Dan Radcliffe Interviewed by Out Magazine

In a new article with Out magazine Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) discusses a variety of subjects with interviewer Our Lady J, including wrapping up "Deathly Hallows," and how closely people connect Radcliffe to the character he played since 2001:

DR: I’ve just finished Potter properly yesterday.
OLJ: Did they let you keep the glasses?
DR: Yes! I’ve got two pairs from the seventh film and the pair I wore in the very, very first movie -- which are really tiny on my head now!

DR: It’s strange. I think it’s a mixture of people who actually do, in some way, think I am Harry Potter and a number of people who can’t be bothered to know my name, which is fair enough. I mean, when you’ve been so identified with one character for so long, it’s natural that it should almost become an alias. But I’ve been encouraged lately to find that people are using my real name more often.
Radcliffe also goes on to talk about how he initially got involved in the Trevor Project:

OLJ: How about your involvement with the Trevor Project? How did that come about?
DR: My family and I have always thought it was best to focus our efforts rather than kind of spreading ourselves too thin across a lot of different organizations -- just really picking things that you care about and really, really believe in, and Trevor absolutely was one of them. And when I got to have a tour of the New York call center, my admiration for the projects, but also for the place and the people, tripled. The systems they have in place, the actual way the call center works on a practical level, is so brilliant and efficient. It’s something I’m very, very proud to be able to be involved with.
Many other topics are discussed in the interview, such as Radcliffe's opinion of what working on Broadway is like, politics, LGBT issues, and his relationship status. You can read the article here, though please be aware that there is some swearing on the final page that is inappropriate for younger readers. Also, you can see the pictures from the interview here in our Image Galleries.

Awwww hes so sweet!
I don’t really understand people who can’t see an actor as anything other than their favourite character, actors play different parts, play different people, its the whole point of being an actor. If an actor could only ever play one character then they’d be pretty rubbish!

Anyway, love Dan! He makes me proud to be a Harry Potter fan. :)

He’s such a sweetheart! And I’m sure, he’ll go on to play many roles and will finally not be known ONLY as Harry Potter.

That s why I love to see the other films of my favourite actors, to not to be tempted to see them only in their Potter roles. And- sure he is a sweetheart, but he has always shown that he is also an intelligent and witty young man (Ravenclaw), and maybe one day I can stop sorting people

Excellent interview, and what a fine young man he is. (What was the warning about? I didn’t notice any swearing, but perhaps I was just too interested in the article.)

He looks like he’s trying to look like Robert Pattinson on the cover shot!! I hope that was the magazine’s doing and not his :/

It must be strange to be recognised as Harry Potter, but of course, it will be strange to see him in other vovies after HP… I saw a movie with Dan, and I thought, “Hey it`s daniel Radcliffe, from Harry Potter!”

I love the cover shot and the interview was great! I agree with Daisy, I thought he looked Robert Pattinson-ish/Twilight on the cover photo, but probably just a coincidence, and it seems like it is a popular pose/look for male models or magazine photos throughout time anyways.
