He admits that stripping off made people look at him in a completely different way: ‘I don’t know if I actually connected those thoughts.
Ten minutes is a hell of a long time – and I was out there at the centre of the stage.'There’s nothing like doing a nude scene to put yourself under pressure.
But honestly, it might look like I do but I don’t go round insisting that nudity clauses have to be put in my contract – I just happen to be getting it out a lot at the moment.’For Radcliffe, nudity was a way of freeing himself from Harry Potter, a role that defined him from the age of 11 when he was cast as the Hogwarts hero in what was to become the biggest movie franchise of all time.
Whether itâs acting, directing or writing, I want to be involved in the film industry for the rest of my life. A lot struggle to tell the difference between the films and reality and there are lots of wary seven-year-olds who wonât say hello to me.
Sometimes trying to be nice freaks them out even more.
There have been a couple who burst into tears when they met me. Apparently Emma Watson used to fancy you â was this a surprise?
No, because sheâd said it before a few years ago on TV.
Which of the older actors did you get on best with? I had mates round when the first one was on TV and they took the mick for ten minutes, then turned it back to the football.

Tom Felton, aka Harry Potter baddie Draco Malfoy, tells Metro about his secret boy crush, why he cringes when he sees himself on screen, and whether we can expect to see him stripping off on stage like Daniel Radcliffe did. Alan Rickman , Michael Gambon , Helena Bonham Carter â theyâre all wonderful people and very helpful and inspiring. It was one of my favourite films when I was younger and I asked how he did certain scenes. It took me six years to work up the courage to ask him. On my last day, we were at Kingâs Cross station in make-up, which made us look 19 years older. Iâll take my clothes off â whatever the job requires.
Jason Isaacs [Lucius Malfoy] always looked after me very well. She said tell your brain youâre not allowed to cry and then itâs more likely to happen. You hear stories about actors who demand their coffee to be served at a certain temperature but on Harry Potter if you wanted a cup of tea you had to get it yourself. One of the first days was the scene of us walking into the great hall, which Iâll never forget. Will you have to take off all your clothes on stage to shake off the Draco Malfoy image? Daniel Radcliffe didnât do it for an image change; he did it because heâs very passionate about theatre.
But despite her quest for a 'normal life', Miss Watson announced that she was leaving Brown University in March to defer her course for 'a semester or two' while she helps promote the release of the second Deathly Hallows film.
