Cinema magazine interview (Japan)

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

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.
