Last week was a very busy week for our own Daniel Huttlestone. With INTO THE WOODS being released on DVD earlier this week (if you haven’t bought it, leave work and buy it right now!), Dan had quite a few appearances and interviews…

First up, was Friday Download. It’s a cool CBBC series who have had great guests such as Ariana Grande and Ella Henderson, among others. The set is basically like a student house with couches, guitars and table football. Very fun and some talented kids presenting the show.

Next up was The Paul O’Grady show. Alongside Dan, on the couch was Martina Cole, one of the UK’s top selling authors, and Alfie Boe. Dan and Alfie have previously worked together on the West End in Les Miserables. Paul didn’t miss an opportunity to make a good-hearted dig at Alfie; from the fact that Dan was cast in the film and he wasn’t (Hugh Jackman was cast), to how Dan has worked with some of the top people in the business (2 words: Meryl Streep).

There was also an interview with Claudia Winkleman for BBC Radio 2′s Arts Show. Claudia was great and asked questions about the making of Into The Woods and working with such an amazing cast (she was very happy when Dan mentioned Anna Kendrick was a pleasure to work with!)

Overall a fantastic week, and if you missed any of the interviews, you can catch them all on the individual channels iPlayers.
