- During Wired’s autocomplete interview, Daniel Radcliffe revealed his favourite “Harry Potter” film.
- The actor said that he loves “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” but he’s also a big fan of “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.”
“I love it because of the relationship of Harry and Sirius [Black, played by Gary Oldman],” he explained. “And you get a lot of Gary Oldman in that movie. That was my favourite one, probably to film as well.”
- The fifth “Harry Potter” movie has the lowest score of all installments on Rotten Tomatoes, while the final film has the highest score.
“I love the last one [“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2], but I also really love the fifth, which is not a lot of people’s favourite, I kind of realise,” he said while participating in Wired’s autocomplete interview. “I love it because of the relationship of Harry and Sirius [Black, played by Gary Oldman]. And you get a lot of Gary Oldman in that movie.”
Radcliffe added: “That was my favourite one, probably to film as well. We had a really, really good time making that one.”
Previously, the 29-year-old actor elaborated on filming the fifth movie with Oldman and said that the death of Sirius was “definitely the hardest” demise to get over in the series.
“At the time, I didn’t know if I’d be working with Gary Oldman again, and that was very sad, and I adored Gary, and working with him was an incredibly formative experience in my life,” Radcliffe explained.
While doing a Reddit AMA in 2014, he also said that his favourite scene to film in the entire franchise involved the ones that took place in Gringotts, when Harry, Ron, and Hermione tried to disguise themselves and break in.
“It’s a silly one, but doing all the Gringotts stuff in the last movie with Rupert [Grint] and Helena [Bonham Carter] and Warwick [Davis] and Emma [Watson], that was like a really fun time. We were all enjoying ourselves in that, it’s an action sequence so it was quite, it was more of a technical challenge than an emotional one, so it was a lot of fun to get right.”
In 2014, the actor also said that his least favourite movie is “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” and it’s “hard to watch” because of his performance.
“I’m just not very good in it,” he told the Daily Mail. “I hate it”
Radcliffe elaborated, adding: “My acting is very one-note and I can see I got complacent and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across. My best film is the fifth one because I can see a progression.”
Despite Radcliffe’s fond memories on the set of “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” the fifth instalment has the lowest score on Rotten Tomatoes, with a critics rating of 77% an an audience score of 81%. On the other hand, the actor’s other favourite “Harry Potter” movie, “Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” has the best reviews. The film has a critics score of 96% and an audience score of 89%.
