Daniel Radcliffe Talks About Visiting the Star Wars: Episode 7 Set.


Daniel Radcliffe is in London promoting his new horror film, Horns. While speaking to the press the Harry Potter star expressed his excitement about visiting the Episode VII set…


From ITV:

The young British star admitted how excited he had been on his recent visit to the set of the new Star Wars movie at Pinewood studios.


Radcliffe revealed: “I was so excited, ’cause I literally just watched the original Star Wars movies very recently, so I was like a new fan going on set. But I got to meet Harrison Ford and have a chat, and he was lovely. It was great.


“Most people would be excited about seeing the Star Wars set but I went out because all my friends were working there ’cause it’s the Potter crew, they’ve basically just moved onto that, so I was going to see all of them.”

    He shouldn’t talk too much about what he saw, or they will put an Obliviate spell on him.

    Wasn’t there talk about a mystery actor? Is it him? That picture he looks like a villain..

  • October 21, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    I wonder which internet site will be the first to come out with, “Daniel Ratcliffe cast as EpVII villain, The Grave Robber!”.

    He looks like he could be the offspring off Han and Leia in that picture.

    But he’s Harry Potter and it would be hard to get over that fact if he was in this movie. Imo

      Much like Leonardo DiCaprio MIGHT have been an acceptable Anakin Skywalker if it hadn’t been for a slightly successful movie about a sinking ship. After that, no chance (though GL met with him and apparently hoped to cast him, and very possibly cast Jake Lloyd in Ep 1 anticipating Leo as the grown-up version of the same character).

      It is best to go for relative unknowns for the principal parts in these movies, so that the face of the actor doesn’t get in the way of the character. Just throw in a very few veteran actors to anchor the whole thing (like sir Alec and McDiarmid before, and von Sydow now).

        Somewhere there is an alternate universe in which Lucas met with Leo, scrapped the plan for Phantom Menace, and created three absolutely kick-ass prequel films.

        Maybe an ion storm will blow me into that universe someday…

          No offense but Leo doesn’t come off as the Darth Vader type.

          Great actor tho.

          • October 22, 2014 at 2:58 am

            He is a great actor. One of the best of his generation. He can go very dark when he wants to – but that’s the whole point really isn’t it? He has a range – Hayden Panittierre did not have a range – he didn’t have a burner – yuk yuk.

            Leo DiCaprio could have pulled off the Anakin fall from grace so well we would all have been breathless.

          • October 22, 2014 at 5:04 pm

            That very well may be.

            But the scene in episode 2 where Anakin is talking to Padme about his slaughtering of the Raiders and his anger with Obi Wan, I thought was well done.

            Gotta remember Lucas told Hayden how to portray Anakin, it’s not like Hayden wrote the script.

          • October 22, 2014 at 10:44 pm

            I thought it was particularly excellent when Padme just shrugged and was “Oh well mass murder. You’ll get over it. I kniw cause I already have”

            That ion storm couldn’t come soon enough to blow you away.

    I remember when he got Leavesdon and Pinewood mixed up. Sounds like he went to the right studio.

    [Spoiler Caution]

    If Daniel Radcliffe was in this – and then had a role in The Simarillion – and then was cast as Dr. Who in 2032. He would rule all Nerddom.

    I saw the movie horns……… it’s not a kids movie. And I can honestly say I didn’t think Harry Potter when I saw him. That being said I don’t want him in sw7.
    I don’t get how he would wait till recently to watch the ot. I guess I assume that all kids watch Star Wars……..i mean the OT is just good parenting. I have 2 young daughters and they love sw. But better late than never

  • October 21, 2014 at 10:25 pm

    What the hell is wrong with this dude?

    He JUST saw star wars? Like for the first time? Shouldn’t every actor have some kind of interest in some of the greatest films of all time?

    Same guy who made his career by being Harry Potter and admitted he hadn’t read the books.

    Lazy jerk.

    • October 22, 2014 at 12:38 am

      It seems more than a bit strange that he NEVER watched ANY of these movies before. Never even caught them on TV?

      They have been in existence for his entire life, right? I guess some would theorize that he saw a prequel or two as a child, and hated Jar-Jar so much that it took him until adulthood to give any movie from the franchise a new chance.

    • October 22, 2014 at 1:58 am

      First off, you are incorrect about him not reading the books, that was Michael Gambon, the actor who portrayed Dumbledore from the 3rd film onwards. Daniel Radcliffe was very much a fan of the books before being cast as harry, a fact that is well documented from countless years of interviews.

      Second, there’s more people than you’d think who haven’t seen Star Wars before. It’s not a matter of being lazy at all! There’s plenty of well known films I’ve never watched, and I’m an actor too! Does that make me a lazy jerk too? Of course not!

      • October 22, 2014 at 2:56 am

        Plus he said the OT. The prequels were out when he was growing up.

      • October 22, 2014 at 7:26 am

        Woah. Ok, my bad. He read the first 2 and stopped because he didn’t like them when he got the part. I remembered wrong. And the lazy jerk comment is sarcasm.

        You can put in a real zinger of a comment on how I’m the lazy jerk for not checking my facts before I rip the guy, if you want. Surprised it hasn’t happened yet actually.

        Guess I just want reasons to dislike the dude because the movies were such a let down. Not all his fualt, but he didn’t help much either in my opinion.

    • October 22, 2014 at 6:13 am

      He read the books. The first Potter book is what got him into reading. He’s described reading The Deathly Hallows while talking about what music he was listening to while reading it in the car. It’s Elijah Wood who STILL hasn’t read Lord Of The Rings.

    To think I should have lived to hear about a Daniel Radcliffe visit to the star wars set, and be privileged enough to read a paragraph of what it was like.

    I feel like royalty.

    Harry Potter meet Han Solo.
