Daniel Radcliffe says his steamy gay scenes in upcoming film ‘Kill Your Darlings’ are not shocking compared to what he did on his West End drama ‘Equus’.
It is a big departure for Radcliffe,who is best known for playing boy wizard ‘Harry Potter’ in the movies based on J K Rowling’s books.
The 24-year-old plays the late gay Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the upcoming John Krokidas-directed drama,which centers Ginsberg’s freshman year at Columbia University in 1943 when he first meets fellow aspiring writers Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan),Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and William S Burroughs (Ben Foster).
Radcliffe says he is happy with the way intimate scenes have turned out in the movie.
“I’m happy with the scene and how it’s turned out,” he said.
“There was full-frontal nudity. And I played a boy who had a sort of sexual-religious fascination with a horse. So the fact that this is getting more attention,it’s kinda interesting. This is tame by comparison!,” Radcliffe said of his role in the 2007 West End production ‘Equus’. PTI BK BK
