Last night actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Richard Griffiths (Uncle Vernon) were guests on the acclaimed Charlie Rose show which is broadcast on PBS. Video of this fascinating interview where they discuss their play Equus and more is now online here. Enjoy!

Please note: The bulk of this interview focuses in depth on Equus, with some lovely, reflective, and thought-provoking conversation, especially from Richard Griffiths who is also very complimentary about Dan, his young career, and how he has worked with some of the greats in the Harry Potter films, notably Gary Oldman, Michael Gambon, Richard Harris and Dame Maggie Smith. At the end of the interview Richard and Dan say they will begin filming on the two part Deathly Hallows, with Dan noting he has 14 months of shooting to do for the films

I watched this last night, I thought it was quite good. Not ONE question about being nude on stage was asked. Finally! I thought Dan’s comments were good, and Richard Griffiths is very interesting to listen to.
And by the way, could people say anything more interesting than “third!”?

It was a very good interview.Dan was given intelligent questions and
had intelligent answers, wish other interviewers would take note for next summer….ummmm!
I loved how complimentary Dan was to Richard and how much in respect he holds him as does Richard to Dan.
Dan’s comment about not knowing everything when your 19 was
wonderful!!! As he is!

from the comments it sounds like it was good.
“Not ONE question about being nude on stage was asked. Finally! "
If that’s the case then I definitely want to watch it, i got sick of people always asking that question.

could anyone in the Leaky Staff put the interview in the video section?
please

I’m with you- FINALLY! The in-depth discussion of Equus that I’ve wanted since the West End run. That was brilliant, thanks alot Leaky. Loved Richard’s story about Armstrong. Daniel was also incredibly hansome and intelligent

How come no one asked who it feels to be naked on stage? That’s like tradition!! And how are we going to find out if the feeling has changed for Dan? That’s no good!! There should be a “naked feeling of the day” website, where Dan could post daily how it feels to be naked on stage. Share his naked feelings and naked fears and naked ambitions and…. er…. I just went to far.

Just kidding… I like it better with people not asking naked questions.

What a delightful interview, very proffessional from all parties. I have no qualms about the adult life of Dan. He seems very well balanced.

I hope one of his future fims will be a comedy. I think he is versatile enough for that.

Thank you Leaky for that wonderfull moment. It was so refreshing.

Concerning the clips of the play: Bravo, great acting from both of them. Dan has a great future. In his other movies, he is a great actor. At first I wanted to watch him take on another roles, but then I found myself watching because I realy enjoy watching him perform.

I really enjoyed this interview. Why did it come with the “warning” that it wasn’t about Potter? I mean,maybe some would learn about something else!
