Harry Potter Is All Growed Up, And There Is A Picture To Prove It

Daniel Radcliff is embarking on a fantastic new adventure, the adventure of trying to transition from internationally recognizable child icon, to an actor that people will accept in roles other than a young wizard. It is going to be difficult, but he has begun shooting the ghost story “The Woman in Black” for Hammer Films, and the first image from the English set is making the rounds on the internet. He looks kind of cool and spooky.

Radcliffe … plays a young lawyer named Arthur Kipps who is ordered to travel to a remote village and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in the client’s isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover tragic secrets, and his unease grows when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black.

The jump from child actor to successful grown-up star is notoriously treacherous. For every Leonardo DiCaprio or there are a dozen Gary Colemans. (Remember when Haley Joel Osment was nominated for an Oscar?) Still, the core cast from “Harry Potter”, Radcliff, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson, seem like they might have the talent to actually pull it off. I’m rooting for them more than any of those “Twilight” kids.

    Looking like a MAN there Potter! Glad he’s not being seen as just Harry Potter. He’s a decent actor as is most of the cast and they should all do well in future endeavors.

    I agree Dedpool, people dont give enough credit for these actors from Harry Potter. Compare to the acting in Twilight there a huge difference! So wait and see how many movies you see both casts in 5 years…
