Radcliffe Hails Yates
DANIEL RADCLIFFE has hailed DAVID YATES, the latest HARRY POTTER film-maker, as the series' best director to date, despite their gruelling shooting schedule. The teen actor is amazed by Yates' relentless energy, but insists his attention to detail will make HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX the greatest wizard movie so far. And he credits the director with helping him better his acting skills. He tells Empire magazine, "We're doing the fifth Harry Potter at the moment, which is going really, really well. "The new director's fantastic. I've never been quite this pushed before, so regularly. He's really pushing Harry's emotional and psychological journey. But he also seems to have an incredible eye for sets and shoots and things."
