We’ve seen him in fantasy and period roles, but in What If, actor Daniel Radcliffe finally steps into the real world.
From kid wizard Harry Potter to Beat Generation poet Allen Ginsberg, British actor Daniel Radcliffe has made a career out of playing fantastic and period characters. Until now, that is.
In the new romantic comedy What If out in US theatres on Aug 8, Radcliffe plays Wallace, a young man damaged by previous romances who becomes enamoured with a girl (played by Zoe Kazan) already in a steady relationship.
The role also represents his first time playing a normal flesh-and-blood character, no magic, no period costumes – and the 25-year-old Radcliffe finds it totally refreshing.
