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

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.”

Daniel Radcliffe takes a bow with his cast mates during the first preview of The Cripple of Inishmaan held at the Cort Theatre in New York City on Saturday night (April 12).

The 23-year-old actor stars as the title character in the funny and tragic play, which follows a young, disabled Irish orphan named Billy (Radcliffe) as he dreams of a brighter life in Hollywood.

“It’s not just about putting on a mechanical thing,” Daniel shared with the NY Daily News. “It’s as much about the mind-set as the physical aspects. I was never going to say no to playing such an amazing character, but I’m aware that there are disabled actors out there that would love to play this part. People out there really live with this condition. The pressure to do something authentic is something I really feel.”

“I would love to do a big film musical,” Daniel told Entertainment Weekly. “I think when they’re done right, they’re incredibly exciting and fun and cool. Everyone thinks of the ones that come to mind immediately like Grease and things like that, but what was that slightly bizarre but wonderful John Turturro film? Romance & Cigarettes. It’s a bizarre musical, and I love weird, interesting, different stuff like that.”

Earlier in the month, Daniel let his hair loose while walking on the set of his upcoming film Frankenstein at Manchester Town Hall in London, England.

Daniel Radcliffe Turns Into Sirius Black for 'Frankenstein'

We knew that Daniel Radcliffe‘s new look looked really familiar — just like Sirius Black!

The 24-year-old actor was spotted filming for his new movie, Frankenstein, in London on Wednesday afternoon (February 26), and looking a lot like his fictional godfather from Harry Potter.

“I don’t mind how it looks, but I mind dealing with it. I don’t know why any man would have it voluntarily,” Daniel told the Telegraph about the longer hair. “The amount of work it takes, having to dry it – doing anything to it is a f–––––– nightmare.”

He continued, “I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn’t be growing my hair this long in my own time.”
