Radcliffe detailed the procedure he used to learn how to play the accordion when asked about it.
Radcliffe said, “It was amazing, but it was incredibly hard. I’m fortunate to have a friend who is self-taught on the accordion and has a few extras, so he just gave me one to keep for a while. Despite how challenging it is, I was able to learn what I required to play those song fragments. When Al approached me as we were performing a song for the first time and said, “That’s all on the left hand,” I had just learned one song on the right hand, and I briefly considered losing my mind. It was fantastic except for that. Evan also got to hear me practice!
Co-star Evan Rachel Wood quips, “Yes, we shared a trailer, so I got to hear the accordion practice all day.”
