Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe & Director Selected On-set Playlist

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe took a tip from Renee Zellweger for his new movie Kill Your Darlings and selected songs perfect for every scene.

Director John Krokidas worked with his leading man on the playlist to help the young actor get into character as Allen Ginsberg.

The moviemaker reveals, "It's a method we borrowed from the actress Renee Zellweger, where we picked a song for every scene. We talked about the objective and then I had to pick a song that he had a personal connection to and we thought fit the scene.

"He would listen to the music right before we went on set. A lot of the songs that I picked ended up being in the movie. I got to hire the composer who worked with so many of the bands that were in my playlist as I wrote and made the film.

"The song that's in the closing credits, Don't Look Back Into the Sun by The Libertines, was a song that was important to me because I saw the central relationship between Allen Ginsberg and Lucien Carr not too dissimilar from the singer and the guitarist in that band (Pete Doherty and Carl Barat), who had historically a very close emotional and volatile friendship which ultimately informed their music."
