Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe plays a very different role in Horns, his next movie. His character is accused of the murder and violent rape of his girlfriend.
Entertainment Week has the exclusive interview in which Radcliffe concedes;
“It’s a very, very different type of part than anything I’ve done before,”
The fate of his girlfriend is just one piece of story. Ignatius “Ig” Perrish, for that is the name of the character, wakes one morning to find this demon horns growing from his forehead.
Frankly, gamers would have cottoned on to the demonic risks of anyone called Ignatius “Ig” Perrish.
There’s more. Ig also has the power to compel people to tell the truth – or force them to succumb to their darkest inner desires.
“To play somebody who, in the midst of a time in his life of great turmoil anyway, undergoes this horrific transformation into a devil character — it was very, very exciting.”
