It seems we missed a short quip in Time magazineopens in new window recently from Michael Gambon (Dumbledore), who commented on co-star Daniel Radcliffe's choice to run naked across the stage in "Equus," which opened this week:

You're a theater actor. How has playing Dumbledore changed your fan base?

I was in the makeup chair recently, and someone brought in two kids. I peeled the beard off, and they started crying. They couldn't believe what they were seeing.

What do you make of Daniel Radcliffe's stage debut in Equus?

He's growing up. He's a proper theater actor now. He's naked in this thing, so all the girls will go out and see it. I'd be frightened running around the stage with nothing on at all. When you stop running, one thing keeps moving. I bet he didn't think of that.
