In an interview with Out Magazine, a publication which focuses on gay interests, Radcliffe was asked about reception to his newest film Kill Your Darlings in which the actor plays a gay character.
“You never see a gay actor getting asked what it’s like to play straight — to my knowledge, at least, there is no difference in how heterosexual and homosexual people fall in love.”
"this moment didn’t feel anachronistic, or GLAAD-approved, or even brave; it felt true. He wasn’t begging for a few scraps from the tolerance table. He was saying "This is who I am, whether or not anything happened, and whether or not you approve." […] And I don’t know that I’ve come across many scenes better than this in all my decades of watching TV and making it, too. It’s an irony of storytelling, or maybe of life, that at what would seem to be his moment of greatest powerlessness Thomas Barrow is at his most powerful, as he stands behind his life, claims it, doesn’t let it down." - (x)
