As promised the Hero Blog in the LA Times has now released their interview of actor Dan Radcliffe as part of their continuing series of pieces counting down until the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Here in this article, Dan recalls a story on his mother who saw her son in the character of Harry Potter as the books went along, with Dan also making remarks on playing the role for so many years.

His mother, Marcia Jeannine Gresham, told her son that as the “Potter” novels went along, she saw more of her son in the character and vice versa.“She read ‘Half-Blood Prince’ and she did say, ‘Harry has started to argue like you argue,'” Radcliffe said with a roll of his eyes. “He is very good in analogies, and I also use a lot of semantics, and it does really irritate people into submission really. Obviously, J.K. Rowling actually had cameras in my house and knows that is how I argue...”

Radcliffe laughed but then grew a bit serious.

“I would like to think I haven’t been influenced by him too much just by playing him for so long,” Radcliffe said. “I am thrilled to have this in my life, but it is separate from my life, you know? It’s nice to be called Dan. And actually I started correcting people now. You do feel like a bit of an idiot doing that, but at the same time, in the long run it is better for us. I know it’s better for me"p>
