In a new article with Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe, Dan talks about his wish to prove himself as an actor by taking on different projects like Equus, My Boy Jack and Extras. He also comments on working with Imelda Staunton, David Yates and once again with Gary Oldman and how he wishes to work with Yates in the future.
Dan on working with Imelda Staunton and Gary Oldman:
Any scene really with Imelda Staunton or Gary Oldman has been incredible, just because they're both so brilliant to work with. The thing that I really admire about both of them is the fact that no only are they great actors, but they're also incredibly personable. They'll talk to anyone on the set about anything, and then as soon as they get on the set they're focused and they just act. And they're brilliant, and they're constantly refining their performances, so it's fantastic for me to watch that.
Dan also comments on working once again with Richard Griffiths in Equus next year:
I can't wait to work on Equus with Richard, it will be fantastic to work with him in another capacity other than Uncle Vernon. At the moment I see him for a couple of weeks on every film, bar the fourth, which unfortunately he wasn't in, and then he goes off again and as much as a fantastic actor as he is I never get to spend as much time with him. And so on this I get to spend the first half of next year with him!
