Fry: 'Radcliffe's Performance Is More Than Nudity'
English actor/screenwriter Stephen Fry has urged London theatregoers to focus on Daniel Radcliffe's acting and not his naked body when they watch him onstage in Equus.
The 17-year-old Harry Potter star has attracted headlines for his controversial role at the Gielgud Theatre in the West End.
But Fry wishes audiences would concentrate on Radcliffe delivering an "amazing performance".
He says, "It's not just about the nudity.
"Yes, of course some people are going to say there's Harry Potter naked, smoking, saying f**k and simulating an orgasm - but let's not let that detract from an amazing performance, which is what he delivered.
"He was marvellous. He's got guts, I will say that."
