Dan Radcliffe talks Deathly Hallows, working with David Yates at BFI Movie-Con III
Dan Radcliffe在BFI Movie-Con III谈《死亡圣器》以及与导演David Yates共事的感受
Actor Daniel Radcliffe made a surprise guest appearance at this weekend's BFI Movie-Con III in London, where he spoke about the end of the Harry Potter series in Deathly Hallows, who he'd like to play if the series were brought to the big screen again, and working with director David Yates.
演员Daniel Radcliffe作为本周末BFI Movie-Con III在伦敦的惊喜来宾，和我们分享了许多关于《哈利波特》系列最后一部——《死亡圣器》的消息，以及如果这电影系列要重返荧幕，他会选择扮演哪个角色，并提到了与导演David Yates一起工作的感受。
Are you done?
“Yes, we finished. I promised myself it wouldn’t end on green screen but inevitably it did. The last shot was us jumping through the screen onto a mat.
Were you in bits?
“Not then but afterwards. I’ve never seen Rupert Grint cry before; it was weird. It was like seeing your Dad cry. But now we’re on to new things and I’m looking forward to the future. I’m very excited about The Woman In Black. I think James (Watkins) is great; he’s going to be the next Chris Nolan I think.”
“当时没有，而是在拍摄结束后。我以前从未见过Rupert Grint哭，那感觉很奇怪。看到他哭，就像看到自己的父亲在哭一样。不过我们现在开始接受新的挑战，我也在期待未来的发展。《黑衣女人》（The Woman In Black）这部话剧作品让我特别兴奋。我觉得詹姆斯（James Watkins）很了不起，也许他就是下一个克里斯诺兰（Chris Nolan）。”
You’re going to have to be scared a lot.
“Yes, but that’s OK; I’m good at scared faces.” [demonstrates his scared face, which is admittedly accomplished]
What was making this double Potter like though?
“It was hard. Before, the producers and directors were very good at taking all the pressure on their shoulders, but this time going into it we were slightly more nervous than we were before, because we didn’t want to screw it up as the last one.
It was a long shoot, near enough 18 months, but a film set is the best place in the world as far as I’m concerned. The first part is a very weird road movie kind of thing. The first part is slower paced, but only compared to the second part. There’s more of an exploration of the relationships between the characters, that’s tested for the first times. And you’re not in Hogwarts, which gives it a very different feel from the other movies.
It’s a road movie, in a weird way, and it’s how the characters function outside those familiar surroundings. The second part starts as a heist movie and then turns into a war. It’s epic. The thing they did on the last day was to play us the trailer, and there was a collective sigh of, “Phew, it’s going to be really good”. This is the first time I’m genuinely excited to see the film. Because it was filmed over such a long period, I’ve genuinely forgotten what we shot early on."
Have you watched the films on DVD?
“I do, but I rarely watch them. I have two friends – just two! – and one wants me to play the Lego Harry potter game with him, and the other wants me to give him an uncensored commentary with them sometime."
So a Potter-thon?
“No! I do get really embarrassed watching the early one. I was talking to Emma on set once on set and saying how bad we were, and we were on mike, and suddenly I heard Mike Newell shout, “You got it because you were both BLOODY ADORABLE”.
Since then it’s been David Yates – has it helped having him all the way?
“I think whoever directed the sixth had to direct the seventh; you needed to ensure that there wouldn’t be a distraction there, of a change in style. I’m thrilled that David did them all, he’s the loveliest man, so quiet and soft-spoken, but he has an incredible vision for plots. He can see the entire film in front of him. He can come up to me when we’re doing scene 328 and reference something we did in scene 8, and I’ve got no memory for those things."
