Daniel Radcliffe's gay love scene in his upcoming movie "Kill Your Darlings" has stunned some of his fans, who are more used to seeing him as the geeky looking teenager Harry Potter.
However, this is not the first time that Radcliffe has taken on a role to step as far away as his stereotype as possible. Previously he took on a role in the theater for Equus, in which he played a scene where he stripped off completely naked. At that time many of his fans were also left stunned at him taking on such a different role that his Harry Potter character, but he was also given rave reviews by critics.
In his latest film Radcliffe takes on the role of homosexual, Allan Ginsburg.
"Kill Your Darlings" was screened at the Sundance Film Festival and received a positive reaction from dans, although most of the buzz among those who left the showing was about Radcliffe's performance as Ginsburg and in particular his shocking gay love scene.
Radcliffe has said about the scene, "It was something new … But you know what, we shot that whole scene in maybe an hour and a half so it was incredibly fast-paced. I didn't really have time to stop to think and worry about it."
During the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, the cast of Harry Potter cast took home their first Best Cast Award. While it had been 15 years since the first Harry Potter book was released and 11 years since the first film, the 2012 awards was the first that the Harry Potter cast took home a Best Cast award.
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and Tom Felton were all nominated for the MTV Movie award, which was received by Watson, the only cast member present at the awards. She remarked that she had never received a reward on behalf of such a large amount of people before.
Harry Potter however, still failed to win Movie of the Year, which went to "The Twilight Sage: Breaking Dawn Part 1."
