Dan Radcliffe talks Deathly Hallows split, looks, plot, and more in fansite interview

In a new interview with several Harry Potter fansites including MuggleNet, Dan Radcliffe discusses a variety of topics related to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1.  Read the entire interview at this link, and read our specific question to Dan below.  Enjoy! Question: For people who haven’t read the books, do you think the fans reaction will turn in the first half of the movie against Dumbledore because of Rita’s book? Dan: Good question. I hope so. That’s kind of the intention. Because that for me is what the first film is about. It’s about faith. It’s about how far can faith be tested before you give in entirely. He hears so much about Dumbledore that is less than redeemable and he starts to really question why he is going on this insane, demanding mission which is costing him his friends and potentially will cost him his life.. for someone he starts to question the values of. Hopefully at the end of the first film people should be very much wondering ‘Well what is this? What was Dumbledore’s real agenda?’ Continue reading… Read More »

Dan Radcliffe talks to MTV about recent youth suicides, offers advice

In light of several recent youth suicides that have occurred over the past month, Dan has issued this statement to MTV with his feelings on the matter: \”Learning about the suicide deaths of Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh, Asher Walker, Billy Lucas and Justin Aaberg has been heartbreaking for me. These young people were bullied and tormented by people that should have been their friends.  We have a responsibility to be better to each other, and accept each others’ differences regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ability, or religion and stand up for someone when they’re bullied.\” \”When a friend is feeling depressed or says they’re thinking of killing themselves, we must take it seriously and get them help. My deepest sympathies go out to the families and friends of these excellent young people. And to all the young people who are being bullied right now, you are not alone. Call the Trevor Lifeline at 866 4-U-TREVOR, because there’s always someone there who will listen and who can help.\” We’re glad to see Dan speaking out about this and agree with his tip 100%.  Visit The Trevor Project’s website for more information.
