Radcliffe: 'Spooky New Role Will Vanquish Potter'

DANIEL RADCLIFFE is looking forward to filming his upcoming role in THE WOMAN IN BLACK because he's convinced the spooky film will free him from the shadow of HARRY POTTER.
The 21 year old has played the character for more than a decade and he recently completed filming on the final installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.
He's lined up numerous new projects including a leading role in a frightening new adaptation of Susan Hill's classic novel.
And Radcliffe hopes the spooky part will finally free him of his connection to the Harry Potter franchise.
He tells the Los Angeles Times, "It worries me (that fans will still see me as Harry Potter), but the challenge is to look like a dad and a young father. If I get that right, that is something that immediately separates me from Harry."
The film's screenwriter, Jane Goldman, adds, "I think there's a clear-cut demarcation. He was playing a boy in the Potter films or perhaps a young adult. Here, he's playing a man. Also I think in general today audiences know actors much more as individuals, there's an awareness of them apart from their roles. Dan is a brilliant actor, and he's much more than the person who played Harry Potter."
