An actor prepares...with Radiohead

POSTED Dec 11, 2009

Just how DOES Harry Potter prepare for a stoush with Lord Voldemort?

According to actor Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the teen wizard, the answer is simple: "Lots and lots of Radiohead."

How about Tom Felton, who plays Potter’s arch rival Draco Malfoy...some speed metal perhaps?

Nope.

"I like my chilled acoustic music,” he said “Big fan of Jack Johnson."

Another favorite of Radcliffe’s during his prep time is the Godspeed You! Black Emperor album F♯A♯∞ (F-sharp, A-sharp, Infinity).

"It gets you into a deep, deep place of fear and sadness and anger, which is helpful sometimes," he said.

Lovely.
