Time Out towers was buzzing with fevered excitement today as none other than Mr Daniel Radcliffe was in the office to guest edit an upcoming issue of Time Out magazine – ahead of the release of ‘The Woman in Black’ on February 10. I am ashamed to say that I haven’t actually watched any of the Harry Potter films (I failed to mention this to him), but was still a tad overexcited to meet the man behind those legendary round glasses. And what a lovely chap he was.
First off, Dan was suited and booted to be shot by our in house photographer Rob Greig. This guy certainly knows how to strike a pose.
He graciously paused to have his picture taken with a superfan (aka our usual Editor Tim Arthur).
Next on the agenda was a tour of the office to meet the gang and see our impressive collection of magazines.
With a few pauses to sign autographs for *ahem* friends.
On finding out about our film team’s heroic Harry Potter Marathon, Dan pointed to the bottle of whisky and remarked how that probably helped to get through all of the films back to back.
He braved an editorial meeting with all of the section editors to discuss the upcoming magazine and thought of some cracking ideas.
I’d love to tell you all the other fun stuff we got up to and great stuff we came up with today but it’s a big surprise. To see his magical vision for the magazine, you’ll just have to wait until February 9 for the exclusive Daniel Radcliffe excitement. Watch your back Tim Arthur, there’s a new head honcho in town.
