Last night we were waiting on the search warrants. We had the whole family. It was going down… today. Everything finally began to snowball together three days ago. First one witness came forward, then a second, then the third came in with solid proof.
Shit went down a few hours ago. Apparently, they knew we were coming. The Sparr family is gone. All of the evidence against them is now speculative. Four witnesses are dead. Another two are missing. What do you mean, bodies? He chose his words carefully. Her body is missing. It looks like they went over the cliff. It was a quick job. Did you check their house? Thoughts quickly come to me.
I just saw both Jessa and Travis yesterday. We were all talking about how fast our high school grad is coming up in a few months. For siblings, they are almost inseparable. Twins who look nothing alike but finished each others sentences at every turn.
When I started this undercover op, six months ago, I never expected to meet someone like Jessa. I was just a kid myself at 23 and I was five years older than her and her brother. It's ironic that, having grown up as Potter, a leading man being paid leading man's wages and then somehe is now establishing himself as a fine character actor, the type who plays the second or third lead, or the quirky cameo, not quite handsome enough to be a romantic lead.
In short, the type who can make a decent living but would never command the salary Radcliffe did as a teenager. The two performances I watch in quick succession could not be more different.
In Kill Your Darlings he is the nerdy, needy young Ginsberg, desperate to hold on to his gorgeous, enigmatic boyfriend. As Cripple Billy, he is rural Irish, physically twisted, carrying a useless leg and hopelessly in love with a local girl who mocks him. For once, he even looks different in Kill Your Darlings — curly hair, lips made up to appear fuller, very Jewish. I'm Jewish by blood, but an atheist. There was a great Peter Ustinov quote where he said the Jews have had the luxury of giving the world two of the most influential people, in Jesus Christ and Karl Marxand following neither of them.
He didn't go to university, but says he discovered the joy of learning for learning's sake when he was tutored on the Harry Potter sets. AP As an only child, he spent most of his time talking to adults and has always felt older than his years. Both acted when they were children, too, and are now his managers. He says he was unconfident and largely unhappy at school.

If it was, you must have a terrible life. That was one of the things I loved about Potter initially, it got me out of school. Warner genuinely didn't know at that stage if they were going to make more than one film. If it flopped, then they certainly weren't going to put up all that money again. And actually there aren't many great parts out there for teenage boys, certainly not as good as Harry Potter. By then he felt he was mastering his craft. Actually, he says, it wasn't growing up in public that he found so difficult as learning how to act in public.
What does he look back at with embarrassment? My acting lessons are there for all to see. That's essentially what the films are, us learning to act.
Rupert was the most outgoing of the three of us; he had this confidence when it came to comedy, and he still does. That's a learning curve.
You can't dwell on the things you're not happy with, though; you've got to move forward and get better. At times Harry was so understated, he verged on the torpid.
In his most recent work, minimal gestures are used for maximum effect. That's never going to be the way I work. But I think I've got better at striking a balance where I'm being real but still being expressive. After all, armies of reporters were assigned to chronicle every drink, scrap, falling out, romance, rumour in the lives of Radcliffe, Watson and Grint.
There were stories of him being drunk, stoned, depressed, going off the rails. In the past, he has said that at 18 he lost it, was drunk on set and blacked out through alcohol. He stopped drinking in I tell him I've read loads of pieces where interviewers ask him about drink and he goes all surly. Nobody but me knows what happened. I thought the narrower the gap between people's perception of me and the reality of my life, the better, but actually, the more information you put out there, the more people have to speculate on.
And I don't like being talked about, I don't put myself out there to be judged. Just recently, there was a picture in the Daily Mail of him leaving the theatre looking dishevelled, accompanied by video footage of him "playing the bongos during a wild night out".
Would Michael Fassbender do it? There are certainly times when the fame aspect gets on top of me, and gets overwhelming. He says he didn't have the same freedom to experiment and make mistakes.

And there are a few guys who come up to me and they've taken their brave pills, so they think they're going to be really witty and tell a Harry Potter joke, and I just stare at them now, like, are you really doing this?
I've heard every single one, you will not make me laugh. He's outside having a fag, it's pouring down, and some wag will ask if he's got a spell to banish the rain. On the whole I'm very lucky because I'm part of a franchise which is really well liked. I'm not a fighter. I believe I'm articulate enough to talk myself out of most things.
I couldn't because there's a level of anxiety I get when I go out. Even if the people aren't remotely interested in you, it's in your head, and if you start dancing, you think everyone's going to say, look at Harry Potter, dancing like a twat. Because of Rupert's red hair, it's hard for him to go out without being recognised.
I watched him when we were at Reading festival one year and he walked across the VIP area and everybody turned around because he sticks out. And Emma gets attention because of the rabid male fan-base she has. Radcliffe says he didn't see the interview, but he knows how she felt. Radcliffe says he doesn't discuss relationships with the media. Everybody just came out and said, oh well, he's gay. The pluses so obviously outweigh the minuses, it's not even worth asking whether he'd do it all again, given the chance.
There is something I'm curious about, though:
