‘The Boy Who Lived’ has already proved that he can adapt to other roles in movies away from the Harry Potter series, but now Daniel Radcliffe is also proving he can rock a new hair ‘do! Well, it’s for a new movie role but we’re still excited to see it.

We all know the generation-shifting adaptations of J.K Rowling’s novels are what catapulted Daniel Radcliffe into superstardom, but now he’s moving further and further away from the series in an attempt to prove himself as a flexible and talented actor. From genuinely frightening horror films to gay-sex scenes, Daniel Radcliffe has already moved forward. In his new movie, Frankenstein, Radcliffe plays Igor, the assistant of James McAvoy’s Victor Frankenstein.

Although some fans of the child-star are still trying to get used to seeing him sporting a chin length bob, he has had it for quite a while now as he was interviewed with it on The Graham Norton Show last year. He was spotted filming new scenes in London recently and he joked that he has been struggling to manage his hair extensions at the WhatsOnStage Awards last week!

To those who think this isn’t a good direction for the actor in terms of style, don’t worry, because he agrees! He said, “I don’t mind how it looks but I mind dealing with it. I don’t know why any man would have it voluntarily.”

He continued, “The amount of work it takes, having to dry it – doing anything to it is a f**king nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn’t be growing my hair this long in my own time.”

The film, written by Max Landis and directed by Paul McGuigan, will also star Sherlock stars Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss and Downton Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findley. It is due to release in January 2015! We’re stoked to see Daniel further his diversity and add another great movie to his growing list.
