Daniel Radcliffe - Daniel Radcliffe's Snake Hunt On Horns Set

Daniel Radcliffe had to deal with sneaky snakes on the set of his new film Horns after a reptile went missing for hours.

The Harry Potter star has wrapped shooting on the dark new thriller, in which he plays a horned man accused of his girlfriend's murder.

Radcliffe had to deal with 100 snakes during filming, but one escaped and left the cast and crew hunting for it for hours.

He tells Total Film, "It was quite tense. We were bringing exotic snakes into Canada and letting them all loose. We had 100 snakes and we had to leave with 100.

"We were filming in a place with so many nooks and crannies for snakes to get away that we spent about half an hour after we finished filming that night looking for the last snake... It had hidden itself under the fire to stay warm!"

However, the Brit insists he enjoyed getting up close with a python: "I actually loved snakes in the end. For the last third of the movie I have a 6ft python wrapped around me - which is the greatest prop any actor has ever had."
