The interviews keep coming it seems, for there is a new piece online featuring actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) from Mexican magazine CinePremiere.  Thanks to HarryPotterLA we have a scans and a translation of the full interview which can be found right here.  In this article, Mr. Radclife speaks on a number of topics related to the Harry Potter series and his plans for after the final film is released.  On the subject of the Half-Blood Prince film, he relates a certain "friction" that he says happens "between Ron and Hermione, more than with Harry. However, I can tell you that my character is very unhappy in this movie, mainly because people keeps trying to kill him, but his love life is scary. That’s what Jo does best: mixing real ordinary life with fantasy."

In regards to the franchise as a whole, Radcliffe reflects to what it would be like upon finishing the final film by saying:

"It will be very, very strange to not come back to Harry Potter. In a certain way it’s like a safety net when I do other projects. Knowing that this will be gone, will be weird. It makes me sad to leave the character behind and not see everyday the friends I made here."
The interview continues on a number of other topics, including music.  A fan of indie rock, the young actor goes on to discuss some of this other favorites at the moment:
"I recommend the band Vampire Weekend. There’s also a girl called Laura Marley who has this really amazing songs, just like another singer called Adele. One of my favorite albums of the year was Love, Lost and Desperation by The Wombats. There’s another group that nobody seems to know another band I love called Beirut. They have two albums and both are amazing..."
Mr. Radcliffe goes on to speak to his talent at karaoke, ping pong, and more in the full interview which can be read right here.

Many thanks to!

Once again, I am impressed by his perspectives on the series, as he values what it does best with ease.
