MuggleNet Throwback: Radcliffe gets scary
2010 was a big year for Daniel Radcliffe: The first of the final two Harry Potter films was released with overwhelming success, paving the way for Radcliffe’s release from the mega movie franchise. But beyond news of his iconic role as Harry, 2010 brought Radcliffe another challenge altogether, the challenge of the horror genre. It was all part of his casting in director James Watkins‘s horror flick, The Woman in Black, the subject of this week’s Throwback!
BBC News first broke the story of Radcliffe’s involvement in the project this week back in 2010 when they confirmed that he had landed the lead role of Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer who gets caught up in the mystery and scares of a ghost haunting. The movie became Radcliffe’s first role after the end of filming on Potter and has since become an iconic character for him outside of the wizarding world. The Woman in Black has grossed more than $54 million since its February 2012 release and has even earned a sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, which is slated for a 2015 release.
But was the movie Radcliffe’s most successful role since he hung up his glasses and took off the lightning bolt scar? You tell us! Radcliffe has starred in a number of roles in film, theater, and television since Deathly Hallows – Part 2 hit theaters, and each has been equally exciting. So from Kill Your Darlings to A Young Doctor’s Notebook or even his guest spots on The Simpsons, what has been your favorite Daniel Radcliffe role post Potter?
