Actor impressed co-stars when he stripped off for new role

It seems that Daniel Radcliffe is doing a good job at leaving his specy Harry Potter image in the past.

The 17-year-old actor amazed his co-stars when he had to strip completely naked for his latest role in highbrow play Equus.

‘We had never seen him with his clothes off before,’ producer David Pugh said. ‘We all went “Wow”.

‘There was no hesitancy about taking his clothes off. He has a confidence in his own appearance. When that boy takes his shirt off, Harry Potter has flown out of Hogwarts for good.’

The play, which is about a stable boy being treated by a psychiatrist for his obsession with injuring horses, opens at London’s Gielgud Theatre in February.
