Daniel Radcliffe is clearly not afraid of his own Harry Potter shadow. The young Brit star has graduated from Hogwarts with valedictorian box office honors, and now headlines an all-new, Victorian Gothic horror film: The Woman in Black.
"It will be interesting for people to see this film, I think, in terms of seeing me differently," a candid Daniel tells ET about escaping potential typecasting. "I hope people respond to it. I certainly look very different in this movie."
