Dan Radcliffe Talks "The Cripple of Inishmaan"

In a new interview, Dan Radcliffe spoke about his news stage role as Billy in "The Cripple of Inishmaan":

Radcliffe was speaking as he  prepared for his latest onstage  role as Billy, a lame village idiot  who dreams of becoming a film  star, in Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan, which is to open next month in London’s Noël Coward Theatre.

In the play, Billy is slapped around by one of his aunts, played by Gillian Hanna, whom Radcliffe had to persuade to hit harder: “All of that getting beaten up stuff is brilliant. I encourage people to just hit me harder. The actress, Gillian Hanna – she’s not going to do permanent damage by smacking me in the head. She doesn’t like hitting people, understandably, but I’ve got her into it now, I think.”

Radcliffe also spoke about a potential tattoo he'd like to get, and his aspirations for fatherhood. You can read the rest of the interview here.

Ah, too bad he won’t be still in New York in mid-July when the stage adaptation of his favorite book, Bulgakov’s ‘The Master and Margarita,’ has its world premiere at Bard SummerScape. I was secretly hoping that he’d try out for a part in it, because he has been so vocal about how much he loves that novel.

It sounds like another bold choice of rôle. I love the way he keeps trying to learn more about his art.

I pray he meets the right woman for him to raise a family with. Lots of success with that. I hope that he continues to follow the road tht seems to make him happy. It seems sad though that he broke up with his long term girlfriend just last year – but we don’t know the situation.
