Daniel Radcliffe tells James Lipton on Bravo's Inside the Actor's Studio getting naked on-stage in front of many audience is "never be the most comfortable thing."
Portraying the character of Alan Strang in stage play "Equus", Daniel Radcliffe finds the nude scene he has to do in front of the audience as "never be the most comfortable thing." To James Lipton on Bravo's Inside the Actor's Studio, he says "Personally, not my thing. For some people it's great! But not for me" when referring to his nude scene on the Peter Shaffer's play.
And to overcome the apprehension, as he revealed to James, he trained for 18 months to make sure his body was built up for the role. He, moreover, also worked with a vocal coach. "I got kind of fit because I knew I'd be appearing naked," he confessed. "The play was there to do. Someone had to do it. If you take the job, you take everything that comes with it."
Addressing on the one thing that many people would like to know, which is what if he got "an erection on stage", Daniel said it never happened though he thought "that would be great". His full interview with James Lipton can be watched on Bravo TV.
Daniel Radcliffe, famous for his role as the boy wizard Harry Potter in "Harry Potter" movies, played the role of Alan Strang, a mentally disturbed boy who pokes horses in the eye with a metal wire and strides them naked for sexual thrills, in both Broadway and London's West End. Next for him is a reprising role in the next installment of "Harry Potter," titled "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince", which is slated for a July 2009 release.
