Daniel Radcliffe: 'Cripple of Inishmaan' Role Was 'Intimidating'

Daniel Radcliffe is all smiles at the opening night after party for The Cripple Of Inishmaan held at The Edison Ballroom on Sunday evening (April 20) in New York City.

The 24-year-old actor recently opened up about the intimidating role as the character of Billy.

“Walking into a roomful of Irish actors to do a read-through of an Irish play was probably one of the more intimidating things I’ve done. The most challenging part is just getting inside his head — as with any character,” he shared.

Daniel added, “Billy’s the smartest, wittiest, most compassionate person on the island, but he lives with a disability, so people dismiss him. In talking with friends of mine, some of whom live with a disability, the thing that came up again and again was how you are perceived.”
