Young+ magazine interview

Young+ magazine (for the youth in the Middle East) has published their interview online in promotion of Victor Frankenstein.

Is it true that there are more Harry Potter movies coming out? Would you ever pop up unannounced?
Not in there. Those are Harry Potter prequels, I believe. I feel that would be a very distracting thing. So I’m not popping up in there, but I’m excited to see them, especially with Eddie [Redmayne], he’s awesome. I think it will be fantastic.

Wouldn’t you take the chance if there was a slight possibility like Harrison Ford and Star Wars?
I know there have been big celebrity cameos in Star Wars, but I don’t think I’m at that stage yet. I’m sure they don’t want that, I don’t want that. These are separate films and I’m sure they want to keep it separate. I’m very excited for Eddie and I assume the crew is coming back and they were amazing. Hopefully he’ll get these questions from now on and not me (laughs), which I’ll be very happy about as well.

Has social media become important for marketing movies?
Maybe. I don’t have any social media account so probably no help from me. I guess it is, but I don’t think it’s important to make a good movie.

Was it a conscious decision not to have a social media account?

I just didn’t want it. All the people I see on Twitter, you never see, “Oh, I’m tweeting this is great.”
I always see, “Oh man, I got to do my Twitter.” It’s always like that, so I never feel like I’m missing out. It doesn’t seem like that much fun. But I don’t know, maybe I am.

Have you ever dressed up as somebody else so people wouldn’t know you were there?
I went as Spiderman last year to Comic Con (in San Diego, USA) and that was awesome. I think that was it. I didn’t put anything together this year so I feel like a bit of a let down, but it was only my second year. I was much more comfortable this year. I know what I got into was not nearly as overwhelming and intense as everybody said it would be, so yeah I was okay there.

Did you walk around the Comic Con convention this time?
Not on the floor. I didn’t think it would be a good idea. Maybe in a few years.

What do you like so much about Comic Con?
This is the place where you see studios and those big companies competing to make the best and strongest connection with their fans. It’s very cool to have studios being competitive because it means you have six thousand people getting taken to a Star Wars concert or the director Zack Snyder driving the Batmobile. There are lot of cool and original things going on and yeah, it’s a lovely atmosphere. Everyone is really chill. It´s pure magic.

And what magic did you find this time telling the story of Frankenstein that people know so much about?
It’s kind of a gothic adventure movie. I think it’s a bit gothic for a horror. It has horror elements, but yeah, it’s basically a movie about Frankenstein. It’s the retelling of Frankenstein through the eyes of his assistant, Hunchback Igor, who I play. That’s the take in it; it’s the perspective of Igor and his monster’s craziness. As the fun goes on, it becomes an adventure movie, kind of a body-comedy-adventure movie set against the backdrop of making hybrids and trying to make possible out of nothing.

There’s one scene where there’s a very cool creature; it’s actually one of my favorites. It’s a prototype for the monster we eventually make. It’s sort of the hybrid of a couple of other animals.

Is it based on the original book? Did you read the original Frankestein book growing up?
I’m not so much a fan of the book. I don’t really know the book. The film is nothing like the book…That seems like an argument that is still going on today with artificial intelligence or cloning. So that argument is still very relevant, we’re taking that from the book, but other than that, Igor, my character is not in the book, with all the Frankenstein stuff you love.

Is there a lot of violence?
It’s not like violent, violent. Most of the violence is done to me (laughs). Victor Frankenstein is very abusive to Igor and their relationship is also very loving, very full. There’s a kind of server and master relationship. James McAvoy is a very physical actor and I like being very physical as well, so I gave him permission to throw me around. You can see that in the first scene, it’s one of my favorite scenes in the movie.

Did you have any fear the first time you read the script?
There’s a bit of that. I think I’m a bit of a goner for punishment because I find myself thinking before I start a job. I’ll have a moment where I go, “Oh man, why am I stressing so much about this, why can’t I pick something easy I care about?” And then I go like, “Well, because then you wouldn’t care about it.” I think that bit of fear and that bit of stress of how I’m going to do this is what makes something good. A little bit of fear is healthy… and magic.

Empire magazine scans

Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy are featured in the November 2015 issue of Empire magazine. Below you find part from the interview plus photoshoot in promotion of Victor Frankenstein. A behind the scenes video from this photoshoot will be online 1st October. Preview here via Twitter.
How did you both feel about the idea of doing Frankenstein?
“Then when I heard Dan was involved, I thought, “It’s gonna be good”, because Dan’s work has been so interesting and of such a high quality so I got really excited.” - James McAvoy
“But when I met James… I had grown up watching Inside I’m Dancing, Atonement, The Last King of Scotland… he was somebody I always really looked up to so I think easily the first week or two it was just a lot of me being like, “Oh my god, he’s so good.” - Daniel Radcliffe 

Had you met before being cast?
“I don’t think we had. I just watched you.” - Daniel Radcliffe
“I remember there was a time when we were making X-Men: First Class in Pinewood and you came by - I think to say hi to Nick (Hoult) and I saw you there, but I didn’t want to come over because I had this weird thing, like, “Ah, man, he always gets crowded, I don’t wanna be crowding him.” I think we first met when we were rehearsing with Paul (McGuigan, director) in New York.” - James McAvoy
“Yeah, going through the script.” - Daniel Radcliffe 
“It was a really, really good week.” - James McAvoy
