Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe on set of his late film The Woman in Black: Talking on the UK set of his new movie, The Woman in Black, the 21-year old actor has clearly morphed from twee schoolboy to fully matured man – complete with a face full of stubble.

In the film Radcliffe plays Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer who is ordered to travel to a remote corner of 1930s England to deal with a recently deceased client’s papers. However, he soon grows uneasy when he learns the local village is held hostage by the ghost of a scorned woman set on revenge.

The movie – based on the 1983 novel by Susan Hill and the following stage play which has run continuously for the past 22 years in London’s West End – is the first film role for Radcliffe post Harry Potter. And the heartthrob is worried that his 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,” says the star. “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.”

The stage version offers some serious thrills and chills and we’re expecting the same from the movie, which is incidentally being produced by Hammer studios. “I would call it a character-driven horror film along the lines of The Orphanage or The Others. It’s slow-burning and it’s very, very scary. It’s about loss, family and fear,” summarises Radcliffe.
