London Premiere of The Woman in Black
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has said it feels “very natural” to be moving on in his acting career, away from the character who has made him a global name.
The 22-year-old actor stars as widowed father and lawyer Arthur Kipps in the new Hammer horror adaptation of the gothic ghost story The Woman In Black, directed by James Watkins.
It is Radcliffe’s first film role since the final Harry Potter movie was released last year, and fans of the boy wizard lined the red carpets at London’s Royal Festival Hall, brandishing Harry Potter memorabilia to be signed.
Radcliffe said of his new role: “It felt very natural to be stepping into another character and starting this next phase of my career.”
