Sound bite: Daniel Radcliffe – talks about change in everyone
Well I think everyone took a big leap forward in terms of their performances this time around that’s very much due to David Yates our director who just uh was fantastic at pushing us and challenging us in different ways which we all really responded to um so other then that I mean we say this every year but the film is darker and I think that’s now a trend that will, will seize with this one and I imagine they’ll continue to get darker and darker um so yah I don’t know other than that there’s a great sense of continuity that David managed to retain while also adding his own sort of edge to it and sort of grittiness which is, which is you know which is fantastic.
Sound bite: Daniel Radcliffe – talks about switching directors
It is a challenge in a way because you know you have to adjust to a new style of direction but working with David was just such a please and I think he’s just made the most brilliant film because he sort of managed to take the brittishness of Mike Newell at with the charm of Chris Columbus films and also this sort of visual flare that Alfonso had and also as I said he’s added this edge to us he’s done a really fantastic job and so I think having a new director really keeps us all on our toes really which is very important.
