star Daniel Radcliffe has given his wand the axe to play a fully matured man in
Woman in Black
. The star plays Arthur Kipps in the film, a young lawyer who is ordered to travel to a remote corner of 1930s England to deal with a recently deceased client’s papers.
But he soon grows uneasy when he learns the local village is held hostage by the ghost of a scorned woman set on revenge.
Daniel, however, is worried that his ‘Harry Potter’ fans will have a hard time accepting him. “You know, it is weird but when it’s become such a part of your life, it feels almost the same as saying goodbye to your teenage years and it is very sad but it is also an inevitability,” Radcliffe said on the UK set of his new movie.
“And yeah, while I had an amazing time, 10 years is enough to spend with one character. I loved every second of it but I’m excited about moving on more than scared or upset.”
“I think it’s one of the great challenges to get people to buy me as something else. [I’’m playing a] father and widower, two things I don’t have direct experience of,” he added.
