The cover and interview.

The Harry Potter films have made you a star. Can you tell us about both the positive and negative parts?

I’ve never considered myself a celebrity. Usually, people who do feel that way aren’t very nice. I mean, I know I am a movie star, but what you never have to forget is that you are just an actor.

There’s a lot written about child actors that never got used to their adult lives. How has it been for you?
That never happened to me. I will keep doing what I like, either an actor or whatever I like.

Harry Potter is going to be part of Hollywood history as one of the biggest franchises of all time. What would you like the people to remember about them?
I hope they remember the bond between Harry and both of his friends. Friendship is very important, even more if you were unfortunate and you grew up without parents, like Harry. His friends were his family, and for many kids who are in similar situations in the real world, he’s kind of a role model.

People admire you and some think of you as a hero. Who are your heroes?
My heroes are actors. I like Joseph and Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law… I love movies and I’m like an obsessive fan. As a hero- don’t make fun of me but, I love Bart Simpson! He’s my all time hero, definitely.

Is it true the first time Rowling met you she said it was like finding his lost son?
That’s true. You can’t receive a better compliment, can you? She’s very nice. The first time we talked on the phone she said she wanted to adopt me, which was a great thing. I just handed the phone to David Heyman (producer), I was very embarrassed. She’s a great person.

How much are you like Harry?
I think I’m quite different, though there are some things in which we are alike. Both of us are very reserved in terms of how much we show our feelings. We both value friendship immensely, and we shared the curiosity for things.

You were fan of the books. Do you ever imagined yourself playing this wizard?
I think every time you read a book you always imagined yourself as one of the characters, but it never happened with this books. I never imagined myself in this role.

Do you like writing?
Someone must have told you about that. Yes, I like to write drama and comedy scripts.

If you could remake an old movie, what would it be?
Henry Fonda’s 12 angry men, because that’s my favorite one.

Tell me about your friends.
They are good. I’m very lucky. Many of them come visit me when I’m not working, or on the weekends. If I’m on location, we e-mail each other.

Are you happy with how your life changed since 10 years ago?
Well, I think my life has change sparingly. I mean, people recognize me in the streets. That’s why I have fun with people’s enthusiasm about the saga, and I like to listen to them. But, overall, I am a very normal person.

Do you read what some blogs write about you? Does it annoy you?
I don’t read that. I follow my parents advice: “Just enjoy what you do.” That’s enough for me.

What are your favorite hobbies?
I like the music very much, and I want to play the drums. I like to write some lyrics. I like punk bands, their attitude and sound. The Damned, The Clash, the Undertones, etc… and I follow soccer. I go to the matches with my dad.

American Libraries READ campaign interview

Interview with Daniel about the READ campaign.

How did the READ poster photo shoot go? Librarians everywhere have been clamoring for Harry Potter posters since 2001
I think it’s good we waited; my interview answers at age 11 wouldn’t have been as interesting. We shot a lot of other things at the same time, but this one was simple and only took about 15 minutes.

In your poster, you are holding Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita. That’s an extremely interesting book choice, with demons, succubi, a talking cat, the interplay of good and evil, truth and lies. How did you discover it?
I’ve been obsessed with the novel ever since I read it about a year ago. I’ve always been a huge fan of Magical Realism. It’s an inspiring genre in which writers can just let their imaginations go wild and wonderful. I discovered the book through an recommendation. I’d just ordered Louis de Biernières’s The War of Don Emmanuel’s Nether Parts, and The Master and Margarita came up as an Amazon “other readers like this book” choice. I’ve read it twice now, and I just received an English first edition (Collins and Harvill, 1967) with a beautiful cover as a birthday present. That’s the one that appears on the READ poster.

You mentioned in one of your interviews that you buy a lot of books—what are some of your favorites?
I loved Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. I also liked Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose, and Émile Zola’s Germinal, which I thought would be difficult but it read very easily. I also like classic Russian writers; I’ve read Mikhail Lermontov’s A Hero of Our Time and Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Notes from the Underground. The reason that these books have become classics is that they are so readable and accessible.

Do you think Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one of the best books in the series?
My personal favorite is the fifth, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, because it’s involved with Harry’s relationship with Sirius Black, the most interesting character in the series. But Deathly Hallows is also one of the best novels. J. K. Rowling was under intense pressure to complete the series, but she is a woman of much conviction and she wrote a final novel that was both up to her exacting standards and one that she knew would give fans the ending that they wanted.

Will these two Deathly Hallows films be the best of the Harry Potter series?
They’d better be. We need to have the series go out with a bang, in recognition of all the fans who have supported the films and books over the years.

How much of the Harry Potter character is due to J. K. Rowling’s text, and how much do you attribute to your own insights and ideas?
Most of what you need to know about Harry Potter is in the books. It would have been presumptuous of me to add things that were not already there. J. K. Rowling is not one of those authors who is constantly on the set, but she was always available to answer questions.

Besides mastering Rowling’s books, how else have you prepared for your role in the film series? Do you get ideas from other fantasy novels?
Not in other novels so much as listening to music. I find Radiohead inspirational, also Florence and the Machine, whose song “My Boy Builds Coffins” from the 2009 Lungs album is filled with melancholy and determination. And “Me Ves Y Sufres” from Hope of the States’s 2004 The Lost Riots album, with the lyrics, “It’s so desperately sad that my life has come to this / I hope there’s something better than this for me.” Harry Potter is similarly dogged by tragedy.

Have you ever dipped into books on occultism for inspiration, or books about basilisks and dragons?
No, not at all. I didn’t know there were any books on basilisks. But I did look at J. K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a companion book to the series, and Jorge Luis Borges’s Book of Imaginary Beings.

What was it like shooting scenes for the first two films in Duke Humfrey’s Library at Oxford University? Did the librarians let you look at any of the really rare books?
No. Even if they had, I doubt whether I would have appreciated them at the time. However, I’m very excited to participate in the British Library’s Adopt a Book program that supports the library’s conservation work. For my birthday, a former teacher of mine, a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, chose Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles to adopt, and we get to go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the library’s conservation lab. I’m really looking forward to it.

Librarians love Harry Potter because Rowling has created such vivid characters and a fun fictional world that encourages kids to read. I understand that many cast members were intense fans of the book. Do people tell you that the books and the films have inspired a love of reading?
Absolutely, and I am a case in point. Before I was cast in the first Harry Potter film, I didn’t read much at all. But I have grown to love reading because of the film and now I am an absolutely voracious reader, although kind of a slow one. Anything that gets kids into reading is fantastic.

Do you run into other people who say that the books and films are instruction manuals for paganism and witchcraft? How do you answer them?
I have encountered that occasionally. “Paganism” is one of those words that’s thrown around and can have some terrible connotations, and I detest the word “witchcraft.” I tell them that witchcraft is not real and that I don’t understand what they are complaining about. Harry Potter is about loyalty and friendship and duty and fighting for what’s right. I believe in people and the human spirit.

I’ve read that you have contributed to charities that have helped out with the recovery from the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004. Are you also involved in literacy outreach efforts or anticensorship causes?
These are absolutely the kinds of causes that I would support. Recently I have been giving to The Trevor Project, which is an around-the-clock crisis and suicide-prevention helpline for gay and lesbian youth.

The Harry Potter role has offered you a wide range of acting challenges—drama, comedy, action, maybe even a little bit of romance. What type of role do you see as your best fit at this time?
I don’t really like to think in terms of genre. If a film has a good script, with a good director and a good part, then I’d consider it. There are very few good films that fall into just one genre.

"Putting all that aside and being in character was pretty bloody hard, it really was. That required a huge amount of professionalism. I really had to grit my teeth and be like: 'I am Hermione, this is Harry - stop thinking that it's Emma kissing Dan. It's not. It's all good.''
