Daniel Radcliffe’s first post-Harry Potter movie will be opening next week. “The Woman in Black,” a dark thriller about a young lawyer and a vengeful ghost, opens on February 3rd.
“The Woman in Black” is Radcliffe’s first movie since the end of the Harry Potter series. The Denver Post reports that Radcliffe has done “How to Succeed in Business” on Broadway since ending Potter, but this is his first venture back to the big screen.
“I never expected the first thing I did after ‘Potter’ to be a horror film or anything like that. That was one of the reasons it was intriguing to me as well because it was so unexpected.”
Here’s the trailer for “The Woman in Black.”
“This film is a film that has a great story but it is driven by characters at the heart of it. It fit in perfectly. It was going to be filming when I was on break from finishing “Potter” and starring in “How to Succeed,” so it was perfectly timed out. Also, when I was reading the script, I was surprised to be enjoying a horror film because I have never gravitated towards that in my own life.”
Radcliffe’s role in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” has now been handed to Nick Jonas who made his debut last night.
Radcliffe has an enormous following of fans due to the success of Harry Potter and has received some acting acclaim for his role in “Equus.” But Radcliffe still isn’t sure about his acting talents, although he does say that he’s getting the hang of it.
“Sometimes I really feel like I’m getting the hang of it, because I never really had a process. My process was mainly that I hit my marks and I said my lines. So I’m kind of trying to find a process that allows me to find a sure fire way into a character, if it doesn’t come easily.”
