'How to Succeed' Press!
"It was a matter of putting in the time so I could develop the confidence," Radcliffe says. "My dance teacher keeps telling me, 'If you're smiling, your feet could be doing pretty much anything and no one will care.' But if you have that rigor mortis look of concentration, it doesn't work."
"I've always thought that as long as directors and casting directors don't see me as just Harry Potter, I'll be OK," Radcliffe says. "People have shown a lot of faith in me, and I owe them a huge debt. They're letting me prove that I'm serious about this."
"No, no," he replied. "I mean, singing, I can do. But dance took a lot of work. I worked for about a year and a half with two dance teachers, one after the other, to get half-decent. And now, hopefully, you know, I’ll be able to surprise a few people."
"I don’t Twitter, or Tweet," Radcliffe said. "I think Twitter is a really strange thing, because there are certain people in the world who are naturally epigrammatic, and can say things very concisely, and very brilliantly, in natural space and time. But I think they are a very small number of people."
