    The people were so wrong about Daniel being in Equus being a bad thing. So many people today don’t even remember he was in it.
    Only think Iv watched with Daniel Radcliffe in it I didn’t enjoy was horns. Sorry to those who like that movie I just didn’t.

    I never thought he was a great actor, honnestly. But he's a good human.

      Nothing against your comment. But did you see Jungle? He was really great and phenomenal into it. And even before Harry Potter, he played into the movie David Copperfield, he was really good for his young age. I think he is really a talentuous guy but i can understand your point of view! Yea i think too it is a great human being.

    I've watched a few of these now today and I'm getting sick of it being in black and white. It's not cool.

    My daughter and I saw him in Equus in NYC. We both were blown away by how good his performance was. In fact, we said, "He should ONLY do plays."

    If anything it proved he doesn't have any talent as an actor, like most of his roles. His agent also probably knew he'd get media coverage like crazy for doing what he did.

    This is so fantastically interesting, Dan is one of the most interesting and humble celebs with a wisdom beyond his years. The host is insightful and direct in his questions, daring to ask what others might not and plays well off Dan's sense of humour.

    I get a very similar impression of the Graham Norton show which always seems to be like famous people having a chat rather than doing an interview. Brilliant stuff!

    Am I the only one that refuses to accept the fact Daniel Radcliffe is no more little boy wizard but a grown man? Honestly, I don't want to know that Harry Potter showed his a little Potter for the sake of theatre performance...

    Does anyone know why he twitches his nose sometimes? I haven't noticed him doing it until this recent lot of press.

    Daniel Radcliffe seems an excellent actor, but above all, I think it reflects an impressive human warmth. I believe that its simplicity and honesty are its main characteristics. He has managed to keep his feet on the ground and fame has not gone to his head. That has made a great human being. Despite the difficulties he suffered during the filming of Harry Potter and his addiction to alcohol in his teens, he knew how to overcome them. I think he has been an actor who has matured and, although he is remembered especially for his role in Harry Potter, he has been able to play other roles with professionalism. I wish Daniel many successes in his personal and professional life. Its simplicity is what makes it, without a doubt, a great actor and, above all, a good human being.

    Yes, yes, I love this series, love the talks, the format, ALL. ....but hey, wait, is no one going to address the OWL COMMENT.... ? A REAL OWL? No. Would someone please address this issue.

      @Alistair Weir THANK YOU!! (I was worried. Thank you so much).
      .... oddly (talk about 'attracting things to yourself') I went on to watch a dozen clips (on all different subjects, wildly diff topics and venues) and, in about 5 or 6 of them, there was mention of animals ... and something happening to them ... "NOOoooooo! " ...hmmm.

      I say the same about any female actor, anyone who gets their kit off is saying to people "here is my body do what you want with it" and that takes balls...if you know what I mean...

      Apparently Eddie Redmayne's was Nala from the Lion King...

      But seriously I know nothing about Equus other than Dan was in it, don't he get his kit off in front of a horse? How did they stop the horse shitting all over the stage?
