Updated: Scans Empire magazine: Daniel Radcliffe talks Woman in Black (UK)

Scans of the Empire magazine October issue. Features new stills of The Woman in Black. Scans via simplydanielradcliffe.com.


Update: 8th September 2011. a HQ picture (the one with the candle) here thanks to the Woman in Black UK Facebook page.

Daniel Radcliffe: "I feel like I’ve landed on my feet with this being the first thing after Harry. Because this is very different, in that I’m playing a father and it’s a more grown-up film, but it’s not so scandalously different that people will say, ‘Oh, he’s just trying too hard; he’s trying to shock us into thinking he’s something else now.’ I think I’ve taken away some of the ammunition people can throw."

"But I know it’s going to be a leap for people who’ve seen me in a schoolboy outfit for the last ten years and suddenly I’m playing a dad. In the script you read, it probably said Arthur was 27, but we’re pinching it at about 24. Because I can just about pass for 24, especially with the sideburns and make up … That was the thing that worried me more.

"I started to think, ‘Should I do a deeper voice?’, but the chances are my voice isn’t going to be any deeper by the time I’m 24, so it didn’t make sense. And James [Watkins, director] was very quick to allay my fears and say, ‘Well, if that’s what the audience is thinking about, then we’re buggered anyway.'"
One trait noted about Dan was the fact that he was a mouth-breather in real life, but for Kipps he had to learn to breathe only through his nose, something he kept forgetting.

Dan: "That’s one thing James has been very, very keen on. The note I get more than any other on this film is, ‘Close your mouth!'"

"What’s interesting is when he comes here [to the village]. When I was reading the script I was going, ‘Why doesn’t he leave?! He’s nuts for staying here!’ But the interesting thing James said was, ‘He’s lost his wife, he’s searching for her and then he sees the ghost of a dead woman.'

"That curiosity keeps him there. Because curiosity is a very powerful thing. It sounds like a twee word, but it’s what makes us human. It’s such a powerful force." 

On reading Virginia Ironside's You’ll Get Over It, a book about dealing with grief:
Dan: “It was fantastic. It was the most honest book. The thing it talked about, that I liked, was that people always talk about the seven stages [of grief], but what it said was, the idea of having stages implies that after you’ve gone through them you will be over it. The thing with Arthur is he never got out of that place.

There’s a bit in [C.S. Lewis'] A Grief Observed where it talks about [how grief is] like walking through a valley where the landscape always changes and repeats. It’s that thing of being stuck in the cycle of grief and living with the ghost. That’s what he’s been doing: living with the ghost of his wife for the last four years.

Updated(2): New The Woman in Black trailer (with exclusive introduction from Dan Radcliffe)

Yahoo! Movies released the new US/UK trailer online (below is the UK version, but don't worry both are the same regarding the scenes) of The Woman in Black, and Dan also recorded a short introduction. Enjoy



Update:
Yahoo! Movies talk chatted with Dan about The Woman in Black. Read that below. Then there is also a message to all "Hammer Fans" from Daniel Radcliffe regarding TWIB via Hammer Films
I spoke to Radcliffe from New York where he's appearing on Broadway in the musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" and I asked him what it was about this role that made it the right choice for his first post-"Potter" film.  Radcliffe said, "It was certainly not a part that people can really compare to Harry… But [the] main attraction, to be honest, was simply the story, and how compelling it was, and being a part of a really, really good horror film."

In "The Woman in Black," Radcliffe plays Arthur Kipps, a lawyer whose wife has died leaving him with a young son.  He is sent to a small village to sort out the affairs of a deceased client, but as he delves into local secrets he encounters a ghostly presence that foretells a deadly curse.  Radcliffe called the film's script "a character-driven, well-written horror film that had the capability of being just as scary as any 'Paranormal Activity' or any of those films that have recently come out,  while also having a depth of character that you don't often find there."

That's not to say, however, that Radcliffe considers himself to be a real fan of horror movies.  He said, "To be honest, if I wasn't in it myself I'd probably be too scared to see it."  Though he did clarify that the scares in "The Woman in Black" are not the type that would usually have him covering his eyes.  "What I was always scared of as a child and as a teenager was gore and blood and things like that," Radcliffe said.  "When it got too gory that's when I would get freaked out."  He explained that this film is more of a classically suspenseful ghost story: "There are moments when people do jump out of their seats, but there [are] also the the subtler moments when you just find a chill running up your spine and you're not quite sure why."

"The Woman in Black" is based on a 1983 horror novel that was previously adapted into a play that's been running continuously in London for 23 years.  It was also made into a television movie in 1989, and that version has an odd connection to Radcliffe's earlier career.  Adrian Rawlins, the actor who starred in the lead role in that adaptation, went on play Harry Potter's father.  Radcliffe recalled that he had finished work on the final film, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," and was preparing for this when he learned this fact.  He said, "I went online and, saw, suddenly, yes, Adrian Rawlins's name came up who was one of loveliest actors we've ever had on 'Potter,' and he played my dad."  Radcliffe said the link was entirely coincidental, but that "it was another bit of kinship we had there."

Radcliffe said that he read the original book, but that this new film diverges significantly from how the story is told in the novel.  But he said that Susan Hill, the book's author, "has been with us every step of the way… I know she's seen the film, and [she] is delighted with the finished product."  The film is directed by James Watkins, who previously made the violent British thriller "Eden Lake," which Radcliffe said he watched "and [I] thought, oh Jesus Christ, I know I'll be now working with a psychopath… If he wrote this film he must be an absolutely insane man."  Radcliffe expressed his relief, though, when he met the director and discovered, "he's this very, very smart, very funny, very classy guy."  Radcliffe was so impressed by Watkins work that he said the filmmaker is capable of becoming one of "the leading lights in British cinema for some time."

After playing the same character on screen for a decade — nearly half his life — Radcliffe seems eager to stretch himself with each new role.  But he said, "I don't have a long-term plan whatsoever." While some actors would feel the pressure to follow up a massive franchise like "Potter" with another huge project, Radcliffe doesn't see it that way.  He said, "[In] a way what's quite nice is that I will never have, in my career, a film that it has financially successful as 'Harry Potter.'  Ever. That is beyond question. But what's nice about that is that I don't have to aim for that anymore."  Because he already worked on the sort of big blockbusters that other actors dream of doing, he feels a degree of freedom to pick smaller projects that speak to him personally.  Radcliffe said, "If I dedicate myself to… each film as they come, then the long-term thing should take care of itself."
