He will always be Harry. Daniel Radcliffe makes that fact perfectly clear. You’re playing a game of “what if” with one of the most recognizable faces on the globe, and the good-natured 22-year-old is like an eager puppy.

What if J.K. Rowling wrote another Harry Potter book?

What if it was turned into another film?

What if they wanted him to be the middle-aged Potter someday? He wouldn’t need to have a gut, but still, could he put on the specs again?

“If it was good enough, I would be Harry Potter again. If it was anything short of good enough, I would say no,” Radcliffe says. “I know I wouldn’t be Harry again for nostalgic or dutiful reasons.

“But if I learned one thing in life, it’s that it’s foolish to cut yourself off from anything. My motto is to never say never.”

It’s that motto that’s bringing him into his post-Potter career. After starring in the beloved wizardry franchise with worldwide grosses of over $7.7 billion, he is ready to put down his wand for at least a little while.

“I’ve had a lovely first year away from being Harry,” he says. “I made this movie and did a Broadway show.”

The movie is “The Woman in Black,” opening Friday. Radcliffe plays a widowed lawyer named Arthur Kipps who travels to a remote village to make sense of a recently deceased client’s papers. Instead of staying at some friendly local hotel, he decides to lodge at a creepy old mansion where he encounters a mystery woman dressed in all black. It’s the ghost of a scorned woman who has a yen for vengeance.

It begs the question: Why not run out of there screaming and book yourself at a nice, ghost-free Embassy Suites?

“I was even asking, ‘Why the hell does he stay in the house?’ I want to grab this character, shake him and tell him that he’s not going to do well staying in that haunted dwelling,” Radcliffe says.

“I resolved this question saying to myself, ‘Here is a young man who has lost the wife he loved. He’s almost seeking a guarantee that she is in a better place and they will be reunited someday.’

“He stays in the house because of the power of curiosity,” he says. “Curiosity is what makes us human. The character I play, regardless of what happens, needs to know what happened in this house with this woman in black.

“In the end, the film is about how grief touches people.”

It’s also about those classic horror movie moments that have you dropping your popcorn.

When you’re Harry Potter, however, getting your chills isn’t easy.

“There’s a moment where the ghost sneaks up to me at the window. I didn’t even know how bad it would be until I saw the first cut of the film,” Radcliffe says. “The director simply told me, ‘Just walk to the window and then walk away again.’ He didn’t tell me that there would be any major special effects there.

“When I saw the film I almost lost my lower half. Even on the set, the crew guys were quite protective of me. They knew the ghost effects were going to be chilling. I saw some grown men on the crew mouth the words, ‘Daniel, move!’ People who have seen the film are screaming, ‘Dan, get out of there!’ ”

In the New York apartment where he has lived alone for the last year, Radcliffe says he was turning on a few lights in the middle of the night when the shoot was done and he was on Broadway performing “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

“The bad news is that my dogs live with my mom and dad now. I’ve moved out,” he says. “I couldn’t take the dogs with me because I’m so busy that they would never eat again.

“You need dogs in your house when you make a horror movie to check out the noises,” he quips.

His parents are Alan Radcliffe, a literary agent, and Marcia Gresham, a casting director, two people who always supported his yen to act. They helped him audition for school plays and supported his decision to take it even further and go pro.

His first major role was in a 1999 TV version of “David Copperfield.” In 2001, he was in “The Tailor of Panama” as the son of Geoffrey Rush and Jamie Lee Curtis.

David Heyman, the producer of the Harry Potter films, attended a play where he met Daniel and his father in the audience.

“At that moment, I looked at Dan and thought, ‘He is Harry Potter,’ ” Heyman says of casting Radcliffe in 2001’s “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.”

The Potter franchise, concluding with last year’s “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” (2011), became Radcliffe’s childhood album.

“I’m seriously proud of the last two films,” he says. “They so far surpassed my dreams. It’s great to hear from people who didn’t even see the other films and have no emotional connection loving the last film.”

Some thought he deserved an Oscar nomination for playing Potter. “People asked about my chances and I say I would be more likely to get hit by an Oscar if it came flying at me,” he said.

“I don’t need anything else. I had the role of a lifetime.”

He came away with some Potter souvenirs. “I got two pairs of the glasses. All I had to do was ask,” he says with a laugh. “I have one pair of glasses from the first film and one from the last.”

Radcliffe hopes to wind up behind the camera. “I would love to direct,” he says, fretting, “The problem is I’d employ all of my friends. I wouldn’t have a single unpleasant person around me.

“But I would love to step behind the camera and stay in front of it, too,” he says. “Life is full of possibilities.”

The only thing not possible: Developing a star attitude.

“I’m just a crazy kind of actor who just cares about the work,” Radcliffe says. “The truth is I didn’t get an attitude over the last several years, which was a conscious choice. Why get an attitude when your job is to be a wizard and defeat evil and fly through the air? It’s a good job.

“I’m just a bad movie star!” he cries. “But the truth is I’ve always had an intrinsic dislike of people with attitudes. I never trusted those kinds of people.

“If I ever became that kind of actor, I’d have to sit myself down … and have a talk with myself.”

Relax, Potterheads. All is well. Yes, beginning on Dec. 29, Warner Bros. is halting shipments of Harry Potter DVDs and Blu-rays to Walmart and Amazon and other stores. But discs aren’t being immediately swept from the shelves. “Even though there could be a sense of urgency from the consumers’ perspective, there will be Potter product come the first of the year,” says Jeff Baker, senior vp and general manager of Warner Bros.’ Theatrical Catalog. “But over time, they’ll be less and less of that inventory. At some point, whether it’s next April or May or June or July, it’ll probably be very difficult to find Harry Potter product, especially if you’re looking for the third movie or the fifth movie, for example.”

Even with its gradual disappearance from store shelves, the Potter franchise will remain available in other forms, like video-on-demand and digital download. “The idea is not to let Harry Potter dissipate. There are exhibits around the world. There’s the Harry Potter World [i.e. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter] in Orlando,” says Baker. “There are a lot of things that are Harry Potter that are going to be available to consumers well into the future, and we certainly want a home entertainment component to those grand plans.”

This isn’t the first time that Warner Bros. has pulled a popular title from its catalog. The Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, and Blade Runner have all vanished from time to time — to then be reintroduced with great fanfare. Disney, of course, is famous for making its classic films drop out of sight from time to time so that it can later make a splash with a new generation of fans.

Warner Bros. doesn’t intend to wait as long, and there are already plans to “eventize” Potter’s return. “There is discussion internally about aggregating assets from all of these films over the last decade and adding some new things — we’ve never done an Ultimate Edition on the final two films — and doing some grand kind of piece,” says Baker. “It could be the end of 2012 or the beginning of ’13.”

Got that, Muggles? Yes, you might want to rush out and purchase The Complete 8-Film Edition when it is released Nov. 11. But even that “complete” set of films will soon be surpassed by another, more complete Harry Potter video collection. So, is this good news or bad news for Potter fans? You decide.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is
reportedly ready to ask his secret girlfriend to marry him.

The Woman In Black star, who has been dating
production assistant Rosanne Coker in secret for the past year after meeting on
the set of ‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’ in 2007, is allegedly trying
to conjure up the courage to propose to her.

Rosanne, 22, and Daniel are said to have a lot
of fun together and have already met each others prospective
in-laws.

Muggles in love: Daniel Radcliffe and his girlfriend Rosanne Coker spend some quality time in New York earlier this week

Rosanne’s father Malcolm – who runs his own
painting business – said he was thrilled with the romance because Daniel is a
‘lovely’ guy.

He told the Daily Mail: ‘I don’t want to say
too much really as they would really prefer to keep things
quiet.

‘But Rosanne has worked on the last three
‘Harry Potter’ films, so she and Daniel have known each other quite a long time.

‘But they have been going out for just over a
year now. I have met Daniel and he is a lovely guy.

‘I’m just really happy for Rosanne and as long
as she is happy that is all that matters to me.’

According to the Sun, film chiefs worried
about 22-year-old Daniel’s image as a clean-cut school boy wizard and forced him
to keep his relationship quiet until the final Harry Potter film was
done.

Daniel has previously dated Irish actress
Laura O’Toole and was recently linked to Olive
Uniacke.

Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling poses for photographers during the launch of her new project www.pottermore.com in London.

http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/06/27/2289455/rowling-creates-website-for-her.h

Associated Press

 

            Author J.K. Rowling has joined the 21st century on her own  special terms. One of the world’s most famous digital holdouts, Rowling will  sell e-book editions of her iconic  Harry Potter  series exclusively on a new, interactive website.

Tom Turcan, chief operating officer of http://www.pottermore.com, says Rowling wants “to make the books available to everybody, not to make them available only to  people who own a particular set of devices, or tethered to a particular set of  platforms.”

During a press conference in London last week, Rowling cited the special bond  she has had with fans online and said she was “phenomenally lucky in that I have  the resources to do it myself and therefore I got to do it, I think, right.”

E-books have jumped from less than 1 percent of total sales four years ago to  more than 20 percent. Children’s books are catching up as the Kindle, Nook and  other devices become cheaper and touch-screen readers such as the Nook and the  iPad enable illustrated stories to be available in digital form.

Pottermore is far more than a retail outlet. The site lets fans shop for  wands in Diagon Alley, travel to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from  the imaginary Platform 9 3/4 at London’s King’s Cross train station and be  assigned to Hogwarts houses by the Sorting Hat.

The website, which launches with a beta version July 31, also features 18,000  words of new Potter material from Rowling, who said it will have “information I  have been hoarding for years” about the books’ characters and settings. “I go  into ridiculous detail about wand woods.”

The e-books become available in October, with Rowling’s longtime publishers,  Bloomsbury Publishing in the United Kingdom and Scholastic in the United States,  sharing revenues.
