of horses.

The play itself is quite complex, interwoven with symbolism, underlying truth and meaning, passion and madness. It is not suitable for a younger crowd.

Richard Griffiths (Uncle Vernon in the HP series) will be playing the part of the psychiatrist, Martin Dysart. Thea Sharock will be directing the production with rehearsals beginning in January 2007.

All speculation about the possible "nudity" involved in some of the scenes is unconfirmed at this stage. There have been various renditions of this production without nudity, so everyone should refrain from speculating until a decision is made by the director.

It is highly possible that the production will not feature any nudity. This is a production of great emotional and psychological magnitude, it's not about nudity (and contrary to uneducated reports, the entire role is not in the nude!!!!). There are of course graphic sequences within the plot, but again, remember, it is not real - it will be acted.

Tickets for this production are NOT available as the theatre has not yet been selected. Once a theatre has been selected we will announce it on the site. The play is set to open some time in Spring 2007, perhaps with previews as soon as mid-February, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

We wish Dan every success in this new and exciting stage of his acting career!!



New Interview with Dan

Daniel Radcliffe was recently interviewed by the Herald Sun on the set of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix; during the interview, Dan discussed various topics of interest, including the ending of the Harry Potter book series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, his much talked about role in the upcoming play Equus, and the recently completed movie December Boys.
Here are some highlights from the interview:

On the end of the Harry Potter series and whether he's spoken with author J.K. Rowling about it:

Dan: "I've had talks with her, but not about that. I don't know anything that's going to happen in the seventh film. I hope it will be very, very good I'll go with whatever. I think it will be quite exciting really. It may be the only way Voldemort could be killed is if Harry dies as well because there is that very strong connection between them."

On if he will participate in the Half-Blood Prince movie:

Dan: "I don't know. But the sixth book is fantastic and if the script is good and does it justice, then it would be foolish to turn it down."

About about his West End debut in Equus next year and appearing naked on stage:

Dan: "All the other actors who have ever played the part have done that, so for me not to do it wouldn't really be playing the part. It would be a watered down version. It wouldn't be the same. I'll be incredibly nervous, but I think 'It's in the script; it's got to be done.' I'm terrified, but excited."

Dan also stated towards the end of the interview that everyone will have to wait to hear his Australian accent in December Boys when the movie is released and that he enjoyed working in a different country with a new crew.

A scan of the article is available here, courtesy of MuggleNet:

Herald Sun Interview (Australia, 13 Aug 2006)




New Pics of Dan on OOTP Set
Thanks to Veritaserum reader Kaye-Louise Harvey, we recently received some new pictures of Dan filming a scene from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

The pictures show Dan and another actor, thought to be Harry Melling who plays Dudley Dursley, running along a path near their Privet Drive home, presumably for a scene from the first chapter of OOTP.

You can view some of the pictures in our HPOOTP Behind The Scenes Gallery.

If you would like to view more of the pics, then please head over to Veritaserum's galleries.



Daniel participates in the first Peterborough Children's Film Awards
There were more than 1,000 primary school pupils, teachers, parents and guests who attended a special ceremony at Peterborough's Broadway Theatre. A total of 208 short films were entered into the competition and awards were made in 10 different categories.

Daniel Radcliffe was among those who presented awards during the ceremony, only he announced the winner of the Mystery and Adventure category via pre-recorded video.

You can listen to his presentation of the award by clicking on THIS LINK. You will need to click on "The nominations are (part 2)" link and then scroll down to the bottom of that page.




Teresa talks movies, December Boys & killer fans
ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA - Teresa Palmer was interviewed by the Sunday Mail on August 13 about some of her soon-to-be-released projects. She discussed the kissing scene with Daniel Radcliffe in the upcoming production of December Boys, as well as the fans' response to her character's role.

Miss Palmer stated:

"When I first got December Boys I thought: 'This is fun, I'll just Google my name to see what people have to say about me', thinking it would be all nice things. Then I read this terrible thing about a death threat I was going to get, like 'Stay away from my Dan'.

I laugh about it now but I was speaking to Daniel's dad while we were shooting and I was telling him about all the horrific things they were saying about me and he just said: 'Stop right now, never go on the internet again because it will just kill you'."

Yes, it is true the 20-year-old actress gave Daniel his first on-screen kiss, but this is a film after all. Screen kisses are quite methodical and can be completely nerve-racking. It's not a romantic kiss by any stretch of the imagination. Hopefully those "fans" will stop focusing on the "romantic mechanics" behind the production and instead focus on the endearing story about to hit theaters in the next few months.

Check out a copy of the scan sent in to us: Sunday Mail Scan.

Thanks very much to DanRadcliffe.com reader Jess for sending that in!



HBP Film Release Date
While Order of the Phoenix isn't even "in the can" yet, speculation has already begun over the possible release date of the sixth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

MuggleNet reports that Warner Bros. has confirmed a release date of 21st November 2008 for HBP, following a posting made by Box Office Mojo. They also say that Steve Kloves will return to write the screenplay.

We should note at this point that NO announcements have been made regarding the director or any of the cast, and are not expected to be made for quite some time yet!

As soon as we receive any new information regarding HBP, it will be posted on the website!!

When I first saw this thread, I thought Daniel Radcliffe was going to be naked in the next HP film. I was thinking wow, Rowling really wanted that boy to grow up, didn't she!

I thought it was really funny in when the article said there was a rumor that Harry Potter's new role would be in the nude for the ENTIRE play. Now that would draw attention away from his past as a boy wizard!

Yes I mean I've read Equus and from what I can rememer there are only 1 or 2 brief nude scenes, hardly the whole play. So if they did have Daniel naked for the whole thing it would hardly be true to the original text, LOL.

There are many actores who want to get away from the one role they've been playing for a long time.
For example, Elijah Wood once said he doesn't want to be a 'hobbit' forever :)

Post by: Laura on October 02, 2006, 11:41:43 am

I don't know what the big fuss was about in the earlier part of the thread. It doesn't sound that weird or disgusting. I'm not a fan of the guy but I'm pleased to hear he's doing theatre. I love the theatre myself and realise it's such a difficult but rewarding job to do.

The play sounds quite unusual, why would someone blind some horses? But I guess that'll be revealed in the show.

And I doubt you'll be getting any photos, unless they're for the press. Your not usually allowed to take photos in theatres in the UK, and sometimes not even allowed to take in cameras/phones which take photos in to the theatre at all, although different shows have different restrictions.

Title: Re:Harry Potter to be Naked
Post by: jubeth on October 02, 2006, 05:46:19 pm

Well I have read Equus so I know why the character blinds horses, to be honest although I have joined in the fun with the 'naked' stuff the play is really quite disturbing and very dark, I read it when I was 14 because my older sister gave me her copy. It disturbed me greatly. It is a challenging role for Daniel, recquiring very good acting, hopefully he can pull it off and it is good to see him doing something so different from Harry Potter.

Title: Re:Harry Potter to be Naked
Post by: delusional on October 02, 2006, 07:18:18 pm

I completely agree with ElleJay, it really is good to seem him doing some theatre. I have heard so much lovely stuff about it and I hope to see a show sometime :)

Title: Daniel Radcliffe's Stage Play.
Post by: scroll on January 31, 2007, 08:40:07 am

I just seen on the news this morning the crontroversy of Danielle Radcliff's new stage play where he appears naked. They said he spent 7 hours a day weight training to get buffed for the play he is in. They showed pictures of him topless and man he is very buffed. I think Lij :-* has compotition now ;D.

Anyway there is controversy over him being naked on stage. In my opinion the HP movies and books are going to be ending soon. In fact they are presently filming for the last movie (the last book) right now. My daughter told me. DR doesn't want to be typecasted as HP all his life. Like Leonard Nemoy as Spok or Adam West as Batman or William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk. DR is trying to seperate himself into other things since he is growing up and HP will be ending he is just spreading his wings.

I don't see anything wrong with him naked on the stage except for he is to young to be that bare in front of people like that. Shirtless or even down to his underware but to be totaly nude on stage at his age is not right. But besides that it I have now problem with it.

Post by: sorceress1986 on January 31, 2007, 12:44:08 pm

My mother and I were just talking baout it last night, some parents are angry about it.

I say, let him do it. For one thing, he's trying to head off at the pass having harry follow him for the rest of his life. No harm in that. Second, he is an actor playing Harry Potter, he isn't actually Harry Potter. He is going to play other roles.

And I mentioned if the parents upset are American, what would they know about Equus anyway? These types of parents that protest stuff like this are the ones who let their kids play Grand Theft Auto all day, and now are complaining about nudity overall invading their children's lives.

Lastly, for some of us, it is not a bad thing at all. I wish I lived in England about now!

Daniel is 17, not 7. Some teenagers (not kids :P ) have lost their virginity by the time they reach his age FCS. He is becoming a man, believe it or not (*gasp* Oh the horror! *sarcasm* ). If he is comfortable doing it, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Far from pedophelia. :P

And to boot, the pics look very yummy. 8)

It was on the news over here last night as well. I don't see anything wrong with him being in a play like that, if he is comfortable doing that. If he doesn't have a problem, why should I? If he was younger than 16, I'd have my doubts but he's almost an adult now. And I'm pretty impressed by his body.. ;) Plus, if you think about it, Elijah had a sex scene in The Ice Storm when he was 16.

Title: Re:Danielle Radcliff's Stage Play.
Post by: Raiwen on February 01, 2007, 10:29:35 am

Meh. If he's comfortable with doing it then there's no problem. He seems mature enough for it. If he was 18 I doubt many people would have a problem with it, and a year isn't going to make that much of a difference. I don't think it'll do a huge amount for his career, he still needs to prove himself as an actor rather than just do the most un-Potter thing he can. Distancing himself from the part is a start though.

I think he's taking a good step in his career doing this. I think that's a really good move. But, I don't think he'll be forgotten as Harry, either.
But, I'm glad he's trying out different roles. Nude or not. Besides, he looks good.. ;D

Personally I won't say that I don't think that he's looking good at the moment but I'm not sure if total nakedness is really necessary. I prefer men with their clothes on to be honest, or at the most shirtless- but I think I'm in the minority on this one.

I think there is a trailer type ad for Equus at Dan's official website, but I can't tell for sure because I have dial-up and it won't play for me. You can check it out at the site if you're interested.

I read that they will not have any real horses in the production.

The character of Alan Strang in the story is 17 years old, so Dan's just the right age to be playing this part.

I figure that if Dan's mature enough to take on a role like that, then he should be left alone. Its his decision. And its not like hes still 12 or anything.

Besides, the play calls for nudity. He's just being an artiste and making sacrifices for his art ;)

I heard that they had a male ballet dancer playing the horse. And, yeah, I think he looks scarily like Elijah.

Post by: HobbitFancier on February 03, 2007, 08:25:35 pm

I saw these pictures a few days ago (linked from MuggleNet, of course... haha). I'm actually very impressed with his decision to take on this role. He may only be 17, but he's a very wise 17. I think it's definitely the right move for him. Doing something like this is going to wake up those out there who still can only see him as Harry Potter.

I remember reading about the concept when he was first cast in the role, and I was a little bit unsure. But after seeing these pictures.... well, heh, let's just say I'm not exactly unsure anymore. ;) I feel almost dirty admitting that he looks absolutely delicious. Hahaha.

The nudity thing... yeah, it's kind of extreme. But no one is going to be forced to see the play. Therefore, I don't see what the problem is. Dan is a big boy now, and if this is what he wants to do, more props to him. I personally could never go naked on a stage. Then again, he is only acting; it's just a role. I have a lot of respect for him for taking such a gamble, and I really hope it pays off positively for him.

I couldn't agree with you more, Flummoxed. I think you've stated this perfectly.

Here's an article and a couple more pics I haven't seen before.


New Dan article in This is London

This is London has published a new interview with Dan Radcliffe, in which he discusses his upcoming role in Equus. In the wake of the new promotional images being splashed across the media, Dan talks about his developing acting skills, the demands of stage performances, and explains why he is performing scenes in the play nude.

"We've done the scene a couple of times in rehearsal. I had no particular qualms. There's nothing that would stop me getting my kit off if that's what the work demands. The key to serious acting is to lose your inhibitions, to become free and fearless."


Looks like the workouts are paying off....

I have to say that I really admire Daniel for taking up such a challenge. And I agree with what Flummoxed said, it is the prefect way for him to get away from his Harry Potter image. If Dan wants to get away from that image, he needs to do roles that are as far away from Harry as possible. If he doesn't, he can probably say goodbye to his acting career.

I also don't see what's wrong with nude scenes. As long as the story requires them, that is. I think Daniel is mature and old enough to make his own decisions and we shouldn't judge him or interfere. Only Daniel has the right to decide what's good for him and we should respect his decisions. And I'm sure that the people behind the scenes are aware of the fact that he's only 17.

He's obviously trying to break new ground for himself. He's growing up and he wants that to be known.

"Radcliffe Nervous About Baring All On Broadway
By Michelle Nichols

REUTERS - Wed Sep 5, 6:36 PM EDT

British actor Daniel Radcliffe hopes to debut on Broadway next year in a reprise of his London role in "Equus," a performance where he shed not only his clothes but the mantle of Harry Potter.

Radcliffe won rave reviews for his performance as a tortured teenager during an 8-week run of Peter Shaffer's grueling psychological thriller in London earlier this year, but said the prospect of acting in New York was "terrifying."

"It will be amazing, but I will be terrified because I was talking to Richard Griffiths about playing New York and he said the most stupid thing you can do is underestimate New York audiences," said Radcliffe, 18, in an interview with Reuters.

Griffiths, who appeared with Radcliffe in "Equus" in London and played the role of Uncle Vernon in the Harry Potter movies, won a Tony Award in New York in 2006 for his role in "The History Boys."

While promoting his latest movie, "December Boys," in New York, Radcliffe -- best known for bringing to life author J.K. Rowling's boy wizard Harry Potter -- said "Equus" could open late next year in New York.

"I would be very nervous because I think that (the audiences are) even more discerning than in London," he said. "But I know we have a good show, it was a good show when we did it in London and hopefully if we do it again it will still be that good. It has to be better."

Media hype over Radcliffe's nude scene in the play sparked more than $4 million in advance ticket sales in London.

"Equus" was first produced in London in 1973 to critical acclaim and won a Tony Award for best play in 1975 during a long run on Broadway. It was adapted by Shaffer for a 1977 film starring Richard Burton and Peter Firth, which received three Oscar nominations in 1978.

"December Boys," Radcliffe's first major role outside the Harry Potter films, opens in the United States, Britain and Australia this month. The movie tells the tale of four orphans growing up at a Catholic convent in outback Australia.

Radcliffe said he will begin working on "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" -- the sixth movie in the seven part series -- this month and that the project would likely take a minimum of eight or nine months."

Post by: Elijahs_Sweetheart on September 20, 2007, 01:33:33 pm

Well I was in the audience of Equus the day before his last show and it was absalutly amazing! Like a few of my friends I went expecting to be able to see a little of Harry in his performance but I saw NONE. I was insanley impressed with his performance and he was very grown up about the nudity - it WAS story based and not just there for the hell of it. (not to mention it happened for a short scene and not the whole of the play, as some of the media made out) The play itself is a brilliantly written one which leaves you somehome changed for the better after watching it.
I'll be honest, when the news first arrived I, like most, was quite shocked about his choice of doing it. I was worried more than anything that he would branch off with the hopes of casting off his young persona and "grow up too fast" within the media, which I think ruiens most actors. Why fight what you are? BUT after seeing his show - I am left with no doubt at all that not only was it a brave step to make but a bloody good step also as he got a standing ovation at the show I went to and millions of people got the chance to see what he was capable of acting-wise which is a whole lot more than most have given him credit for. I say good for him! :)

I was in April in London to see Dan in 'Equus'. It was soooo brilliant! The play was so intensive and also disturbing. Dan played very excellent. His nudeness was not important for me. I saw not Dan but rather his charakter Alan Strang.
