Daniel Radcliffe Teases “Frankenstein” News in Toronto Film Festival Interview
While his performances in Horns and Kill Your Darlings are attracting rave reviews, it would seem that journalists can’t quite resist asking Daniel Radcliffe the “Do people still see you as Harry” question; the interviewer hosting Radcliffe’s latest interview is no exception to this rule.
Despite a rather predictable start, however, the interview from Toronto Film Festival on Entertainment Weekly does encourage Radcliffe to speak rather freely about work on Horns and how, at times, he was able to relate to his character’s frustrations when being harrased by press. He also spills a few, very tiny beans on his next project, Frankenstein, also starring James McAvoy.
You don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
I start filming Frankenstein later in the year. It’s an absolutely brilliant, mad adventure of a script with James McAvoy as Victor, and I’ll be playing Igor. [He pronounces it “I”-gor].
Is it “I”-gor or “E”-gor, per Young Frankenstein?
There is some debate now about which is the version we’re going to use. It won’t be up to me because it’s not actually my name for the whole film … so I’ll leave that as a tantalizing clue. I’m not the one who has to say it first. I think James is the one to call me it first. So whatever he pronounces, that will be the name.
So if your Potter news quota hasn’t quite been statisfied for today (greedy!), then do check out the full interview here.
