Video: Time Magazine and Ten Questions Answered by Dan Radcliffe

Check it out. Time Magazine has released this new video interview with actor Dan Radcliffe who answers ten questions from fans. In the article version, you can see a new (handsome) photo of Dan, plus read some of the responses which include a very candid response on the character of Harry Potter:

What do you think has been Harry's greatest misstep or failure in judgment?Susan Bevins, Winter Park, Fla.
Susan Bevins, you have asked a question no journalist has ever asked me. I think the way he treated his friends a couple of films ago was quite questionable. They're always there for him, and he was a little bit ungrateful. I think Harry is a flawed character. He can be quite selfish and really manipulative. He's not all sweetness and light.

What do you think about the way J.K. Rowling formed the plots of the books?Frances Taylor, Sarnia, Ont.
Obviously, it's inspired. Otherwise, they wouldn't have done nearly as well as they have. They have taken the best bits of different kinds of literature. It's the latest in a long line of orphan literature. There's the English boarding school. There's the good-vs.-evil thing. The fact that she came up with the entire thing on one train journey is pretty remarkable.

Cheers Aly!

Love this video. These actors genuinely appear to listen and care about the movies, content and fan queries. I can almost see gears turning as they ponder the questions and give well versed canon answers. (Emma Watson does this too).

Fancast has the We Are Wizards documentary about Harry Potter fans. I thought it was really good. Check it out if you haven’t already!

I like when the fans get to be the ones asking the questions, they are always more interesting than the repetitive ones the journalists ask.
It’s funny what he says about the comedy, I think he doesn’t realize how good he is with it, because after watching the film I thibk Daniel stole the show with the Felix Felicis scene! He was so funny! I can’t wait to watch the movie again. :)

Wow! They actually liked my question enough to use it. That is amazing. I think all the questions were thought provoking too, and I learned a lot from them.

That’s great FrescaROAR! Which one is your question? :D

I really liked the stories about Richard Harris and Gary Oldman. See, journalists don’t make the right questions, otherwise we would have heard those stories quite a long time ago!

As usual, Dan delivers. He is SO quick! So smart at his age so who knows what he’ll be like with a decade of other data and learning in his busy head. I love you danrad!
