Updated: Peter Shaffer memorial tribute

Daniel was one of the stars who attended the Peter Shaffer memorial tribute at the National Theatre in London yesterday. The playwright passed away in June last year.

Update: 5th April 2017. A photo by Cameron Slater is added below. Here another photo from the Equus performance (no not Daniel as Alan this time).

Via the London Evening Standard: Daniel Radcliffe said his appearance in the hit revival of Shaffer’s play Equus in the West End and on Broadway made him “the actor and the man I am today”.

He also said he first met the writer when he was 16, adding:

“At the time I had had no stage experience, no technical training whatsoever and outside of Potter there was very little on my CV that would suggest I could cope with anything as demanding and intense as his play and his character. But fortunately Peter managed to look beyond that and he had much, much more faith in me than I had in myself”.
