Daniel Radcliffe 'Cheated' on Playing A Dad in 'The Woman in Black'

Daniel Radcliffe is followed by an apparition on the new UK poster for The Woman in Black.

The 22-year-old actor opened up to Empire about the new role and playing a father.

“I cheated a bit on that [playing a father],” Daniel shared. “I got my godson to audition to play my son … and he was very good and got the part! I’ve known him since he was a baby and there’s already a chemistry there; there’s a lot of love between us. I got very lucky on that.”

Daniel added, “I feel like I’ve landed on my feet with this being the first thing after Harry. Because this is very different, in that I’m playing a father and it’s a more grown-up film, but it’s not so scandalously different that people will say, ‘Oh, he’s just trying too hard; he’s trying to shock us into thinking he’s something else now.’ I think I’ve taken away some of the ammunition people can throw.”

The Woman in Black hits theaters in February 2012.

    And that’s so sweet that his godson plays his son in the movie.
