British actor Daniel Radcliffe has become one of the busiest actors in the industry these days, taking on a number of roles in some very interesting projects indeed. In his latest movie, Daniel takes on the role of the character Igor in the new Frankenstein movie and it seems that shooting the movie was not the most comnfortable of experiences for Radcliffe.
As most of you will be well aware, Igor does not have great posture and has a sort of forward lean and head tilt, which Daniel Radcliffe had to replicate for the role. Daniel has now opened up about having to shoot for so long win such an unnatural posture, admitting that he now has a neck problem because of it.
During a recent interview with Playboy magazine, Radcliffe explained, "If you do something that puts you in a little bit of pain, it makes you feel as though you're working slightly harder than you normally do as an actor. I did the play The Cripple of Inishmaan for four months in London and never had any physical problems. Doing what I did on Frankenstein for three weeks was a f**ker. There's a crick in my neck now that was not there before."
While Daniel Radcliffe plays the role of Igor in Victor Frankenstein, fellow British actor James McAvoy plays the role of Victor von Frankenstein, while the supporting cast features the likes of Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, and Charles Dance. Victor Frankenstein has been directed by Paul McGuigan, based on the Max Landis screenplay, with the movie opening on November 25 in the US and on December 3 in the UK.
