Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe shocked quite a lot of people when it was announced that he would be starring in the Indie movie The Woman in Black but Daniel has revealed why he chose to do the film. Daniel admitted that it was important for people to get used to him playing other characters, other than that of Harry Potter.
Radcliffe explained, “It is slightly bizarre. When I got the script I did think it would be a bit of a leap for everyone to see me as a dad when they had seen me in a schoolboy outfit for the best part of 10 years. I never thought it would change people’s opinion of me, but it is a good start. It’s a very different sort of film for people to see me in but there is never going to be one part that completely separates me from those 10 years of my life.”
He added, “So it’s more about getting people accustomed to seeing me in different films and keeping busy.” Daniel Radcliffe has been enjoying a lot of success from The Woman in Black, which stayed top of the UK box office for another week and has currently grossed over $55m worldwide. Daniel has previously stated that he would be happy to do Indie movies for the rest of his career.
