Interview Genios magazine (Argentina)

Interview from Genios magazine.

How did you become Harry Potter?
Dan: Since a year before HP1, producers were looking for the actor who was going to be Harry. I was 11, and, nevertheless I was quite nervous on the auditions, I got the paper.

2) Had you had experience as an actor?
Dan: I had worked on the tv production of David Copperfield from BBC and in the movie The Tailor of Panama.

How did Potter change your life?
Dan: My life has not changed a lot, however sometimes it's difficult to go out into the street. And I have to wear a baseball cap to not be recognised! Generally I consider first the amount of people that there'll be if I wanna go somewhere.

Which is your favourite character?
Dan: Harry, obviously. I have become a huge fan of himself.
Apart from him?
Dan: Sirius Black, there's something dangerous behind him and fascinating.

Where and when did you film HP5?
Dan: In February to October last year in Leavsden Studios, outside London. I used to wake up everyday at 6:30 and traveled from home. It was really early but I liked it. We worked hard and had fun.

Do get on well with all the actors?
Dan: Absolutely! My friend, most of all, is Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville.

What do you do when not working?

Dan: I love going out with friends, listening to some music and reading. Actually, and for you who are from Argentina (the reporter), I can tell you I have read A Tale's Book from Jorge Luis Borges "El Aleph". I loved all the stories but one "el zahir" (who spells in spanish!) is my favourite.

I can't believe you
Dan: I'm most interested in the language he uses.

Have you read it in Spanish?
Dan: No! I know a little of Spanish...

Dan: I chose English bands with guitars, as Mystery Jets.

Do you date someone?

Dan: No..

Is it hard for you to have a girlfriend?
Dan: Being famous does not make it easier or harder, I had a girlfriend but not anymore.
Dan: What do you know from Argentina apart from Borges?
Dan: It was a pity for me that its football team lost the World Cup last year, because I thought it was one of the best teams. I know Buenos Aires is the Capital City. I'd love to visit the country some day.

To promote the films?
Dan: No!! To visit and enjoy my holidays.

Myojo magazine (Japan)

New article and photos from the Myojo magazine in Japan via The interview was about the new upcoming Harry Potter film.
"I discussed the plan for acting with David Yates. The main objective was to get the movement of Harry's feelings by reading the book. It was very challenging work though; I had made my own character finally. It was the first time that I deeply related to the scenario.Before the scenario writer began to write, we discussed whom who relations were most important. David agreed with my opinion that the concentration of energy on the relationship between Harry and Sirius in particular is important. Because Sirius is a very important existence for Harry this time and it connects with the last important scene by firmly drawing it."

Libelle magazine interview (NL)

In de nieuwe Libelle is een interview met Daniel te vinden over Harry Potter. Hieronder een paar quotes.

"Harry Potter showed me I was good at something"
1) There comes a day Harry Potter will end, that will be sad, but Harry has an important role in my life. I will go on. I want to prove myself as an actor, but I will never forget him.
2) Im still nervous when I meet people for the first time.
3) All the money I get don’t interest me. There will be a day my mother will say: We need to talk . This is how it goes with the money. That would be horrible.
4) I was bad in almost everything from learning to sport. And then came Harry Potter. He gave me something to Focus on. Harry Potter showed me I was good at something.

Cinema Today interview (Japan)

There is a new interview from Japan's Cinema Today in promotion of Harry Potter (ハリーポッター) and the Goblet of Fire. Translation via

Q: It's been a long time since meeting Rupert and Emma since filming. Are they different now as compared with before?
A: Rupert may not be different after about 3 years at all in particular (laugh). I think that we're growing up, and changing, but we actually meet very often. Maybe we don't notice it because we're always meeting each other. We have off between filming, and we had a considerable break in time, but we're working together for about 11 months each year.

Q: I thought there were also many active scenes this time, but during
filming, wasn't it dangerous?
A: There was a case I slightly feared about two times in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" but there wasn't in this movie. But I'm always watched by very excellent staff regarding stunts who are very steady, so I think I didn't have a dangerous experience this time.

Q: What was your favorite scene in this film?
A: My favorite scene is all of the scenes that I worked with Imelda Staunton as Professor Umbridge. She's a really wonderful actress. She's a very pleasant person, and when I'm with her, I'm happy. And she's also a very intellectual person. It is really wonderful that I'm working with her, and I love the scenes with her most.

Q: (Interviewer points at Dan's t-shirt) "Tokyo-na" is written on your shirt. Did you choose that yourself?
A: Yes...What does it mean?

Q: As you know, "TOKYO" is Tokyo, and "na" is one of the Japanese alphabets.
A: Really! I bought this when I was in Australia ... I'm not sure. Yeah,
certainly. I love the shape of the shirt and I also love the character written on the shirt, so I bought it.

Q: What kind of fashion do you like?
A: I love very simple style such as T-shirts and jeans. I like that the best. However, I have many T-shirts that are so cool and I love them very much. I really have a lot of T-shirts.

Q: In London, is simple fashion popular with teens?
A: Well . . .I'm not sure. Various fashions seem popular right now. For instance, there are a lot of people who are wearing very bright colors, or are combining different type of clothes that don't match. I think this trend came from Japan because strange and wild fashions have been popular in Japan, and they are very cool. I think that Britain tries to overtake that fashion look now.

Q: Do you think really so? Although we're glad it's the Japanese.
A: I think it is perhaps so. Yes, it is absolutely so.
