Daniel Radcliffe to Bare All in A West End Play

July 29, 2006 05:02:38 GMT

Daniel Radcliffe will make his stage debut in Peter Shaffer's "Equus".

Daniel Radcliffe, the magician in the hit movie "Harry Potter", is about to make his stage debut with Peter Shaffer's "Equus" in London's West End Theater in March next year.

There in the drama, about a stable boy's erotic fixation with horses, Daniel will play a mentally disturbed boy, Alan Strang, who pokes horses in the eye with a metal wire and strides them naked for sexual thrills.

"It is an extraordinary play, and he's very much looking forward to the role," Radcliffe's spokeswoman, Vanessa Davies, said Friday July 28th. "He is maturing as an actor and beginning to take on new and challenging roles."

Also set to star in is Richard Griffiths, who plays Harry's Uncle Vernon in Harry Potter. The actor has been tapped to play the psychiatrist who interviews Daniel's role.

Damn right Disgruntled man, It seems that all Daniel wants to achieve is a reputation as a Animal Intruding Scoundrel. First Wizardrey and now THIS!? Put your pants back on Daniel, its not big and its certainly not clever

That is a little gross when it says "poking them" and it can be disturbing.

um, that's a little gross. Although I am very excited to see Daniel in something other than Harry Potter. I was a little afraid that he'd be typecasted as Harry forever. I wish him good luck, and I hope this new project does well.
