Yahoo has a new interview up with Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) where he discusses why he decided to make "The Woman in Black" his first post-Harry Potter film:

Radcliffe said, "It was certainly not a part that people can really compare to Harry… But [the] main attraction, to be honest, was simply the story, and how compelling it was, and being a part of a really, really good horror film."

In "The Woman in Black," Radcliffe plays Arthur Kipps, a lawyer whose wife has died leaving him with a young son.  He is sent to a small village to sort out the affairs of a deceased client, but as he delves into local secrets he encounters a ghostly presence that foretells a deadly curse.  Radcliffe called the film's script "a character-driven, well-written horror film that had the capability of being just as scary as any Paranormal Activity,' or any of those films that have recently come out,  while also having a depth of character that you don't often find there."

Radcliffe also discusses how Adrian Rawlins (James Potter) played Arthur Kipps in the 1989 television movie of "The Woman in Black":

Radcliffe recalled that he had finished work on the final film, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," and was preparing for this when he learned this fact.  He said, "I went online and, saw, suddenly, yes, Adrian Rawlins's name came up who was one of loveliest actors we've ever had on 'Potter,' and he played my dad."  Radcliffe said the link was entirely coincidental, but that "it was another bit of kinship we had there."

I am glad Dan is able to move on from Harry Potter and find other roles.

"Good lord, Arthur," he said softly. "What did you have to sell to get seats in the Top Box? Surely your house wouldn't have fetched this much."
