The Ticket: Tribeca premiere photos
Photos of Dan from the premiere of The Ticket at Tribeca have been shared on Zimbio. The Hollywood Reporter has posted a new interview with Dan, chatting about The Ticket, Beauty and the Beast, and living in New York. Read it in full on THR.
In The Ticket, you play a blind man who begins to regain his sight. What’s the one sense you absolutely couldn’t live without?
Losing your hearing would be pretty weird. Living without listening to music would suck. I think I could live without taste. I could just eat my food.
It’s a pretty sexy movie. What would Maggie Smith’s Dowager Countess think?
I think she would love it. I think she’s secretly very kinky.
Any chance you would do a Downton prequel, movie or spinoff?
If it’s a prequel, then I’d have to play myself 10 years younger, which would be really hard. I think if they get someone else to play me, that would probably be a better idea. I guess I could do a ghost scene. Maybe Mary is making pottery and Matthew is at the wheel. It gets a little steamy. That should work.
You live in New York. Why?
I’ve lived in London for a long time, and I wanted to try living in one of the other great cities of the world. It’s always captured my imagination, and I feel very inspired here. I love it. Every day there’s always something weird and new here, and I think weird and new is good. I like being surrounded by weird, new things.
Fun fact: You’ve narrated more than 30 audiobooks, including Casino Royale. What’s the appeal?
It’s an intimate way of working and it’s an intimate way of receiving work as well. I’ve always enjoyed having voices in my ears, whether it’s a podcast or a great audio book. It’s just you in a booth, a tiny booth usually. It’s just you and the microphone for sometimes days. It’s a strange experience, but it’s also a beautiful way of getting inside a book. Studying and prepping for an audiobook is really just a fascinating thing to do work-wise.
