From ‘Harry’ To Horror: Daniel Radcliffe Takes On Radically Different Role

Let’s face it – the boy who played Harry Potter has become a man in front of our very eyes. And Daniel Radcliffe hopes that people will be able to see the distinction between him and the character he’s played all these years.

His new role in the film The Woman in Black is a darker, more adult film that’s in the horror genre. The film has been adapted from Susan Hill’s novel and Radcliffe told the LA Times, “It worries me [that fans will still see me as Harry Potter], but the challenge is to look like a dad and a young father. If i get that right, that is something that immediately separates me from Harry.”

I’m sure Danny will be fine. The good thing about him is that he’s worked on his acting chops over the years and done more bits and bobs that will probably prepare him from the transition of that…including what looks like an amazing 21st birthday he celebrated in London!
