Is Daneil Radcliffe forever typecast as Harry Potter?

I was talking to a friend over the weekend about Radcliffe's new flick The Woman in Black and he said he just cannot see Radcliffe as anyone other than Harry Potter.

You think that Radcliffe will have as much trouble as Nimoy has had in getting people to picture him as anyone else other than Potter and Nimoy's Spock?

No - the success of The woman in black plus his roles in things like Equus and how to succeed in business without really trying suggest not.

I guess a shut-in might have a problem but normal people no.

^^ Agreed... I didn't see his stage plays, but I thought he was fine in The Woman in Black.. I think he made the right move to take on some challenging roles while he was also doing Harry Potter.. It got him some good notice and kept him from having to scramble to find decent parts, post-Potter...

I think I will have a much harder time accepting Emma in non-Hermoine roles than I will Daniel Radcliffe. Not sure why, though. Those three kids have their entire careers ahead of them, though. I hope they're successful.

I enjoyed Radcliffe in Woman in Black, but we did keep making Potter references, but that was mostly because it was a supernatural movie. I think he will be fine.

Re: Is Daneil Radcliffe forever typecast as Harry Potter?

Child actors in general have a hard time transitioning into long-lasting careers (for every one that succeeds, there are countless others that fail). I think Radcliffe does have the potential for a long and diverse career. I can see him eventually being a character actor that can alternate between leading and supporting roles.

Re: Is Daneil Radcliffe forever typecast as Harry Potter?

If he had done the role into his 20s it might be an issue, but I think it is easier for a child actor to reinvent themselves in adulthood than for an adult to do the same after a career-defining role.

Fifteen or twenty years down the line I'd like to see how he'd do as Bond.

Taking his clothes off was probably a good start on breaking it...

A 5'5 Bond? That'd be progressive.

I bet most of the Bond actors are shorter than they appear on the screen. That's what lifts are for.

Woody Allen played Bond. He's only 5'5".
