Radcliffe broke his own rule in the interview of not talking about romantic relationships, saying, ‘We’re very happy but we’re not engaged. And we’re not flying to Paris to choose a ring either.’
Relationships were very much on Radcliffe’s mind though, as he talked to The London Magazine ahead of the release of his new indie romcom What If. The film tells the story of a boy who falls for girl who’s already in a relationship, and so he has to settle for being her friend: an experience with which Radcliffe empathises, although he is adamant that he has never been as ‘pig-headed about love as [his character] Wallace’.
Pig-headed certainly isn’t a phrase that The London Magazine’s Deputy Editor, Tabitha Lasley would use to describe the actor. Of the exclusive interview and shoot, she says, ‘Like most British people, our readers have watched Daniel grow up on screen and have a vested interest in how he’s turned out. Happily, we’re able to report back that he was an absolute pleasure to work with: courteous, charming, dedicated to his craft. As you’d expect, he was circumspect about his relationship with Erin Darke, but refreshingly candid about his career, his ambitions and his life post-Potter. We know our London readers expect a degree of honesty and insight from all our interviewees, so he really was the perfect cover star.’
