After charming audiences on Broadway and of course in the title role of the Harry Potter films, Daniel Radcliffe is set to scare moviegoers out of their minds in The Woman in Black.

In the CBS Films picture, Daniel plays Arthur Kipps, a new father in mourning over the loss of his wife who died during childbirth. The story follows the character as he travels to a remote village where he discovers that the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.

While this marks Daniel's first major venture into horror, the 22-year-old already has attained some words of wisdom concerning the genre.

"If you care about the character, you will be much more scared," Daniel says simply.

Director James Watkins concurred, saying, "I think it's important that with every character you see them from the inside out -- you know who they are and what they feel."

"It's [Daniel's] journey, and it's through him the whole story is told," says co-star Ciaran Hinds, who recalled being impressed by the British actor on the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. "There's not a scene that goes by that he's not in."
