Radcliffe Laughs Off Kissing Scenes
DANIEL RADCLIFFE was unfazed by his on-screen kiss in the upcoming HARRY POTTER movie - because appearing naked on Broadway has left him "blase" about filming intimate scenes.
The 19 year old disrobed onstage in New York and London's West End for his role in Equus, in which he played a 17-year-old schoolboy who is obsessed with horses.
The experience ensured Radcliffe was fully prepared for his big screen kiss in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, which hits movie theatres later this month (Jul09).
But his co-star Bonnie Wright wasn't as confident with the smooching shoot.
Radcliffe says, "By the time I made this film I'd done a nude scene on stage and a few kissing scenes, so I was totally blase.
"Poor Bonnie was very nervous. I hadn't factored that in. I'd taken it for granted that she'd be fine too. She'd never had to do that so I had to be calming with her and she did very well."
