There is a new interview online tonight with actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) regarding his role in the Ricky Gervais comedy show "Extras." Jenna, from DanRadcliffe.com spoke with Dan about his skit in a new episode of the show, which has a confirmed airdate now of Thursday, September 28th at 9:00 p.m. on BBC2. Daniel says:

"I play a very, very warped version of myself in a scouts uniform," Daniel laughs, "because obviously they couldn’t do references to Harry Potter for legal reasons, so they had to put me in a scouts uniform. They couldn’t have me in a school outfit or anything. The scouts uniform looks absolutely ridiculous and very, very funny. I play this very obnoxious teenage boy who endlessly flirts with everybody he sees. It should be very, very funny, but there is this whole other story in the episode, which I think is also very funny."

Dan really enjoyed portraying this character. The episode took a total of two days to film. "Oh it was great fun because it is something that is so removed from myself. It was such a departure, and a major departure from Harry. It was just really, really good fun. We wrapped at about 4 o’clock each day. We worked unbelievably fast and it was just really, really good fun. We had a good laugh and it was all really light-hearted. Joking around is what we basically did for two days. It was fantastic." I don't know about you guys, but I think he had a really, really great time filming this! *wink*

Thanks Jenna!

"Asleep, yeah, right," said Fred in an undertone, after Hermione bade them good night and they were climbing to the next floor. "If Ginny's not lying awake waiting for Hermione to tell her everything they said downstairs, then I'm a flobberworm..."
