The leading actor in JK Rowling’s screen adaptation of the Harry Potter franchise will hit UK screens again this week in a new book-to-film interpretation.
Director James Watkins has re-imagined Susan Hill’s chilling horror novel The Woman In Black for cinema goers, with Daniel Radcliffe starring in the main role of Arthur Kipps.
The plot centres on the death of Mrs Alice Drablow, who proceeds to haunt the young protagonist right up until she has caused him devastating grief and heartache.
Radcliffe revealed he was excited about moving on from his days as Potter, admitting audiences might initially find it difficult to envisage him in his first role since the franchise ended last summer.
He told denofgeek.com: “I was never under any illusions that this would be the one film that I would do and everyone would say ‘Oh, he’s no longer Harry Potter’.
“I don’t think that’s going to happen, but I think it will start that.”
The Woman In Black hits cinemas across the UK from Friday (February 10th).
