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:

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!!

I am so going to see Equus when it opens in London, well providing I can afford the tickets as the West End Theatre is very expensive.

If he keeps on acting like he does in that play or what it is, it will get the rating NC-17
