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, he kept the glasses! That’s so sweet………but I wouldn’t expect anyone to throw out their momentums from ten years ago.
But I know so many people that call Dan just Harry Potter instead of referring to him by his real name. That really gets on my nerves!

Dan’s awesome, it’s so brilliant that there’s no stigma with him. He’s an inspiration to all of us. Plus I LOVE when Dan talks about what he’s listening to. Man always has a genius taste in music

That is so cute, about his glasses. He was really adorable in PS/SS 8→ It’s wonderful how he gets involved in these projects. Keep doing great things, Dan!

Guess That Book

Something very cold trickled down the back of Harry's neck; for a moment he thought someone was putting a Disillusionment Charm on him again, then realized that Mrs. Weasley was attacking his hair with a wet comb. She pressed hard on the top of his head.
