Boy Wizard all Grown up

... and hasn't he matured *hem* nicely? Courtesy of superfoo comes this raahther lovely (anyone else of my generation remember the Typhoo tea ads?) pic of our Daniel Radcliffe in his new incarnation as sex symbol, in his role in Equus, put discreetly behind the cut





No wonder the society matrons are worried about what to tell their children. I should imagine they're locking up their daughters as we speak :)

Of course, the whole point about Equus is that Alan is the opposite of a sex symbol - he's a loser who can't even - ahem - keep it up when the girl seduces him, which is why he blinds all the horses.

Peter Firth did the role originally (Harry in Spooks/MI5)as this picture shows. My bet is he was better than Daniel will be.

Incidentally, my tame fifteen-year-old took one look at the set of promo shots on the theatre website and announced "He is so not fit!"

Oops. I've just given away the big climax. (To coin a phrase. *g*)

To him the horses have taken the place of God, and his confusion about sex and religion create a powerful and disturbing mixture.

It really is worth reading, if you can't see it. The horses are amazing, though, in a live show - men with wire-frame horses' heads and hooves, thus eight feet tall in effect.

Little scrawny and young for my tastes ... but pretty. I can understand Harry slash fic much better (not that I wasn't addicted to a couple of f-list writers already) seeing these pics, though.

I definitely am in agreement on Peter Firth, though. Radcliffe looks too sure of his sexuality, where Firth had a more androgynous look. OTOH, I think that there's a lot to be said for having a tormented character whose body says, "male" because it makes the audience question their own ideas of appearance and sexuality.

We're reading the play in a couple weeks. Am looking forward to it.
