Video: Look at 'SpotLight on Daniel Radcliffe' From Whistler Film Festival, New Interview

Whistler Film Festival's YouTube has just posted a video of highlights from Day 3, i.e. 30th November.
Daniel's special Q&A occured on this day and some bits of the interview and his red carpet arrival can be viewed in the video below:

A new interview with The Independent has also been released online. have posted some quotes from the interview conducted in promotion of A Young Doctor's Notebook which will have it's first episode air this Thursday on Sky Arts. Daniel was the cover-star of the Radar magazine(Affiliated with The Independent) and this image can be found left while quotes are below.
On his favourite book, The Master and Margarita, having had an impact on a whole culture, just like Harry Potter:"It is," says Radcliffe, and he doesn't seem to flinch at the question, "something that has. It's in the collective consciousness of a generation, and there are words that are now filtering into the language, like Quidditch and Muggle. It's a shared set of references, I suppose, and it's quite universal. Potter was so massively wide-ranging, and read by everyone." I nod. I feel a bit guilty, but I still nod. It was read by pretty much everyone. Just not, unfortunately, by me. "I'm always pleased," says Radcliffe, and he sounds as though he means it, "to be associated with something that was so important. And it's not just a franchise. It's only really in the past few years that that word has been bandied around, and it makes everything seem very cold and business-like. We were always wanting to prove ourselves and get better with every film."
On fear being a motivating factor:
"Oh, it's very motivating," says Radcliffe, with an eagerness that has me smiling again. "I don't want anyone ever to say 'you know, maybe somebody could do Dan's job better than him'. In the past, they could legitimately say that at certain points. I haven't always been thrilled with my work. But the fear of not proving the people wrong who think you can't emerge from a franchise and do well, that's a very strong driving force."
